I'd like to congratulate Mauresmo!  Jabeur has shown that she is a much worse choker than Amelie ever was.

I should have trusted the Brad Gilbert effect more.  Though credit goes to Gauff for going out and winning.  And now Djokovic and Margaret Court are tied in slams, though I expect that he'll break that tie at the Australian Open.

You've picked up 2 points for picking FAA as the Biggest Loser, but it was Rune on the men's side.  You picked up another 2 for choosing Krejcikcova, though it was Sakkari on the women's side.

Also, Ostapenko has knocked out your potential champion and my potential quarterfinalist for the women to remain unbeaten by Swiatek.  Does she hit that much harder than, say, a Sabalenka or Rybakina to hold that record?  Or is it that she just hits hard with abandon at all times, and Swiatek can't take that while the other players aren't willing to go for broke 100% of the time?

I have an undue faith in the Brad Gilbert effect.  But not that much faith.

The contest wasn't close, as you smoked me with 101.5 points to my 77.5.  Congrats, funches!

1. Pick quarterfinalists, semifinalists and champions for both ATP and WTA draws. You will receive 7.5 points for each correct quarterfinalist, 5 points for each correct semifinalist and 20 points for each correct champion.

2. SUBSTITUTE PICK: Pick a player from each draw to replace one of your quarterfinalists. If this player makes the quarters, they will take the place of whomever you picked in that section of the draw.

3. BIGGEST LOSER: pick the highest seed that will lose in the earliest round from each draw. The player must be a top-16 seed. You get 5 points if your seed is the highest to lost and 2 points if your seed falls in the same round as the highest seed to lose.

Picks must be posted by the time play begins or soon afterwards.  The Sunday start is causing me to swear as I post this.

Thank you, but I feel kind of bad that I won this way.  I knew that one of two results would give me the win, but I was hoping that it would be Zverev winning.

Here's an Tuesday morning update on standings.

I successfully picked 10 Quarterfinalists (6 men, 4 women) while you picked 7 (5 men, 2 women).  You have picked up 2 BL points for your Auger Aliassime pick, which would have given you 5 had Medvedev not crashed out in the first round.  Neither of us were good at picking the women's biggest loser (Sakkari), as both of our choices made it to the quarterfinals.

My Zverev pick is looking really good, and I am unsure that Rune will be able to give Ruud much of a fight if he hasn't completely recovered from his 4th round match.

I am continually surprised at commentators saying that players like Rybakina and Sabalenka have games unsuited for clay when Sharapova showed that if you hit the ball hard and flat, you can win on clay.
