Hi Everybody -

So this will be the official TAT thread for the 2011 AO SkanTest. The rules and entry protocol can be found here:

http://www.tennisgamers.com/board/skanteams.php?t_name=2011_AO_SkanCanTest

Many thanks to the TAt Team for allowing me to post this thread here. TAT members have traditionally done very well in the contest, and I hope that will continue in 2011.

But not if you don't participate. So give it a go, and, as always, new contestants are welcome.

As I indicated in my prefatory note, I may not be able to be as up-to-date as usual due to personal circumstances, but the host site will have up to the minute standings as usual.

Thanks, everybody, and best wishes to all contestants.

Peter

My random women trick worked pretty well last time. I'm picking 21 as my cut off...random.org gives me 11, 5, and 14 - Henin, Stosur and Sharapova...I'll take it.

Although since Charlie's Angels have entered, no one would blame you if you felt there was no point. :p

Except that the rankings might change based on the results of Hewitt vs Nalbandian, all the other matches have been posted and MysterX storms out to a narrow Round 1 lead:

Round 2 results are up and here:

http://www.tennisgamers.com/board/skanranking.php?t_name=2011_AO_SkanCanTest

You can also compare with Round 1 results by clicking on the Round1 tab below the ranking table.

MysterX holds on to a slim lead [Team = Clijsters/Nadal/Federer/Azarenka/Henin/Murray]. Long-time competitors TennisAnyone and Maddison are are in a real tussle near the top as well. dry is lurking in the top 10.

34 of 58 contestants still have their full teams intact, and there's lots of tennis to play. Q-points will start to be a factor as of the 3rd round.

Nothing's in the bag yet!

Thank you, Peter! Early days yet, indeed, but it's nice to see so many of taking part having relatively close scores. Looking forward to the next round! :)

hey -

So the Round 3 results are up:

http://www.tennisgamers.com/board/skanranking.php?t_name=2011_AO_SkanCanTest

LukeOrion team [Fed/Kim/Rafa/Soderling/Azarenka/Kvitova] sneaks into the lead. With Quality points now coming into the picture, Kvitova pickers are reaping the rewards.

Five of 58 teams are still fully intact: LukeOrion, Fedexpress06, Manolo, Ribbons, and Jadesa.

Good luck the rest of the way.

Ummm I'm going to bathe in this for a hot minute just because I've never been in 1st for any of these contests.

Hopefully Vika can pull it out over Li.

Should the Djokovic pickers get quality points as Troicki is seeded 30?

Good catch, patrick. I've made the adjustment in the database. Djo pickers get an extra 3 points = :)

Round 4 Standings are posted:

http://www.tennisgamers.com/board/skanranking.php?t_name=2011_AO_SkanCanTest

Fedexpress06, a former SkanTest winner, has surged to the lead. And rightly so, his team of 1. Federer/2. Nadal/3. Clijsters/4. Zvonareva/5. Na Li/6. Wawrinka is the only one of 58 entries fully intact after four rounds. Well done ... but will the lead hold up after Federer and Wawrinka tangle?

Stay tuned!

With Rafa out... I think I may need Li to beat Vera in the final to retain any chance of a finish in the top half of the field :o

Quarter-final standings are up:

http://www.tennisgamers.com/board/skanranking.php?t_name=2011_AO_SkanCanTest

The lead now belongs to Jadesa, with the team:

M#2 Federer
W#3 Clijsters
M#5 Murray
W#16 Sharapova
M#3 Djokovic
W#1 Wozniacki

Fedexpress06 is close behind, then a drop to Cezero in third where things tighten up considerably. The coming key matches will make the difference.

First chance I've had to catch up ... notwithstanding the women's final is in the bag, here are semi-final standings:

http://www.tennisgamers.com/board/skanscoretable.php?t_name=2011_AO_SkanCanTest&ptour=WTA

Jadesa's team consolidates the lead. With 3 out of the four finalists and a pretty solid lead, I'm not sure Jadesa can be supplanted. The leading team consists of:

M#2 Federer
W#3 Clijsters
M#5 Murray
W#16 Sharapova
M#3 Djokovic
W#1 Wozniacki

Time to crown the 2011 AO SkanTest Champ [drumroll]: Jadesa - the onl;y contestant to top 3,000 points! The winning combination, with the unlikely name "The Home Team Never Wins", was:

M#2 Federer
W#3 Clijsters
M#5 Murray
W#16 Sharapova
M#3 Djokovic
W#1 Wozniacki

Congratulations, Jadesa. Send me a PM with the particulars so I can get your prize out to you asap.

Abirbhat rides "Chasing the Grand Slam Dream" to second place, with the team:

M#2 Federer [The Defender]
W#3 Clijsters [The Reincarnated]
M#1 Nadal [The Usurper]
W#13 Henin [The So Called Cheater]
M#3 Djokovic [The Pretender]
W#11 Na Li [The Outsider]

Rounding out the podium was Charlie02123, a former SkanTest winner, with the team Charlie's Angels:

M#2 Federer
W#3 Clijsters
M#4 Soderling
W#13 Henin
M#3 Djokovic
W#11 Na Li

... which means that between 2nd and 3rd places, Nadal > Robin at these championships, anyway.

Complete final standings can be found here:
