Berdbrain should be castrated! With that game the only way he'll ever win another match is by making himself eligibile for the WTA :head-smack:

Berdbrain does exactly what it says on the tin  :whistle:

LOL i think many of us have picked Berdbrain 2 much.If he in picks in later comps,i dont think i will pick him v most players atm :(

I was going to pick Querrey when I saw Berdych's name there but must have had a rush of blood that screwed me up on this one  :mad1:

There is an explanation there, I normally enter picks as they come, then I use the "sort" command in excel with only 1 variable (total pts) The people that normally submit picks in the last instance, normally is shown behind by the end of the 1st rnd exception made I do an update in the middle of the round, then some people might be resorted if by that time they score better than others (you and me use to submit late, I should be the last as well, but I was a pt. up than my group in a previous update I did)
