Olympics Schmolympics!!!! Everybody knows the true best players in the world are playing in the summer hardcourt swing we all know as The Hard Road to New York. Stop by to gloat, share your regrets, commiserate and mock Donald Young the player you knew you shouldn't have put on your team, but did anyway.

Have fun!

Great start for a lot us ... Matosevic is down a set, and Boglomov also lost first set...but at least won second.

Just saw that Mardy retired from his match with Muller. Any word on what caused the retirement? I know this is going to affect most of our teams.

Apparently it's an ankle injury. Let's hope it's not too serious.

And Fish was supposed to go to town in D.C. during the Olympics...

The good news is almost everyone has Fish...except

Kirkus! Could this help him get back to back medals? The apocalypse truly is imminent! ;)

This isn't really on-topic, but I wasn't sure where to post. Are we doing an Olympics suicide pool?

Nope. It'll include other events but not a SP.

Only one person has Go Soeda (who is dismantling Nishikori, shockingly) on their team and two with Muller. That might be big, considering how close this week will likely be.

Yes, please tell me when Soeda finally learned to play tennis. His super-scrubiness was quite reliable in the past.

I was surprised he won a match or two at Wimbledon.

Yahoo! Giles won! Drinks for everyone in the lounge!:cheesy:

On a European note, it's great to see Tommy Haas having such nice results!

Gah. Brian Baker lost in the first round again. Well, at least everyone is in the same boat since we all picked him. Now to find a classic Tennessee drink...

Mahut gets a chance to avenge yesterday's loss to Berankis...and maybe finally get us some decent points.

We all have him. So now we all drop him, and he goes and reaches the semis at the Rogerīs Cup, pushing one of the big three to a third set tie-breaker.
Count on it.

Well 6 people don't...but don't think they have any great replacements that most of us don't so it's all a wash I guess. And I'm guessing with Toronto and Cincy coming up we're not going to be dropping D guys to get other D guys when few will be playing.

But if we were that is the exact scenario that would happen :)

Aaaand the Toronto field is getting devastated. A bunch of players have already pulled out and there's a good chance Murray and/or Novak may do so as well.

So glad I traded Fish for Tsonga. Brilliant!

I'm already down to 3 people and two are playing each other next round...stick a fork in me!

I was waiting until last Sunday to do a round of trades for Toronto, but I couldn't get on the internet. So I am stuck with Fish and Isner instead of Murray and Del Potro. ;)

I seriously contemplated not trading but chickened out and did it anyways...but like you said might've been the winning move (or non move)

I considered 3 trades: Tsonga (lost early and now out here), Delpo (early loss) and Berdych (idem). So glad I didn't trade them in.

Not that Murray did much better, but still.

Just a reminder that the final trade deadline for THRNY is tomorrow, Sunday August 19th at 2pm Eastern, 11am Pacific. No reason not to use up those trades.....unless you have the perfect team already. :)

Think this sums up THRtNY for me perfectly...Federer earns 100 points in Cincinatti (previously on my team a couple weeks ago.) The 9 people I DO have combine for 118 points.

It could come down to the wire this week. As far as I can tell the top six are the people with legitimate chances to medal. Omegadoom is in the lead and has the most top players left. I believe it's almost impossible for anyone to overtake him (It would take Mayer, Benneteau, or Harrison winning the title, among other things).

The top six all have Querrey, Dolgopolov, and Malisse. Popular picks Paire and Mahut have already lost and contribute zero points. When you factor them out, here are the top six and their players. (If I made a mistake, it's likely to be someone having or not having Roddick or Harrison, who were both traded on and off many teams many times.)

1) Omegadoom-921
Berdych, Isner, Tsonga, Anderson

2) Patrick-899
Berdych, Isner, Anderson, L Mayer

3) Waylandboy-892
Benneteau, Anderson

4) Charlie-884
Tsonga, Harrison

5) Fiercehart-866
Tsonga, Roddick, Anderson

6) Togdyalttai-855
Tsonga, Berydch, Roddick, Anderson

I actually have you with 884, Charlie. You're closer than you think.

Charlie02123

As far as I can tell, these are how things stand among the players who started this week in the top six. I added the point for any players who lost R32 and removed the players we all have.

Omegadoom -922
Berdych, Isner, Tsonga
Patrick -900
Berdych, Isner
Waylandboy -894
No unique players left
Charlie-885
Tsonga
Fiercehart-867
Tsonga, Roddick
Togtdyalttai-856
Tsonga, Roddick, Berdych

So I can pass Waylandboy if Tsonga wins just one more round, but Fiercehart can pass me if Roddick makes the SF, and Tog will pass Fiercehart if Berdych makes the QF, and Patrick is far from safe in the #2 spot.

It's madness I tells ya. Madness!!!!

(I think the only scenario where Omegadoom doesn't take gold is if Berdych and Isner lose their next matches and Roddick takes the title. It that case, I believe Fiercehart would win by a single point.)

Charlie02123

I'm pretty sure Waylandboy and Fiercehart are out of medal contention now. Tog is hot on my heels and will pass me if Berdych wins another round. If that happens, I need Tsonga to win the tournament to have any hope of passing Patrick.

So I need Darcis to pull another upset, or count on Tsonga. It's like bungee jumping with no harness.

I probably am out but I should still have Isner and not sure you contemplated that. Thought I traded Fish out and kept Isner.

Aha! You're right. Well then it looks like it's between you, Tog, and Patrick for the #2 and #3 spots.
