Fun Facts – US Open Edition
The last post for the US Open 2021 and possibly the last post of 2021. I want to say a big thank you to absolutely everyone who has not only entered for the US Open but who also entered the 3 grand slams before. You are the reason that the fantasy league is so much fun and you make my job so easy, so thank you! We managed an amazing 66 teams for the US Open and the leaderboard was tightly contested throughout. If you had picked the best possible team you would’ve scored 363 points which is a whopping 115 points more than what our winner managed to score. This is mainly due to the ladies draw which hardly anyone would’ve predicted.
Amazingly “Chalk Dust” managed to pick the 4 best males that were possible. The best picked female team scored 115 points and was picked by “Highly Strung”.
The best team overall was ‘Lorna’s Leaderboard’. Lorna narrowly lost out at the French Open where she settled for 2nd place. This time round she held her lead from day 6 all the way to day 14. An incredible feat.
The top 5 best males:
- Medvedev – 63 points
- Djokovic – 49 points
- Zverev – 41 points
- Harris – 33 points
- Auger-Aliassime/ van de Zandschulp/ Alcaraz – 31 points
The top 5 best ladies:
- Raducanu – 69 points
- Fernandez – 46 points
- Sabalenka – 39 points
- Sakkari – 33 points
- Krejcikova – 29 points
The full list of all the men and ladies that were picked and the amount of points they scored.
See you all next year for the Australian Open. Until then enjoy the Laver cup which starts this weekend and enjoy the Mens and Ladies end of year finals.
