Re: Yoda Cup - 2016 Wimbledon

So, is it safe to post here?

Also, is Adunar ok?

Re: Yoda Cup - 2016 Wimbledon

Adunar is on vacation.  This is the thread to post on.  I'll be deleting my thread momentarily.

Re: Yoda Cup - 2016 Wimbledon

It is Arvis. I just forgot to delete that part of the text. Arnie is right now in the graces of Dimitrov. No, wait!

Re: Yoda Cup - 2016 Wimbledon

Awesome guys, splendid work. Glad you could so this while I was away.

I am really surprised so many of us picked Keys in the finals.. I Almost picked Kerber...

Surprised there were so many kohli backers. He withdrew 10 days ago because of a hip injury..

Muller/Mahut was a tough choice too.. figuref Mahut had been playing slightly better lately.

Re: Yoda Cup - 2016 Wimbledon

Great summary, Edu!
Yes, I'm also surprised at the number of people picking Keys for the final... I figured it was an 'out there' pick, but apparently I'm not alone!

I ditched Wawrinka and Cibulkova at the last minute for Federer and Garcia... hope I don't regret that...

Re: Yoda Cup - 2016 Wimbledon

You are doing this just right Edu!

You can already add the "BONUS POINTS" section (in green) with a "coming later..." right below it.

Otherwise, it is perfect!

Re: Yoda Cup - 2016 Wimbledon

Where is my pick Petkovic?....only 7 for me????...what happened?

2017 King Droid & R2D2 Crown Champion, Yoda Crew Trophy Case Award

Re: Yoda Cup - 2016 Wimbledon

Tono is 5-1-2 (and not 5-2-1, the standard) with his women's team.

And Ivanovic should be in red, in bold as she is out. You don't need to put people in blue in bold all the time, color is enough I think.  And it is a lot of work to put the bold and then remove it all the time lol.

EDIT: and you have some "(" instead of "[" when you put our names. Only a couple of them remain.

Otherwise all good!


SPOTEC: weird.. because all the total number of picks are correct... I don't now where is the problem. Edu can find it perhaps

You might be able to get that resolved if you mention it to Charles. Did you edit your team?  That has happened to me in the past, which is why I only submit my teams when I'm ready to fill them out completely.

Yeah I woke up on about 2-3 hours sleep, no surprise I made some errors lol. Minor stuff, parenthesis and put the wrong formation for Tono I guess.

Re: Yoda Cup - 2016 Wimbledon

actually Jenny, Arnie does this post every single slam by himself. I could only imagine the work it was but now that I'm doing it (even partially) I can see it is way more than I've imagined. That's why we call it THE GREAT POST OF AWESOMENESS!!!

PS: Arnie, I can't let you do this all by yourself anymore. Let's work something out, you could count the picks and let me update it, like Tommy and I did it wink

I shouldn't speak for Arnaud, but I think he genuinely enjoys this stuff.  He's a deranged fook.  I will not be backing up your offer, Edu, I had to  drink 3 pints at 6:00am just to get through this.
