Thank you TW and Jason. Really going to be an interesting one this Aussie. A lot of quirks and upsests due to lack of mathplay plus new fitness...and the dark horse who allways come at the aussie.

Nadalfan4life- if u aint over 18...ask a Sibling or guardian that is over 18 to do it for you!

Well I feel really good about the men's draw, at least in terms of picking the winner, I mean there's really only 2 choices, so you pretty much have a 50-50 shot at picking the AO Champion.

However, the women's draw is going to be utterly ridiculous. It's already hard enough to pick a bracket that isn't full of red, now there's no real clear cut favorite out there.

can you register/enter without being 18 just for fun and NOT for the prize?

Cause if so, I didn't realize you had to be 18 to register. I figured you would for the prize, but I don't really care about that right now

Any chance you guys can post the link to the actual group, because I can't figure out how to make picks for them. I can only make picks for the main draw.

Edit - Thanks TW, I actually figured it out, but it was a bit frustrating.


Thumbs Up for the speedy reply :P

Sure. You can do that as long as you realize you will not be eligible for the grand prize.

I was thinking the same thing. He has a decent chance of losing to djokovic too so even if he gets through that chain he might only hurt our draws for another 3 rounds. :)

I will definitely be picking dolgo over gulbis. :)

That is the Tennis Channel Draw...

TW has 2 draws(Racquet and Shoe) which for all around the world.
Tennis Channel has 2 Draws (500 Wilson SPorting Dollars) which is the US only.

If you are in America you get a double chance....pick Federer for one and Nadal for the other!

After clicking on the Tennis Warehouse draw there should be something on the side saying tennis channel and click on that.

It isn't complicated!

I'm a little sad that even now that the draw is out, they still have "Qualifier A" and "Qualifier B" and so on in that draw. Ah well, I can look up who's where. So I can bet against Donald Young whoever he's playing ;

He plays Marin Cilic in the first round.

Of all the matches that I'm really looking forward to and that have me on the edge of my seat, none of them are that match. Should be straightforward.

Where can we see the standings for the tenniswarehouse competition? All I can find is the standings for the tennis channel's contest.

It was a bit unclear what the Tennis Channel bracket was en what the Tennis Warehouse bracket was. (Even though I consider myself internet-proficient enough,) I think I ended up filling in the Tennis Channel's for the ATP, and TW's for the WTA...

Welp my bracket is just about trashed.

Yeah I picked some upsets that didn't pan out in the men's bracket. Tippy over Verdasco really hurt me because he totally had that match won... :(

My only real chance on the women's side is if Zvonareva wins the whole thing. I really don't know why I picked her, but at least she's still alive in the draw.

I was doing well in both draws for a while. Needed Vera Z to upset Clisters and the big 2 to make it to the finals on the mens side. Oh well....maybe next time.

Thanks for putting this out there it has been fun to follow along and compete with friends on their pics.

I needed Federer to win the semi and Final to win the US open one....but this one...I never expected a Morrovic final. Whoever got that right...hand off to you....99 percent of population won't pick that!
