Since the idiotic Tennis Channel site doesn't have links to the pools, it'll be good to have these links on hand here in the forum.

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

Day 1

Wookie: 15 points
Leia: 12 or 10 points

I guess I should delete one of my two Leia entries.
Is everyone ok with me deleting all of their OLDER dupe entires in Leia?  I just deleted mine, with leaves me with 10 points instead of 12.

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

What is this Tono? You get to make 2 women's brackets? Oooooo, someone is special ;-)

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

I'm afraid to look at mine.  Was hoping some of that US Open magic would transfer to AO but I took some big hits day one.

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

Ok just looked and my men's side score is horrible. I thought it would have been my women's. But they haven't updated their brackets either.

Also - crazy seeing our real names.

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

Yep, didn't think that through when I was signing up. Now my cover is blown ;-)

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

Another huge oversight on Tennis Channel's part.  Really, I couldn't be less happy with them right now.  Probably their fault that Kvitova lost.

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

Day 2 -

Wookie: 47, Ranked 332/7799 (top 4%)
Leia: 43, Ranked 1788/5411 (top 33%)

If nobody says anything by tomorrow, I am going to delete all duplicate entries with older dates from Leia.

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

Day 4-

Wookie: 88, Ranked 2485 (top 32%) -- I can only assume this precipitous drop is due to Janowicz and Robredo.
Leia: 83, Ranked 1307 (top 24%) -- Alison Riske in the 2nd round looks to be the only pick that could have gotten me this rankings boost.

Also, I have changed it to where we can't see everyone's full names in the Standings.  Everyone, please feel free to post your results here in this thread.

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

Middle of the road in both brackets for me so far....I see you have changed mine and Arnaud's name's to include a sauce eh Arvis...LOL!

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

Tono, I had to input a First and Last name for you guys, so I just typed in what came off the top of my head. big_smile

Day 5-

Wookie: 100, Ranked 3647, barely inside the Top 50%.  I am assuming it's my Vaseline and Chardy picks that are responsible for my drop.

Leia: 95, Ranked 1489, Top 30%.  Didn't really have any good or bad picks yesterday.  Got red from Robson, Errani, Lisicki, and Kvitova, all of whom are in spots in the draw that most people got wrong.

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

Well, I'm not sure I will play these Brackets all year long. Didn't have much time to do it and I don't even check it every day.

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

Yeah I agree with you Arnaud, I will probably always quickly make a bracket still but Yoda, FTT and R2D2 take priority, but I will try and remember to make picks for Wookie, Leia and the Nabbo Cup too.

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

A lack of Adunar Awesomesauce or Tono Terrificsauce will make these competitions sad.

I know the tennis channel site sucks, but it's still fun to do a 128-players Bracket.  You don't ever really get those, and even though they get overshadowed by Yoda, I do wish that there was more participation.  Brackets are SO different from Fantasy Teams.  Those of us who are struggling in one can still hang on to hope in another.

-Arvis

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

Well you know I am with you Arvis.  I had trouble and had to create the brackets over and over because I had created the Main League draws first and I could not get them to transfer over.  And I like all of my brackets to be the same so that is driving me a little nuts.

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

It's ok Arvis....Tono the TerrificSauce will try and keep things spicy in the TCB mate. wink

Here was me celebrating Grigor's victory over Milos in Yoda, and then I checked my Wookie bracket only to remember I forgot to edit my Raonic pick, bugger!! hmm

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

Day 8

Wookie: 143
Leia: 123

I'm out of the Top 50% in both.  But if some things go my way, I could jump back up in Wookie.  My Leia bracket is almost done, though.

-Arvis

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

I am going to wait until they update today then I'll finally look at mine and update here. Ain't gonna be pretty I'm sure.

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

Wookie:158 pts, 944 out of 7799 - top 12%

Leia: 151 pts, 166 of 5411 - top 3%

Not as bad as I thought but I'm only going to drop from here.

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

I'm going to punch you, Mike.  "Well, this is going to be ugly.  Oh, Top 3%?  Eh, that's fine I guess. *punched in the face a million times*"

In other words: congrats, you're doing amazing! big_smile

-Arvis

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

LOL Arvis!! I know - I might have been a bit extreme in how I thought I was doing. I only have Vika moving forward in Leia so in my head I was finished. But thanks.

I believe BHP is doing even better.

Re: Tennis Channel Brackets

Congrats to Eduardo on winning the Wookie bracket, nice work Ed. smile

And congrats also to BHP on winning the bracket in Leia, wear that Tiara well Milo. wink
