If it's ok I'll give a go at doing these next picks.

Gasquet - Murray
Tipsarevic - Schuettler
Wawrinka - Safin
Verdasco - Ancic

Vaidisova - Chakvetadze
Kuznetsova - Radwanska
Dementieva - Peer

Nestor/Zimonjic - Murray/Mirnyi
Verdasco/Lopez - Bjorkman/Ullyett

Medina Garrigues/Ruano Pascual - Williams/Williams

What about mixed?

They're kind of in the middle of a round and not as many people follow it.

But that's clearly leaving me at a disadvantage - being a WTA follower and most of the games being ATP heavy. Mixed doubles would be great.

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

Thanks very much for keeping that score Borovnia as I was going to ask who an earth is keeping score in this  :)) I'm in a decent position going into the 2nd week, and would so love to win this tournament, however well or bad I do for the rest of the year  :)

Thing is: no ONE person is in charge. kickserve used to run the game exclusively but I guess he has relinquished power to the board. :confused1:

I was away at the start of the week and on antibiotics now, so this tournament is a bit of a free-for-all. I'll be back on my game for the Masters Series and Olympics.

Do we have quarterfinal picks? seeing how quarters start tommorrow?

I picked a few, I don't know how this works. Do you guys approve or you want to choose your own?

Safin vs. Lopez
Nadal vs. Murray
Schuettler vs. Clement

Zheng vs. Vaidisova
Radwanska vs. S.Williams
Dementieva vs. Petrova

Elrich/Ram vs. Dlouhy/Paes
Black/Huber vs. Azarenka/Peer

I think I have also picked the "upset" in every round and could very well go 0-8 this time! but Iam taking my risks.
