Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Definitely starting out that way - Can't figure out the WTA brackets no matter how hard i try..!!!

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Serena the first big Padme casualty.  Dtrain, Tenny, Dwight, HTS, and TE all had her.

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Goerges flopped again for me, not sure why I keep picking her, should have gone Vika instead I think.

Or Aga Radwanska!!! You've been so loyal to her in past picks Tony!

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Didn't have her but glad to see Aga win - She is a tuff competetor..!!!

Of course I didn't have Halep so it didn't hurt either...

Yeah true Jenny, I must admit I have recently classed Aga as a 280/470 pick at best now, she is going to win Miami now to prove me wrong. lol

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Unbelievable picking from Drivers, Tenny, and HTS.  No matter what happens in the final, Padme is going to be shook up.

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Congrats to "Frickin'" Tenedab, who has well and truly cemented his Padme lead with a BIG win in Miami!  With a grand total of 1775 points, he has put a LOT of space between him and the competition.

To put that score in perspective, he beat 4th place Adunar (who almost broke 1000 with a nice Azarenka pick) by 815.  Adunar beat last place Dtrain by only 530 points.  This could almost be considered a year-making win for Tenedab.  Still, we have 3 more Slams to play, and there is always a chance of a shake-up at one of them!

Credit to Drivers and TE, too, for breaking the 1500 point mark and giving Tenny some competition!

Tenedab is now just over 1000 points in the lead in Padme, ahead of our new #2 TE.  HTS drops from #2 to #3, BHP drops from #3 to #6.  Adunar and Drivers round out our new Padme Top 5!

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Snolly clips Arvis by 10 points for the win in Charleston!  Both had Bertens and only Arvis had Goerges but Snolly had 3 SFists on his team, which was enough to get it done.  Snolly was a painful 5 points away from breaking 1000, but I'm sure he's not too disappointed with that result.  He beat last place Murree and HTS by 793.  These 480's can have sneakily huge margins.

In Monterrey, 5 of us deemed it worthwhile to use a Mugu pick and she came good, winning it all.  Of those 5, HTS faired the best with a top score of 550, a margin of 340 over last place Spotec.

These results leave us with Tenedab still way in the lead and TE in the 2nd place position.  Adunar bumps HTS down to #4 and BHP and Drivers continue jostling each other, trading places yet another week, this time with BHP coming out on top and taking the 5th place spot.  Aiur continues to struggle and is pretty far down the basement.  Like, impressively far into last place.

My picks have been a dogs breakfast this year, especially the men, I will take anything at the moment smile

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

How quickly the French/Wimby swing can change things in Vader/Padme, though, eh?

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Schmiedlova wins a whole dang tournament out of nowhere.  Who magically picked her?  Frickin' Tenedab.  This is getting silly.
