Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Well I had Edmund losing immediately to Lajovic anyway, but now I'm really glad about that.  I kinda thought someone else might eye Lajovic in Umag Bro, but I guess not? 

I also have Ebden winning Newport and only Tono is with me on that.  But at least there almost everyone has in the semis at least.

In Bastad Sword, Ad has PBC and Ol' Tenny has Gasquet, but other than that it's all Diego and Fabio.

On the WTA side we've *already* lost some Gstaad SFists in Arruabarrena and Vikhly, but everyone's Winners are intact, with Stosur being the most popular.  A couple have gone for Larsson, which could be a nice sneaky pick to gain some points.
In Bucharest it's all Buzu and Sevastova.  Not a single other player was picked to win.  One of the only real standout picks was HTS taking Peterson to make the final, and... well, look how well that worked for him.  So there probably won't be much ranking shifting from this one.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

I don't know how much it matters but in Nanchang the name of the qualifier who played yesterday is incorrect. It should be LIANG, En-Shuo and not JIANG, Xinyu.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Yeah, not sure how the wrong player got put in, especially after she won her match.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

I think Tom has to add her to the database so a player was just inserted until that happens and that's the reason the match isn't updated.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Is there a problem with TDC site? Waiting for Tom?

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Yep. Warned him this morning about the layout issue. It has happened once before and was easily fixed. Hopefully Tom acts as quickly as possible.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Does anybody know how to finalize the picks in this format?

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Yes edu posted a work around on facebook.
Basically the tab key is needed and you need a PC. Cant do it on your phone.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Thanks, Arnie!

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

how can I finalized my draws there is nothing at the bottom of the draw to put how many aces or the time of the match to complete my draws!

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Answering TB questions is not essential to finalize your draw picks.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

How do you complete your picks then Tenedab!  For Example I pick Chung but Kyrios is in his spot!

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Fill in your picks then hit the tab key once and type number of aces - hit the tab key again and type in the match time in minutes - Then hit enter (Do Not hit tab key again) Once you hit enter it will record your picks...

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

We didn't exactly blow up the numbers in our ATP brackets last week, but in Washington at least a few of us got the Winner, Zverev, correct.  But high scores in the 250s weren't great.  Drivers did well to score 34 in Los Cabos for the win (how could anyone have known Fognini would do so well??), but Aiur won Kitzbuhel with only 19.  Makes sense because two Qualifiers were in the finals there.  This leaves our standings like this:

250
1. Tenedab: 775
2. Lexus: -73
3. BHP: -76
4. Spotec: -80
5. Drivers: -90

So we kind of have a traffic jam in the Top 5 here, but with Frickin' Tenedab WAAAAAAAAAAAAY out in front.  He could take a couple 250s off and not lose the lead.


500s
1. Edu: 345
2. HTS: -5
3T. Tenny: -8
3T. Tono: -8
5. Lexus: -20

This one is still totally up for grabs.  Props to Lexus, though, for quietly contending for the top spot for both 250s and 500s.  Nice job for our newcomer.


ATP Overall
1. Tenny: 2133
2. Edu: -18
3. HTS: -53
4T. Adunar: -95
4T. Tono: -95

Unbelievably tight margins here!  Wow!


---


The WTA continues to be confounding and point totals were complete garbage last week.  Snolly and Dtrain won Washington with a mere 22 points, while Frickin' Tenedab won San Jose, which was a 470, with only 24 points.  Awful.  Poor Dtrain finished San Jose with 8.  EIGHT!  This leaves our standings like this:

280
1. BHP: 551
2. Tono: -3
3. Drivers: -4
4. TE: -14
5. Edu: -27

One bad tournament and this whole Top 5 could shift around.  o__o


470
1. Tendab & Tono: 265
3. Adunar: -3
4. HTS: -10
5. Edu: -13

Same here.


WTA Overall
1. Tono: 1714
2. Edu: -1
3. TE: -10
4. Adunar: -15
5. Tenny: -82

Man, if this keeps up, these Top 4 will be jostling each other all the way down to Moscow and Luxembourg!  But don't count Tenedab out, if you're smart.
