    Women's Final AO Suicide Pool - Winners

    Unfortunately no-one can beat the draw this year but we still have three players who managed to get as far as the Final before running out of picks.

    Big Congratulations go to:

    Hummingbird
    mck25
    vexchaps



    To take part in the prize offered by SI's Jon Wertheim's you must complete the tiebreak questions.

    1) Guess the number of games played in the Women's final (without going over - if you all go over, then the closest).

    2) Number of Aces served by the winner of the Women's title (without going over - if you all go over, then the closest).


    PM your answers to dryrunguy before 7.30PM Saturday 28th in Australia, that's 3.30AM EST Saturday in the US. (the start time of the Women's final)

    Good luck and thanks for playing.

    Congradulations to the winners.
    Especially since you picked Azarenka when most of us picked Clisters. Kudos for sticking with your pick in opposition to the majority of the other pickers. Well Done!

    Good job, SP winners! Savor your victory for me.

    This is the third time I've been within a hair of winning, only to have the prize denied. 2008 Wimby, Nadal d. Federer 9-7 in the 5th: I chose Federer. 2010 Wimby, Kvitova d. Kanepi 8-6 in the 3rd (saving multiple match points): a Kanepi win would have knocked out the remaining players allowing me to tie for first. And then last night, Kim had her chances but squandered them. So close and yet so far....

    Carlitos has come within a hair of winning. I have come within a warehouse of wigs and a troupe of chimpanzees of winning, if that is the case.
    Congrats to the winners. Truly amazing, seeing how this AO panned out.
    Face it. It's the apocalypse.

    I've only received one prediction so far.

    Oh, don't know how I survived that draw! I was predicting a Li/Kvitova final.

    Dryrunguy, I *think* I have sent you a PM.
