2. Update the all-time scores and upload accordingly

3. Complete the analysis of changes to the contest per Mike's work

I am seriously considering randomly picking my women from the seeds.

I'd convey your thought to RandomSkan, but he'd just forget.

I was just thinking...I'd be like a half random scan. If I do it I may set some cut-off point...ex random among top 20 seeds.

Good for you. In contrast, RandomSkan doesn't actually think, epitomizing impulsiveness.

Mind you, he's a great jazz player, though as you can imagine the rest of the band has trouble following his modulations.

When he shows up for the gigs.

Kudos to ztm715, hawkgirl98 and Federex for getting the ball rolling in the 2010 USO Contest.

Don't dawdle. The draw is out. Get your picks in while you can:

Peter, I checked the various standings. I had NO idea. I can only assume this is the beginning of the end.

In this case I quite relish saying "I told you so"! Well done! You can say you've walked a mile in 3mlm's shoes, who was a solidly consistent contestant but never won any of the slams. She also held down the number one spot and for a while led the all-time standings.

And then she retired.

:(

Here's hoping you don't follow suit.

I'm going with 3 of the top 4 guys...and I'm going to randomly take 3 from the women's top 20 seeds....my random generator gave me #1, #2, #5.

Hmmm...that's not enough...so I'll take my surprise semifinalist Richard Gasquet instead of my other losing Semifinalist I guess (Nadal)

For unseeded players...is it 0 we enter?

Your "random" generator gave you 1, 2, and 5? Highly improbable, but certainly possible. lol RandomSkan is not impressed [i.e. he's jealous]. His highest on either side is Cilic.

Good luck with your team [i.e. Gasquet] lol.

Technically, my random generator gave me 1...2...2...5. Didn't think I could take Clijsters twice though. Like I said I limited it to 1-20 though. I ran some tests before I did my real one and it seemed to be randomly doing it ok.

For unseeded players, you keep it blank. The computer assigns them a seed.

Charlie,

Before you get your hopes up...the reason why you are currently ahead of everyone is b/c you submitted Fran Schiavone's ranking (7) and put down Vera's name. You are going to be stuck with Vera :) and your ranking is going to drop as soon as I put the correct ranking in :) Sorry!

I wasn't positive on most of those seedings. Vera was who I intended. :)

Peter/Missin',

I looked at my team on the other website, and for some reason I have Rafa listed twice - as Mens #1 and Mens #2. My Mens #2 should, of course, be Federer. As I getting the points for Fed even though the name listed is wrong/Rafa?

The name doesn't matter. That's why you can see some REALLY weird names listed....one gamer has them listed "A B C D E F" :)

As long as you have the rank number correct, you get the points, but just the same, we'll correct your name later tonight.

If I understand Ace correctly, there are no more updates possible after the start of play, so it may be that TA's team won't be "corrected", but the score will still be properly calculated as intended.

The bigger issue was seeing teams with players not correctly associated with the ranking in the table on the entry page. That would have resulted in contestants getting credit for different players than they had intended. I vetted the teams before the deadline. I'll remember to do that next time.

In the meantime, TA's teams is A-OK, even though it continues to have Nadal listed twice.

We list the ranking on the side of the page where you submit your team. It shouldn't be the problem that it is...

When the #2 seed is listed as #4...and the #5 seed is listed as #6....you can see where it can begin to get confusing easily. :) And some of us just can't follow directions easily.

We don't use seed, we use rank. That's why we want people to follow what's given on the page, not use the seeding the tournament uses.

OK - here we go. The 7 Berdych pickers are smarting after Round 1. But as expected, it's anybody's game. And we already know that the second round has brought its share of pain, especially to Roddick and Azarenka pickers [like me]. I wonder, did anyone have both of them?

And how about that RandomSkan? The Aleatoric Crew has survived Round 1 intact - a first I think for RSkan, though he's still languishing in the bottom tier. Curse those Domination points!

Congrats to obintoma for snagging the early lead. Enjoy it while it lasts.
Cuz it almost never does.

OH CHARLIE!!!! I am at the same time....totally LMAO and......dismayed. When you posted this I went to go check your team out. :(

You are not getting ANY points for your player number one. I had noticed someone had put in a double for Sharapova....so on the Admin board we had her listed as #12 AND #14. I deleted the 14 b/c she's 12 :) So you get no points at all for player number one.

