The "FO" game.




Once again, we march into history with the 2nd Magic pick game.

In the footsteps of our illustrious past, steeped in nostalgic tradition, we continue the vein in the "Game of Throwns" or "How To Pick A Losing Fancy".

As we did before and on completion of the Roland Garros mens singles draw, I invite you all to make a list of 10 players from each section of ten ranks, ie, one player from the rank 1-10, one from rank 11-20, one from R21-30 etc up to Rank 100.

The scoring system for each player is thus...

plus 10 points getting through 1st round - minus 5 for losing
plus 20 for 2nd round - minus 10 for losing
plus 30 for 3rd round - minus 15 for losing
plus 40 for 4th round - minus 20 for losing

plus 50 for QF - minus 25
plus 60 for semis - minus 30
plus 100 for final - minus 50 for loss.

You can make your picks before the draw or on the day or the day after, but then the picks close on midnight (GMT) of the second day, Saturday the 26th May.

List of latest Ranking here... http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/players/rankingsm.html

Good Luck to you all.

lol! I just can't. Same when I'm doing my ATP picks, feel like such a traitor if I don't pick Andy (not that I'm insinuating anything Mr Jubba ). And my optimism bubble is well and truly burst reading yours and CC's posts about Andy's niggling back injury. You may be right and he retires before the week is out. It is just not worth further damage with the hectic summer schedule coming up and three 'home' winners trophies he will be aiming for - Queens, Wimby and The Olympics.

MTS firmly in the lead with +130, Jubba a poor +65.

Not looking good for me, MTS has Almagro and Murray, I have just Nadal in it. Might come down to the semi's, or even the final.

Murray has Gasquet and possibly Ferrer to beat before meeting Nadal. On the other hand, if Djokovic doesnt win today, and its looking to be one hell of a struggle for him to do so, needing all 3 sets left to continue at RG, the final could be as open as its ever been if Nadal gets into any difficulties. Can't see him losing to Almagro or Monaco though, so lets hope its a semi with Murray at least.

Lol, can't believe I'm still winning with all my picks out (and you picking Nadal you traitor you!!!) though I know my early picks were pretty successful. Alas when Rafa lifts that trophy on Sunday I will concede defeat Very Happy

I'm afraid now that Nadal is through the Semi, thats it.....

Total...

MTS - no change

Jubba - Nadal - +60

MTS = 210 - 160 - 160

Jubba = 105 - 155 - 215

If Nadal loses the final, I'll end up with 165 MTS1......but with Murrays loss, its a hollow win.
