Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

I don't think you looked at my team. My name isn't on any of those.

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

Arnaud, I also have Sharapova as a finalist.  You missed someone else as well, as you show only 36 women's finalist picks & there are 38.  Looks like it was probably JG.

You don't appear to be in the Yoda Cup, JG. :\

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

Okay, Don, I missed you and CC.

JG, you do not appear in the Yoda Cup at all!

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

That's weird! It appears under leagues for me but my team isn't in there

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

Should I email Charles?

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

That is probably the best idea Jolive. Hope to see you back in there soon

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

My women's team has disappeared! Not idea why. That's probably why I was kicked from Yoda though.

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

Very well could be as you must have both to compete.  Also HTS, as a side note, you must have match picks turned off, or you will be kicked out too.

Who is that in your pic, BHP?

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

Mc Enroe, Connors and Borg.  Please tell me you recognize them now or at least know of them.

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

Thanks tongue
Wawrinka thru in straights!! Yeah baby!!

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

But I already have match picks turned off, I made sure of that in June. When I check my account options now, it look ok. BHP, where does it say I have them turned on?

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

It doesn't say that anywhere, StatGuy.  Milo was just giving you a friendly warning in case you had it turned on because we've had others kicked out who failed to turn Auto Pick off.  It happens when the Match Picks start.  It was a prophylactic measure, so to speak, but that's as far as I'm going with that one!

Not having both teams picked will not kick you out of the league (you're still a member), but in order to compete in any slam all members must have both teams picked.  People like Aiur & Adrian are still in the league though they picked no teams.  You should e-mail Charles with your women's team, JG.  It may be too late to fix it at this point, but it's worth a try.

I note that Thexc is not in the league either.  I wonder what happened there.  Maybe he didn't get his teams made?

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

Ok, I was just afraid something was wrong with my setting. Thanks for the warning BHP and the clarification Don!

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

I lost my men's draw...I think because I had picked Eisner or some other Yank and his rank was wrong.....and, then once it got fixed it killed my draw.  sad

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

I'm back in Yoda.

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

Hey Everyone! I know I'm not in the Yoda Cup this time around (mostly because I don't follow women's tennis), but I thought I would post my picks for you as well:

Federer (champion), Djokovic (finalist), Ferrer, Murray, Raonic, Monfils, Kohlschreiber, and Goffin.

Let the best fantasy tennis player win!! big_smile

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

Most of your players already won their first round, so no chance of a -16.

However, he has a team full of 0s on the women's side, so that's really going to hold him back.

Re: 2014 US Open Yoda Cup

Haha. Arvis, I used to be a fan of women's tennis back with Justine Henin, Kim Clijsters, Lindsay Davenport, and others, but I don't follow it that much these days except on occasion. But we'll see how things go on the men's side! ;-)
