somebody else must be doing my picking - I'm used to being second to bottom not second to top!! It's dizzying heights!
Dare to dream Nancy Jenkins. You're in uncharted territory in 2nd place ;)
Neck and Neck lLefty 1 am on your tail, watch the Fed
Oh no I'll have to up my game Stevo!
Eugenie! I thought you had the measure of Coco. So close (to my points) and yet so far.
BeezKneez and Kiwitennis lead after round 2 with 30 out of a possible 32 points. And no one still on zero - well Novak prob feels like a zero. Get your picks in for round 3 by 1pm.
Damn it ... I've not entered how many Sets FFS!!!
Well, at least I have a Point.
Great start by the 8 tied on 15 points after round 1. But a long way to go and the 12 still on ZERO could still become heroes.
What a bunch of bogans watching the Thompson v Sousa match. A disgrace how they were allowed to carry on like that, if you ask me. No wonder Sousa lost focus!
Oh Lauren! - Better luck next year. Was a different Serena today eh?!....
I can't believe I'm coming fourth!! Going to retire unbeaten!!!
Goodonya Nance. Those are heady heights - better sit down for a bit as dizziness could affect your picking ;-)
ASB Classic winner Lauren Davis gives 59 people a bad start to the game! Must have got injured! :-(
Can't understand why Eugenie Bouchard looked so hot on court last night,...it was only 22 degrees.
1st time playing - Madison ! Nooooo ! #TheUmp
I would like to reveal that sweet Caroline is 17.
And that Garbine is seven. Could there be inappropriate bonuses ahead ump?
1st round losers at Melbourne get $A50,000 and go home. 1st round losers in the Legend of OZ might score a nailbiter point but get to keep playing. Good luck everyone.
Deadline extended to 1pm for registration and picking. Thinking of changing a pick? Yeah! Nah! Ump's advice - pick and forget.
Hope it's not too windy for Serena (Miss Precious) !!
Can't wait till tomorrow, The Aussie Open is the best Grand Slam in my opinion. Good luck everyone... I'm hoping not to snooker myself late in the piece as I usually do!
Draws are up. Time to avago at the Legend of OZ. Good picking.
Hang tight Pickers. Final round of qualifying is underway in Melbourne so the draws should be loaded later today.
Umpire, I don't anything for group prizes 😇
I don't see anything for group winners?
Fair suck of the sav Windmill! Groups are all about gaining bragging rights over yer mates ;)
But there is a box of balls for the top club Group overall. Mission Bay Tennis Nutters have won it twice in a row. Can they make it 3 in a row? Unlikely says the Ump as the rules have been tweaked!!
Hope these precious players who pull out of ASB step up ready in Melbourne 😜😳
Bring it Mate!
So pumped to play! Finally an aussie open version!
So exciting to be playing the game again - thanks Ump!
