Week 1 Standings

thefreedsigner is our early leader, he was the ONLY person to pick a winner or finalist in all 3 events, and the only one to pick Panova. All 24 entries picked at least one winner or finalist, mainly due to Venus and Henin being predictable on the Gold Coast. Good luck this week:)

Rollo, you might want to make a leetle correction there. thefreedesigner is a <i> she, </i> but I'll forgive you this time. ;)

Think I'll need to go find me the full draw before making my final picks (should be sometime tomorrow I guess).

thanks once again.

I won't make THAT mistake again freed-thanks for letting me off the hook ;)

I DO wish the Aussie events would get their act together and post draws. TheAustralian Open is the best organized slam by far IMO, but the rest of the Aussie circuit is sad as far web sites go.
Both little lower tier events in New Zealand had draws up nice and early. Go Kiwis!:)

Thanks for the Sydney draw! :)
I'd like to make a deadline, but it's tough with the screwed up local board time plus Aussie time! I'll give this one an extra day because the draw was so late in coming out.

Change noted Arantxa's Number One fan:) BTW, where does that REALLY cute ASV pic of her in your avatar come from?


Canberra's draw is up in my first post.

The one with Arantxa laying on the tennis court with the balls in her pocketbook? That comes from partyzantka's webpage (go to members section at top and click on P once you get there. She isn't too far from the top. Its in the photos section and under the name PRIVARE for 2001.)

I'll take votes as long as the board time indicates it's January 6th:) Look for the Aussie Open "Race" about Thursday, when they post the draw.

Rollo! I just read that Nadia Petrova just withdrew for Hobart!! Does that mean we can change our picks because she never even played a match?!

Rollo

Sure ASV #1 fan-you can change up until the deadline. late withdrawals are the reason I allow for it, so be my guest:)
