I do notice now the womens doubles match is a big void, since they're not gonna play until finals. Bondarenko/Bondarenko will play Schiavone/Panetta in QFs and in the other side of the draw Davenport/Huber will play Ruano/Medina  :scared:

I noticed this, what was BGT thinking? :)~

We need one extra pick then when it comes to the semi finals- instead of the usual 3 we will need 4 picks to make up for it. So whoever does semi picks we need 4 of them.

All Mens and Mens Doubles semi's take place tomorrow and we already know 1 of the Womens Semi's so should we pick 4 of those to choose from? as otherwise semi picks are going to be 4 WTA matches.

Before you do BGT definitely include Zvonareva vs Dementieva as a WTA one and don't put a pick in which isn't possible until the final  :)~

I read the draw wrong. The Bondarenkos and Davenport/Huber were right next to each but on opposite sides of the draw.

That's a quarter final you know BGT but it will do for Friday and Saturday's picks. Then we'll just have 1 more round of Sunday's matches  :)

I have to be off town for the next 2 days, so I won't be able to update leaderboard. We have quarterfinals almost done, just 2 games left. I post a provisional leaderboard, just to be added last 2 results (Safina-Jankovic plus switzerland - india) so maybe helps in case:

Lugburz   41
BGT   41
NJtennis11   36
Somil   36
Dallas   33
Tennis4you   32
Chris1987   31
kickserve   26
Murrayfan11   26
conchita   25
Borovnia   24
sid   21

I'll try to post last picks tonight if I find a place with internet. In case I can't then please Chris, I'll take the higher rated thing.
