Here are some of the picks that could turn out to be completely correct. Special props go to missin for her epic call of Federer winning the French (looking good so far!) and winston for getting both Davydenko and Del Potro correct (assuming Federer beats him).

Guess I need Fed to win Wimbledon now to get one point there (although I also have Nadal's best showing as Wimby...so I can't get both!)

Davydenko looks good so far!

And Del Potro...at least I so far have the round right.

I knew I'd blown the AO, so I didn't even check this time. I completely forgot that it was a top10 prediction; I was only looking at the winners. So thanks for letting me know that I at least got 2 of them right.

I also notice as I'm typing that I used a semi-colon in the last paragraph. I don't think they show up very often in internet postings. Guess the old English major in me never completely goes away. Have any of you ever read the wonderful treatise on punctuation called Eats Shoots and Leaves?

I haven't read that but I love semicolons! I use them a lot. :)
