luvyoyoma1954   2

Easiest pick: Safin - 21 - 100%
Toughest pick: Melzer - 3 - kickserve, NJtennis11, sid - 14%



Thanks for that leaderboard Borovnia  :) I love how each time I have the same points as other people I always end up last of them all, anybody would think people love to see me well down these rankings  :rofl_2:

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)

I was only messing around really, joking that a few of you here would quite like to see me well down the rankings  :rofl_2: Thanks for the explanation and it makes perfect sense to me  :)

Li
Schnyder
Srebotnik
Bammer
Davenport
Wozniacki
Jankovic

Pennetta
Cornet
Safina
Williams

Sorry about that, I was planning on leaving it till tonight, to have more choice of mens matches, as it's a more ATP-heavy board. Should probably have posted an explanation yesterday.

Dammit - I've got 4 of 4 completed WTA matches right so far. A little peeved that i'll probably do worse on the ones you actually select knowing my luck. :Confused:
