Congratulations to SAhero being the only player who got 7 of the top 8 correct!
- Honorable mention mat87to and StoneRose for picking Errani along with SAhero to be 1 of the top 8.
- Honorable mention JJ all the way for picking Jankovic to be 1 of the top 8.

FYI: I did additional tie breaks that were not listed on the first page.
--
I saw this on MTF and believe it will be a fun contest. Players will be picking 8 players for the Top 8 and 2 alts for tie-break purposes for position 9 and 10. I have implemented the 2 alts for different tie-break purposes than MTF.

Code:
- # of correct picks for Top 8
- least amount of deviation points
+ each ranking difference = 1 deviation pt 
+ If one guessed Serena as #1 but Serena finished as #3, one will receive 2 deviation pt
- # of correct alt picks
Deadline is the start of the first match of Auckland/Brisbane/Shenzhen qualifying match.

Example:

1. Serena
2. Sharapova
3. Azarenka
4. A.Radwanska
5. Kerber
6. Li
7. Kvitova
8. Bartoli
--
9. Petrova
10. Stosur

Results will be tallied after Sofia 2013.
