    Congratulations, patrick!

    Patrick has won the 2011 US Open edition of the You Can't Win Jack contest! He held out with so many challengers breathing down his neck. He finished with 47 points, buoyed not only by one pick but many. Victor Hanescu helped him (and 5 others) along though, until he was eliminated in the final with Djokovic's triumph.

    Coming in second was GreenGourd with 41. He had no chance after the Round of 16. Even so, he only lost out to patrick by 6 points, showing what a low-scoring contest this ended up as.

    Jkfriedman was one win from Serena Williams away from winning the contest. As it stands, he still finished tied for third with 38 points.

    Khethux tied jkfriedman for third by virtue of Karol Beck becoming the men's Wooden Spoon winner. He retired down a set to Diego Junquiera in the first round, who lost to Juan Martin Del Potro in the second round, who lacked the energy needed to beat Gilles Simon in the third round, who couldn't win a tiebreak against John Isner in the fourth round, who failed to overcome a matchup nightmare against Andy Murray in the quarterfinals, who came in with the wrong mentality yet again against Rafael Nadal in the semifinals, who lost in yet another final to Novak Djokovic.


    Dryrunguy correctly picked the women's Wooden Spoon winner, Tamarine Tanasugarn, but it didn't help him out much in contending for the medal. She lost to Kaia Kanepi, who lost to Silvia Soler-Espinosa, who lost to Carla Suarez Navarro, who lost to Andrea Petkovic, who lost to Caroline Wozniacki, who lost to Serena Williams, who lost to Samantha Stosur.

    Thanks once again to Omegadoom for helping me out with the contest, and thanks to everyone who entered. We hope to see you all at the 2012 Australian Open in January!

    Thanks. This medal was very unexpected as normally my losers end up being winners no later than the 4th round.
