We have a winner. I'm announcing this before the men's finals tomorrow because I am leaving in mid-morning to drive my younger daughter to Calgary, and won't be back home until Tuesday. No point keeping everyone in suspense!

After posting the results of the women's final today, Moose leads Madame by 29 points. They both have Federer and Nadal. Moose has seeded Nadal first and Fed second, while Madame has seeded Nadal second and Fed fourth.

The maximum that Madame can make up on Moose through a domination points differential is 18 points, if Nadal triple bagels Fedex. Madame and Moose will cancel each other out on Victory and Quality points.

There is the possibility of greater differential points to be earned by the 18 other contestants who only have 1 of the finalists on their team [16 of these have just Nadal, whereas 2 have just Fed]. kayce has the highest point count among this batch, but is too far behind to catch up to either Moose or Madame on domination points differential alone.

kayce can nevertheless be commended for having the most competitive team without both Fed & Nadal:

1. Nadal
2. Jankovic
3. Ferrer
4. Dementieva
5. Djokovic
6. Safina

The bottom line, however, is that Moose simply cannot be caught. The winning team is

1. Nadal
2. Federer
3. Ivanovic
4. Djokovic
5. Jankovic
6. Medina-Garrigues

Congratulations to Moosovic not only for winning the tourney, but for defending the RG title, which he won last year as well. That's an extremely difficult thing to do in this game, expecially with the size and knowledge of the participants.

So, congrats to you, Moose. PM me your address again so I can get your prize to you [which will probably be in July].

Thanks again to all contestants. I will post the final results on Tuesday and hope to have the changes to the all-time stats next weekend.

Thank you to Kirkus and the rest of the TAT team for your support in running the contest here. Kirkus has been a supportive problem solver in seeing to it that some of the SkanCanTest quirks can be accommodated here, and I very much appreciate the visibility he has given to it over the years.

Congratulations, Moose for a well-earned win. Serbians have done it again as they made the semis(with Ana taking the WTA FO title) with 2 finalists tomorrow.

Congrats, Moose.

Now, maybe time to consider STOPPING WINNING THINGS?


Thanks, Peter, for your work on the contest!

Thanks for your kind word everyone.....and huge props to our good friend Peterskan.

It was a honor winning last year, and defending my title this year is real cool. Especially since my team was 1/2 Serbs.

I think Madame's fine choices will be rewarded in predictions this week. She really played well, as did most of the TAT family.

The alacrity with which Nadal summarily dispatched Fedex allowed me to update the database and post these final results. Obviously I didn't think it would be that bad, but there you go.

So Moose is officially crowned, with Madame grabbing the silver, and a strong showing by edma in the final rounds to snatch the bronze.

Congrats again and see you at Wimbledon in a few weeks!!

I think we can rightfully claim Edma, but even without him, TAT kicked some ass.

:yes: Edma is ours, heck he came to our tailgate and a TAT event before that.

Again congrats all on the podium!

Congrats Moose, on not just winning, but repeating as French Open SkanCan champion. And how sweet to do it with your three favourites. I'd have liked to pick Ana, but I had no faith in her play coming in to this tournament.
