Skan time.
Thanks Graveller for getting it going !!!!!
Got my draft team in.
In quest for #24. Let's make it happen, Princess of Compton, Queen of Wakanda, the one and only true #1 in tennis history.

25 teams so far... only made one change to my original pre-draw team.
Delpotro out and Novak in... needed a player from the bottom half...

I unfortunately had to drop my girl Halep.
Too close to Serena.
Had to drop Edmund too. Too close to a potential champion.
This draw is brutal for Halep and Serena.

10 minutes to go, and we reached 79... exact the same # of teams as Wimbledon....

RG had 81, Aussie open had 91...

30 teams take a big hit and lose Halep...

49 people were smarter....

Halep ...

There are no words ...

:roll:
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

Halep's gone. I was afraid that would happen.
When the big ballers are not missing, she can't do much.
