Actually, no. That's just annoying that I got all 5 of those picks right, but it's because in the interboard I'm the only one except maybe Borovnia that knows the scores all throughout the round.

I lost a title earlier in the year when my picks were in and Rafa was 4/4 in the 1st set when i picked him. Dont worry about it especially since theres plenty of points available now and ive hada shocking round so you could end up catching me very quickly.

Seriously, cheer up both of you and don't worry so much. It's just a GAME !
On a side note, I'm away from Friday to Tuesday so could somebody text me the pick em matches, and in the interboard I'll just have every player that is higher ranked.

Sorry edited leaderboard, noticed a mistake with conchita picks, she did score 0 this round, and I mistakenly thought she had picked Federer so she had scored 3 in the first post. Great round for BGT 5/6

Also, easiest pick Federer (83 %) toughest pick Monfils (8%) only Lugburz
