We can still reach 39.

Joe & Rajeev 6-6* in the final set of their doubles.


 ... 12-12 tie break - is that the first?

Well that's me out of it. I think the max now is 34. That would require an Evan/Eden vs Andy/Serena final in the Mixed and JoKo winning the singles.

Can we include Juniors please......pretty please ?

I can't count. It was max 38 after Jamie's mixed doubles loss but at least that did have Bob still in the game.

But no more 

Joe & Rajeev lose what indeed is apparently the first Wimby final set TB and we are down to max 34 ( agree with Bob ). 

Jo will win 3 more matches if she wins the title. Evan & Eden and Andy & Serena will win 7 more in total if they are the finalists in the mixed. As again said.

So it's down to andy and eden and evan. 7 more wins max, unlikely , so it looks like mid to high 20's at the end ?!

And around 28 percent of voters said in the 24 to 29 range so may prove good predictors!

Regardless of how this tally looks its been a very poor Wimbledon British wise despite 20 odd wild cards dished out.

I'd say that overall our MD singles really hasn't been that bad at all. Indeed one could argue that it's been pretty good. I guess though you are very concerned about our doubles  wink

PS: And overall indeed 24 wins is already quite a bit better total than your predictions 1 and 2. So you clearly had extremely low expectations.

 Well, as I think the singles wins should count for three times the doubles ones (don't you???? smile), I think it's been pretty successful.

Yes, Jo and Evo 'should have/could have' won. And, yes, we has good draws. But the number of singles wins, for whatever reason, is the joint highest for ages. So I'm fine with that.

 A bit like insider trading though. Tough matches for both pairs next round  so we could be at the end of the road

If only everyone else went for 38+ like we did, we would have made it. The power of positive thinking is very underrated. wink
