As always, Newcomers are more than welcome :) The basic rules are clearly posted on the entry template

And once again, sincere thanks to the presiding TAT staff for allowing this thread as an outside contest.

All contestants are in the running for the SKAN prize - a modest gift of my selection from the wonderful product lines of the Royal Canadian Mint !!!!

Congratulations to TAT's MysterX for winning the 2015 French Open SKAN. I'll be posting the final updates to the all-time data tables as time permits over the next week or so. In the meantime, the clock's ticking ... so get to those entries, chaps!

Wrong contest. :( You want you YCWJ - the contest for losers.

Or.... I was being facetious.

Wow, Halep actually does have a plausible road to being the wooden spoon. Halep-Cepelova-Niculescu-(Pliskova-Lisicki-Kerber-Kvitova-Serena).

Wasn't Fernando Gonzalez the wooden spoon twice one year? It's crazy when it happens to a top player.
...
Back to this thread, I decided Lisicki had a reasonable shot at the title and basically bet everything on it. She's my 1 player. It could all explode for me when she plays Bacsinszky in the third round.

Oops - forgot to mention that MysterX was the second round leader and so the third round tier titles were his choice :)

MysterX' team, Great Green Gremlins, is made up of:

1. Murray
2. Kvitova
3. Serena
4. Djokovic
5. Azarenka
6. Gasquet

Wow - it's only been three rounds and there's only one SKAN contestant with a fully intact team. That honour goes to long-time participant anishmitch. Here's the make-up of "I saw Stefan Edberg on the Tube":

Point Contribution

Seed Name D + V + Q = Total

1 Djokovic 144 + 60 + 7 = 211
2 Serena 125 + 60 + 0 = 185
3 Wozniacki 132 + 60 + 1 = 193
4 Berdych 56 + 60 + 0 = 116
5 Azarenka 57 + 60 + 0 = 117
6 Kyrgios 20 + 60 + 25 = 105

Total 534 + 360 + 33 = 927

omess and Martini4me, I am trying to get your teams into the SKAN. I only saw them today posted on here - don't know how I missed them. It's complicated because the deadline has passed but stay tuned.

Following Novak's come-from-behind 4th round victory, the SKAN lead bounces back to MysterX. Here's the point total breakdown for Great Green Gremlins:


MysterX

Point Contribution

Seed Name D + V + Q = Total

1 Murray 151 + 110 + 14 = 275
2 Kvitova 152 + 30 + 0 = 182
3 Serena 130 + 110 + 17 = 257
4 Djokovic 84 + 110 + 26 = 220
5 Azarenka 78 + 110 + 2 = 190
6 Gasquet 35 + 110 + 26 = 171

Total 630 + 580 + 85 = 1295

I always seem to have an out-of-town commitment at the tail end of the slams. *sigh*

So MysterX continued with the lead after the quarter finals, but was overtaken by previous SKAN champion serenarulz09 after the semis. Serenarulz09 held on to win the SKAN by 96 points with the following combo:


Point Contribution

Seed Name D + V + Q = Total

1 Serena 309 + 530 + 69 = 908
2 Djokovic 214 + 530 + 94 = 838
3 Federer 173 + 320 + 61 = 554
4 Kvitova 91 + 30 + 0 = 121
5 Stephens 20 + 30 + 5 = 55
6 Gasquet 30 + 190 + 54 = 274

Total 837 + 1630 + 283 = 2750
