Bump...WTA ready. If you picked Kvtiova to make final like I did (or even win) then make sure to re-do!

I hope some of you had as much fun as I did, making bonus picks!

Start by eliminating all the names I don't know, then randomly pick one of the teams remaining based on who might have some momentum at the moment.

There was some serious bottom half Djokovic love. Only two had Federer making semi - one with him winning final, one with losing. Everyone else, except for two people has Djokvoic in final. The other final picks - Nishikori (atlpam) and Cilic (me).

In the top half, 4 have Del Potro making final (and winning too), rest have Rafa.

Winner picks - 10 Djokovic, 8 Nadal, 4 Del Potro, 1 Federer.

For women - from top half, all but 3 have Serena, other 3 have Stephens.

Bottom half - 14 have Keys, 4 have Osaka, 3 had Sabalenka, 2 had Sharapova.

Winners - 19 with Serena, 2 with Stephens (texasniteowl and me), 1 Sabalenka, 1 Osaka (atlpam.)

Atlpam and I the most off the board this week!

I've been doing so bad on predictions this year, I figured I'd take some risks - kind of like an ill-advised drop shot, if you make it you look like a genius, otherwise you just have bad shot selection. ;)

Looks like your drop shots are doing better here than Fed's did last night...

Nobody had Sevatsova in semis. And only one has Isner (the Moz) - everyone else has Del Potro.

That was me (3mlm), not atlpam, with the Nishikori final pick, an accidental wrong click, which may or may not be lucky.

And, alas, the lone Sabalenka pick for winner as well.

I had Del Potro over Djokovic in the final.

Like usual, take everything I say with a grain of salt :) Especially at 2 in the morning.

14/19 people picked the men's doubles correctly. Wonder how that compares to the Hingis superteams in terms of overall percentage correct.

Sidebars
- 10 are still eligible for women's doubles
7 are still eligible for mixed doubles.
All but 3 picked Serena for the final.
4 had Osaka in the final.

I only pointed it out because I was right there with you. :) And now unfortunately, we're also 2 of the 4 who have neither mens finalist. Our first picks are going to decide which of us gets last probably.

Meanwhile 4 people had both mens finalists: Atlpam, JazzNU, patrick, and PeterSkan. Perhaps a bit surprisingly, all have JMDP to win final.

I might have gone differently, i.e. with Djokovic, if I had paid more attention to his h2h record with del Potro. Just thought it was time for the big guy to step up.
