The draws for the Wimbledon Ladies Singles competition is out!

Click the link above to make your fantasy brackets.  Predictions close Monday 10am London time.  Remember, these Leia brackets offer the BIGGEST amount of potential points in the overall Queen Amidala standings.

Once play begins, I will do a Bracket Breakdown here so you can see at a glance who picked whom to go deep.  Stay tuned!

Ok, done

Re: Wimbledon 2015 - Princess Leia Tiara competition

Thanks, HTS!

There are still 12 hours left to do a WTA Bracket for Wimbledon!

Re: Wimbledon 2015 - Princess Leia Tiara competition

Bracket Breakdown

Adunar - Serena def. Kerber (Pliskova/Kvitova)
Arvis -    Kvitova def. Serena (Pliskova/Kerber)
BHP -     Serena def. Kvitova (Pliskova/Kerber)
Don -     Serena def. Kvitova (Sharapova/Kerber)
Dtrain -  Serena def. Kvitova (Sharapova/Kerber)
Dwight - Serena def. Kvitova (Sharapova/Kerber)
Edu -     Serena def. Kvitova (Sharapova/Kerber)
HTS -     Serena def. Kvitova (Safarova/Lisicki)
Mike -    Serena def. Kvitova (Sharapova/Kerber)
Snolly -  Serena def. Kvitova (Safarova/Lisicki)

Somebody named "Edinho" also joined us for this. Their prediction:
Serena def. Kerber (Safarova/Kvitova)

So, it's all about Serena and Petra here.
- Arvis is alone in picking Kvitova to win.
- Adunar is alone in picking Kerber to make the finals.
- Everyone picked either Maria, Pliskova, or Safarova to make the semis in the top half.
- Everyone picked either Kerber or Lisicki to make the semis in the bottom half, except Adunar who alone picked Kvitova to lose at that stage.

A surprising lack of variety here. I would have thought more people would take a shot on some upsets.

Why are we in the cellar Arvis?

Re: Wimbledon 2015 - Princess Leia Tiara competition

Congrats Don!

Re: Wimbledon 2015 - Princess Leia Tiara competition

Who knows, HTS?  I know why I am: I didn't try very hard with my bracket.  I made a lot of impulsive decisions because I knew that everyone would take Serena.  However, I also knew that Kvitova was 100% guaranteed to win the tournament, so I figured I could just pick whatever and then choose Kvitova as winner to get the bracket win.
