so we are not predicting the Next Gen tourney at all? Kind of relieved, I guess. So nothing is due until Fed Cup this Saturday?

We don't normally do predictions on exhibitions.

So, it looks like atlpam missed the deadline, putting mysterX in the top 8 as alternate. Looking at the picks among the top 8, everyone picked Djokovic and Federer to win their RR matches, everyone picked Cilic to beat Isner, everyone picked Nishikori to beat Thiem, and everyone picked Djokovic to beat Federer in the final. That leaves four RR matches with disagreement:

Zverev vs Cilic (Omega, Miles, and Drop have Zverev)
Zverev vs Isner (tenedab and dry have Isner)
Anderson vs Thiem (Anderson just won, FEBravo and mysterX had Thiem)
Anderson vs Nishikori (tenedab has Anderson)

For the semis:

tenedab has Anderson making the semis
mysterX has Thiem making the semis
Omega, Miles, and Drop have Zverev making the semis while the rest of us have Cilic; in fact, Omega, Miles, and Drop have the exact same picks across the board. If they are right about Zverev winning two RR matches, those will be the medalists.

If they are wrong or partially wrong, then it gets wild. Fascinating.

All eight of you picked Fed to go undefeated through to final? Boring! :p That's where I would have gone for separation...but my picks usually wind up the most unique.

I'd make fun of everyone taking Nole too but that just seems too inevitable.

This is what happens when you’re travelling and out of your normal routine - good luck everyone!

Only 1 person had Nishikori over Fed...I wasn't right about much this year in predictions, so I'll take my day 1 lead and forget the rest of the year. I'm also the only one with him not making the semis.

Meanwhile, almost everyone had the right Fed Cup winning team, but only Dave G correctly called it 3-0.

Zverev vs Cilic (Omega, Miles, and Drop have Zverev)
Anderson vs Thiem (Anderson just won, FEBravo and mysterX had Thiem)
Anderson vs Nishikori (tenedab has Anderson)



Based on tenedab putting Anderson in semis, I'd say he's in best shape so far, with the Zverev trio right behind...will we see some people with the exact same picks medal, while others miss out?

I have only roughly done the math, but I think this means Omega/Miles/Drop have the top 3 spots clinched then? There's a trio that really needs the medals ;) In fact isn't that OUR top 3?

I'm having a Murray-esque year, so it's more than welcomed!
