these are bookmaker prices but might be sufficient as a guideline
if you really really need BF prices you can download them from http://data.betfair.com/ but be prepared for some digging

@ mouse trap, unfortunately I couldn't accept your entry for Nadal as the match had already begun, I wouldn't be much of a tournament moderator (if that's the titleConfused) if I allowed bets to taken in play in an outright competition, even though the match was seemingly level, and even though your nearest rival didn't mind, it still wouldn't be fair, right or proper and would set a unwanted precedent for future tournaments, but remember it is about finishing top after 9 Masters events, the winner is the one that wins the war not the battlesHappy

Nadal v Del Potro


Make your selection before 9pm GMT, any selections after this time will not be accepted.

As it is now not possible for two players to finish level on points at the the top of the table to determine a clear winner, no tie-break is needed, good luck to sir_bond and nofx.

Congratulations to nofx for winning the 2013 Indian Wells Maasters 1000 Tipping Comp! nofx was floating around the top 4 the whole way through but stormed through the finish line in 1st after being the only player brave enough to back predict a Del Potro victory over the World Number 1 at the Semi Final stage. nofx also finishes the comp as the player with the highester number of correct picks, an impressive 65 from 93 entries! He also now leads the 2013 Circuit Leaderboard. Fullly deserved and well done.

Also a mention for Sir_Bond who was the only other player to remain in contention for the Indian Wells title until the final day of competition, well played.

Hope you all enjoyed playing.

NEXT STOP: MIAMI Cool

Del Boy was the difference between me winning and losing...

I didn't think he would beat Murray let alone Djoker

Good picks Nofx
