Generally speaking, the scores are lower than they were for RG.
go firmly to the window
and listen with deep emotion,
but not with the whining, the pleas of the coward;
listen-your final pleasure-to the voices,
to the exquisite music of that strange procession

the match Federer - Nadal will shake up the Skan ranking today.
Most teams have 2 of the best 3 ATP players. Nadal winning will be huge for the Skan. Only 19 teams selected him versus 59 for Federer.
Come on, Nadal, keep my team alive. Prove the Skan fans wrong!!!

Should have at least known that Nadal wins on clay and federer wins on grass. There may some rare exception. Now I see why Federer got 59 teams. :(
Let's restart the Skan. lol lol .... I want Halep and Federer.

Quarterfinal Summary

BHar11 has jumped to top spot with a pretty firm griip on the throat of the SKAN. Only BHAR11, patrick [5th place] and fastbackss [6th place] have four seeds left through the QFGs. Lurking, however, is GeeTee [12th place], one of only two teams with Svitolina [the other, Ban Boy, is in 68th place].
