7 points for a correct final pick, so the maximum score is 14. If you score 14 and Somil scores 0, you have the same score but you win on countback because you would've scored more points in the final round.

Picks as they came to me:

Somil
Federer
Williams

Kickserve
Nadal
Safina

Euroka
Federer
Safina

Reconquista
Federer
Williams

I guess then its a straight fight between the 2 Brits /English with Kick needing both Rafa and Safina to win, but Somil needing just Fed or Williams to win.

 :yahoo: Still fighting. I guess as we all picked differently, Somil would've had to pick Nadal/Williams to guarantee the win, just glad I'm the one who guessed his picks right.

I knew you knew what my picks would be, but I didn't change them because my combination seems likeliest to happen (in my opinion).

OK, everyone knows the two finals picks

Nadal-Federer
Safina-Williams

Any volunteers to take PM's? As Somil, myself, euroka and Reconquista can still win, we need somebody to take PM's of our picks. Somil, euroka and Reconquista, do not post picks yet, I will find somebody for us to PM our picks to.

I didn't want to make it look like I was putting in extra matches to give myself more chance to catch Somil.
