You can modify your draw on the bracketmaker. I did it this morning. The only problem is that you have to do it all over again.. but I'm sure you remember your picks wink

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

As it turns out, I am not going to change any of my QF picks.  Probably means disaster.

I've modified my draw, I hope I'm still on time

The first matches start in about 2 hours so you are fine Betclik.

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

If anyone doesn't want to re-do their entire bracket, you can post adjustments and Qualifier changes here in the forum and they will be reflected in the spreadsheet.

Arvis' changes:
-Thiem def. Rosol
-Hanescu def. de Bakker

That's it.  I considered some other changes, but those are the only two that will differ from my BracketMaker draw.  If there are 2 points or less between me and the guy below me, it will all be worth it (if I get the changes right, that is).

Also, everyone please post your tiebreakers in this thread.
TIEBREAKER 1: # of aces by winner in final
TIEBREAKER 2: length of final in minutes

Arvis' tiebreakers:
#1 - 14 aces
#2 - 135 minutes

Well, I am not sure everyone wants to make these picks public, as it could sway how we answer, no?

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

You can still do it after the brackets close, as long as none of the changes affect any current or finished matches.

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

Yeah, when deadline is passed we should all post our tie-breakers in the next 24 hours or before the end of the day.

Wouldn't be easier just email him the qualifiers and tie breakers?

2. 119 mins

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

Ok, we've hit the deadline and I'll start putting everyone's spreadsheets together.

Dang... a lot of you really went out on a limb in this tournament.  Nadal, Djokovic, Nadal, Djokovic, Nadal, Djokovic....
And then, me and Johnny with our stupid predictions.  Awesome.

Nadal: never won Miami ever, yet 4 of you guys picked him to get it here.  History tells us he will have won every tournament ever by the time he retires, so this isn't really a bad pick.
Djokovic: because it's the easiest thing in the world to do the Indian Wells/Miami double, 6 of you picked him to accomplish the feat.
Arvis picked Berdych to win Miami.  What an idiot.
Johnny picked Wawrinka to win Miami.  He said he was going to pick him in every tournament, so I guess he is staying true to his word.

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

if Miami didn't have such slow courts I would have picked Roger to win it, I mean it

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

I went with the Djoker. I think he really needed that IW win to get him on track. He's been my pick for the clay season since the end of last year.

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

I think Nadal has a better chance here than Novak, to be honest.  It just depends on whether Nadal can serve or not.  I actually am surprised nobody took Murray to defend.  Didn't look fantastic in IW, but I think he'll just be that much more motivated here in Miami.  I like his chances to upset a less-motivated Djokovic in the semis.

-Arvis

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

I'd be thrilled with a Nadal win of course. He's just off as of late. I would have actually had him out earlier if he wasn't Nadal. Maybe Murray without Lendl now will actually do something this year. I doubt it will be the tournament though.

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

Okay here are my tie-breakers:

#1 7 aces
#2 113 minutes

I picked Novak to win. I have to say Rafa was on my radar for Miami since the beginning of the season but it seems his back is still bothering me so I played it safe. I have Berdych in the final so you're not alone with the Berd Arvis wink
I have DImitrov beating Roger in the quarters as well as Haas beating Stan in R16. Big calls there. I almost picked Delpo to beat Rafa in the quarters but I thought my draw was crazy enough.

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

Wow Adunar. Those are some big calls. I still haven't woken up to the fact that the men's side is as messy as the women's so I ended up going pretty much as the seeds went. I do have Delpo not winning a match though.
