@ Graveller -

Splendid analysis. Enough to make my head spin, as the SKAN rightfully should.
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

ok, pretty sure it is most likely between JeMa and Borenore

spvxv is #2 but needs to make up on JeMa with a Halep (as JeMa also has a Kerber, Woz and Federer). But due to the position of Halep in Spvxv’team at #6 - ie below Kerber and Woz - the victories of Halep against those two will be less beneficial compared to Borenore where a Halep is #1... and a Borenore only trails by 3 points.

If Cilic wins the Final: JeMa wins
If Cilic reaches the Final: JeMa wins unless Halep wins; in that case, Borenore will win
If Cilic loses in the SF: JeMa wins if Kerber reaches the final.
If Cilic loses in the SF and Halep loses the final vs Woz: Borenore

Now looking at a Cilic loss in the SF and a Mertens win vs Halep in the final:
It all depends on the size of the wins of Mertens vs Woz and Halep AND the size of the win of Halep vs Kerber

A big win of Mertens vs Woz will be worst for Spvx and least for LCav. At the same time, the Halep win vs Kerber will benefit Borenore the most.
But in the Final. Borenore will suffer the most from a Halep-loss, and Spvxv the least. On top of that, Spvxv will benefit the most from each Federer in (zing Sf and F), but would suffer more from a Fed-loss too
And the bigger each of these wis, the more impact.

So I guess Cilic losing in the SF and Mertens winning vs Halep would make it a three-horse race to the finish between Spvxv, Borenore and LCav...

So if LCav winS this Skan, it means that Mertens won the Slam.I can live with that 😂

I love these kind of analyses of the Skan teams in the SF stage...

It really shows the importance of the place of each player in your team when the differences are small

Spvxv is still alive because Halep managed to win with the smallest difference (skan-points-wise), so he limited the damage with regard to Borenore.

But he needs two big Federer wins and a small Halep win (or if Woz wins the final, then Cilic needs to lose today).

Sorry, LCav, but no win for you: You cannot make up any points on Borenore anymore.

Please see my PM re the SKAN.

Hello everyone!!! Have I already won or is there a chance JeMa can win if Fed loses to Cilic?

This will be my 2nd win if I win. Won the US open contest 2-3yrs ago I think.

Awesome!!!
