Ps: I see that Kunalwalia emerged again &#128512;.. he has a tendency of appearing and winning immediately (see US Open 2015). We better be careful &#128512;&#128512;

Ps:and serenarulz too... it is a reunion!!

Thanks grav....
Although these are some big shoes to fill.... if you know what I mean.... hehe

But I doubt I can pull it off this time since makarova and azarenka already decided to lose.... and I’ve placed my bet on Venus, so that could go wrong too....

Anyways I’m just loving the open this time due to the quality of early round matches.... just finished watching nadal-khachanov and shapopalov-anderson.... kept juggling.... lol

Waiting for vee-ree to start....

Too late for me to watch.. over 1am here, so bedtime..
As for the Pgame: a lot can happen in the next 10 days. All you need is a bonus in the latter stages.

Quite exciting times for the D2F: for the moment, no less than 6 people participate in the WTA D2F Game. That must be the highest number that I can recall for a D2F game...

And others can still decide to enter up to the start of the first R16 match...

Did not look yet at the ATP-D2F...

So we are ready for the final: a battle for the #1 in the rolling ranking....

It is between Wannadoo75 (leading the PGame US OPen game)and me... #2 in this Game.
Wannadoo75 has serena as uWP (so has to pick her), and I go for Osaka - time for another 1997'er to win a slam...

And whoever wins, becomes the #1 in the rolling ranking. For the moment, it is Wannadoo75 in the lead. I was #1 for two weeks in august.

Wannadoo75 can win the US Open for the 4th time, wereas I can win it for the 3rd time (and defend a slam - never done that before :-) )

Wannadoo75 has Serena on his side, so he looks like the likely winner. But anything is possible...

Osaka gave me PGame glory!!!

I admit: totally unexpected. Well done, Naomi! The second 1997’er with a slam...

ATP final underway.

Good luck to Jeff, my main opponent for the title: he got Novak as uWP, whereas I wrongfully picked DelPotro.

But if the latter wins, I probably take the WTA-ATP double :-) (correct scores can stop me though).

It would be Jeff's first ATP slam, and as I already won RG ATP this year, I genuinely would not mind losing to him.
But I was not gonna give it away, so had to pick DelPotro....

I would have loved to have Delpo pick up a second slam title, but I just couldn't envision him having the firepower to overcome Novak at the moment. My first slam! Thanks to everyone who makes these contests possible - I know I don't post much, but I do enjoy reading everyone's thoughts and participating in the games (when I can remember to get my stuff in on time).
