Litotes wins, Clay Death finishes second, ashwin#1 in third!

Nobody got the bonus questions exactly correct, but several came close to the high amount of breaks, with Litotes and Babblelot close for both players.  Congratulations Litotes (Markus) and well done to everyone!

Murray returned phenomenally well, winning almost 50% of the return points and breaking Djokovic 7 times. Djokovic was forced out of his normal baseline game, coming to the net 52 times, 15 more than Murray, and attempted many more dropshots, in an effort to close out points, probably due to some fatigue left over from the Del Potro match.  Unfortunately for Djokovic, his execution when doing so was not good enough.  Too many drop shots sat up for Murray winners, and not enough net points were converted to make a difference.

Congratulations to Andy Murray and his fans, and condolences to Novak Djokovic and his fans. Well done to both players!



I think many were getting a hang of the game by the end.  Thanks for playing!
Awards and interviews to follow (when I can corner Litotes and Clay Death :)) ).

You're welcome MT.  I didn't see your answers prior to calculating final results.  Go ahead and count what you want...  :)) ..-)

By the way, if you or anyone else has suggestions for improving the game, or getting more contestants to participate, I'll consider all submissions prior to the US Open Oracle Contest.  :))  Feel free to post them in this thread.  I won't close it.

No worries.  My answers were posted after the match just to reflect how I 'might' have fared.

I think it would be fun to have more participants in the Open Oracle Contest.
Beat the drum early.
Beat the drum often.
Repeat.
Hit me up a couple weeks prior and I'll assist in 'beating the drum' if I can.

Scooter can also help out by sending emails to forum members encouraging them to play.

Enjoy the remainder of the 'grass' court season.
Perhaps I'll make the trip to Newport to see and play on some real grass before it's all converted over to the new surface used at Claybledon this year.
