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

If you stop to think about it, it's a mix of picking the top seeds to do their thing and a bit of luck selecting the one or 2 players who go deep unexpectedly.  If any of us were able to do it consistently we'd be making millions by betting on tennis.  That person does not exist.

Get your entry in first if you want the top spot, lolligagger. Check the entry sheet, it's in order of entry submitted. It doesn't start to reorder until there are score differentials.

You'll always be at the bottom because you wait to see what everyone else picks before you do anything.

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
