No one pick a Williams sister to win the tournament !?

6 of 9 took Sharapova to win it.

Early exit: 5 of 9 took Schiavone.

Sleeper: 3 of 9 took Hantuchova,
4 of 9 Venus Williams.

(Two of nine took Nadal as early exit,
that's very surprising...)

And :rolls: @ the last guy picking Wozniacki :happy:

Surprising to me that nobody picked Serena. I know it's her 2nd tournament back and everything, but still. I guess they are all just playing safe. :confused:

Drysdale, McEnroe and Shriver. :weirdo: Rafa and Nole for early exits? :lol: And Tandon - pick Rafa to win, but Raonic as a Sleeper (would play Rafa in 3R). Do these people even look at the draws? :o


Oh, women's tennis. Meh. They mailed it in - Sharapova playing well, Hantuchova an obvious sleeper pick w/out her injury, Fran and Serena not expected to do much. :shrug:

I think they do those picks before the draw was released.
But as tennis experts they should know you can't give picks before the draw is released.

It says on the page that the picks are based on the draw. :shrug:
