Draw Challenge Rome Masters 2013
I guess we will have little time to complete the draw challenge, as the draw is not yet out and I assume they begin play tomorrow.

Thanks for starting the thread, D. The draw is out and you have until 10am ET tomorrow to pick. Good luck!

Do I need to put up the link again? PM me or tented for the password.

Here is the link.

Too bad we don't know the qualifyers, Gulbis is among them.

By the way, I was checking the Troicki - Tipsarevic h2h (couldn't make a pick) and had to laugh after seeing Tipsarevic's terminator picture:

Thanks for adding the link, Deni. That's a great pic from Tipsy! LOL.

RE: Draw Challenge Rome Masters 2013
I decided to go with mostly unnamed qualifiers, as a novel approach. And right now, I have Wawrinka beating Djokovic. If the ankle is an issue, Stan's got a shot, if he still has gas in the tank. (I suppose the results tomorrow will feature.)

A few others are, as usual, go bold, or go home. Well, we see how I do. Smile

LOL! I'm surprised they used it.

Oakley glasses must be the most expensive piece of his gear, so no wonder he used the opportunity to advertise them.

The two Serbs are both out of form, but I think the man with man in black glasses will lose.

I saw that, and couldn't believe it. Two matches have been completed today which they haven't yet added, and I got them right, too.

Plus, as I write this there are two matches underway, and the scores are heading towards my picks. It's possible within the next hour or two that I will have picked 10 out of 10 of the first matches. If that happens, it will never happen again.

Oakley lost Lance Armstrong so maybe Tipsy is the new cover boy..

They probably would have been less embarrassed if they'd stuck with Lance.

He won't lose, because he has withdrawn. Janko's place is taken by (LL) Rosol

He could meet Rafa in the R16.

He could, but I doubt they will meet. The most likely candidate to meet Rafa IMO is Gulbis, who defeated Nieminen today, and meets the winner of Troicki/Rosol.

I think you're right. In a way, though, I would like for them to meet, so that Rafa can exorcise that demon.

The right way to do that, i think is to meet him on grass and defeat him, no?
