Tonylovestennis decided to have an All-American team.
I responded that he was doomed from the men's side; but could do fine with the ladies.. Turned out to be true. :)

Del Po what happened?.. you win the first set. I leave, and come back thinking you are finishing off Nadal...#ed_op#br#ed_cl#And what? a bagel... Are you spraying the court with the fuzzy yellow round stuff? :)#ed_op#br#ed_cl#Oh well, I got Nadal for my Skan so... It's alright.. A bit disappointed.

I can only win this contest if Sloane wins and Rafa loses. If Keys wins, then I'm done. If both Rafa and Sloane win, then CCR is the winner from the 6th spot.

Aren't the medals premature? rex himself said that if both Sloan and Rafa win then Cross Court Rally takes the SKAN. Rafa is the favourite tomorrow, so why write off CCR? Was rex wromg?

Hmmm ... no I just checked and CCR can't make up the difference, since rex also has Rafa and the differential is too great to be overcome by their respective seeding.

I think that CCR can only make up 18 pt (if nadal wins with triple bagel); Rex is the Skan winner!!
Well done!!

Didn't think I'd win it, especially after Roger was dismissed in the qtrs and anticipating a Rafa loss to JMDP and a Venus win over Sloane. Not vested as much in the Skan as I am in the PGame. Yet......going to have to learn the point calculations here, for I did think that CCR would leap ahead of me based on the positions of Nadal and Sloane on his team in the end. Ended up winning by 69 points after only leading CCR by 44 points after Roger's loss in the qtrs and he having 3 players left on his team to my 2........#ed_op#img src="/board/richedit/smileys/Thinking/3.gif"#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#Looking forward to the AO where I'll know who the men will be on my team, provided that they are not in the same half of the draw.

It should be in a couple of days... We always wait a few days to see if no one complains about a wrong score. Then we add the tournament to the overall ranking. Once we do that, no change can be made to it.
