    A fun game where you score points for predicting the match results in the tennis tournaments. You pick the winners at the beginning of the tournament.

    This takes as little as 10 minutes per bracket to play

    Novak wins? I did my own wishful thinking and had Fed winning! That bottom quarter is treacherous though... Novak probably has the toughest path though out of the lot of them. Murray has a cakewalk in the top half.

    For some time I have been wondering if the draws are fixed! Smoke and mirrors and a few bits of string I think. It's a dreadful draw but we will see. I wonder if Murray's bum is recovered? His account of shingles in the Times came into the too much info category!!

    On the WTA side would love to see Pliskova do it!

    Done. It is a bit problematic as they not filled the qualifiers yet, so I checked the qual. draw and I hope that they respect the order when they put qual#1 and so on...

    There still 16 hours remaining to do the ATP bracket, the WTA one has closed.

    Wow, I'm finding some of these early rounds tough to pick. And I haven't even gotten to the Quarter of Death yet! :D

    The result of this 'brutal' draw is due to how many very good players have a low ranking like Rafa, Roger, Delpo, Kyrgios, Verdasco and others and usually the #1 tournament by tournament skips the worst part

    I went back and forth on all of my picks for the matches so far decided and I don't think I got a single one right! :banghead:

    I went back on my picks and I can't believe that I had Tomic winning a couple of matches, my question is in what I was thinking to do that???:cuckoo:

    I had Tomic wiining one and not even that he got. I missed other two that I would got right -- but I confused Lorenzi for Bolelli and Kamke for Haase :facepalm:

    Wow, I did terrible. I tried to ignore rankings but it seems almost every match was won by the higher ranked player.

    Well, I said before that those first rounds were hard to call. The one who seemed to be the in-form player didn't necessarily win.
