    Congrats to rainingaces for the singles title, and to jbf and boredone for the doubles title.

    On a side note, I've been wondering: could I have changed my partner's pick for the final? It would have given us a chance to win I think.

    Congratz to my partner Rainingaces on a tight win over Saloni, and Topdawg.

    Figures you would win here with your best performances coming here.

    Nice job by JBF and Boredone on a good partnership towards their 2nd slam title? Congratz to Sdont and Woodrow in the finals run.

    Thanks Seffina, Jaychu, NYKings for running this event smoothly.

    Awesome job to Rainingaces on the singles win, you had a tight run to it but you toughed it out, congrats!!

    Way to go JBF on our doubles win, although you deserve all the credit you pretty much carried me all the way, so thanks! And nope Kish this is our first slam..but we did win Rome last year.

    great job on second woodrow and sdont, you two sure returned with a bang!!

    Congrats to jay and kpx for winning the 3rd place match and netting the highest overall score for the final stretch

    Awesome 4th Fednad and mtr

    And as always...thanks Seff, Jay, NYK, and Top for putting so much time into this!! As usual it was a blast!!!!!

    You were on a hot streak from day 1....sorry I let you down in dubs. The first few days can really hurt even if one of the partner is perfect. Both of us to do well in the next one :).

    If I'm reading the right column, I came in 9th? This was a fun first event. I like not being eliminated for making one wrong choice early. :p

    • Congratulations to rainingaces for his first ever TPL singles win!
    • Just as how he continued his partner's winning tradition, saloni continues her partner's runners-up tradition. Congratulations! It was very close throughout. Great tourny by the both of you.
    • Congratulations to jbf#1 and boredone on their H2H win.

    [​IMG]

    • dcdoorknob with his fourth place finish retains the top spot in the overall rankings. Even with the increased points for IW (12 to 14), his ranking is safe until the end of the Miami event. That will increase his #1 streak to 23 weeks (19 of them being consecutive).
    • kpxjam9 and kishnabe switch spots.
    • bezs drops out of the top ten and sdont jumps back in!


    • Thank you to JayChu for all his H2H work and general help.
    • Thank you to dcdoorknob, TopDawg, and NYKings for their help every day.
    • Thanks everyone for playing. We'll be back for Indian Wells which starts on Thursday, March 7th.

    You could've if he had agreed in the thread beforehand. It's not a big deal as long as there's transparency.

    congrats to rainingaces on the win, and congrats to saloni on the RU position. Good job to JBF and boredone on the doubles win.

    As always, enjoyed it. Thanks to those that run the game and glad I was able to help out a little more this time around, even if it still wasn't a ton.

    Congratulations to boredone3456 & jamesblakefan#1 for capturing their 2nd overall H2H title (1st at the grand slam level)! Well done during this entire fortnight! Amazing job well done to sdont & woodrow1029 for finishing in 2nd place (hopefully, 4th times the charm next time). Mad props goes out to FEDERERNADAL13 & mtr1 for finishing in 4th place. Huge thanks goes out to my bud kpxjam9. Although we didn't win the title, it was still good to finish in the Top 3. Let's carry this momentum into the remainder of the season :)

    RANKINGS & RACE

    I won't bother talking about the race. Wherever you and your partner ended up is where you are currently in the race.

    • By winning the title, boredone3456 & jamesblakefan#1 enters in the Top 5 (career highs for both)
    • TopDawg, kishnabe, and romeo8880 drops down one spot
    • stringertom and Tammo rounds out the Top 10
    • seffina & NYKings drops out of the Top 10 (first time NYKings will not be in the Top 10 since the inception of the game)

    For the remainder of the rankings, please click on one of the links below:


    Congrats goes out to rainingaces for a narrow victory over saloni in singles.

    Thanks to seffina, NYKings, TopDawg and dcdoorknob for all our help.

    Winners/Runner-ups: Congrats! Some really tight competitions there!

    Organizers and all participants: Thanks for running this and playing!

    My partner: thanks Tammo for putting up with my shaky start to '13. We started slowly in '12, IIRC. Let's rebound in the Cali desert!

    Sorry partner for not making a final pick, we had friends over and it slipped my mind, although it seems it wouldn't have made a difference anyway...
