I like pretty much everyone left in this. So it's tough. Really tough.
vs. (33) Sham Kay - Sham is invaluable to this forum, but trips is top dawg in this contest for a reason.
(16) Maria_V vs. (17) Sunset of Age
- Very nice to me in RF sub-forum. Unfortunately not very familiar with Maria's work.
(8) Sonja1989 vs. (25) Mateya - I abstain. Two of my favourite posters here. I like Granollers and Seppi about equally too.
(9) Corey Feldman
vs. (24) Litotes - Markus is truly great, and he's only been here half a year, but Feldman deserves another throw of the dice.
vs. (29) tennizen - Kat's lovely. Not very familiar with tennizen, regrettably.
(13) Nole Rules vs. (20) GSMNadal
- I feel pressurised to not abstain too much. This was just a 50/50 choice. Both great posters.
vs. (28) Mark Lenders - My mate Manuel will be back as a top ten seed in his first full year, in 2013. H=L is too good, this time.
(12) Johnny Groove
vs. (21) mimi - I always find myself smiling at how sweet Mimi is, but JG is the more active member. He gets my vote here.
(63) Naudio Spanlatine vs. (31) IncrediBale
- So tough. Dee is a popular choice, and Dom is a big mate, so I have to vote for him here. Sorry.
(15) 156mphserve vs. (18) arm
- Kind of feel obliged to vote for Raq here, too,
vs. (39) masterclass - Masterclass is a quality analyst, but viruzzz is more fun and deserves to go further in the competition.
(10) leng jai vs. (23) Chirag
- It's a friend vote again. I know it's pretty pitiful, but it's the only way I can separate them sometimes.
(3) Nole Fan
vs. (30) Voo de Mar. - Kind of feel there's only one winner here, despite Voo's consistent great work with the stats.
(14) Orka_n vs. (19) Deathless Mortal
- Tough one, but DM and I get in a bit better I think. Orka's a great poster, nonetheless.
(6) The Bulldog vs. (27) Eden - Anyone who shares a name with George Osborne has no business being in the latter stages of a popularity contest. Doris is lovely, though I'm not sure if she realises whether she's in this competition.
(11) Pirata vs. (22) BroTree123
- Going fit the one I've communicated with more.