Player number three is Caroline Wozniacki. So you are getting points for Caroline instead of Kimmy :(

Player number five is ....(LMAO!) Gael Monfils...so you get Gael's points instead of Fish's points.

It might be too late in the game because we are heading into round three....but let me confer with the bosses (Ace and PeterSkan) to see if we can correct this. You don't deserve to be in the bottom rung but....I'm still LMAO :)

I'm really surpised since I went through all the teams and corrected any discrepancies. I don't know how I missed yours, Charlie, since there are several of them. But missin is right, you are not getting the points you had intended. What I can do is track the points you would have got with the team you had intended and use that instead in the rankings. It's clear from your entry who you had wanted on your team.

Just remember next time to use the rankings, not the seeds. Thanks and sorry.

Sorry for all the trouble, gang. It happened because the USO completely snuck up on me. I submitted my picks just barely before the deadline. That's probably why you didn't notice the issues.

If it's going to be a big hassle, feel free to just delete my team. I wouldn't want to run the two of you ragged for a fun game.

Yup. Those quality points can make a huge difference because he is going to be meeting seeds early on and the more seeds he meets and the higher the seeds are...the more points you get.

But it's a risk you know. I hate taking risks like that! I can't wait to see Gasquet in the next round :)

All right - here we are with the round 2 results. And here's an interesting thing ... the only two contestants that have earned Quality points so far are our first place team ... ptmcmahon ... and our last place team .. TerrenceIkeMcGee.

Well - it's still early going yet, but the 13 A-Rod pickers are feeling let down right now .. well, at least I know I am :(

But at least they have company with the 25 Azarenka pickers. What a shame. Did anyone pick both Andy and Vika?

Ace has added a great new feature that's gonna save me a whole bunch of time. The up-to-date ranking page now has round-by-round tabs at the bottom of the page where you can see the standings for each round.

Here's the current standings page: http://www.tennisgamers.com/board/skanranking.php?t_name=2010_USO_SkanCanTest

At the bottom of the page you will see the tabs. But her is the direct link to the round 3 standings:

Congrats to moasey for taking the lead through 3 rounds. ptmcmahon is just behind in second.

And thank you, Ace. You're the man!

Well - the good news about Murray's loss is that 44 contestants had him selected. The real beneficiaries are the 20 [*ahem* like me] who avoided him like the plague. erm not that I'm rubbing it in, mind you.

So Round 4 results are up on the Round 4 tab on the up-to-the-minute rankings page:

http://www.tennisgamers.com/board/skanranking.php?t_name=2010_USO_SkanCanTest

or directly here:

http://www.tennisgamers.com/board/skanroundranking.php?t_name=2010_USO_SkanCanTest&rd=4

Congrats to moasey for continuing to hold a fairly strong lead again through Round 4. moasey has Woz, Fed, Clijsters, Nadal as seeds 1-4. But will it hold through to the end of the tourney?

What do you think?

BHAR has stormed to the lead. He has the two women's finalists and if Fed beats Nole he will have the two men's finalists as well.

Not too shabby.

I will be so thrilled for TA" s Bhar11 if he wins that I won't care that I'm on the absolute bottom.

The Women's final is set to go, so time to note that BHar maintains the lead after the Fed implosion, and has both women's finalists.

But there are four Djoko pickers in the mix, all lurking within the top 15. We've got a nailbiter on our hands!

My men's picks I did myself: SF loss, R16 loss, R32 loss

My random women: Winner, SF loss, QF loss

If only I had done my men randomly...of course I had Rafa on my team but took him out because my random women were too high seeded.

Congrats, jk! Bhar11 is going to be soooo disappointed! He had me checking the standings before he had to go to bed and asking me if I thought he had a chance to win. I told him I thought he had a chance, but things were so close between those top 3 teams. Nevertheless, he's done quite well this time (as have I!), and he keeps beating me . . . both in this contest and BotBs where he finished 5th overall! I'm proud of him (but I still know more about tennis than he does :lipsrsealed:)!

TA

P.S. Thanks for wishing him well missin'! I'll let him know that too!
