    Congratulations, mysterX!

    MysterX has won the 2012 Australian Open You Can't Win Jack contest! He finished with 63 points, 10 more than his closest competition, courtesy of Anna Chakvetadze. She was the women's wooden spoon winner, and he was the only contestant to pick an ultimate loser on either side. He earned 48 points from that pick, and only 15 from his other 7. Chakvetadze lost to Jelena Dokic in the first round, who lost to Marion Bartoli in the second round, who lost to Jie Zheng in the third round, who lost to Sara Errani in the fourth round, who lost to Petra Kvitova in the quarterfinals, who lost to Maria Sharapova in the semifinals, who lost to Victoria Azarenka in the final.

    Irena2 took second place with 53, and was a win from Sharapova away from first. She led the contingent of contestants who picked Irena Pavlovic and almost cashed in on it.

    Charlie02123, though out of the contest after Nadal beat Berdych in the quarterfinals, finished in third with 51.

    Vexchaps couldn't quite get the win from Nadal in the final that he needed to tie mysterX. He finished tied for fourth.

    Gilles Muller ended up as the men's wooden spoon winner. He was embarrassed by Mardy Fish, who got shocked by Alejandro Falla, who came back down to earth against Philipp Kohlschreiber, who got blasted off the court by Juan Martin Del Potro, who was stymied by Roger Federer, who failed yet again to solve his Rafael Nadal riddle, who was outlasted in the longest final by Novak Djokovic.

    Thank you to Omegadoom for helping me yet again with this contest. I always appreciate it, and I feel the contest would not be as high-quality without you.

    Thank you to every contestant for playing, and we hope to see you again at Roland Garros in May!
    Go Pack Go!

    Thanks Irena2, and thanks to Tog and the other contest staff.

    I've managed to win this contest twice, and both times I came from behind with my number 1 player winning the Wooden Spoon. Can I just say, for the record, what a terrific idea it was to introduce bonus points for getting the Wooden Spoon winner.
