16K4J, ahonkan, bue, Javier Gonzlez Nicolini, Luke Croll, Luke Tang,
Ukrfan - winners of the Wimbledon 2005 contest.  Going with the safe Fed/Rod
final, and having faith in Davenport (but not too much faith) did the trick.

Overall 2005 lead _still_ held by Yama, with Mike Galvin a mere point
behind, and others lurking.  And the elusive perfect 20 point score still to
be realized.

thanks for playing, see you in late August.

You've added this up wrong Hops. Guys who picked Roddick over Fed are
scoring the same as those who chose Fed over Rod?

It looks like I'm gonna be the overall leader after USO... Hopefully I can
get a perfect 20 this time.

You've changed it now to correct it. And don't pretend you didn't LOL

No fear, I will stay modest despite my success. Even though you puny
mortals will never achieve my awesome level of analysis prowess, I
may offer you some tippers. Maybe I will make an instructional DVD or two?

Wimbledon is really the easiest Slam to predict, it was Venus' run which
threw people off. I'm surprised that nobody picked the most obvious
Federer-Roddick-Sharapova-Davenport combo. I was about to go for it,
but decided in last minute to risk it and switched my bet to Grosjean.
Almost pulled it off... :(

I think I should get points for picking *a* Williams to beat Davenport in
the final. I'm certain there was a plot not to disclose that damn fracture
just to torpedo me...

Men are generally easier to predict these days. Basically you take
Fed, and then there are a few names to choose for the other finalist,
depending on the slam. For women, there are about 5 players, any two
of them can make the final, and still you get surprises like Pierce
and Venus.

thanks for running the contest, Hops.

BTW, Gasquet in the final?  dunno, seems like you were thinking with
your racquet rather than your head...;-)
