There was talk of Monfils injury during the DC last week, so I was pretty certain he wouldn't make the SFs. That opened up the draw pretty nicely for Harrison. Also, Roddick hasn't been that good for a while now (and I had a good feeling about Istomin ). And Raonic and Benneteau were fairly obvious.
Anyways, got a bit lucky as well, I guess, but this has certainly put me in a good position to win this whole thing. Pretty nice start to the Spring Streak as well.
Re: FITD U.S. Spring Streak (1/5) - San Jose - QF update - TheFearlessOne takes the
only half of us managed to get 2/4, and only 4 of us got at least 3. You were the only one with all 4 so it wasn't that obvious:yeah:
Monfils was injured but he was playing an exho, so I kind of figured he'd play, and he can beat most of the players in his section playing at 50%. Harrison was coming back from Switzerland and clay so tough adjusting, that was a great pick.
Raonic was coming in with an injury and he wasn't even sure to play so I was worried about picking him to go far. Turns out his injury was just a misread MRI.
Benneteau and Stepanek were 50/50 imo. Not a totally obvious pick
Istomin was in a section with 6 americans, so it was common sense that he would be the one to come through:haha:
but yeah Istomin was a bit of a gut pick for me too, like you said Roddick has been awful, Young, Russell, and Querrey all not great, and Sock, and Kudla were probably too inexperianced.
anytime you're the only person to get 4/4 you deserve a :worship:
I'm torn tomorrow assuming Benneteau wins today. I want Milos to win obviously(see signature:lol, but if he loses to Benneteau then I win this
