Madrid Pick 'em Competition
« on: October 11, 2008, 02:29:11 PM »
I thought we had better start this topic and event now since a few main draw matches will start tomorrow, with most first round matches being played on Monday. Kick has gone to Uni now so not sure how much he'll be able to select matches here so anybody want to start us off with 10 matches?

Thanks Somil for those  :) Maybe we should just have a match or two more in the 2nd round then to avoid people missing the last 2 picks on Monday or Tuesday?

I'll go with:
Gulbis
Kohlschreiber
Lopez
Simon
Llodra
Berdych
Nieminen
Robredo

Yeah I'm hoping Kick will still enter and if possible can carry on running the game to some degree. If not then we'll probably all chip in and do our bit  :)

My picks are:
Ernests Gulbis
Philipp Kohschreiber
Feliciano Lopez
Gilles Simon
Marat Safin
Tomas Berdych
Mikail Youzhny
Tommy Robredo

Self-praise is for losers. Be a winner. Stand for something. Always have class, and be humble.

Nope, sorry guys, don't think I'll be able to do the picks any more. Lectures during the day and either squash, tennis, poker or the pub most nights mean I could never keep up with running this as well. I'll try and keep my picks up to date though.

No worries Kick, I did think that might be the case now.
Anybody fancy keeping a leaderboard then this week? I can update the rankings at the end of the week and if need be I'll try to do the leaderboard too if nobody else wants to do it, but I won't be able to keep a leaderboard for the Paris event.
