Kontaveit out.  I can't remember the last time the most popular winner pick lost in the first round.

All opening round Federer losses, most recent Miami. Memory issues?

Silly tenedab, Federer has never lost

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Yep. He had a chance today and blew it

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

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

OMG, how did I miss that??  I must have thought I was looking at another Mertens pick.  My bad, Dwight.  Nice pick, I like it.

Made my picks in TDC. I don't get the team concept, though.

Hi Wimbo

The team concept is actually my favourite.
The basic idea is that you can pick each player no more than 8 times over the course of the season. You score points based on the real ATP/WTA points they accrue. So the skill is deciding when to pick the top players.
Of course, having started in June, you have all your picks left, so you might as well pick the big guns every time!

Thanks for the explanation, Jamie. It makes more sense now. So, I guess can't pick Kicker anymore.

After you make your picks, can you go back to view them. I can't remember who I picked.

It was Mayer who won today, not Anderson unfortunately. Congrats to six Mayer pickers. Btw, interestingly nobody in this group picked the favorite Djokovic to win London.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

I just watched Edu's youtube video's on TDC. I have to say that I am very impressed. I remember when you all were talking about it in GSFT Yoda Cup site, but I didn't know how big it would grow. I know it's late but congratulations. Very proud to be associated with such great tennis enthusiasts and big dreamers. Wimbo (AKA Russ)

I want to join Wimbo and say that I am also fortunate to have found the TDC site and even more to belong to the Yoda Crew. Although I am the newest member, in this year I have been able to confirm the rigor of the competition and the fun climate that prevails in the group. You have achieved something great, I hope beyond the results, that the group remains something fun to brighten our free time.
