Thats a dumb rule of who posts it first. Just because I was asleep I am punished. Maybe I should just stay on WTAWorld all night long

First of all, only correct picks are used for the tiebreak.

The order for the tiebreak:

1. Who "wins" the week.
2. Who's picks lost the least games.
3. Who's picks lost the least sets.
4. Who picked first for the final.

This includes correct picks only - ie, only Shaughnessy for all four of you. Obviously, you are all tied with the pick, total games lost an total sets lost. Incorrect picks are ignored.

Well, it's only used in extreme cases -- can you think of a better solution if everything else is equal (Same pick, same total games lost, same total sets lost)? It's very, very rare something like this happens.

As far as 416_man told me, what i did was correct and he is the owner of this game. You are suppost to count lost games even when your pick is wrong.
