It seems more of a topic abroad than in belgian news... More busy with the upcoming football World Cup.

Yup !!! Slam #24 with baby in tow.
Patrick and Venus ruined it though. They let Serena play Doubles. I am still p.o.

I won't win the Skan, but at least I got the WTA D2F Roland Garros title in the bag :-)

Top 3 are real regulars who know their tennis: Charlie, Federex and Divan are a great podium.

Well, done to our medal winners: enjoy the success but be ready to defend your reputation in three weeks!!!

Edit: I failed big time in the Skan but got three consolation prizes: ATP PGame Slam, D2F WTA Slam and ATP D2F Slam...

I can live with that 😄😄

Once my lady Serena withdrew, that was it for my team.
But, Wimbledon is right around the corner. The Queen of Wakanda will give it another shot. She's still the leader of my team.

I got Cecchinato for Wimbledon. He's going to surprise everyone by going straight to the Final. :)
French Open was not that bad. Everyone had Nadal and Halep so it was hard to get out of the pack. Everyone got points when these 2 won their matches. :(
Usually the teams that have the 2 winners end up in the top-10.
Not this time.
