Re: WTA BRACKETS 2015

Remember everyone, this bracket is going to close sooner than normal, since they're in China and way ahead in Time Zones.  So don't put it off.

So how long do I have to make my pics! I live in the USA.

Re: WTA BRACKETS 2015

You have Saturday, but I believe main draw play starts super early Sunday morning/Saturday night.

Re: WTA BRACKETS 2015

ok ty Arvis!

Re: WTA BRACKETS 2015

Picks close tonight, everyone

Re: WTA BRACKETS 2015

ty Arvis!

Re: WTA BRACKETS 2015

Only 7 for Wuhan.  Even Snolly missed it, and he was 3rd place in Mara Jade and Amidala standings.

But at least good 'ol Edinho got his/her picks in.

Wuhan Bracket Breakdown

Adunar - Halep def. Bencic (Kvitova/Wozniacki)
Arvis -    Kvitova def. Bencic (Halep/Muguruza)
BHP -     Halep def. Sharapova (Svitolina/Wozniacki)
Dtrain -  Bencic def. Halep (Kvitova/Wozniacki)
Dwight - Azarenka def. Sharapova (Kvitova/Wozniacki)
Edinho - Keys def. Kvitova (Halep/Sharapova)
Edu -     no bracket
HTS -     Halep def. Bencic (Kvitova/Wozniacki)
Johnny - no bracket
Snolly -   no bracket
Tono -     Kvitova def. Kerber (Halep/Wozniacki)

Dwight made a late bracket, and is currently docked 11 points.  However, the way the handicap works, you can't get any points for any player who played a match before you made your bracket.  For Dwight, this includes Azarenka, who he picked to win the tournament.  This seems like it would be "too harsh" of a handicap for Dwight.  Any suggestions from the rest of the field?

Looks like Snolly won't even take that much of a hit for missing this one....

Re: WTA BRACKETS 2015

wth!

Re: WTA BRACKETS 2015

The bracket-killers came out in full force in this one! Vinci continuing her fine form on hard courts, Schmiedlova still producing big wins on her breakout year, and Konta's been flying since that ITF win a month ago. It's also nice seeing Coco stringing a few wins for the first time since Wimbledon.

It'll be interesting to see who gets those last few spots for the Finals in Singapore.

Re: WTA BRACKETS 2015

Wuhan Leaderboard

1. Tono - 47
2. BHP - 45
3. Arvis - 38
4. Dwight - 34
5. Adunar, Dtrain - 32
7. Edinho - 29
8. HTS - 28

- Dwight has a final total of 15 points for his handicap.
- Tono's Kerber pick could see him LEAP up the rankings in Mara Jade is she keeps winning.

EDIT: @Edinho
Yeah, I was really surprised to see Mladenovic take out Keys but then get easily handled by Schmiedlova.  Schmee may be a sneaky Top 15 or even Top 10 next year without anyone even noticing.

Nice job, Tono!

I won't post total Mara Jade standings until after Beijing, but it should be noted that, after Snolly's 0 for Wuhan, Dwight moves into 3rd place in Mara Jade and Adunar ties Snolly for 4th place.

Dwight also takes over the 3rd place spot from Snolly in the Overall Amidala race.

Re: WTA BRACKETS 2015

The FINAL Mara Jade Saber bracket for 2015 is up and ready for selection!

Bring on Beijing!  The Queen Amidala and Mara Jade titles are still up for grabs here, so get your brackets in!

Re: WTA BRACKETS 2015

Don't forget, the time zones mean this bracket will close sooner than normal.
