View Full Version : Men's Day 14 (Sun) Final Aus Open SP Pick

THE FINAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You have made it! Congratulations! You have the chance to beat the draw, receive a medal, and play the tiebreak for a chance at the prize package!

But, there are two steps:

First step: Post your day 14 pick in this thread.

Yes, we know who each of you are going to pick, BUT you must make it official by making your choice in this thread.

Second step: The tiebreak

As we only have one prize to give away, courtesy of Jon Wertheim at Sports Illustrated, we will have the following tiebreak in place to determine the winner of the prize.

After you make your selection, you are to send a Private Message to shtexas with your answers to the following two questions:

1) Number of games played in the mens final- (we are looking for whoever comes closest to the total number of games, regardless of whether they are over or under the actual number)

2) Number of Winners hit by the mens champion in the final (we will use the Official scoreboard on the Australian Open site to determine the number).

If we are able to break the tie using the 1st tiebreaker alone, we will do so. If after the first tiebreak we still have a tie, we will use the second.

To send a PM, click my name from this post (above the lovely photo of Novak and Richard) and click "send a private message to shtexas" from the drop down menu.

If you have any questions about the tiebreak, you can post them here.

(Also note - anyone tied for first place in our 6th Annual AOSP will receive a medal in the "Awards Showcase", under their avatar/screen name.)

I will post your tiebreak answers once the thread is closed.

Speaking of closing, see the deadline in blue below. I chose to close this thread and the tiebreak 1/2 hour before the men's final starts because that way I can close the thread, post your tiebreak answers, put on a big pot of coffee, and be ready to enjoy the final.

Picks are due no later than Sunday 1/31 7:00 p.m. Australian time, that is Sunday, 3:00 a.m. USA Eastern Time. This thread will be closed promptly at the deadline.

Your final:

Roger Federer SUI (1) v Andy Murray GBR (5)
