3. Kohlschreiber
4. Petszner
5. Querrey

wrxinsc 01-26-2012 12:35 PM

^ You need to pick your first and second picks before I can select my picks.

jamesblakefan#1 01-26-2012 01:09 PM

Yeah FEDNAD, all I can say is check the links I posted which have the (un) official entry lists for most of those tourneys, save for the DC which is a bit more vague.

Djoker's website only has AO, then Dubai, then IW/Miami.
http://www.novakdjokovic.rs/tours.php?jezik=2

And Nadal's taking all of Feb off. Fed is on the entry list for Rotterdam FWIW.

And yes, Nishikori will be top 20 after AO, so he's in the 1-20 range. Everyone, use this site when choosing players as it has updated rankings for guys who may have moved up/down post AO.

wrxinsc 01-26-2012 02:41 PM

11 Nicolas Almagro
25 Juan Ignacio Chela
45 Marcos Baghdatis
77 Nicolas Mahut
90 Tobias Kamke

I'm sorry...I know this is really confusing. Kohlschreiber will be top 40 next week, so you can't take him as your 3rd choice (41-60). Petzchner will be top 60 next week, so you can't take him as your 4th choice. Again guys, refer to the live rankings, not the ones on the ATP site. I know it's confusing, but bare with me here. So your choices as of now are Federer, Raonic, and Querrey. Still need someone 41-60 and 61-80 based on next week's rankings.

Your 3rd pick has to be someone from 41-60, so Lu is invalid there. You can keep Lu or Mahut, not both, and take someone ranked 41-60.

42 Donald O Young

I guess I'll have LLodra then

Then, as for kohlschreiber, I will trade him for allejandro falla

As to the good Doctor, Mr. Blake's call on that one.

If you want Dr. Ivo instead of Llodra I will take Donald O Young. I jumped the gun on the fixing my picks - so post him up if you want the once and former evil one.

I'll add Ivo to my list :)

Actually, now the link is saying Young is ranked 40, so you have to pick someone else.

wings56 01-27-2012 12:26 PM

looks like i might not be late on this one! woohoo

I used your link to pick him so he must have been 42 then.

45 Marcos Baghdatis

Just checked it again and Young's still #40.

http://live-tennis.eu/

I know this is confusing. Just pick someone else. Also, wings56 can post his picks whenever he's ready.

I did. But what are we going to do when one picks a player based on that live ranking and then the next day or two (before everyone else picks) that player moves in our out of the range. I think that's what happened with Young.

TBH I dunno. I dunno why Young moved since he hasn't played any events between losing at the AO and now. It's kinda a fluky thing that he moved out of the 41-60 range. I'll try to come up with a better solution should this happen again.

boredone3456 01-28-2012 03:08 PM

JBF, isn't it time for you or TopFH to make your picks by now since its been a while since you posted the original thread? I only say that for the sake of those of us nearer the bottom as the tournaments start Monday...

wrxinsc 01-28-2012 03:17 PM

^ yeah I think wings56 was supposed to post their picks by 10:20 this am EST. So by rule I believe that oldschoolaccord is free to make their picks now.
