View Full Version : Week 10 of "the Race"

Mar 17th, 2002, 12:03 PM
Week 10 of "The Race"
There were 23 entries in this edition. That ties last week's record
for a non-slam event. Congrats to Daniela Hantuchova, her fans, and those who picked her:)


Only 4 of 23 had Hantuchova as a non-seed pick, and 3 of those 4(hugetennisfan,matthias, and Rollo) also had Hingis-giving them a killing with 9 points. Manuelanmaggielover was the other one to choose Hantuchova-giving her 6 points.

10 picked up 3 points for Hingis reaching the final, and 8 earned no points this week.

On to the Lipton(oops I meant the Nasdaq Open) in Key Biscayne, or is it Miami? Anyhow, please post the draw when you get it

Week 9 Standings

Saki still leads for the 6th week in a row

Rollo and Matthias vault into a tie fro 3rd and 4th.

A "Race" welcome to new point earner bigtennisfan:)


As a Tier one events, Miami offers 6 points for winners and 3 for finalists. Don't give up if you are behind. Small points add up and the season is early!

grr...I wanted Daniela to win, but thought that Grande would do better in the top half :fiery: Seles:fiery:

Mar 17th, 2002, 05:23 PM
You had such momentum too Arantxa. I really thought you were going to catch saki, but maybe thats my job;)

Mar 18th, 2002, 11:46 PM
Funny how Daniela is the flavor of the week after IW:) We may not see her seeded less than 8 in too many future events!

It will be an interesting week! :)

Blessings And Aloha
Mar 20th, 2002, 07:08 AM
Venus, Hantuchova

Mar 20th, 2002, 08:52 PM
uh oh...wheres saki??

Here comes my chance to catch her!!!!!

My picks are Venus and Daniela Hantuchova because Jennifer will crash out early and Monica can't beat Daniela, so she'll make the final for sure!

Mar 20th, 2002, 08:56 PM
What the heck: I've been stalling trying to find an opening in the draw that will mean I don't have to pick Venus Williams and Daniela Hantuchova but I can't find it.


(They're my picks btw. ;))

Mar 20th, 2002, 10:56 PM

I hope It is not too late:p

Mar 20th, 2002, 11:35 PM
You're fine and in time Lucas:) Taking entries until midnight. Sorry, Aranxta's #1 fan, but Saki sent me hers by private message as she's having problems posting. We'll have to catch her fair and square:)

Mar 20th, 2002, 11:39 PM
