Almost all of us had this one so its not vital but good start as the Bryans have just taken the title  :)

Only Borovnia had Dlouhy/Paes, he's dropped 2 places.

Thanks Kick, had a feeling it was only Borovnia. Thats pretty good for me in the rankings though with Borovnia being one of my closest challengers  :)

Can I have a Djoko-Fed pick out of you yet? How long are you going to wait?

Is that so you can put it in your spreadsheet?

Yeah. It's not urgent, just making sure you're on the ball.

Woops, I haven't posted a Djokovic-Roddick pick. I'll go with Roddick

Also, I'll do the same as Murrayfan as I'm out til late tomorrow.

Nadal
Federer (I'll change this if Muller wins)
Bryan/Bryan
Williams
Dementieva

Black/Huber

Don't tell mummy!  :)~

 :rofl_2: Perfect advice I'd say  :rofl_2:

Tomorrow I'm being a good boy  :innocent: and going to my friends house to do coursework. We won't get any done though!  :rofl_2:

 :rofl_2: If your mum finds out you won't get any done she's going to want to know the sex of this friend  :rofl_2:

I'm trying to think of a clean joke on Practical Biology....

As hard as you try I don't think it will come out clean  :innocent:

I just got home, and my parents never found out that I was at a girl's house so everything's good :rofl_2: Not that anything happened, but I don't think they would be too happy about that.

Well since I won't be around a computer for the next week, I'll do my final picks here:

Women's final:  GO SERENA!!!!

Men's final:  If Roger is in the final against whomever... I'm picking Roger!

If Djokovic somehow gets by Roger (which I hope he won't)...I'll then go with him in the final against either Murray or Nadal.

Chris i would be pleased to give up being top or winning here for Andy Murray to win the USO.That would mean so much much more to me.In the uk i dont think we had a winner since the 1930s in the mens,thats way 2 long in my book.I just pray for a change we get a slam winner.I would think even the man upstairs might think its time ://

I know you definitely would have a Murray win over doing well in the Pick ems- I know just what it would mean to you if he does win this title. Just like I'd pick Maria over the Pick ems or any predictions games. Yeah the 930s and Fred Perry was our last champion so it would be fantastic for Andy to become the next either this year or within the next couple of years  :)

I'm the same as sid here, I'm never going to pick against Andy in this game for the rest of my career. That's why when Andy wins there's always the personal bonus as well as thew thrill and excitement I get when I watch or hear the result.

My pick for the womens final:
S. Williams
