These are sure going to be fun tournaments to predict.

I forgot another one... Being done with finals is doing wonders for my drinking habit but not so much for my predictions scores.

I essentially flipped a coin for the women's tournaments. Those draws are hilarious.

"Bad Gastein" ?

I'd hate to be the winner of this tourney :shocked:

The winner of this week deserves a medal all by itself.

Some gems include JJ winning more than one match; a sloth of headcases doing grand things and Mahut as runner-up :hyst:

I got a (Ursula) Radwanska - Zheng final...and that seems the more likely of my women's finals to occur to me.

Dry, Is your dog still around to make picks? I was going to throw all the WTA names in a bowl and just pick whoever came out first but decided to go with the darts instead!!

Seriously, I just made 10 second gut picks (way faster and probably almost as good or bad as the hat or the dart board).

Oh gosh, this is a mess. Birmingham finalist Vesninia out already. Queen's Club finalist Lopez out already. Queen's Club champion Tsonga out already (and potentially out of WImbledon too--that's one Green Acres trade to be made). And Melanie Oudin is into the quarters!!!

All this craziness makes me feel better about having picked a wild card to win a tournament this week. (and now I've just jinxed that)

I lost Tsonga as well. Add to that, finalist Mahut and winner CSN. Just awful.


What happened to Tsonga btw?

This week is an unmitigated disaster.

The men's events are a disaster. For the wta, I still have a chance to have the correct finalists in Birmingham (although they haven't played the quarters, so I'm not holding my breath), and shockingly, I have 3 of the 4 semifinalists in Bad Gastein.

Same here...and it wasn't a winner (guessing yours wasn't either?)

Nope. Lost to Haas. Not that I had him winning anyways.

Meanwhile, I am supremely disturbed that I'm actually happy for Miss Believe! is in the final. It's a good thing I have my old therapist on speed dial.
