Watson: Day 3, Tsonga.
Dog day afternoon...booyeah!
Day 3: Dolgopolov
Day 3: Lopez
Dolgopolov is about to troll this league lolz.
Dropped the first set to Ramos, but he is up a break in the second.
Dolgo won. He pulled the same thing in Montreal as well: losing a set to a wildcard but coming through in 3.
Melzer up a set and a break as well. Looks like the trolls aren't coming out today.
Always forget to do my pick
Lolz, Melzer is always a troll. Most wasteful tennis player ever.
Blew a 3-1 lead in the second set...
really sorry to see this loss, but both had 107 points
so does that still qualify as trolling?

Oh yeah. I watched that match live and I even had a bit of $ on Melzer. I learned two things today. Melzer is indeed a huge troll, and I will never bet anything on him again. Even if he's playing a freaking amateur...
He should have won this match comfortably, but instead he pissed away golden opportunities that would have yielded him a commanding lead in the second set. Then he choked away two service games. Virtually every time he found himself in a favorable situation to win a game like up 40-0 or 40-15, and with break point chances, he ****ed around like an idiot and let it go to deuce... He is indeed the biggest point wasting troll I've ever seen play tennis... I made the comment to myself watching his match that he must be one of the worst players for someone to coach... I can't imagine his coach has any hair left on his head at this point.
Tsonga trolled today as well though.
I guess the trolls have indeed come out. And here I was thinking it would be a quiet day where we wouldn't see any upsets...
I'm terrible at this game.
Don't say I didn't warn ya....
Sorry, didn't see this. Look back at last year's thread if you want to see how we did it.
Got Melzered. :evil:

Day 4 Simon
RS, I hope your pick(s) after you bust out are good...I also took him today!
Kish, can we get a look at who's left in now? The spreadsheet is blank when I last pulled it up. Thanks!
simon is in trouble...and nice pick with teh dog LG!
He came back and won the second set 6-2.
Currently they're on serve in the 3rd set at 2-2.
oh my gosh ... simon lost to ebden in the decider
must admit I started doubting that the Dog still had his bite after he lost the first set ... good for him that he's into the QF ... next is nishikori ... that might be a dog fight! :twisted:
Spreadsheet is updated......Only Three people left for the championship. :lol:, TY Cilic,Melzer and Simon!
OMG Gilles lost! I'm happy for Ebden (probably should have had more faith in my fellow Aussie). I'm not choosing Simon again I lost with in the USO and now Shanghai.
QF: Deliciano Lopez - I'm taking a risk!
PFFT! That's hardly a risk. Pick Ebden!
Quarters: Austin Andy, lover of Brooklyn!
either you are or i am
never seen deliciano play with more purpose than he has been this week, kudos to him for beating TBerd yesterday ........... but since i already used him once this week, I'll have to go with the Flo for tonight: Mayer
CONGRATS! Risk was rewarded w/SDL title.
As a recent convert to SDL, is this the earliest a title has been claimed (pre-SF)?
Kish, thanks again for hosting us!
Title is only clamied when they go all the way in picks. Though s/he got the furthest.
Thanks for clarifying. Good luck, Wintutu! If u want a "pacer", I'll continue w/picks.
Pro tip, pick Nishikori.
I have a conundrum now! Do i pick Ferrer over Lopez and then leave Murray for the final or do I make sure I get some extra points in the race for London and pick Murray in the semis and then try Ferrer if he makes the final? I would normally go for Ferrer without hesitation here but he is 4-6 v Lopez who is very much in form and HUNGRY! I will ponder my decision for the evening! And thanks to everyone - it is very nice to win one of these!
Congrats Winintu....since Murray will obviously win!
are you trying to jinx me!! :twisted:
Yes I am....Yes I am. :twisted:
When you get a chance there appears to be a slight oversight in need of correction from Round 1.
Tomic dismissed Mr. Anderson after winning in the third.
Best of luck to those remaining!
Formal congrats, W.! You survived the jinx.
Thanks again, Kish. On to the Euro events.
Congrats to Wintintu, however I have an inquiry. Can I get an exemption the next tourney so that I get to pick AFTER the matches have been played?
thank you folks! nice to finish one!!
Congrats Wintintu. See you all at Valencia or Paris or whenever the next SDL event it is.
