    We are in @ for the 3rd in the series, this being the 2009 Rome Master’s Series event :D

    The 2009 Miami 1000 Master’s Series prediction league was won by Shadows 18 points clear of me in second place... as was the 2009 Rome Master's one ...

    The link to both those ^previous tournaments are each here...

    http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=254587 - Monte Carlo

    Points Scoring Rules: (MUST READ)
    If you predict the correct winner but the wrong score in sets, you'll get two points. However, if you also nail the score line in sets, (ie, Nadal beats Murray 2 set to love) you’ll get five points.

    New Additional Points Scoring Rules! (MUST READ)
    As a slight change from the previous competition, each predictor can pick the winner and runner up of the tournament (before approximately a day before the FIRST ROUND MATCH)

    Come the conclusion of the tournament – ten points will be given to each predictor that predicts BOTH the correct winner and runner up and five points for the one or the other.

    If you grasp a sudden urge to change one or more predictions that you may already have posted, please make a new post, so I am aware of the time it was posted and can validate that the prediction was made before the respective match / matches. (Editing posts makes matters complicated)

    IN as always and I'll set the goal of finishing second (for now). Always improve, no? (Although I went backwards from Miami to Monte Carlo.)

    Since the options as listed by the quote (All men are not slimy warthogs. Some men are silly giraffes, some woebegone puppies, some insecure frogs. But if one is not careful, those slimy warthogs can ruin it for all the others) are silly giraffes, woebegone puppies, insecure frogs, and slimy oscarwarthogs, I say you're a silly giraffe. If we were to extend the collection, I think you're a lucky horse. :)

    18 competitors, by the far the biggest entry list we've had, should be interesting to see if any of the new comers have anything brilliant in them to annoy the top 3 :D

    Love the avatar. I do have some sillier ones for you. : ).

    So I'm going to go with

    Rafa as the winner
    Roger as the Runner Up. (I refuse to give up on him.)
    ----------------------------------------------------
    THERE ARE MATCHES ON SUNDAY. Important ones.
    Sunday's Matches:

    • Fabio Fognini vs Feliciano Lopez Lopez in 2
    • Andreas Seppi vs Novak Djokovic Djokovic in 2
    • Simone Bolelli vs Andy Murray Murray in 2
    • Potito Starace vs Roger Federer Federer in 2
    • Daniele Bracciali vs Tommy Robredo Robredo in 2
    • Filippo Volandri vs Marat Safin Safin in 2
    • Flavio Cipolla vs Juan Martin Del Potro Del Potro in 2

    So I'm picking two setters only apparently. I see maybe Bolelli and Fognini matches going to three if they feel like it, but they probably don't.
