I hesitated selecting Osaka. Dang, should have stayed away. Putin's girl got her number.
And my Skan takes an early hit again.
Going straight to Disctrict RU90. :( :( It's so hard to get out of there when one lands there on day 1. lol lol ...
What happened to the District's Mayor any? Hope he is in good health and enjoying tennis somewhere in Siberia. :)
:lol: :lol: did u miss the memo on Putin's girl?

No I didn't. It did cross my mind that Putin's girl might down her again. But I thought Osaka was ready for revenge.
I am watching the match right now. 2-1 Osaka leading and she is playing some amazing tennis.
That dress was made for 7 matches and a trophy. :)
She is glowing in it. So beautiful. Too bad we won't see her again on the green grass.
Why couldn't she play the whole match the way she is playing in this first few games. Never seen her dominate the net like this. Got to keep it up.

I was surprised to see that only three of us had Thiem. And now he's a first round casualty.

Pass the gruel ...
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

I didn't do my homework on Thiem and grass. Three 1st-round exits in 6 events. Serves me right.

I see no one took Nishikori, who is having a very successful tournament. This leads me to wonder of the 7th ranked player is "caught in the SKAN cracks", so to speak. If you opt for two of the top three players, then you have to go past #7 to complete a qualifying team.

I wonder if the data over time reveals that the 7th ranked player is disproportionately not picked as a general outcome.
