Ivanovic vs Jankovic TB Ivanovic 6-4 6-4 SR Ivanovic 2-0
Dared? What a bunch of chickens and pushers, for me Cibulkova was clear favourite, i even picked her in 2 :shrug: you'all play 45 tournaments per year, probably over 100 matches and you can't dare to not push for couples of those matchesonly jrm dared to pick Cibulkova :tears:

Same, I had my picks ready in case I won yesterday and Cibulkova was definitive.I would have picked Cibulkova as well :nerd:
the tour needs BBBs :sobbing:
Saying that she was the clear favorite is a bit much, but there is clear evidence so far in 2016 that everyone picks the same exact winners most of the time in WTA. I have been mentioning it in every TT thread now. It actually makes it a lot less fun than ITFs for me.Clear favorite?
Cibulkova lost to Bouchard and Mladenovic. Was down 3-9 in the (yeah old) H2H and is ranked #66 (compared to #18). Ranking and H2H favored Wozniacki. Form was a tie because both are having a bad 2016. Of course that doesn't mean that picking Cibulkova would've been a bad idea but she definitely was not the clear favorite. :scratch:
3 of the 7 other players in Singles are ranked higher than you. More than half of them made at least 1 GS final in their career and two of them have been #1. Another one #2. They probably know what they're doing.
Well, I need proof that 6-3 6-4 gives you the best chance, because in the end, if everyone puts 6-4 6-3 or 6-3 6-4, then you are likely to head to other TB matches, which makes TB useless.63 64 gives you the best chance of winning. That's why
And I didn't say it was a bad pick. I probably would've thought about picking her too. She just wasn't the favorite. And definitely not the clear favorite.
Looking at 3 of the last 4 slams (Wimbledon didn't have a PDF version of the draw), that's not the case.If you look at results, there are just as much 6-1, 6-2, 7-5 or 7-6 sets as 6-3 or 6-4.
