Hi there Ace! I know the deadline is upon us. I did almost forget that the tournament starts on Sunday though. It's tough this year picking a potential winner on the WTA side. Have to study the draws carefully.

I made my final selection for WTA: Mladenovic, Pavlyuchenkova, Bertens.

Can't believe that this is my team... but simply could not argue in favor of another players based on results or health..

Time to improve on my top 5 finish at the AO
This is as good as mine

Grav I picked Goffin cause of you. He lets me down I'm taking it out on you

13 will be oh so sweet

Doubtful??
You will eat those words young man

They said he couldn't win Wimbledon
They said he would never get past an old man and a cheat
Now they say he is finished

I believe he has one left. His only motivation is the 1 seed and the 4 seed. As long as they go he should go. Not about money, $200 million is more than enough. This is about pride

So far there were two WTA players that were selected in a Skan-team that completed their match: Kerber and Goerges.

Both lost...

it shows how messy the WTA-side of the Skan will become.

Noted that no one picked Kvitova...

70 teams.. It's always surprising when we reach that magic number. I didn't think we'd get over 60 this time, without our friends from TAT forum. It was going so slow..
Good luck to all !!!!!
