Think it's easier to pick losers than winners? We'll see about that.

Ribbons has won the 2021 US Open YCWJ contest in come-from-behind fashion, finishing with 78 points. They were not near the top of the leaderboard until the last few rounds, and even then only in third. But having Yaroslava Shvedova as their top-confidence pick propelled them to the victory. She ended up as the women's wooden spoon winner, losing to Jasmine Paolini in the first round, who lost to Victoria Azarenka in the second round, who lost to Garbiñe Muguruza in the third round, who lost to Barbora Krejčíková in the fourth round, who lost to Aryna Sabalenka in the quarterfinals, who lost to Leylah Annie Fernandez in the semifinals, who lost to Emma Raducanu in the final.

Despite scoring a perfect 40 in the first two rounds, Federex was unable to hang on to the lead, finishing tied for second with IronMike. Both also correctly pegged Shvedova.

Pablo Carreño Busta was the men's wooden spoon winner for the second straight slam, though no one saw the pattern and picked him. He lost to Maxime Cressy, who lost to Nikoloz Basilashvili, who lost to Reilly Opelka, who lost to Lloyd Harris, who lost to Alexander Zverev, who lost to Novak Djokovic, who lost to Daniil Medvedev.

Thank you all for playing, and see you all next year for the 2022 Australian Open edition!

Thank you all. I am in shock. My other predictions had gone so awry (and favorite after favorite kept losing) that I'd gone off sulking took a break from reading about the tournament until just now.

And, having come within one round of winning SO MANY TIMES (Federex, I legit feel your pain), seeing the trophy spoon suddenly appear on my shelf is truly a thrill. Muchos besos to the organizers.
