Thanks to *Jean* for a winning partnership.

Congratulations to AdderA216/jcreback. We had all the luck that was going here, so better luck next time.

Well done to ANDRE AGASSI and Dexter in the singles.

And a big thank you to ibreak4coffee for managing. A great tournament made more interesting by reliable live scoring (apart from the final!)

Code:
3. PTS 1 (1-20 in all first round matches)

Both players have incorrect winner in the PTS match: +2 points for every set predicted for the winner

Correct order of sets for:

1 set – 1 point
2 sets – 4 points
3 sets – 7 points
4 sets – 10 points
5 sets – 13 points

Correct scoreline for:

1 set – 3 points
2 sets – 6 points
3 sets – 9 points
4 sets – 12 points
5 sets – 15 points
If you both pick the winner - as was the case here - then it comes down to guessing the correct scoreline. Picking the same score for each set is a little riskier as then unless that comes up the other guy has more chances to get a correct scoreline if he splits his picks. In your case, both you and your partner picked 6-4 for the four winning sets. That's definitely giving an advantage to your opponent IMO

According to the challenger thread on MTF, Nishikori won 6-3 7-6, so *Jean* and I win with 2 correct set scores.

I'm not celebrating yet though, because MTF has been wrong before (surely not - yes really)
I'm going to wait until they update the official draw on the ATP site since this is based on someone saying "his friends told him" but if this is the case, you and *Jean* do win 6-0 on PTS

Does it go to CB if Kendrick wins? I really have no idea how points exactly works.
You guys each have Kendrick winning a set 6-4 so that's a wash. It would depend on whether Nishikori wins a set and by what score. If Kendrick wins though and no one picked a score set correctly, then yes it goes to CB and you and Adder win in that event.

Adder and jcreback are miles ahead on CB, so they are clearly the better team and deserve to win.

Fortunately for us, the better team doesn't always win, so we are in with a shout.

C'mon Kendrick, take the first set!

No diffs in singles so congratulations to ANDRE AGASSI on winning the Binghamton singles championship

The doubles final will go down to the wire - same winners and SR's so I've posted the PTS. Goldenoldie and *Jean* better hope Nishikori doesn't win a set 6-4!

So Guccione did withdraw before the match so only the Nishikori-Bogomolov Jr. match can count for TT purposes.
