    Men's Tennis ATP Nitto Finals 2018

    Anderson has been playing very well here, so it is no wonder how Really improved his game. I thought last year's US Open final was a fluke, but under these ATP circumstances, he is legit top 8 player with decent game to offer.
  8. Final Standing available here Dunadan CiroMennella99 titicow First, my apologies for very late results. I was overloaded with work recently (you could notice my absence during TISC final as well). But we are back on track and here are the results. What to say, @Dunadan is a master of prediction contests, and with this win almost secured Year-End #1. Congratulation on the win at this rather unpredictable contest Italians, Italians everywhere. After n-th medal for Dunadan, @CiroMennella99 wins his second in a month or two! Very close to Dunadan, but still, amazing effort. Congrats! With excellent result on final day, @titicow snatched new medal, bronze this time. Congrats! Unfortunately someone had to be #4, and it appears @juliosilva simply cannot miss it! I hope you will be much more lucky during next two. Curiously, none of the medal winners had perfect score, while @Dolby had two of them. Inconsistency was enough for 7th place. I want to thank @thiago_simoes for being helpful in preparation of this contest. Thank you everyone who participated, I hope you join for the remaining two prediction contest and we can finally close this season.
