    Wow, grats mate. #5 out of about 25000 is pretty damn good. I'm at 791. Monte Carlo really screwed me with Murray, Ljubicic and Melzer going far while Verdasco, Monfils, and Almagro went out early.

    I got into the top 400 in MC, but usually suck at this so who knows???? If I ever do well at this, the apocalypse may be coming. . .

    LOL...nice...the best I ever was in the top 100 in RG(2009 the year Federer won obviously) once. Sucks they don't play RG and Wimbledon anymore. Hope to win one day on there.

    Thats cool as hell, top 5 is serious. I missed the MC drawing which probably thwarted any chance I had.

    I do. Ranked somewhere around #6000 this year, while things got better in MC (finished in top 500) :).
    You're doing great! I guess your belief in Novak helped you a lot in this years circuit:) For how long have you been playing?

    I am not doing very well despite getting right all three winners (Novak X2, Nadal).

    Yeah, I'm in it.

    I finished 2nd in Madrid last year. Turns out I knew Rafa would beat Roger on clay in the final :)

    I'm like 250 overall right now this year. Hopefully it continues to go well.

    I did it first year and came around 350th overall.

    Last year i missed a bunch of events. This year did very poorly at miami, so i aint doing so hot.

    Hityellowball- What did you get for coming in second at madrid?

    $250 worth of stuff from HEAD.

    I got a racquet, a bag and a bunch of string.

    I had a bad tourny in Monte Carlo even though I picked Nadal to win, it happens.

    nice!

    Ya, doing bad in one event wont totally kill your chances. The thing is to not miss any events and you will do OK overall. First year, when i came 350th, i missed one whole event. I was only just over 100 points away from the winner, so that could have actually made a difference!

    I wish they would bring back the grand slams though.

    I forgot to sign up but then again jhutch good job with all those upsets and weird matches at Madrid. I would be in the top 4000 had I made picks the way it is going out there.

    Damn you Almagro, Wawrinka, and a bunch of others

    My current score:

    There goes any chance I might have had, Murray about to lose. I can't believe I accidentally chose Murray to beat djokovic. Has that happened to any of y'all where you accidentally click there name and don't realize it?
