All 4 of my picks are solid going into the QF's.

Dementieva beats Safina

Federer beats Tsonga

Given a chance to revise picks now, I wouldn't change a
thing.

Can YOU say the same ?

My picks were not "monkey see monkey do" picks either but
well thought out "professional" choices.

My only hesitation was between Simon and Tsonga. I initially chose
Simon and then switched to Tsonga.

But, it remains my biggest pick "hesitation" as Simon could surprise
both Rafa and Tsonga.

No matter what, I "feel good" about my choices and my chances of
picking not only the top 4 but the top 5.

There's a chance you'll get 0 points so wait till you count your
chickens. This is the mistake you're making with Fed = goat - ie 'if'
he does blah blah....

You're NOT in the HOPS contest for the A.O. this year, so stop trying
to pretend you are Dave.
