Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

I think Ol' Tenny was saying that Novak was the favorite pick on TDC as a whole, not that he personally believed that Novak was the favorite.

But who knows?  He certainly is playing like the best player in the draw through his first two matches.

I meant the betting favorite. Djokovic is just the third favorite on TDC.

There are tips for brackets and teams. smile

I didn't think it was you in that video, because I knew you were Brazilian. Thanks for the link, but I did find them later on my own. It's funny because on one of your video's, you pull up the Yoda page on GSFT and I was the Guru that year. How times have changed.

You also went to great lengths to appropriately credit all of the site administrators and founders of TDC. Very classy. When you started naming names, I was like "I KNOW those people!"

Wimbledonut's Eastbourne ATP bracket looks like he just clicked things randomly.

EDIT: Actually, his Antalya bracket has the same feel.  He has Dzumhur winning, whose career grass record is 4-8, with Lorenzi as runner-up, whose career grass record is 6-25.  He's never won more than 1 grass court match in a year.

Coric just won Halle with even worse grass court record.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

LOL, ya got me there, Tenny!  But he's 22 and still learning, so there's always a chance that a player like him will turn things around (like Thiem did on grass).  Not only that, but Coric was so bad in '17 and '16 he had a sub-.500 winning record total for those years, so it's hard to blame his grass losses then on his grass acumen.

But maybe I'm being too dismissive.  Dzumhur can do it!

Ouch! Thanks for the vote of confidence Arvis. ;-) I am new to TDC, and I am still trying out methods of selecting players. Yes, my picks are a bit unorthodox, but they are working at Eastbourne. Don't hate, congratulate!

You are doing great, Wimbo! Keep going. What about WTA?

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge 2018 - Results & Discussion

Yeah, the WTA is another story. I can't seem to keep up the tournaments on TDC, and I miss the deadlines. I also don't have a good handle on who going to play well from tournament to tournament. I used to be #1 in YC for the women's tournaments. Not so much anymore.

Very true, your Eastbourne score is actually comically ahead of the field. lol
