The results are in for the Tennis-X Pick-the-Year-end-Top-10 Contest, and after an 11-way tie that burned out three calculators, an abacus and two Dell laptops and a blender, a winner has been crowned.
Twelve players — anthony, Daniel, funches, Janadev, markrules, Mike, MMT, Rick V, Sheryl, Tom, Sean Randall and Von — tied by correctly picking eight of the year-end ranked Top 10 according to the December 7 ATP Rankings. So then a tiebreaker came into play.
One contestant clearly stood out from the pack — “anthony” — who picked four correct positions, ahead of markrules, Sheryl, Rick V and MMT who each had two positions nailed.
The four anthony had were Roger Federer at #1, Novak Djokovic at #3, Nikolay Davydenko at #6 and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at #10.
Props also to Mike and Janadev who, managing to guess eight of the final 10, had none of them in their proper positions, no small feat. High five each other.
So anthony your quest is to e-mail the website honcho Luke Johnson (ljohnson AT tennis-x DOT com), who will compare your IP address, email, carbon footprint or some other magic like that for confirmation. And then give us your address so you can be mailed your magical prize pack filled with various tennis gifts and treats.
