SkanCan,

Is your signature referencing a Second Line funeral procession??
@djmm1962

not quite ... it's from a poem by Constantine Cafavy

:)
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

Maria draws Halep in Round 1.

Expect a withdrawal from Sugahpovah between now and Monday!

She would withdraw if she was in the qualies..
She did too much lobby for this WC and will do anything to get something out of it.
Halep has not played well lately.. Her losses in Toronto in Cincinnati were horrible.

Sharapova could have drawn Muguruza or Keys and she'd be in trouble.

Now, whom do I pick? I doubt Sasha Zverev is ready to win a Slam, best of 5, yet. But one never knows.....

And the women, oh goodness! None of them instill much confidence in me, that there is a clear favourite. Oh of course Garbine is being touted as the clear favourite, and although she had a great summer, it's not like she won Stanford, Toronto and Cincy....which would have been super difficult anyway. I really don't know whom to pick out of all the possibilities.

Nice to hear from you. Happy Skanning! :)
