    He has to make the pick by himself.

    I know I cannot make the pick himself.

    It's just a guess since he did state that his pick was going to be the opposite of yours.

    Doesn't matter. Whatever he picks last is his pick. There's no "picking the opposite of x player."

    I don't mind losing as long as Nadal wins, really.

    I don't know the statistics of it, but this is by far the worst tournament I've ever had since I started playing this game. Just throughly awful on all accounts.

    Congrats to robin7 for a great victory.

    And thanks again for the sizeable effort, Nick. Appreciated.

    Worst grand slam yes but you had a pretty bad Rome (20th place) last year and Canada (15th place).

    Rome was in the middle of a month full of tennis, so I kind of went with "meh. **** it" picks all the way. I remember not trying very hard in that one.

    Canada must've been awful too. I don't particularly remember it though.

    Winning the Grand Slam in the expense of my Favorite player, I'm kinda sad.

    It's been quite a while and I can't even remember when was my last title. Congrats to joeri888. I thought I lost it when Nadal was 4-2 up in the decider. Thanks to the organisers.

    I don't believe you! I kid I kid.

    I'm extremely tired and probably should have looked over everything before just posting but this will be corrected tomorrow as will be the Australian Open Rankings and the overall rankings.

    Sorry

    I haven't forgotten about it, it will be done preceding the next tournament. I'll address it in the second post of that thread. Thanks.

    Those are the correct rankings after the 2012 Australian Open. The change is reflected as kishnabe moved into 9th place while GasquetGOAT, Justin Side, NYKings, JayChu, & FEDERERNADAL13 all moved down one spot.

    The Overall Rankings remain the same but kish jumps into 5th in the race and Li, DC, bezs, and GG all drop down a spot.
