    As if I needed an invitation!

    Making the updated thread is always my goal. I've now made 6 threads in my 10 SPs (and could double dip for the first time this tournament if I manage to survive a bit more on the women's side. Flavia could help my cause a lot )

    I'm now 17-0 in men's RGSPs (interestingly having taken 17 different players so far), and 24-1 in RGSPs in total. My only loss at the French was when Alona BondarenKO'ed me, but since we're practically dating now, all is forgiven.

    I think the attrition rate is going to drop significantly over the next few days. Things should get significantly easier for a couple days...

    I really could go on and on about me... But I am sure no one is appreciating this .
    It's hard out here for a Zuz.

    Just remembered how many points I have coming off in the overall SP rankings. Think I was about 5th, this may drop me off the listed players totally!
    A Canadian Slam winner? Inconceivable!

    Allez! First updated thread for me, and since I had already used Almagro, I had to make a lucky pick today (Gulbis) that worked out. By far my best SP.

    You're not alone. I also beat the draw at RG last year and have done little else of note in the other SPs since then. I'm about to drop like a stone from the Top 5 overall rankings. *sigh* Damn you Soderling.

    9 Gonzalez pickers safe, 1 Ginepri picker out.

    Stayin' alive .

    The Fed picker looking ok so far...and Ljubcic hasn't lost a game yet!

    Thank goodness Ferrer came back today. I'd hate to have to rely on Stepanek to make the semis.
