Last time she had to save MPs in R1, she won the event (Aussie Open 2016)

@ Grossefavourite:
 
Kerber is in my provisional Skan team, but will NOT be in my final team...

That meltdown in the first set vs Venus was epic... 5-3 up, 2 SP.... serving for the set at 5-4... then losing 10 of the last 11 points and Venus wins 7-5 without any effort.

That last service game... all that Venus had to do, was returning three times.. Kerber sprayed UE's & sealed her downfall with a DF... LOL...

Hopman Cup almost fooled me, but Kerber v.2018 looks a lot like Kerber v.2017

I don't know what Konta was doing here. She retired from Brisbase because injury. One would think she'd take off this week to rest.
Alright, she is off my Skan team.

OK, Kerber won apparently (did not see Set #2 and #3....).

Not gonna be fooled by this result: I saw her crumble when it mattered in Set #1... bad attitude.

Venus ran out of gas, but still encouraging given it's her first match, Angie has played and won a few matches already and it's sweltering in Sydney.

Mytiwtiw, go easy. You only encourage Maria bashing and it's tired all the way around.

Muguruza Withdraws from Sydney.
This gives me pause for the Skan. Taking her off my crew. Two tournaments, two withdrawals... Not a good sign.
