    Is that allowed? Benneteau has already won his match while Paire match is in progress still!

    I can allow the Paire pick, but not the Benneteau pick.

    joeri888, if Paire wins his first round match, you must change your R16 pick

    Granola Bar's singles game is trashed. He shouldn't be trusted to even get out of the first rounds now. Doubles is his bag.

    Well I definitely didn't know that random 500 events are being used now. :?

    Though it looks like there was massive bloodshed day 1 anyways. :)

    Well the timing couldn't have been better to miss Benneteau's pick in the second round.

    I had Fed for the final, but I still have all the other choices left, so this didn't hurt anything.

    Haha. Appreciate that.

    Two finals in a row. This is addicting, haha. I do admit picking 500 events is a LOT harder to do than picking in grand slams. Takes a little more science.

    2013 ATP SUDDEN DEATH LEAGUE ROTTERDAM RESULTS
    [​IMG]

    Congratulations to Onehandedbackhand for capturing his(?) first ATP SDL title! Well done.

    Congrats to ark_28 and Rexking for making it to the final day.

    No major changes to the Top 10 except jamesblakefan#1 dropping down to #4. In the race, Onehandedbackhand and Rexking moves up to the Top 10.

    Major thanks goes out to TopDawg and CDNguy87 for their contributions to this week. In fact, they deserve all the credit for running this event. My apologizes for being completely absent. I'll be back to run the Memphis, Dubai, Acapulco, Indian Wells and Miami events.

    The Memphis thread is up. If you have not joined yet, click here to sign up.

    Hope to see you all there.
