Afraid you can't have that over me any more kick as I posted my real pick in the thread a while back now... From a few years back. Somil, find the right place to discuss it then :)~

If I'd wanted to be really harsh, I'd have used your real picture with the same comment  :)~

Woah, 5 of us within 2 points. BTW, I take it that leaderboard includes the Bryans win?

Ok, I'm now in the position where if Murray and JJ win, I;m happy, but if Rafa and Serena win, I open up a nice big lead. Either way, I'm happy.

Yeah the only matches that are left to be added are the Murray vs Rafa match and then the 2 Finals  :)
