After making your final choice in this thread, for the prize from Jon Wertheim, please prepare your best answers to the following 2 questions. Do NOT post them in this thread, but send them to me via Private Message (just click on my name at the left of this post, and then pick "Send a Private Message" from that drop-down menu).

Please send the PM before the men's final begins - 2:00 pm London, 9:00 a.m. US East Coast

1. What will be the total number of GAMES played in the men's final?
The closest answer, without going over the actual number will win the prize.

IF two or more contestants are still tied after that question, we'll go to the 2nd tiebreaker question:

2. What will the total length of the final match in MINUTES be?
Again, closest answer without going over will win.

I'm sorry to sound dumb, but I would like to have an explanation for this part:
"The closest answer, without going over the actual number will win the prize."

Does it mean that anyone who gives the best estimate from below wins?
That is to say, if A says it is, whatever, 10 games, B says 15, and in reality it turns out to be 14 - then A wins.
Have I understood it correctly?

And, yes, my last pick is, of course, Rafael NADAL.
Kinda don't have any other choice :D
