Captain Solo Race Rankings...
1) Tono 2638pts
2) TennisElbow 2540pts
3) Tenedab 2429pts

5) Backhandpass 1405pts
6) Drivers 1151pts
7) Snollygoster 1078pts
8) Adunar 1005pts
9) HTS 520pts

The top three are very close in this inaugural competition, but it only takes one really good Masters or GS result and things can change pretty quickly, plenty of tennis left in this comp yet.

Congratulations to Tono and Edu_Anackin on jointly winning the Wimbledon Obi Wan bracket for 2019, Tono and Edu finished equal on 244pts to claim the victory, it was Tono's third Obi Wan tourney win of the year, while for Edu it was surprisingly his first win of the season, but a very nice one to win though nonetheless.

Tono and Edu finished up 10pts clear of dwightcharles who finished up in third spot overall.

Congratulations to Aiur on winning the Wimbledon Rey Saber bracket for 2019, it was the second Rey tourney win of the season for Aiur, looks like he is warming up nicely for the US Open.

Aiur finished 14pts clear of Dtrain in second place and 27pts clear of the third placegetter HundredTennisStats, Aiur picked the actual final between Simona and Serena but had Williams beating Halep in the final, great victory Aiur, well done.

Congrats to Gestalt222 on winning the ATP Wimbledon bracket last week on TDC, it was a first up win for them this season but what a great bracket win to secure.

Congratulations to pamplemoussey on winning the Wimbledon WTA bracket last week on TDC, it was their first win of the season but it's always nice to win a Grand Slam bracket.

Might be a good idea. smile

Looks like team ROW might have pulled a hamstring or two at Wimbledon hmm...USA currently lead by 360pts heading into the men's QF matches at SW19, that 528pts lead Team World had after RG has been whittled down to just 168pts!

I think this thread will need updating Milo, there has been some good percentages of late. ;-)

Hiya Arnie, do you have time to update this or are you going to wait until Wimbledon is over?

Congratulations to Drivers on winning the Rey Saber Eastbourne bracket last week, this victory saw Jenny join tenedab and Adunar for most Rey Saber tourneys won in season 2019, all three have notched up five wins this year.

The key picks for Drivers was predicting that Angie Kerber and Karolina Pliskova would face off for the title in Eastbourne, with Pliskova winning it all, nice work Jenny!
Adunar and HundredTennisStats shared second place some 11pts further back behind Drivers.

Congratulations to last weeks Obi Wan bracket winners, Dtrain took out the tournament in Halle and dwightcharles was victorious in the Queens tourney in London.

Dennis a.k.a Dtrain notched up win number six for the season in Obi Wan after cleverly predicting David Goffin would make the final on the grass in Halle, Murrys Flurrys and tenedab both made one more correct prediction than Dtrain but the Goffin pick got him home in the end, Dtrain, Murrys Flurrys, tenedab, Drivers and dwightcharles all broke the 70% pick barrier in Halle.

Charles snuck home in London on the back of predicting more first round winners than than his closest rivals TennisElbow, Aiur, spotec and tenedab, that tournament was a tough one to predict.

Dtrain leads the pack in Obi Wan tournaments won overall with six tourney wins in 2019, tenedab and johnny_incognito lead the chasing pack on four.

Congratulations to last weeks Rey Saber bracket winners, Edu_Anackin & tenedab shared the spoils in Mallorca while johnny_incognito ended up the sole victor at the Birmingham tournament.

Great performance last week by Edu and Edgar, Edu notched up 25 out of 31 picks correct for a pick percentage of 80.6% in Mallorca and Edgar ended up with 24 out of 31 correct for 77.4% correct, nice work gentlemen.

Congrats to last weeks two ATP bracket winners on TDC, escthom was the sole winner in the Halle bracket while Game, Set, Match Froud was victorious in the tournament in London.

Congrats to last weeks WTA bracket winners on TDC, Tjelay won the tournament in Mallorca and Dr. Manhattan was victorious in the Birmingham event, first up bracket wins this season for both of them.

Tjelay produced an amazing bracket in Mallorca with an incredible 28 correct picks out of a possible 31 for an astonishing pick percentage of 90.3%, that is the second best pick percentage of the season overall in the WTA brackets, Gian got close to a perfect bracket back in the Budapest tournament with 29 out of 31 correct for a percentage of 93.5%.

Nicely done Charles! smile

Good bit of banter thrown around in this thread, good to see ROW are still out in front in 2019, we need a solid result at SW19 though.

Thanks for compiling the spreadsheet Jamie. smile

Congratulations to our two Obi Wan bracket winners last week, johnny_incognito was victorious in Stuttgart while spotec claimed the win in 's-Hertogenbosch.

Johnny edged out the second placed trio of Drivers, dwightcharles and spotec who all ended up tied 2pts behind him, spotec enjoyed a good win in 's-Hertogenbosch with his Adrian Mannarino pick paying dividends for him, he predicted that Mannarino would make the final and not only did the Frenchman do that, he actually won his first ATP title against Jordan Thompson.

Johnny claimed his fourth Obi Wan win of the year while spotec notched up win number three, well done guys!

Congratulations to our two respective Rey Saber bracket winners last week, Drivers and Adunar!

Drivers won the Nottingham tournament with a fantastic bracket, Jenny picked 25 out of a possible 31 predictions correct for an overall pick percentage of 80.6%, she ended up winning by 6pts overall from Snollygoster and Edu_Anackin who finished tied in second spot.

Adunar won the 's-Hertogenbosch tourney by a solitary point from TennisElbow and tenedab who shared second place, Arnie had an overall lower pick percentage than Jamie and Edgar but he managed to have Kiki Bertens and Alison Riske in the final whereas TE and tene didn't.

Adunar has now moved to the top of the overall Rey tourney's won for season 2019 with five, Drivers claimed her fourth Rey tourney overall this season, nice work Arnie and Jenny.
