Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

It looks like I picked Ka.Pliskova/ Sasnovich in the Prague draw. I picked her initially but later changed to Kr.Pliskova and then realized that the name hasn't changed. Is it possible to double-check my pick? I guess computer did not recognize it as a change because of the name issue.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

I sat bolt upright in bed at 12:30 last night when I remembered the WTA Madrid draw.  Made my picks in the dark, literally and figuratively, with 4 hours left.  Not that I'm challenging for any top spots or anything, but it would have been season-ending for sure had I missed it.

Winner picks are all over the place here, too (because it's WTA):
Halep - TE, Ol' Tenny, Dwight, Adunar
Svitolina - Tono, HTS
Petra - TE, Edu
Mugu - Snolly, BHP
CarGar - spotec
Woz - Drivers
Ostapocalypse - Arvis
Pliskova - Lexus

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Murrys Flurrys has Halep also

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Yeah, according to me, TE has Halep and Petra as Winner.  That's a neat trick.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

I couldn't decide between them so I went for both. That's allowed, right?

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

I suspect you guys realized that the bottom quarter of TDC WTA draw is off between Venus and VAN UYTVANCK. Needs to be redone.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

The middle part is also off from Konta to Svitolina, I guess because Rybarikova is MIA.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

I dont see anything wrong between Venus and van uytvanck. What do you see?
Yes, the rybarikova thing is an issue to be solved. Admin is on it.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

You are right. I was looking at the STATS draw.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

So I'm in Canada until the 29th, no access to a PC to make my Yoda teams. Curious if there are any options for me?
If all else fails I might be able to ask to use someone's laptop for 10 minutes.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

These are all excellent suggestions. I'll think about it.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Aiur won the Men's Bracket here (by quite a bit), being the only player to have Thiem as runner-up.  He's now the front-runner in Grand Slam Total!  Nice job, Aiur!  However, he's still only 13th in Men's Brackets Overall, with Edu continuing in the #1 spot.

On the women's side, Tenedab gets the win by 1 point over TE, and 2 points over Murree and Aiur.  Talk about slim margins!  Just think, TE: if you had believed in Sakkari just a little more, you would have won.
Anyways, Tenedab moves into 5th Overall, and Tono is our #1 in Grand Slam Total, with a 1 point lead over Edu.

Great job everyone!

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Stuttgart
Shockingly, NOBODY took Federer to win this!!
...
Kidding, we all did, of course.  Runner up picks are all divided between Pouille (3), Raonic (7), and Kohlschreiber (6).  That idiot Arvis backed Gojowczyckzykycz to make the semis, so that leaves him with lucky-loser Galovic, whoever that is.


ATP Den Bosch
Most of us took Gasquet, obviously, because Muller hasn't been playing all that well.  However, it's amazing how healthy Muller gets when grass is under his feet.  Other Winner picks:
Mannarino (BHP, Dtrain)
Muller (HTS, Marco)
Tsitsipas (Murree)
Medvedev (TE)

Some pretty clever picks there.  The most unusual pick I could see was Snolly making Seppi his runner-up.



WTA Den Bosch
Less variation in picks here than I would have thought.  Only 4 players make up our Winner picks: Kontaveit (6), Mertens (4), Vandy (4), and Tomljanovic (Spotec).  There's a few other unique picks around but the biggest is probably Arvis picking Flipkens as runner-up.


Nottingham
It's all Barty and Konta here, but a three took Rybarikova to pick up where she left off at Wimby and Lexus backed Osaka.  We've already had some upsets here, with a couple people losing Giorgi.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Kontaveit out.  I can't remember the last time the most popular winner pick lost in the first round.
