Our two winners of the 7th Annual Ladies' Wimbledon Suicide Pool. They both beat the draw at this year's Championships.

And PTMcMahon is the winner of our prize from Jon Wertheim at Sports Illustrated - exactly guessing the number of games in the Ladies' Final.

Congrats to our winners, and thanks to all of our players or joining us.

Yeah, congratulations. Any tips for someone constantly losing within the first 3 rounds on the women's draw? If no, I understand... U.S. Open is around the corner ;-)

Congrats PTMcMahon and OrangeBoy19. And as I've said before- I am SO happy today that you all got the medal, and not me.

Lately...for the early rounds...I've been trying to concentrate more on who has the easiest opponent and hasn't been playing totally terrible. Also, don't think too far ahead in the first couple rounds...too many upsets will follow and mess everything up. Just don't pick someone you think could make semis of course. But it's still a lot of luck...I was very lucky Serena lost early enough that I could still redo my plans - she goes one more match and I might've had to mess everything up...maybe pick Sharapova in quarters for example.

As for my method, I try to pick people that I feel have an easy opponent and will lose in the next round. I'm always looking ahead. Then again, this is only my second time doing this and it could have been a fluke.
