Rollo, hi!
:)

Are the two picks separate?
I mean, do we get points from "any" of the two?
In this case, we're "obliged" to give sixteen different names, aren't we?

And, secondly, do we have any extra time due to Serena situation?
You know, should she withdraw, the whole draw might change...

Let's hope Serena will be in, of course!!!
:)))

Yes Way, you get points from either list, so repeating a name only shortchanges yourself .

The deadline remains 11pm Sunday board time, though I can change that if someone can tell me what time OZ gets underway. The best I can do with the "Serena" factor is say to weigh that in your picks. If she withdraws and a whole draw is REMADE, then I'll give everyone extra time, but I don't see that happening. I'm sure they will give her a Tuesday start and an extra day-too late to be changing the draw for them or us!

PS. I'll update standings when i know the results of all the finals
in an hour or so:)

Week 2 Standings

Blessings and aloha has snatched the early lead from thefreedesigner! Blessings was the ONLY entry out of 18 to get points in more than one event. LucasArg picked both Smashnova and Tanasugarn-the only "double" this week. Serena's semi loss deprived many of points. In all, 12 of 18 entries picked up points this week. Good luck in Oz:)
