Racquet Bracket for Acura Classic opens up on Friday! Not sure what prizes are/if there are any.

Here's the link: http://thetennischannel.com/racquetbracket/


If you're newly registering for the Racquet Bracket, it would be great if you put "TAT" in front of your screenname (i.e. TATmmmm8). It helps promote the forum, as well as makes it easier to track the results among TATeurs.

Let's make the TAT ownership of TTC contests continue!


(The Tennis Channel's loyalty to Mario Ancic is really heroic. He hasn't played any of the Racquet Bracket tournaments, and I'm fairly sure he is not partaking in this WTA tournament, but he continues to be their undying symbol )

I think, in general, most TATuers make really educated guesses. We all know quite a bit about lower ranked players who have the potential to pull off upsets. Some pan out, and some don't, so we frequently have players at the very top and the very bottom of the competition.

At Wimbledon, my picks off Ferrero and Bartoli to make the quarters were impressive, my Youzhny in the final pick didn't pan out so much. :flamed:

That won't do me much good in the summer (or really 11 months out of the year, lol).

But, I can't complain about free stuff. :)

Anyway...I can never say no to a contest! Add me to the list!

Just a reminder.

They've announced the prizes, it's Prince equipment (racquet, bag, shoes, etc., $500 worth). Second place gets a pair of binoculars.


I am worried about my bold pick of Camille Pin over Qualifier B in round 1.

Well, THANKS A LOT MMMM8!!!!! Thanks to you, within a matter of seconds we can expect Jack to start a "Qualifier B to win the Open" thread.

BTW, just 'cause me and my man are REBELS, we tell ya, REBELS, we're in the contest as nelslus and tenor777.

I picked both Sequera and Pin to lose to their Qualifier opponents. Take that Jack.

I somehow ended up with Venus beating Petrova in the final. Maybe I should research this more...

I'm in it as oohsalmon, sans TAT.

Very sorry.

Qualifier B is going down, I have Camille in the quarters or so.

In as my usual... tatone_shot07... I have Venus over Jankovic in the finals and put Hingis in the semis... go figure!

:(

(I picked Pin to lose too. I think AA is a tough qualifier draw, and I saw a couple other names in there that I could see power-serving Cammie fall to.)

I was worried I wouldn't get back in time to get my picks in.

But I'm entered and ready to play.

I sure hope that Jelena got well rested with her two weeks off...and that Tatiana learned a whole lot from her new coach in the last couple of days. Otherwise, I'm screwed.

Martina!
Two of my faves on opposite sides of the draw and my fingers are crossed for a final. I wasn't brave enough to predict it in RB, but I would love for Martina to dismember my pool.

I'm in as TATaedra1119 again.

For one minute, I had Sequera making it to the SFs. (I must be spending too much time in TAT.) After I had my good laugh, I put Krajicek in the finals losing to Venus! Let's see how that goes. ;)

Anyone have a standings or anything?

I think my bracket was officially busted today. I was a little free with my picks--must've been riding the Wimbledon high.

I HAD been doing great. NOW, I'm tied for 821st Place- with my man in 603rd Place. :woohoo: Not to mention my horrible performance so far with the Hard Road contest- think I'm just givin' up on that. AND, I probably won't be able to do the Suicide US Open pools, with being in NYC so much. (Baby nelslus wouldn't like nelslus staying on the computer to do the contests in NYC, dontchaknow.)

Looks like the unevil mmmm8 is leadin' the TAT way so far in 12th place with TTC Racquet Bracket. :overhead_clap:

BUT, I iz 14th still in the ATP fantasy contest. WOO HOO. AND I can do my team from Chicago before leaving for NYC. (And trust me, if then anyone from my ATP Fantasy team has to default, I'm gettin' to a computer to fix that. Nelslus loves baby nelslus- but nelslus DOES have his priorities.....)

I'm in the mid-800s. As long as the hundreds in front of me didn't put Tatiana in the finals, my plan is unfolding perfectly.

Same with me. But I doubt a lot of people had Dementieva or Schnyder in the finals, and I expect my Venus to win it all prediction to pan out.

TAT is a Venus loving place, with little love for Sharapova, to generalize.

It didn't fall our way. :(
