    Yeah, for the regular competition, you need to make 2 picks from the first 2 days.

    For the Top 8 bonus, it's only 1 pick for every 2 days of the RR, so your DelPo pick is sufficient for that.

    The bonus competition is only for those who finished in the Top 8 in the Race (see the second post of the thread). TopDawg finished just outside the Top 8, so he might be able to enter the bonus competition only if a couple of people ranked above him don't make picks.

    I've voted 'no' - 2 reasons:
    1) selfish- the Paris bloodbath happening just before YEC, had Romeo won only affected my chance of qualification. Had he obtained the 1000 points I would have been knocked down to 9th. Whilst this would have been disappointing it wouldnt have detracted from the incredible feat Romeo would have achieved. So I could live with that. I think to have played all year and then be robbed of a place because a second choice was available to everyone knocked out would have been quite depressing. And undermine making the effort to play every tournament- the only reason I qualified as my results were very varied. In fact I would suggest, as I did earlier in the year, that those players who take the time to play x amount of tournaments get bonus points.
    2) Paris was so dramatic that it became a talking point and therefore more interesting. Although I had a vested interest, I'm sure many of us were following Romeo's progress with a certain fascination.
    Feel free to shoot me down in flames.

    To clarify, though, if my pick from today doesn't win, I'm out for tomorrow, right?

    Is there a league file on the WTF? If so, can you post a link? Thanks!

    I made a pick of Del Potro and Wawrinka (also Wawa for Top 8). Am I then "off" til Wednesday?

    My bad, forgot to include the link. Here it is (also added to the OP).

    League File


    Yes, anyone who made 2 picks on Monday doesn't need to make one on Tuesday. Assuming the WTF schedule is back to normal (with Group A playing both matches Wednesday, Group B playing both matches Thursday, etc.), starting Wednesday we'll go back to the original plan of 1 pick per day.

    LOL Gasquet wins the 1st set. Are we in for the 2nd straight mass exodus at the hands of a Frenchman?

    Ico still hasn't made his Top 8 bonus pick.

    If he doesn't make it by the start of the Fed/Djoker match, Locotus will officially take the final spot in the Top 8 competitition, with Nadal as his RR1 pick.

    The WTF schedule is back to normal for Wednesday. Therefore, from this point forward, it will be back to the mandatory one pick per day.

    You need to pick from one of these matches for Wednesday:


    Day 3 OOP: Wednesday

    [1] R Nadal (ESP) vs. [7] S Wawrinka (SUI)
    [3] D Ferrer (ESP) vs. [5] T Berdych (CZE)
