3/3 today then :yahoo: great overnight position, must admit I've never wanted to see Venus, then Nestor and Zimonjic and then the Williams Sisters win matches as badly before  :)) looking at all the picks in then its now a 2 person race for this title with 2 matches to go(somebody else might just want to double check the maths on that one) between Somil and myself. I'll have 145 and Somil has 144. We have 2 different picks for the 2 remaining matches as well meaning that Somil needs to get both right whereas I just need Rafa OR Bryan and Srebotnik to win and I've got the title I most want :shakey:

Slip and turn the ankle over and it would give me the title  :)~
Nah I'm slightly favoured by leading by 1 point so just needing one win but since I have a 100% record at 7 tournaments this year for finishing 2nd/3rd or 4th then you'll probably pull off the win!

Thought I'd quickly update the leaderboard with 2 remaining matches in order to make it easier for whoever does the final one tomorrow evening  :) and so everybody knows how they can go up or down in the last matches.

Maybe I'm never meant to win one of these games as I was twice 1 Rafa point away from winning this game and the bracket challenge  :(

Well done Chris :)

Thanks so much Somil, and i so needed that as you're going to get the Mixed Doubles Final right so it comes down to 1 point! So very well done to you Somil- great effort  :)

But thank you so much Rafa- a much deserved title for you and you've given me the Wimbledon double of Pick em and Bracket Champion :yahoo: :grind dance: At least out of all tournaments I could win I won the one I'd pick 1000 times out of 1000!!!
