NJtennis11   36
Somil   36
Dallas   33
Tennis4you   32
Chris1987   31
kickserve   26
Murrayfan11   26
conchita   25
Borovnia   24

We usually only have 2 or 3 Final matches but with it being Mixed thought we go with all 4 so there's no real room for the Bronze matches, and also  the clash of semi finals tomorrow and Bronze matches might have been a little confusing  :)
