    2018 TSIP: FINAL Scoreboard

    The lead-in clay tournaments to Roland Garros are now complete, and the 2018 Slide Into Paris is complete as well. For week 7, the high scorers were a tie between ptmcmahon and .mysterX, and ponchi101 finishing third. For pt, this was a big deal. For mysterX and ponchi, not so much.

    In the final standings, we can now identify our medalists.

    In first place is tenedab. tenedab lurked just below the leaders in the early rounds, slipped into third in week 4, took the lead for good in week 5, and extended the lead in the last two weeks of the contest. This was a very impressive performance. Congratulations on your victory.

    In second place is patrick, who worked his way into contention with a strong performance in week 5, then vaulted into second in week 6 and held from there. Great performance in the high point tournaments in Madrid and Rome.

    In third place, ptmcmahon made it into a medal position by virtue of a week-winning performance in the final week of the contest. pt was in 10th place after week 4, but moved up in each of the final three weeks, edging out texasniteowl.

    Thanks to everyone who played, and to dave g who helped run the contest. We also got help from waylandboy-tw and dryrunguy, so thanks for them too.

    Final scoreboard is below. Best of luck to everyone in the RG contests.

    And for 20/20 hindsight, if you had managed to put together the following All-Star team, and refrained from making disastrous trades, you would have won the contest with 1082 points (tenedab had 1006). And the team would have been legal, only costing 144 points. There are a few names on this list who you don't ordinarily think of as clay-courters (Kvitova, Giorgi, Krystina Pliskova), but they came through this year.

    Kvitova, 156
    Svitolina, 119
    Halep, 107
    Bertens, 160
    Mertens, 107
    Kontaveit, 83
    Sharapova, 71
    Arruabarrena-V, 53
    Giorgi, 46
    Larsson, 68
    Pliskova Kr, 60
    Hercog, 52

    Well darn. I was hoping to finish above the bottom 3, but ponchi had to go and make a comeback in the last 2 weeks. I'll lower my expectations next time.

    Congrats to the winners!

    Larsson's week 6 total beat my combined C team total for the whole contest, as well as my D team total minus that one score for her

    Thanks mysterX, DaveG, Wayland-boy and dry. Congrats to tenedab and my fellow patrick...we seem to do well in the same contests.

    Oh and for single handedly pulling out the medal for me...Johanna deserves to be honored

    With your goal being to finish out of the bottom 3, you really should have blamed me for not entering. I always am so pathetic at that, and knowing there would be weeks when I would not be able to think about it, I didn't enter. If I had, you would surely have accomplished your goal.
