pawan, your obstinate refusal to pick tie-breakers may finally come back to haunt you  :death:


I realize. Especially since Sid copied my picks.

That said, I understand why we need the tie-breaker and I also understand that I should be doing it with the spirit of the game as everyone is doing it, I just feel like its a little cheating. I personally would much rather be tied at first with 2 other people for having the same number of points than win because of a random darkhorse pick. Or at the very least, have the separation based on which of the two tied players picked the most number of correct quarterfinalists or sf or final etc. For instance I think myself and sid should be tied this tournament for having the same picks and not one of us winning because he picked Del Potro as his dark horse and I picked Soderling. But that's just my opinion, I am not against the tie-break method, just not for it. So if it does hurt me, I deserve it.

That said, since you insist, here are my tie-break picks, I have had an eye out on them from the start:

Fish
Tomic
Lopez

I looked at this last night and felt like I was in a good position to win.  If Fed had beaten Murray in the finals I would have won. Didn't really seem like a long shot at the time.  :rofl_2:

I don't. The TB applies only to 1st place. The other positions don't mean anything to me.
