Gawd, I suck at this game. But maybe now I can do something at this tournament. My ability to predict winners is just as good as Tomic's consistency in the game. Just look at my prediction for Tipsarevic as a winner last week. How could someone pick him as a tournament winner knowing his current shape? :rofl_2:

BTW, Congrats Nirjhor and Clash. Didn't get to say anything there before the threads were closed. :))

Don't be too hard on yourself, you're actually doing quite well so far in this one  :)

I'll add those, but they won't count  :)~

EDIT: Looks like I can't add them because I already deleted the rest of the scoreboard  :zipped:

Ah, ok Sir Dylan.  Thanks anyway.  I'll try to count my own.  I think I'm doing relatively well.  I had Djokovic going out early to Stan, but he got eliminated even earlier to Dimitrov.  As long as Stan wins, then I'm in good shape.

Wow, thanks Sir Dylan!  :not worthy:  I appreciate it.

I had myself for only 655.  I must have counted wrong.  :confused1:

I guess you did :dunno: I can have the system count it for me, but I can't put it in the leaderboard unfortunately :(

Btw, GOAT pick with Andujar in the QF! :not worthy:

Thanks :)  But I had a big fail with Monaco and Haas.  I thought Monaco was gradually regaining form/confidence, and Haas was ready to beat Ferrer after last week's triumph in Munich, but it was not to be. 

I won't claim responsibility for the Federer pick considering his baffling buffoon-like play. The first set was excusable due to rustiness. But after dishing the bread-stick in the second, he should have taken the 3rd easily if he only continued the variety (plenty of low slice, drop shots and volleying) and good serving he displayed in the second set.  But he reverted back to his first set attitude/baseline tactics, then forgot how to put 1st serves in and return serves without dumping them into the net and deservedly lost.  Credit to Kei, though; he was consistent.

Now I have to rely on Wawrinka and Nadal to come through, but Tsonga and Murray/Berdych will be a challenge.

BTW, I have myself with an unofficial 1150.

I don't know if I'll be catching Rome unfortunately. Not that it's a problem though, I can't win this game anyway.

Perhaps you should try to fill in the draw before it's released and see it that's an improvement? I'm considering doing so myself, couldn't be any worse than this  :rofl_2:.

Nope, you are good at this.  :))   Everyone makes some wrong prediction sometimes. It's natural. But that doesn't mean that you suck at this.  :)>>>>

Wow! General masterclass had made some great predictions!  :not worthy: He would've been on top position now if he was on time.  :60:

Story of my life general Nirjhor.  :) But thanks. 
Let's see what happens tomorrow.  I'd like to see Stan win it and make me wrong. 
But he looked all out today after that late, late night match yesterday.

So 1990 after the SF?  And a very small chance at 2390 if the Swiss should lose the Final? :)
Maybe I'll be just late for Rome as well.  Seems to work well... :)~   :))
