Hi,

as happened many times in the past, and also again at the US Open, we had a tie between people. I think there should be a single winner in these, so I made a tiebreaker up.

In the future I'd like to define a tiebreaking rule from the beginning. Maybe average ranking of the picks, or average odds of players picked. I'm really undecided as of now. If you have suggestions to break a tie, I'd like to hear it.

Fewest sets lost?

Average odds sounds like quite a lot of work. You would have to keep a record of the odds for each match picked.

Fewest sets lost, then maybe games lost....I like that, anubis.

There are websites who archive odds, so I or someone else would just have to go to that website and then look up some matches in case of a tie. Would take a few minutes. In practice I'd define the website (like https://www.oddsportal.com/tennis/usa/atp-us-open/results/) in the opening post and use those odds as reference.

Average odds of players picked would be cool
