Awesome job Arnie!
and thanks for the assist Tono!

actually, I took screen shots of my teams... always wise to do... so there can be no question that I did pick Nishikori instead of Edmund.  However, I also took Kvitova over Stephens in the final... much as I think Serena might actually be a better pick... honesty compels me to go with what's on the screen shot...

Thanks for keeping track, Milo!!

For WTA 'sHerfluvog I picked Flipkens to win... does that make me more or less unique than Arvis?

Love this thread!

I don't really have regrets about my picks - other than I shoulda picked all the QFists! (duh...) 

Obviously, Ostapenko was a waste of skin, but that was never in doubt - she won last year she could do it again.  My real dilemma came between Muguruza and KaPliskova.  I ended up going for the former champ because of proven track record even though KaP seemed to be in better recent form - sure glad I listened to myself for a change!

I almost always get burned on my unseeded picks going out in minus sixteen, so pretty pumped about Serena and Tsitispas this time around.  I knew Stef was likely going to get thrashed by Thiem in the second, but I was just so happy to see no -16's on my men's team, so I forgave him.

I vaguely contemplated Cuevas instead of The Fly... and Garcia looked like a good pick but with no place to go... really my women's team seemed like an obvious lock... shows how little I know!

So it appears I missed the first 3 tournaments.  I nice handicap for me. Beware of big Tenedab, perhaps he is not as forgiving as I am.

Very cool!

Oh wow, thanks for doing this Tono!

Looks great!
It seems there are a few yoda members missing?  How do we determine who is in or out?
I think Canada is closer to the US than Iceland, so perhaps Arvis and I should be switched?

Dwight's Men's Bracket here is UNBELIEVABLE so far!!  He even got Schwartzman and PCB right.  He's got a massive lead for this point in the comp.

It was nice while it lasted... now that the Dimitrov chicken has come home to roost... smile

Great summaries, Ad and Arvis!

pissed off at myself for swapping out KaPliskova for Venus... I think it was Venus' 4-0 record against Bencic that convinced me...

Awesome Edu!
Thanks for all this work!

I vote to give myself credit for 8 weeks as #1 while the pros were on break - just like the ATP rankings! smile
