I wish you'd said that earlier as if you'd finished ahead of Sid I'd have just clinched the Year End Number 1 spot  ;-()

Edit- Doesn't matter as Retro's jump up the leaderboard was perfect for me  :)

There was 1 point during this 2 weeks when I was about mid table and BGT was at the top when I thought damn BGT is going to cut my lead dramatically  :rofl_2: then I caught her up and got it to a position where there was only really you that could stop me getting that number 1- I've only got to enter Madrid and get 1 more point from somewhere to guarantee the number 1 ranking now  :)

Hold on, Chris and kickserve:

Didn't we all agree earlier in the year we wouldn't be allowed to change picks for tactical purposes? I'm pretty sure we did, so should the rankings be re-done?

I 'changed' mine as a joke when Federer was up 2 sets and 4-0  :whistle: It didn't stand, hence the reason my points haven't changed since the last scoreboard. Now will you stop making an argument out of everything I post?

Kick's was a joke as you know now, mine was changed about 30 seconds after first posting it, and was purely me crossing the wrong name and putting Murray instead of Fed.

Here is my take on changed picks,no changing picks in the last 2 rounds.Any edit in a post & you lose your picks for that round.I think that should be a rule here.If that was made a rule none has a leg to stand on for editing picks.Before the last 2 rounds i dought it would make a difference.If someone made a mistake thay could pm KS.What does all here think??????

Usually we'd do blind picking for the leaders anyway Sid so they wouldn't be able ot be changed so I'd go for it as you say. If you're on about my pick being changed 1 minute later then you're having an absolute laugh. I'd have had 15 hours during that day to look at people's picks, I couldn't drop down the rankings and could only gain 1 place, so I had nothing to win or gain. I copied the original Murray vs Federer part and deleted Fed's name instead of keeping it so when I reread my post changed it to Fed and that was a minute later. I would never ever seriously go against Fed in a Grand Slam Final other than if the player on the other side of the net happened to be Rafa. How tactics could come into that then you'll have to tell me now?????

I lucked up on this tournament because usually I'm not that great!  But if Roger wins then I have a shot because you know I'm picking him to win every tournament! :rofl_2:
