From a start of 376 contestants back on Day 1, we have a mere 6 players still standing going into the finals. Each of the six survived the semifinal match, and has 1 remaining pick for the final. All six saved Rafael Nadal for a final pick, so the only remaining question is whether all 6 can beat the draw.

Our 6 medal winners, and Wimbledon Mens Suicide Pool champions are (in alphabetical order:

Congratulations to our winners. This was an extremely brutal pool, and to have survived, with a pick left, is outstanding :woot:

BTW: For our remaining 6 - be sure to come back tomorrow and make your final selection when we open our Day 13 Mens Finals thread, to make it official if you beat the draw.

P.S. On a personal note - well done to my son BHar11 on making it through the semifinals but running out of picks. :cry: Better luck next time!

I was following BHar's picks TA. I was hoping he'd make it to the final. But he (and all other 37 that lasted through today, but ran out of picks) did a great job getting as far as they did.

Hope everyone will be back for the US Open!

Thanks! This was so much fun (though my work productivity suffered a bit). Now I'm hoping that my luck will continue at the Open.

Thanks, Moose, for running a terrific SP. After four years (!) of trying to wend my way through a Grand Slam Suicide, making a couple final weekends, and even winning one of PeterSkan's contest (though that didn't earn me a precious TAT medal), I have to say it feels good to remain standing at the end (despite the fact that it of course takes plenty of luck to get here). Hopefully Rafa can get the win so we can say we actually "beat the draw."

Cheers and see you for the USO . . .

Thank you for the kind words Deuce (and everyone). It's always our pleasure to host everyone for a Suicide Pool.

don't forget to make your final pick so you get credit for beating the draw when if Rafa wins.

Whohoo! I'm so excited!

Special thanks to my husband for rationalizing why I should I change my quarter final pick from Berdych to Soderling. Though I disagreed with his reasoning (he though Berdych might lose) and I WAS stewing in the 5th set with Ferrer, it was the best decision. Maybe he will play next time...

Thanks to all who run this awesome game and giving us that little extra excitement as the tournament continues.

Go Rafa!

congratulations to all 6.. and thanks a million to the moderators of this event... it was a lot of fun..though I am not sure I will play it again.. I find it intereferes with my enjoyment of the tournament.. I end up caring more about my own silly picks than about the game itself!

If you'll give us just one more chance--at the U.S. Open--I'm absolutely convinced we can turn you into a full-fledged contest whore. You've got superb potential! :cheesy:

Great job to all the winners and the rest who ran out of picks before the final.
To Survive is very tough.

Thanks as always to the organizers and TAT'rs who make this possible.

Congratulations to all six of you! It is totally phenomenal to have made it this far! Moose said all 6 of you saved Nadal .....did all 6 of you also save Berdych? Will we have a new slam champion tomorrow? :)
