2 points1. in any leaderboard it should also be noted how many entries they've had, n88 for example must have played them all, I've missed boatloads.2. need to come up with something new that prevents 3/4/5 way ties etc, it's a bit lame, especially given it's tennis when draws are not possible, say that as the 2015 ATP French Open winner, along with 3 others, a tie break needs to be introduced, one idea could be that if all remaining players lose on a given day, they can all play the next day assuming there's rounds left, or winner is whoever picked most odds against picks etc, or introduce a back up pick in case all original picks lose.
1) Nobody lists how many slams Federer has played next to listing his number of majors.
2) I introduced tiebreakers on a trial basis for the 2021 season. It was based on the average odds of the picks. Asked at the end of the comp season if people wanted to keep tiebreakers, go back to the old system or if they preferred a tiebreaker, but done with something other than average odds of the picks. Got an opinion from exactly one person and that was to go back to how it was before the tiebreaker trial. I personally much preferred the tiebreaking solution myself, but democracy. So the tiebreaker stopped being used at the AO this year again.
Maybe I will do another rule consultation/brain storming one day and hopefully get more opinions.

2023 Australian Openmen: Anubis8women: GRANTCKING
Correction, I misgendered the winners.
The AO 2023 men were won by GRANTCKING, the women by Anubis8, not the other way around as originally stated.
