    2008 AO SkanCanTest Round 6 Standings

    Well - I'm still stuck at home with the flu .. so it's awkward for me to update the database to post the round 6 standings.

    So let's talk about a few scenarios.

    Fed's loss doesn't really hurt anybody, because only 1 contestant didn't have him on their team. That poster will gain somewhat atthe expense of everyone else moving from round 5 to round 6, but not having Fed also means they haven't benefitted from his points to date. So that's not a factor.

    A Tsonga victory won't make much difference, because no one has Tonga [except as a cheerleader]. Djoko pickers will lose slightly in that case in relation to everyone else.

    The odds favour a Pova-Djoko tandem. Only hotchocolate here at TAT has that combo, and really no other weakness on the team [hc's pick outside the top ten was Youzhny, probably the best option after Tsonga, which, again, nobody picked]. So I'd say a Pova-Djoko outcome will crown hotchocolate as the victor.

    The next likely scenario is an Ana-Djoko result. Five contestants have that combo, all from TAT. In that instance, hotchocolate may lose, especially if Ana wumps Masha. The reason hc may still win is becasue the Ana-Djoko crew have ground to make up, and it may not be enough to displace hc.

    Here's who the Ana-Djoko crowd can blame in that instance:

    Moose: send your "bouquet" to Szavay
    lbk77: you were felled by Andy Murray
    renee0108: it was the other Andy, Mr. Roddick you can thank
    Jason11E: you have both Szavay and Roddick to bless [hey, maybe they'll become an item]
    kayce: well you had the two Andy's and Lindasy, to boot [literally]

    Actually, kayce represents a good example of ow fortunes can swing in the contest. Roddick, Murray, and Davenport had kayce languishing at the bottom for the first few rounds, but has moved on up to Tier 3 as of the 5th round, and will make major gains in Round 6 and likely round 7 [though that eventuality will be derailed by a Tsonga-Pova finish].

    In any event, it figures strongly to be a TATeur on top, and possibly a podium sweep.

    Neat, eh?

    Probably why I'm still out of commission is becasue I did go to rehearsal last night, and it sapped my energy and strength. Gotta build it up again today, cause the show is tomorrow night!

    hahaha... I can't really believe I have made such a jump. I just picked a bunch of my favorite players... So go Ana! Go Nole!!!
