Mutua Madrileña Draw Challenge
This is your official head's up to join the draw challenge for Madrid. You can start making picks from Friday evening ET (US,) and usually the closing is early a.m. on Sunday. I'll check back.

Here's the link to our group. You can PM me or tented re: the password if you haven't already joined. But remember, at least enter the challenge, and you can join the group at any time.

Do play, and good luck!

I'm glad you pointed out that people can join the group at any point, but the first priority is to enter.

I'd like to join. But a question: Will it be like I was absent all year and thus have no chance of catching up? Or is it just tournament by tournament? It seems like you all have point totals already from previous tournaments?

Two different scores, tournament by tournament and total. I missed Monte Carlo so didn't get any points there. But the most fun part is just to follow your picks and see what others picked IMO.

This is correct. You still have a chance at "bragging rights" by individual tournament. Smile And let's face it, none of us is likely to win the overall circuit. It just adds a little spice to your enjoyment, especially in the early rounds, where you might not have cared much about certain matches, but now you've invested in one player over the other.

I'll pm you with the password, El Dude. You can decide later. But remember...and to all: you have to make your picks by 5am ET (9am GMT) on this Sunday! And you can revise your picks at anytime until the deadline...giving you a chance to see some of the qualifiers.

Thank you Richard Gasquet for losing. NOT. Oh well, at least the others are doing well for me.

I am on a freefall from the draw challenge very similar to the spaceman who made that promotional jump for Red BullConfused

Mine is going quite poorly right now, but on the bright side all of the people I have predicted deep runs for are still in it...

LOL! These draw challenges aren't important, anyway (said the guy currently tied for last).
