I couldn't find last year's Aussie open racquet bracket thread, so I'm starting a new one.
For those of you who don't know, racquet bracket is a tennis contest on the tennis channel website.

I can't decide on whether putting Serena past Azarenka or not. I know she's injured, but I don't know what to do...

I'm in, but I'm too embarrassed to talk about my picks. I made a lot of gambles

I'm in the women's pool (needed to so I could figure out YCWJ for the women). I have Clijsters beating Serena for the title, with A Radwanska and Dinara making the semis (but I've since decided Maid Marion is going to come out of the fourth quarter... not going to change it, though, since it's a pretty nutty pick).

I treated it like fantasy tennis, so I have Venus over Sharapova, and Roddick over Djokovic.

Feelin' REAL!!!!!!! good about my choice of Sharapova to make the SF.

Not to mention, there's still time for my QF pick Wickmayer to make some magic!!!!!!!! :thumbsup:

Unfortunately, we underestimated TAT friend Vania King. :rolleyes:

HARUMPH!!!!!!!!!! Convenient record keeping here!!!!!!! I'm in 23rd place. :mad: (AND this ain't factoring in yet that I actually picked Zheng to beat Bartoli- they haven't put this result in yet. Albeit, my Jankovic and Sharpova QF match may not work out so well for me.) :p

Currently in 525th place with the ATP. Albeit, I now see that I DID pick Isner to beat Monfils here (they haven't put this result in yet.) SHEEEEESH. Shoulda paid attention to my OWN picks here with the Pool. :mad:

I SWEAR that I am the 2010 Australian Open Jinx King, hands down.

'Cause- guess who has Kim winning this thing?!?!?

IN other words- NEVER MIND. :p

Okay I'm bumping because I'm stoked out of my gourd.

I'm currently 31st on the ATP side, and if every single match left goes my way (11 matches left) then I will win! (There's a tiny bit of flexibility in the top half, but not much.)

This is the closest I've ever gotten. If it doesn't work out, I can still say I was 11 matches away. :)

Mysterx is currently 104th on the ATP side and ALSO has a chance to win the whole thing!

For cheering purposes:

My picks:
QF: Fed d Davydenko, Djokovic d Tsonga, Cilic d Roddick, Murray d Nadal
F: Djokovic over Murray

MysterX picks:
QF: Fed d Davydenko, Djokovic d Tsonga, Cilic d Roddick, Nadal d Murray
F: Djokovic over Cilic

Let's hope one of these happens! :)

BTW, it doesn't look like any of us is doing that great on the WTA. I checked the 'TAT' names. I'm currently highest at 704, with no hope of moving up (bottom half is ALL gone).

Anyone without TAT in their name doing well?

I'm not doing too well either. I'm at 355

I'm doing even worse on the men's. I'm 2158 :p

I just checked your best "what-if" scenario. You could get as high as 7th if everything goes right!

Of course, you picked Venus to win, so...

#411 ATP, #42 WTA. AND let's just skip over the part where nelslus has Jelena, Kim and Dinara in the QF, Kim beating Maria in the SF, and Kim winning the whole thing.

For any kind of redemption in THIS ATP contest, I need Fed to beat Rafa in the final. I have Roddick and Novak as SF losers. Went an entirely different route with the :steven: contest. Figured it wasn't fair to burden the group with my personally always rootin' for Fed. :o














(Except we all know that Rafa's gonna win.....)

Wow! That's top 1%.

I checked your best "what-if?" You can get as high as 12th! Someone other than Henin from the bottom half has to win, but still!

No kidding? Too funny. Apparently I wasn't the only one who thought Kim was goin' far.

P.S. I sez your Nadia's takin' out Justine, and that's final. No jinx at work here.

I think so, too. I can sense she's dying for another crack at that banshee. She's just been warming up.

I would die. I would absolutely die.

I'm already trying to get some pills prescribed for when the inevitable Justine final victory takes place.

But, as much fun as it can be to take cracks at The Forever Underachieving (Paging Little Tommy)- it is also always great when said players "shock" us and do break out and let their talents lead to triumphs (Paging Nadia and Miss Kirilenko.) No doubt Nadia can beat Justine, especially having slain the huge Kim and Kuz (for her) demons. As for what WILL happen......:freekingout:

Hi,
This Forum is very nice, I want share on Australian Open 2011 related information

Yeah the site is really screwy, because everytime I'm logged in and click the women's bracket it won't load it.I had to log out, click on the women's bracket, after which itlog in while viewing it to make my picks.

Also, the annoying part is that once we enter the private pool, we have to wait for the pool creator to confirm our entry in order to make picks.

They tried for it to be better this point around, (TC and Tourney Topia) but ended up being making a few things worse.

Maybe because this thread is from six years ago. I'm surprised this thread isn't locked.
