Topic: 2014 R2D2 - Party In The City Where The Heat Is On - Miami

The 2014 Sony Open Miami Masters 1000 Tennis Tournament Extravaganza has now begun.  What prize is up for grabs, you ask?
*opens large jewelry case*

The South Beach Sapphire

Only the person with the best bracket can dare own The Sapphire.  But beware: the drive to own this priceless item has destroyed many.

Points System-
Rd 1: 1 pt
Rd 2: 1
Rd 3: 2
Rd 4: 4
Quarterfinals: 8
Semifinals: 12
Final: 16

CURRENT STANDINGS

Standings After Round 1:
1. Adunar, Betclik, Camdawg, Edu, Mike - 24
2. Arvis, BHP - 23
3. Dwight - 21
4. Tennis Elbow - 20
5. Johnny Inc - 19
6. Tono - 18
---The traffic jam at the top of the leaderboard shows how competitive this group is.
---Current King Droid and Prince Droid are slumming it in 2nd place. Time for BHP and Arvis to step it up in Round 2.
---After a remarkable Day 1, Johnny Inc spontaneously combusts on Day 2 to finish Round 1 just 1 point away from last place. Can he make up some ground tomorrow? Wins by Vesely and Mayer, along with a loss by Stepanek, will be necessary if he hopes to regain some momentum.
---Despite being in last, Tono actually has a huge advantage in Round 2: none of his Round 2 Winners are out of the tournament.  Whereas Johnny has already lost 4 of his, which is a pretty big handicap in a competition this intense.

Re: 2014 R2D2 - Party In The City Where The Heat Is On - Miami

Ok, I have Adunar, Dwight, BHP, Betclik, and TennisElbow's picks.  Still need Tono, Johnny, Edu, Camdawg, and Mike to make brackets.

Remember, because the picks are being made on BracketMaker, there is no need for me to send my picks to a 3rd party, since I have set a deadline and no picks can be made or altered after the deadline.  After the deadline, anyone can click on my name and see my picks.

-Arvis

Re: 2014 R2D2 - Party In The City Where The Heat Is On - Miami

That's right, no need for that.. as long as it is not possible to modify picks after that. I seeyou mentioned it isn't possible so that's fine with me.

Re: 2014 R2D2 - Party In The City Where The Heat Is On - Miami

Miami is one of the slowest hard courts in the season, if I'm not mistaken.

The slowest of the season. No wonder why Rafa was able to beat Roger in 2004 and reached the final in 2005 and giving Roger a hell of a hard time. Miami have the slowest hard courts there has ever been on this earth.

Re: 2014 R2D2 - Party In The City Where The Heat Is On - Miami

Ok, I have Mike's and Edu's brackets.  You'll also notice my dad, Sweeper, in there. lol
He won't be competing in the official R2D2 tournament, he just likes to try and beat me and Johnny whenever possible. wink

EDIT: Ok, looks like I just need Tono's bracket, now.

Re: 2014 R2D2 - Party In The City Where The Heat Is On - Miami

The idiotic "SteveG" bracket is giving me hell on my phone so I'm not doing it. I don't have a computer and every now and then I run into a website that is incompatible with mobile devices.....
