It didn't smile...Djokovic breezed through the 3rd and 4th sets smile But upsets continue all over the place (at least as far as our picks are concerned smile )

Well I'm upset, Srini! Only four of my picks left in on the female side (not helped by me picking one player twice - but on the positive side, she's still in).

Number 4 seed Azarenka out as well. Since I chose her twice to lose in the quarter finals, can I have double points??

I suspect he'll decide stupidity shouldn't be rewarded, though.

Huge and well deserved win by Li Na, I just wish it could have been with her giving up one less game to Schiavone, who also played well.

Apologies for the delay. I already have the men's report written down on paper, but have been away from my desk to deal with something so I didn't have a chance to post it. The women's is going to be forthcoming too, soon enough.

  • Rafael Nadal wins his sixth French Open. A record result, and a very good one considering the struggles he had early on in the tournament.
  • Fun fact about Rafael Nadal: Did you know he's actually right-handed?
  • Congratulations to gtho4, who wins the 2011 Men's French Open tipping competition!
  • He won with 58 out of a possible 130 points and with twelve correct tips. He defeated his closest competition by six points.
  • Second place went to LeoDaVinci. He was right in the chase with eleven good picks.
  • Third through fifth, and tenth-eleventh places all were decided by a tiebreaker.
  • The podium spot goes to triviapaul who was only two off on his first tiebreaker. He ekes by paper_aero and Sypher.
  • Checking into the (beer) cellar, we can find BxBarracuda whose 16 points were only slightly worse than ozzz2002's. Ozzz usually has brave tips, but BxB's were, like, so last year's... smile
  • The only upsets that went untipped were Chela and Fognini making it to the quarter-finals.
  • The streak that Djokovic had going was stopped by Federer, but doesn't include Fognini, who withdrew in the quarter-finals due to an injury.
  • This was a record-setting French Open with thirteen people tipping. The all-time record is 14, at Wimbledon.
  • Women's results to come. See you all at Wimbledon!

  • Li Na wins her first ever Grand Slam title, and the first for her country, China!
  • Congratulations to triviapaul, who wins the 2011 Women's French Open tipping competition!
  • He won on a tiebreak - both he and BxBarracuda had 57 points out of a total of 148 possible.
  • Eighth, ninth and tenth places were also decided on a tiebreaker.
  • Third place went to srini701 who was the only tipster to pick Petkovic.
  • illiniman4 and triviapaul were the only ones to pick Pavlyuchenkova, while rossian was the only one to pick Kuznetsova.
  • While rossian did pick Azarenka twice, even if she had gotten double points, it would not have propelled her into a podium position.
  • Propping up the table, we find ozzz2002. He barely missed out on getting a golden wood for the competition.
  • gtho4 ought to stick to tipping the men's side of the competition.
  • Again, this was a record-setting French Open with thirteen people tipping. The all-time record is 14, at Wimbledon. Bring all your friends to tip and we can break the record!
  • See you all in less than a month!

Congrats to all those people at the other end of the ladder, and thanks to LDV for highlighting my ineptness. smile

I'm happy with mid table respectability for both, especially as it was my first attempt. Thanks for the hard work in putting this together, LDV, but I'd like to mention that I'm a 'she' not a 'he'. Congratulations to the winners. The ladies side was especially difficult to predict.

George beat me only because his cheque was larger than any of the rest I got.

Wow, two medals in one go. It was more luck than skill but that doesn't take away the satisfaction. Congrats to my fellow medalists and all those who earned respectability. Many thanks to LDV for the work and see you all in Wimbledon in less than a week.
