    Congrats Fatboy, AOSP Women's Winner!

    And following the semi-finals, one person claims bragging rights as champion of TAT's 7th Annual Australian Open Women's Suicide Pool.

    CONGRATS FATBOY! This was without a doubt one of the most difficult Slams to win, and the fact that you are the only player from over 350 who began the game last week to survive through the semi-final is a testament to smart picking over the last 11 days.

    Congrats also to Garp6, who was the only other player to make it to the semis.

    Fatboy will have a nice shiny medal added under his name/avatar in the next few days - and Fatboy also wins a framed 8x10 print compliments of our sister site TennisPhotographs.com. We'll be in contact in the next couple of days to discuss your prize. In the meantime, you can get details at this post - http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum...042#post633042

    Also, thank you for everyone who participated in this year's game - this was a real blast, and we greatly enjoyed bringing it to you. And big thanks to Beau and Morct for all their work in making this Pool as fantastic as it was.

    Definitely on of the toughest SP I have played. I actually thought we would be done by the fourth round. That Fatboy made it to the Semis is impressive.
    Congrats!

    Very awesome. This was a particularly tough tournament (despite the top three seeds making the semis) and you were able to outmaneuver and outlast! (Though the draw claimed 300-odd victims, lol).
    I'll miss you!

    wow, thanks

    i would like to thanks jovanovski, peng and radwanska, and sharapova too, for getting me through some of the trickier rounds

    it was a great SP, never thought i would make it this far ...

    great fight right to the end, danutz and garp6.

    the men's SP looks equally challenging, with 2 winners today ...

    Wow. The last one standing out of 350.

    Congratulations!

    And even tho' I didn't get to play, I did get to follow the threads and I know the SP is a LOT of work so thanks to Moose, Morct and beau for all of their hard work! Too bad that work doesn't translate into a nice shiney medal for you guys!

    Re: Congrats Fatboy, AOSP Women's Winner!

    Major congrats.

    Once I saw Kim pounding that ball right from the start, I knew you would be the winner.

    Well done!
