Tonylovestennis decided to have an All-American team.
I responded that he was doomed from the men's side; but could do fine with the ladies.. Turned out to be true. :)

Del Po what happened?.. you win the first set. I leave, and come back thinking you are finishing off Nadal...#ed_op#br#ed_cl#And what? a bagel... Are you spraying the court with the fuzzy yellow round stuff? :)#ed_op#br#ed_cl#Oh well, I got Nadal for my Skan so... It's alright.. A bit disappointed.

I can only win this contest if Sloane wins and Rafa loses. If Keys wins, then I'm done. If both Rafa and Sloane win, then CCR is the winner from the 6th spot.

Aren't the medals premature? rex himself said that if both Sloan and Rafa win then Cross Court Rally takes the SKAN. Rafa is the favourite tomorrow, so why write off CCR? Was rex wromg?
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

Hmmm ... no I just checked and CCR can't make up the difference, since rex also has Rafa and the differential is too great to be overcome by their respective seeding.
