Mr Disney will love this: South African wins TMC Challenge

Quote:
South African Peter Horn was pretty confident that he had the numbers right when he submitted his entry for the Tennis Masters Cup Challenge. But what he didn't count on was being the only person to correctly identify the order of the Top 8 of the Race to Shanghai after the Paris Masters.

"I'm very surprised that I was the only one among 11,000 entries who got the order right," said Peter, who lives in Cape Town. "I am over the moon to have won!"

Check out the full list of potential winners in the Masters Cup Challenge

One key to Peter's success was banking on big moves late in the season by Nikolay Davydenko, who finished No. 3, and Tommy Robredo, who finished No. 6. "I thought Davydenko and Robredo would be two guys who would finish the season strongly and Robredo also had the advantage of playing on home ground in Europe."

When it came to choosing his list, Peter listened to his head, not his heart. A big fan of Fernando Gonzalez, Peter did not pick the Chilean. "Gonzalez could have done some damage had he made Masters Cup but I didn't pick him because he was just too far off with the points... He had to make up too much ground."

And who is Peter's tip to win Masters Cup? Can Federer be beaten? "Nalbandian beat Roger last year so there's no reason it can't happen again. If Roger makes the final I think he'll win. The only chance will be if he starts slowly. But my money is still on Roger."

But hang on Peter. You selected Rafael Nadal as the tournament wnner in your Tennis Masters Cup Challenge entry. What gives? "My heart tells me that Federer will win, but had the Masters Cup Challenge come down to a tie-break to decide the overall winner, I thought the best strategy was to pick someone other that Federer, who most people would choose. And Nadal will want to take revenge on Roger for the Wimbledon final... and what better stage can there be?"
Since he predicted all the qualifiers AND their positions, and predicted Nadal as the victor, I dont know why they're even playing through the tourney. Just give Rafa the trophy now

Oh - YOU

Yeah maybe we don't do that.

It would be Rafa's best chance, though.

Good to know there are Gonzo fans in South Africa

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:
