In my case, I've managed not to double-pick myself out of the tournament. I felt stupid that day... taking Tsonga twice one time.

Day 9 breakdown:

39 Murray
17 Nadal
2 Berdych

58

The 17 Nadal's go down.

In the process, damaging the hopes of those hoping to beat the draw.

The Berdych pickers look like geniuses, but remember, they too must survive the Wawrinka-Nishikori sweepstakes.

Sigh. Can't hear the draw and lost Rafa :( For the record I would have happily lost the SP to see him win the title.

In the meantime, should Murray advance, I see less than 10 Murray pickers who saved Berdych.

LOL, and of course I'm the total opposite. I can't beat the draw, either. Was rooting for Rafa to lose at any point (same for Novak)- so, I'm happy to sacrifice my imaginary medal for this- as I'm expecting this to be the case, since I only have Stan and Novak left to play.

That's the dark side of this contest- rooting for players because you picked them, when otherwise you'd root for the opponent. However, in this case- like I said, my medal can go. Worthy sacrifice.

Nadal loses!!! that's better than any medal. :cool: Now its time for Djoker to go down and have an interesting end to this tournament. Nishikori-Kyrgios would be a refreshing change but it would probably destroy everyones chance of beating the draw.

funkstar
01-27-2015, 06:25 AM
I know the feeling: Should Wavs win, I'd be happy for my next - forced and final - pick of Djokovic to go down in flames. Even better: I could be out of picks!

shtexas
01-27-2015, 10:58 AM
Please be careful. Looking over the day 10 picks, I see a couple of double-picks.

kknudsen
01-27-2015, 12:29 PM
well it looks like I only have one more day of playing since the semis are spread over two days and I've already played Berdych and Murray. Damn you Nadal for losing!!!! That sucks :(

The men's semis are on separate days, but only one pick is due (otherwise no one could ever beat the draw at the Aussie). It will be due a few hours before start of play for the first men's semi.

Day 10 breakdown:

16 Wawrinka
14 Nishikori
9 Djokovic

39

Would have had 41. Unfortunately, while the other 2 made picks, they were double-picks (each used Nishikori earlier), eliminating them.

Tigress
01-27-2015, 05:20 PM
Now that future choices are locked in I guess it's OK to talk "tactics". I'm hanging by a thread like most of us. By my calculations the only way for me to have a medal is for Nishikori to win tonight and then get a Djokovic-Berdych final. Then the bulk of us (tonights' Nishikori pickers) would be in the same boat as the 2 Berdych pickers (and 1 of them in fact would be red). Then there would be a massive tie for 1st (no-pick in the final) but no one would beat the draw. Same in reverse for the Wawrinka pickers if Stan wins tonight and the rest happens the same. Seems the Djokovic people have a harder road: Djoker wins tonight then loses his semi while Berdych wins his. Does this sound right?

Tigress
01-27-2015, 05:23 PM
Of course I wasn't even considering the effects of a Feliciano Lopez win over Djokovic tonight. :))

shtexas
01-27-2015, 05:25 PM
But then you have to look at someone like nad55, who has Djokovic today, but still holds (ready for this?) Wawrinka, Nishikori and Berdych!

mmmm8

That would be impressive but would have to involve a lot of plastic surgery for Raonic :)

Have to confess that my pick of Djokovic in the QF was based on a hunch that this was Nishikori's tournament :( now all that can rescue me is a Stan/Berdych final (but which to pick first ?) :confused:

25 survived day 10.

However, 2 of those 25 have used all four semifinalists previously and are, therefore, out of picks.

Of the 23 left, I am counting, I think, 4 who can still beat the draw.

2 have chosen Berdych in the semis and are holding Wawrinka

1 has chosen Wawrinka in the semis and is holding Murray

1 has chosen Djokovic in the semis and is holding Berdych

Going to be an interesting finish!

If I am seeing it correctly, this means get your semis picks in (2 are missing) because a Djokovic-Murray final will result in 20 winners. Otherwise, we'll have one or two.

I'm pretty sure this is right (but I'm not infallible):

Djokovic-Murray final: 20 people win their semis pick and are out of picks for the final. The end.

Djokovic-Berdych final: 1 winner with a chance to beat the draw

Wawrinka-Murray final: 1 winner with a chance to beat the draw

Wawrinka-Berdych final: 2 winners with a chance to beat the draw

Slight revision. 17 winners in case of a Djokovic-Murray final (assuming the one person missing gets their pick in). I forgot not everyone who cannot beat the draw had Djokovic left. There are two who had Wawrinka only left and one with only Berdych.

Tigress

Looks to me like there is one still playing who hasn't yet picked Murray and could pick him in a Djoker-Murray final. So there wouldn't be a 17-way tie in that event. Just one winner.

Tigress
01-28-2015, 12:16 PM
The big tie would happen if there's a Djoker-Berdych final.

Are you talking about Lemnos2? Only one I see who hasn't used Murray. Used Djokovic in the quarters. Using Wawrinka in the semis. Saving Murray for the final. That would be a Wawrinka/Murray final.

Miles is the only one I see with a Djoker-Berdych combo left. Using Djoker in the semis. A Djokovic-Berdych final would leave him as the only one left with a pick for the final.

Might work better if I go ahead and type in the semi choices received so far (one person left to pick. But, they only have Djoker)
