No I'm afraid you can't as doubles is just your singles scores added together - also it would create extra work for the organisers to keep separate lists for doubles and singles :)

Scythe, if your TB prediction was the same as your predict-the-score prediction, then you had the better prediction. Game on!

scythe19pro
03-30-2006, 09:11 AM
No no no no... :devil:

Time for some mess-with-scythe's-head, trash-talking gamesmanship I think!!!

How about I tell you my TB prediction scythe? Nah I don't think I will. It's too embarassingly bad. So, I think you've won scythe. Especially as Federer and Roddick are dead certs, aren't they??? ;) :p

Edit: I'm terrible at gamesmanship! I'm not even sure what I'm trying to coerce you into predicting!

Edit2: Just thinking out loud here. I suppose if one of us knew we had the better TB, then that person would prob go for Roddick (because he's the fav) and the other guy would just want to make sure he was going for the other guy (i.e. Ferrer) in order to give himself any chance of winning outright. Such a crucial situation! I think I'm over-analysing!

I know :sad: But the important thing is that I'm still in top 10 and is such an honor to be part of the elite top players like greatkingrat, Labamba, el guero,... :)

You've had a great couple of tournaments as well - final at IW, SF at Miami. You should be very proud :)

Yes I've done well recently. :) Too bad I wasn't in such a great form when the Davis Cup R1 was played. My partner and I would have gotten Romania through the quarter finals. :p

I don't know - you've never played on clay before so I don't know how good you are. You've had one good indoor tournament in Rotterdam and a good tournament in Miami on a slow hardcourt. Depends who plays in Valencia - if some of the clay court experts such as invu2day, Rosie, Sol Apollo and keqtqiadv play there it will be tough.

:o She's got a good chance of being seeded as she'll be ranked round #14 with 2 tournaments going on that week - although I imagine Valencia will be more popular than Houston
