3 players (John, Serene, Wes) had match winner correct
0 players had match score correct


Our Game

I regret that the published predictions had an error: Wes’s prediction submission was, in actuality, Nadal 3 Djokovic 1.

Congratulations to Wes upon his first win in a tennis Prediction Challenge, and his 10th Prediction Challenge win overall, Wes earned top, or near-top, points in all four rounds. John and Petr earned second and third place and the remaining cash prizes.

I hope all players enjoyed this French Open Prediction Challenge! and the chance to match wits with other tennis fans! Thank you for playing! ~ Michael
