Looks like you and the Shankman are in a battle for the trophy I usually claim.  No worries there's still time for me to catch the boafs of you. :))

it's not my fault if they decide to kill themselves.........i saw the draw and sensed that dolgopolov had an excellent chance to reach the semis, but he went down to that clown troicki which i still can't believe how it happened........

i also sensed that murray would be blasted by either of melzer or dolgopolov........if troicki could take murray to 5 sets, just imagine what dolgopolov or melzer would have done to him.......

berdych just needed to win his first round and he would even have ended djokovic's run, he's that type of player........simon ended just one round short, i had him for quarters.......

i don't think i did anything wrong, they just decided to hand their asses in silver platters to the opponents.......

i have to laugh at some folks here........the second place holder conchita din't even get the tournament winner right but ended up second, goes to show how flawed this contest is........if i am not wrong she picked djokovic for the winner.......even vsty did the same, or not? where's the predictions page again? 

look i can go with all the expected seeds to advance and play it protectively like most of you did........but that's not what i chose to........

i made some bold calls based on players' current strengths but sometimes not much can be done if they decide to beat themselves........

 

 
Marian Vajda to Novak Djokovic, "I saw you beat that man like I never saw no man get beat before, and the man KEPT COMING AFTER YOU! Now we don't need no man like that in our lives."

i demand french open to be renamed RAFAEL GARROS

Hey Shank what r u drinking?? Conchita finished 7th & my pick for Winner was Rafa & I was the only one to pick Fed as losing finalist apart from Pawan who picked Fed as the winner. If u look at my picks I had Almagro for SF whom I think not anyone apart from Babbs picked him. Look it's just predictions somebody is going to get it right & someone is going to lose & nobody is going to get a trophy to show !! Just relax & let's all hav fun !!! :)

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