    Re: THRNY 2013 - Scoreboard

    One way or another, either I'll finally shake luvs, or she'll shake me. She kept Del Potro. I kept Haas. Until now, we've only had one player different on our teams.

    Well, that would suck. I'm sure luvs is as sick of me as I am of her. (In a loving and caring way, of course.)

    Odd week, wasn't it? Literally every team but one did better in Washington last week than in this Masters level event. It's hard to remember a week where everyone's trades were so counter-productive. The slackers we traded out did well and the superstars we traded in underachieved. Milos Raonic had the potential to be a game changer, except every single person who had him on their team traded him out for a disappointment. This was also a week where only one person had the winner of a Masters tournament on their team, and that person didn't even win the week. Rising to the top of this mess is skatingfan with 149 points, riding a the achievements of Pospisil and Davydenko. Right behind is our Nadal-owner, waylandboy-tw with 146 points. Coming in third is opoloskoffie with 112 points.

    We do have a bit of a shake-up at the top, though. waylandboy-tw's performance catapults him to the top spot at 548 points. tenedab has returned to the top three in 2nd place at 540 points. And luvs10s breaks free from the seemingly inextricable bearhug with dryrunguy for sole ownership of third place at 537 points. The top six are all extremely close to each other and Cincinatti will have a lot of scenarios that can shake things up a bit. Or Raonic could win and screw us all.

    Just to tease me for not adding Nadal (100 points) - I'm exactly 100 points out of first

    Re: THRNY 2013 - Scoreboard

    Wow, what a week. I was really hoping that at this point I would have put myself back in the top 10 after a couple of difficult weeks and I have but I didn't expect to close the gap on leaders. Oh well, won't last - too many of my team this week are all in the same portion of the draw.

    The final Masters level event of the contest is done and I think we've all learned a very important lesson about underestimating 12-time grand slam champions. None of us had Nadal this week and almost every team had Isner, so the winners were once again determined by players who didn't make the final. The winner of the week, one of only two people on the Berdych Bandwagon, is oploskoffie, running away with it with 217 points. In 2nd place is Fiercehart with 192 points, sneaking ahead of the competition with help from Grigor Dimitrov. In third place, at 188 points is consistent top-performer this contest - skatingfan.

    Going into the final week, there are plenty of players who are mathematically in contention for a top-three finish. Winston-Salem seems to have a glut of unpredictable players and anything can happen. Going into the final week, our leader is skatingfan (who is probably desparately hoping for a Sijsling title run) at 718 points. tenedab is just behind at 717 points. Still hanging in the top three after all this time is luvs10s at 708 points. Hope those final trades served you well. May the odds ever be in your favor.

    Thanks munchin - you had to say it - know Sijsling is guaranteed to continue his good run this summer and lose his first round match

    He may stumble and actually win this time against a fellow dutchman. Don't be so optimistic.

    Who needs Masters Level events? We've got Winston-Salem! The final results are in for our THRNY Fantast contest and we've got ourselves some winners. As we all expected, Jurgen Melzer struck gold in Winston-Salem and...oh, the winner wasn't on anyone's team? Again!?! Well, riding the performance of Gael Monfils, our weekly winner is Miles with 89 points, followed closely behind by lukeorion with 88. In third, we've got Omegadoom with 76 points.

    Winston-Salem also determined our winners. The scores have been incredibly tight and probably a dozen people went into the week with a chance to take gold. The gold and silver medalists had not been in any overall top threes in the first five weeks, but they charged in when it mattered the most. Winning the gold is contest veteran Miles with 741 points. Just barely behind him is oploskoffie with 739 points and a silver medal. And the pinnacle of consistency, tenedab, who spent 5 of 6 weeks in the overall top three takes a hard-earned bronze medal with 735 points.


    Thanks to all the players! I truly enjoy running this contest each year. Please thank the contest staff as well, and special thanks to AttackTheNet, who has volunteered his services which have been tremendously appreciated. Enjoy your US Open!
