    Bali doesn't have a round-robin this year?

    Did it last year or am I imagining that?
    A Canadian Slam winner? Inconceivable!

    Bali had a round-robin last year but they changed it to a knock-out style this year.

    Looking at Bali, I could be wrong on all four quarterfinals, right from the start. Has anyone ever actually made their predictions and still received 0 points for an event?

    When I used to score them I remember someone getting 1 point.

    I also remember someone getting all 8 quarterfinalists correct, but had no correct semifinalists.

    I accomplished such a feat at Hobart last year.

    And there've been a few more Perfect Losers.
    Looking back this gave birth to the current contest.
    Meet again we do, old foe...

    Talk about crashing with a big thud. My predicted winner and finalist will compete for the consolation match while my predicted consolation players will compete for the title.

    We do have one person pick the US to win! I'm euqally surprised only one person picked Italy to win 5-0.

    Actually, I also picked Italy to win 5-0. And I have the email confirmation that verifies it. I don't know why I'm not in the chart.

    My mistake when putting together the tables. Your prediction is in the system.

    Thanks. I was afraid I'd somehow messed up my name and email when doing the prediction. (I did men's WImbledon twice, and somehow still didn't manage to get it right.)
