Winner Announced for 2018 Tennis-X Year-End Top 10 Contest
by Staff | December 9th, 2018, 11:14 pm

What was worse, the atrocious picks this year, or the atrocious job of figuring them out?
Injuries to Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka, then Grigor Dimitrov and Nick Kyrgios flaming out ruined just about everyone’s Top 10.

“Wawrinka is selected at number 1 spot because he is returning from knee surgery and we know what knee surgery in Switzerland can do!” wrote t4t.


David Goffin also hurt a lot, if not all of, the Top 10 picks.

jay jay threw it in everyone’s face, picking six out of nine correctly, including the only to pick Kevin Anderson in the Top 10, then wrote “Who Cares on #10, LOL.”

TWELVE players tied for first place. When the first tiebreaker was applied, six of the 12 all had two players in the correct year-end position in the Top 10. So the second tiebreak was applied — who had the highest of the two chosen correctly? That winner was Ckzebra, who correctly chose Novak Djokovic finishing No. 1, and Rafael Nadal finishing No. 2.

Congrats to Ckzebra!

After him/her, all tied with 7 in the Top 10 and two correct were armelwani, funches, Mridul7, Margot and khojiE. With seven correct and one in the correct position in the Top 10 were Daniel, RZ and Vinod. With seven in the Top 10 but none of their positioning correct were gonzalowski, Leo and ZipC.

Left out of the mix was Jaq Shivam, who had won the last two seasons.
