Week 11 of "The Race"

There were 20 entries in this edition. Congrats to Serena Willaims and her fans:)


Highlights:

Sereana got O, zip, nada, no votes. She wrecked all the hopes of Hingis(picked by a couple), Venus(the Race favorite) and then finally Capriati. The most popular non-seed pic, Hantuchova, flamed out early on.


Week 10 Standings

Saki still leads for the 7th week in a row.
The 4 who picked Capriati earned 3 points.
Rollo moved into 3rd over Blessings and Aloha.

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

Next up are Sarasota and Oporto, where winners will earn 2 points, finalists 1 point. I'll take entries until midnight on Monday, board time:)

Sarasota's:

Sarasota has added Sanchez-Vicario, making it a lower tiered event with winners of all 4 grands slams! Sanchez has won the French and US, Pierce the French and Auusie, Majoli the French, and Martinez Wimbledon.

not many points this week!

Rollo

True Matthias, but every point counts;)
Since it's a slow period, this is what events are worth.

Slams Winner 40 points
Finalist 20
Semis 10 each
Quarters 5 each


The year-ending WTA finalse will count as a slam.

Tier 1's 6 points to winner, 3 to finalist.
Tier 2's 4 points winner, 2 to finalist
Tiers 3-5. 2 points winner, 1 to finalist.

Fed cup will count as a tier 2-all entries are due before first round, which is in April.

Since we still have 3 slams and the WTA finals, anyone can still win! :bounce:


I'm extending entries til midnight Tuesday, as Sarasota's draw isn't out until Monday.

Hi Rollo... :wavey:

I love your game and you're doing a great job... but I'm kind of busy, so I'd like to retire from your game.

Thanks for your fantastic game Rollo! :kiss:

Rollo
Apr 2nd, 2002, 07:35 AM
Is that a temporary retire or a permanent retire Williams Rulez? If you are doing so well I'd hate to see you be gone for good:sad:
I understand about being busy-that's why i try to keep it simple.
You can always send me pics in advance by private message if you like. If you know , for example, that Serena is playing the Family Circle then I'll gladly take entries in advance:) JonBcn has done this as he will gone a few weeks. I can give you committments for future events if you like.

I'll keep your points up(you were doing so well) if you decide to "come back".

Thanks for your thanks Rulez and good luck to your favs:wavey:

Hope you enjoyed your time away Arantxa:) If you know you will be away from the board I always take entries in advance. There are no draws of course, but but you can still pick up points that way. JonBcn sent his picks to me by private message, so don't let a vacation stand in your way:)

PS-I won't gain on you unless Pierce pulls through. Conchi already lost:(

Aranxta#1fan - I wouldn't worry about it. 3 of my 4 picks have lost already...

I know, but I forgot about it until browsing back a few days. I know I'm gonna be away from the second week in Wimbledon to the end of July (Stanford or San Diego I think...). DON'T LET ME FORGET ABOUT SENDING IN PICKS!!!

Rollo
Apr 5th, 2002, 05:44 AM
Both of your Sarasota picks look good-Dokic must be VERY healthy to do in Smashnova 6-1 6-0 or some score like that. Myskina's been doing well too. I'm still pinning my hopes on Sucha at Porto;)
