(Updated with the results from Paris and Prague — revised standings can be found at the bottom of this post)
Paris Masters Final, David Ferrer vs. Jerzy Janowicz
(David Ferrer won, 6-4, 6-3 – Read all about it here)
Amy’s Pick: I picked against Janowicz yesterday because I didn’t think it was possible for lightning to strike three times. Well, I was wrong. I can’t do that again, after seeing him rip Gilles Simon to shreds in front of the home crowd today. Janowicz in three, because Ferrer will run down every drop shot.
Lindsay’s Pick: I don’t want to pick against Ferrer, and I really don’t want to pick against Janowicz, so I don’t know what to do. But I’ll go with Ferrer in two. It has to be his time. It just has to be.
Juan José’s Pick: I can’t pick against the Jerzy Train. I just can’t. And I won’t! The very tall Pole will complete what has to be the craziest run at a Masters Series title … ever. In straight sets, too!
Fed Cup Final:
Kvitova vs. Ivanovic:
(Ana Ivanovic won, 6-3, 7-5)
Amy’s Pick: I think Kvitova will come out ahead on this one. Ivanovic is overmatched. None of Ivanovic’s three wins against Kvitova came since 2009. Kvitova in straight sets.
Lindsay’s Pick: Kvitova was so solid today, she will close this out for the Czechs. I am sad that this will not be the dramatic final I was hoping for.
Juan José’s Pick: Easiest pick ever: Kvitova in straights. She righted the ship midway through the first set today, and I think she’ll roll from here. This tweet from Bobby Chintapalli says it all, I think:
During that last changeover the Czech coach apparently said, "Remember who you are — you are Petra Kvitova." She remembers and breaks JJ.

Petra Kvitova remembered who she was.
Safarova vs. Jankovic (If necessary):
(Lucie Safarova won, 6-1, 6-1)
Amy’s Pick: Jankovic leads their head-to-head 5-1, so I’d expect things to fall in line with their previous meetings. Jankovic in two.
Lindsay’s Pick: Safarova. Straights. Dead Rubber. Serbian despair. Oh my goodness.
Juan José’s Pick: Since it’s the final, they won’t play this if Kvitova clinches the title, right? If they do … I’m going with … Jankovic? Nah. Safarova in straights.
