That's fantastic thanks Borovnia  :) I'd done a brief count of a few leaders to see how I matched upto them and now I really need Scheuttler to win to close the gap on Conchita. What a close competition this is right now  :)

Federer - Safin
Dementieva - V Williams
S Williams - Zheng
Dlouhy/Paes
- Nestor/Zimonjic
Bryan/Bryan - Bjorkman/Ullyett
Williams/Williams - Dechy/Dellacqua OR Lagostera Vives/Martinez Sanchez

Don't know if I can still do it with the Dementiava match. Actual in the Dementiava match its still going pretty equally in the second. So will make the pic anyway.

I think If you had picked Nadal instead of Murray, you still would be leading there... ..-)

:cursing:

at least I am only second place and down only 1 point. I saw somewhere I was like 4th and was 4 points down to the leader!

Oh well.. at least now I know you were cheating because I picked Murray and not Nadal  :lol-cry:

I know Borovnia I am missing our close battles we've had  :) I don't think I've ever been as desperate for Scheuttler to win a match today- I was absolutely cursing him at times as that match meant being level with Conchita or 10 off her. He won and I'm right in here now, and need 3 more wins tomorrow and then a great weekend.
With the amount of times I've finished 2nd, 3rd or 4th, which has been almost every Grand Slam and Masters event this year I should be the 'People's choice' for this title  :))

I can't remember seeing the final matches listed?  Or did I miss something?

I'm going with:

Federer, of course
Williams/Williams in the doubles
Bryan/Samantha in the mixed...

Don't know what else might be picked, but I'm going to be out-of-pocket for most of the day tomorrow and wanted to get my picks in.

None of them have yet reached the Finals Dallas so maybe you'll have 0/3 of those in the Final come this evening  :innocent:

Chris: As I'll be down south at Wimbledon all weekend and probably won't have access to a computer, would you mind texting me the picks so I know? Thanks.

5 from 6 for me in that round, but from what I've worked out in my head Conchita will be 6 clear of me now(but thats just 1 win difference in this final round) and Somil will be right behind me with Retro and Pawan still in with a chance. I only worked out the top 5 going into this round so others may be up there too, but think Conchita leads from me, then Somil. Looking forward to see the leaderboard going into the deciding round.

I'm gonna be off town, and no internet connection, until monday. Probably top 4 should PM someone last round picks. If you don't mind waiting until monday for final leaderboard then is fine PM me, but I think better someone else to have a final leaderboard on sunday evening. Also, someone should feature last picks, all finals? mens womens and one doubles? anything but soon, we have play starting in 15 hours, and many people is missing making their picks due to short announcement.
