Hey garion, I hadn't updated the scoring thru 4R, so you've actually gone past Chris.
that's just crazy.  :shakey:

we'll see what happens by the semis or finals. Avatar of course isn't budging.  :mad1:

Yeah, Avatar is making a big of herself. I wonder if she even knows she's sweeping the games.

Can Avatar go wire-to-wire, or will she now surrender both crowns?

Scenarios:

If Li wins, Avatar wins.
If Clijsters wins, Chris wins!

Seems I've done pretty well over here even with my Vika going out earlier than I hoped and wanted! Guess it go Clijsters then!

Wow who would have ever thought I would win a prediction tournament where Maria and Victoria don't make it past the 4th round :rofl_2:

I guess Clijsters was huge for me but also Wozniacki, Zvonareva and Radwanska reaching the exact round I predicted they would was also pretty huge.

Thanks very much Bab for running the game for the 2 weeks and some fantastic updates I see looking back through the threads that I missed while I was away.

Thanks again Babs.  :) :) :)


3rd place. Not too shabby. I thought I'd do worse, since I picked Henin (stupid elbow!!!  :mad1: ).


Congrats to Chris! Good picking!!!  :)

Thanks Bab and thanks for running this game so well over the last 2 weeks and for awarding me my trophy :)) I look forward to 'trying' to repeat at Roland Garros.
