The draws are out. Same rules, predict the winner/finalist for both men and women. Scoring allocation:

Winner Pick is Winner  6 points
Finalist Pick is Finalist   4 points
Winner Pick is Finalist   3 points
Finalist Pick is Winner   3 points

Picks must be from different sides of the draw. If they are from the same side, only the Winner pick will be allowed.

If one of your picks is in danger of pulling out of the event you can select an alternate pick, but the alternate is only valid if the original pick withdraws before their first match.

A perfect score of 20 will be rewarded with a tennis program courtesy wendyg.

All entries will be listed here:

Entries must be posted before the first ball is struck in New York on Monday.

Good luck.

For me, that match is the main attraction in women's tennis right
now. Watching The Shriek fall apart.

Would like to see Jelena Jankovic, but she's apparently busy doing
something in her personal life. Maybe she'll be back when the
money runs out.

Sharapova is going to beat Serena if both make it to the final? I am
just curious what makes you believe that? Did you miss the Wimbledon
women's final this year? If you blinked you probably missed the
demolition! ;)

You seem to always base your judgment on past results. Then Nadal would
never have won Wimby 2008 even though Fed was mono-affected! Then Nadal
would never win against Djok again etc. etc.

If you knew a little about tennis, you would see that - if in form -
Sharapova has a much better ground game than Senera. That means that all
will depends on Shara not making errors and Serena's serve. And that can
lead to a Shara win.

I know a lot about tennis and I am sorry, I can't agree with your
opinion here. Sharapova does not do anything better than Serena tennis-
wise and I am a Sharapova fan and not a Serena fan.  Sharapova has no
game plan against an in form Serena. ZILCH. I keep waiting for
Sharapova to do something different to combat Serena and it has not
happened yet.

But I will say this, I like your ballsy pick and you will certainly
have the last laugh if what you are predicting does happen!

At her peak (2006-2007) she was a joy to watch.  My 2nd fave woman
player behind Henin.

Overall Serena is more reliable than Shara, but at her best Shara
matches it very well with her.  Shara plays her best far less than Serena.

FYI, Wimbledon women's final this year was Serena over Radwanska in
three sets.

Do you check this with Wendy every time, or just copy/paste it for the
last 10 years, and hope Wendy has something?  :-)
