What are you doing a day late, Shankar?

You finished in 19th place.

i saw this just yesterday........monstertruck was challenging everyone to prove their predicting abilities........so i thought why not i do it once........

you said that i finished 19th but i see that i am there in the final 18? did you exclude anybody to give room for me?

Scooter and Luggy the only 2 that didn't have The Bird Man somewhere on their list!

when berdych was up 2 sets to love, you surely din't pick people out for including berdych in their list did you?

it was just one of those days where berdych had fits and collapsed like a buffoon instead of closing out the match........he would have made the semis at least had he won today.........he is that type of player........

I had him picked to go deep as well.  A very disappointing loss.  I think Scott and Luggy just got lucky! :))

Just goes to show ya, there are no guarantees (that's why they play the matches). ;-()

Precisely !! If that wasn't the case betting would have never existed if all results were readily written in the stone.

Special thanks to Babs for including my brother in. As soon as he gets to middle-school or high-school and starts going on the computer more frequently i'll have him join on and then he gets no tardy excuses, but for now he's just a little cutie who gets excited about all the fun stuff :)

I should post a clip of me and him rallying sometime, he's getting better really fast! I mean if he were in the draw instead of Berdych, I would totally pick my brother  :rofl_2: I think we are soon going to have a big debate in a few years about whose career would you rather have, Berdych's or Gasquet's.

Good stuff Professor!
Props to you for nurturing your brother's interest in the sport. ://
Looking forward to the clip of yous guys rallying. :))

Both the pros you mention seem the type to be content with their lot in life and not overly driven though they both have mad skillzzz.

Everyone pretty much has the same score until after 3R. For that reason, I don't bother posting standings until after 3R has been completed.
