    Will still accept entries as long as games are not yet starting.

    I'm pretty sure matches began at 6:35pm. 
    Sorry, I have to make an exception this year. Never anticipated that they'll start at 6:30pm and I've already announced that 7pm will be the deadline.

    Since no match has finished at 7pm yet and picks can still either win or lose, all entries and changes before 7pm will be accepted. Hope all participants will understand. Muchas :)

    1. There's a total of 59 official participants in this year's Wimbledon FL. This includes 29 out of the 32 seeded players, and 2 rookies.

    2. Surprisingly, former Wimbledon champion mykel14 failed to submit his entry.  =)

    3. Some of the Men's Picks Favorites are:
    • 1-8: Roger Federer (35), Marin Cilic (11), Rafael Nadal (10)
    • 9-16: Novak Djokovic (40), Nick Kyrgios (7), Milos Raonic (4)
    • 17-32: Kei Nishikori (23), Kyle Edmund (7), Lucas Pouille/Pablo Carreno Busta (5)
    • Uns: Gilles Muller (13), Mischa Zverev (9), Gilles Simon/Gael Monfils (6)

    4. Some of the Women's Picks Favorites are:
    • 1-8: Petra Kvitova (24), Simona Halep (15), Garbine Muguruza (11)
    • 9-16: Angelique Kerber (28), Venus Williams (15), Madison Keys (7)
    • 17-32: Serena Williams (40), Maria Sharapova (9), Magdalena Rybarikova/Agnieszka Radwanksa (3)
    • Uns: Victoria Azarenka (19), Eugenie Bouchard (7), Aryna Sabalenka (6)

    5. The Wimbledon 2018 failed to match its preceding editions with only 59 entries, the lowest since the French Open 2018. The Top 5 most participated FLs are 2015 US Open (148), 2015 Wimbledon (135), 2015 French Open (126), 2014 and 2016 Wimbledon (125) and 2013 US Open (121). The Fantasy League started with only 8 participants.

    6. World number 1 jomaxbag would likely to retain his ranking, but is expected to face serious challenges from former world no. 1 laocee, and world no. 11 cHarLie's AngEL. The lowest ranked player in the 2018 Wimbledon Draw is venetianblinds currently sitting at the 98th rank.

    7. Based on records, there's a total of 393 usernames that have participated in PinoyExchange Tennis Fantasy League ever. After the Wimbledon, there will be 395. 116 are currently placed in the World Rankings. 9 will be dropped off due to non-participation for a year.

    8. 12 former champions, hold the record of having been FL champions and world number 1 once in their careers.*

    *Records are based on FLs that has a complete data, including the Olympics 2012. Some FLs have no record (2007 AO, 2007 FO, 2008 WC, 2009 WC) and incomplete data (2005 US, 2006 AO, 2006 FO, 2006 WC)
