Ahh, sorry Sir Dylan,  that should have been Raonic there, not Granollers.  Should I edit my post?

Since Raonic already played, it'd be unfair to change it :(

What are you talking about Sir Dylan? My mistake was in the 3rd round, not the first.
I picked Raonic and Anderson in the 2nd round and both are still in it.  I could only choose Berdych or Anderson.
I gain no advantage.  In fact, Anderson won his 1st round in 3 sets and Raonic in 4.

I don't see any problem or unfairness to correct the mistake.  Does anyone else, or only you Sir Dylan?

Because if Raonic had lost then maybe you would say that you meant to put Anderson  :)~

But I'll give it to you anyway.

Thanks Sir Dylan.

Probably a real FITD software application wouldn't let me or someone else make that kind of mistake on entry.
But in this free text mode, and with a slam draw, it's pretty easy for someone to make a mistake.

However, luckily I noticed in the bottom line of your spreadsheet that you had flagged it (black section), and as soon as I saw that, I requested the change, without knowing any result...  :)~   Yes, I agree, if only one had lost, I should and would have forfeited that particular part of the draw. :)

Easy to pick winners in this tournament? I've got 31 so far on 48 matches. Not stellar by any means, but usually enough to be above average, yet I'm clean in the middle of the pack.

General Markus, this is a major.  Everyone is raising their level. ;) You're keeping up.  Good job.

Berdych is gone.  Who will be the next top 10 seeded player to be eliminated? Tipsarevic?

Thanks, general  :) Slams are where we try to do our best. And you have impressed mightily so far!

Tipsarevic got his R1 encounter pushed to Wednesday. I don't think he'll lose that match, but I don't see him proceeding very far. Still, I had him losing to Andujar who's already out, so perhaps he'll surprise us?

Yah, tennis is a crazy sport.  Depending on the day, it seems anyone can win.  I got blitzed a bit yesterday, but I've been lucky so far. Let's see if that luck lasts. ;).  I have Verdasco beating Tipsarevic.  :dunno: But Tipsarevic has to get by Mahut first. They've never played on clay, while Mahut has won on hard and grass in their only two matches, so far.  But Mahut has been in never, never land lately (challengers).
