Topic: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

Hey guys, I thought I'd make a thread where we could keep each other updated (read: brag) about our scores in the various other competitions we're in at this year's US Open.

I'll start with Day 1:

Official US Open Brackets (Obi Wan Cannoli)
Men - 19 (rank 545)
Women - 22 (rank 438)

Tennis Channel Racket Bracket (C3P0 Cheerio)
Men - 19 (rank 264)
Women - 24 (rank 189)

Tennis Draw Challenge (Chivalrous Wookiee Medal)
36 points (rank 76) which gets me mid-table in the group, tied with Adunar and Don, two points behind Dragan and Tono, and a whopping SIX behind the Golden Boy, BackhandPass.

Are any of you playing the US Open Bracket Challenge on www.usopen.org?

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

Yes, that is the one I lovingly referred to as "Obi Wan Cannoli" in my first post.  Please keep us updated on your brackets here, Camdawg!

Day 2!

US Open Bracket Challenge
Men - 34 (Rank 734)
Women - 41 (Rank 162) <-- this will drop soon due to picks like Serena losing to Kirilenko and Radwanska losing to Suarez-Navarro.

US Open DAILY Challenge
4 points - Rank 299

Tennis Channel Bracket
Men - 32 (Rank 173)
Women - 42 (Rank 69)

Tennis Draw Challenge (Chewie Medal)
66 points - Rank 62
So I'm temporarily tied with Dragan for 2nd place in the group, still 6 points behind BHP.

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

As of now:

US Open Bracket Challenge: Men - 35 points (Rank 298th of 7225)

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

Day 3

US Open Bracket Challenge
Men - 48 (Rank 933)
Women - 61 (Rank 318) <-- already dropping

US Open DAILY Challenge
HASN'T POSTED YET

Tennis Channel Bracket
Men - 49 (Rank 607)
Women - 64 (Rank 102) <-- would be nice to hold on to this one, but I have Sloane Stephens in the QFs, Serena losing to Kerber in the semis, and Li Na defeating Azarenka in the QFs. A lot needs to go right for me.

Tennis Draw Challenge (Chewie Medal)
92 points - Rank 28th
I am now 2nd outright, but only 4 points ahead of Don and 4 points behind BHP.  Tono and Adunar are tied for last, but THEY are only 4 points behind Don in 3rd!  My name looks pretty up there in 2nd, but it means nothing at all.  Everyone (except Wolmas, whose bracket glitched because he waited til the last second as usual) is just as likely to win this as everyone else.

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

I'm doing really badly right now.

US Open Bracket Challange
Men - 4,570 with 44 pts
Women - 186 with 62 pts

Tennis Channel Bracket Challange
Men - 5631 with 38 pts
Women - 116 with 58 pts

Ouch!! My men's picks are killing me. The women are going to drop very shortly as well. When's AO?

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

LOL, Mike, your women's teams are doing great, they might hold on.  I am 1 point behind you in US Open BC and 2 points ahead of you in the Tennis Channel BC.  The Tennis Channel one is my "official" one, I kinda just screwed around with the USO one, but that doesn't always seem to matter.

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

I just rechecked and it looks like they just updated the totals 9or I didn't refresh something).

So now it's:

Tennis Channel Bracket
Mens - 6,135 with 44 pts
Womens - 102 with 64 pts

Arvis - Thanks. I did the same draw for both so it'll be fun to see the difference in placement at the end. My wome's draw looks like its bleeding and my men's don't so I'm a bit confused but it's early. Can't wait to see if we stay so close. Woz was my big let down draw-wise. I was hoping she wasn't that injured and would use some of that spark she usually has at the Open if if she's not playing that well.

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

Oh, they DID just update.  Now I have to edit my Tennis Channel stats...

Looks like you and I are tied on the women's side, Mike. wink

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

These sites pick the strangest times to update their stats. Play only ended almost 12 hours ago.

Let's hear it for the women!!

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

Well, the official US Open site has yet to update the scores on their Daily Challenge for Day 3.  NONE of the scores are posted.  And it's the official site.  So I guess 12 hours is a pretty decent turnaround for tennis channel!

-Arvis

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

Lol - that is true!! You would think every facet of the Open's website would be contstantly monitored. Today was the first day I played the Daily Challange. I have to remember to check in every morning now. Love that they chose some difficult questions.

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

Those tiebreaker questions are seriously annoying.  They require math.  Time-consuming math.  Blech.  I didn't even bother, today.  Just threw out a couple random numbers.

-Arvis

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

Well I'm almost ashamed to say that I am currently....

3550th out of 7225 in the Mens US Open Bracket Challenge hmm

But on a brighter note I'm 491st out of 5281 in the Womens Bracket Challenge smile

I almost always do better in the mens draws than the women's so this tournament is most unusual...so far anyway. wink

I didn't do the tennis channel bracket challenge.

2021 AO Yoda Cup, 2020 Supreme Jedi UFTR No.1, Lord Vader 2018 Leia Champ
2017 - Rey Saber Champ, Padme , BIG 5 Career Slam, Yoda Crew Hall Of Fame
2015 - Obi Wan Master, King Droid, Yoda Crew POTY 2014 - Guru Runner-Up
2013 - Guru Winner (2014 Yoda Cup Guru), US Open Yoda Cup, Yoda Crew POTY 2012 - Lord Vader 2011 - Wimbledon Yoda Cup

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

Day 4

US Open Bracket Challenge
Men - 70 (Rank 1659) DOWN
Women - 76 (Rank 1574) DOWN

Tennis Channel Bracket
Men - 73 (Rank 744) DOWN
Women - 80 (Rank 663) DOWN

Tennis Draw Challenge (Chewie Medal)
144 points - (Rank 24th) UP
I have now, somehow, taken the outright lead in Chewie, 4 points ahead of BHP and 4 points off the Site Leaderboard.  However, I am only 16 points ahead of last place, which would easily be erased by just two Rd of 16 matches, and considering I have Querrey over Berdych in the next round, that could happen fast.  Don and BHP are tied for second at 140 points.

Day 4:

US Open Bracket Challenge: Men - 68 (2922nd of 7225)

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

Not sure if everything has been updated but as of this morning:

Tennis Channel Bracket
Mens - 4,105 with 132 pts
Womens - 520 with 129 pts

US Open Bracket
Mens - 2,755 with 134 pts
Womens - 391 with 125 pts

My womens bracket will definitely fall. I never thought the Italians would do so well in the quarter not to mention Bartoli and Stosur banging it out. My men's bracket has been a nightmare this entire tourney. Oh well.

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

I'm basically falling apart in all competitions.  In the tennis channel brackets, I am still clinging to the top half, but I am below that in the US Open brackets.  I'll post my scores when I have more time.

-Arvis

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

Here's todays. Tennis Channel hasn't updated their women's side completey yet btw.

Re: The Great US Open Fantasy Scores Update Thread of '12!

Wow!! We were all really close to each other. Here's my final:

US Open Bracket
Mens - 178 pts (3,183th)
Womens - 197 pts (607th)

Tennis Channel Bracket
Mens - 192 pts (4,667th)
Womens - 209 pts (1,035th)

I had the same exact draws in both but finished drastically difference in placement. Nothing to remember too fondly.
