Lowest scores in two tournaments (one by 3) and missed a tournament where the minimum score was 18...great week for me!

Second high score for Umag though, so still very feast or famine.

Hey, I cracked the placements this week - hooray! I've been so close lately, but not quite close enough. Congrats to the winners - it sure isn't a skill contest, it's a crapshoot - no accounting for who is going to w/d or when or why?

Hey - this is a little creepy ... Orange Peterskan wins the ATP but Green Peterskan finishes in a tie for 2nd on the ATP. Is Green Peterskan the evil twin? Were they separated at birth?

What will Randomskan say? Probably "Whatever".

Have made the correction above. Orange Peterskan will stay the winner of the ATP but the Green Peterskan has been booted as BHar11 finished in a tie for 2nd.

Sigh. Either I was trying to be too clever, or I just didn't trust the performance of top players in the week after a major. I had all six of the winners making it to the final, but only two of them winning. I just see in looking back at my picks, that in five of the six tournaments, I had predicted the number two seed to defeat the number one in the final. For the record, top seeds won five of the six tournaments this week, with only Cilic (2) bucking the trend. Had I stuck with the top seeds in the four other tournaments, I would have come out on top for the week.

Congratulations to those who ignored the siren call of upsets to score high this week.

Congrats, son, for winning this week's predictions. That still doesn't mean you know more about tennis than I do! Well done to the other high scorers. I found last week difficult for me to predict - too many tournaments!
