We ended up with 178 entrants (including 9 from MTF), our equal 2nd biggest AMS pick 'em so far, which is amazing given how short the entry window was and that Tennisopolis (the team that had over 100 entrants for the USO) seem to have collectively gone to sleep again. Only Cincy had a bigger entry for an AMS pick 'em and Miami 2008 had the same number of entrants as we've got this time.
All of the usual detailed results pages, updated to the end of Madrid AMS day 1, can now be accessed from http://www.britishtennis.net/Competitions.html
- intra-day updates will start from tomorrow, Monday.
Those fighting for high positions in the overall individual and team rankings, where it's very tight at the top, have got just this event and the Paris AMS pick 'em in two weeks' time to amass more ranking points before the end of the year.
The following players have been picked as winners by at least one entrant - Rafa shades 'most popular winner pick' by the narrowest of margins!
Gulbis, Pics, Flake, Potty and the Undertaker also figure among finalist picks.
Indeed, with so many strong players and hard to pick matches in this tournament (e.g. for one of the QF spots, 37% of us have gone for Flake, 37% for the Undertaker, 19% for Dinara's lower-ranked brother, 6% for Simon and 2% for Ee-gor), there is everything to play for and it should be a very exciting week!
Good luck and have fun! :-)
