Sorry - didn't see it. What's the question, dj?
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

With the week1 loss of my ream members Sabalenka and Serena, I was annoyed with myself for not going with my alternative options.
That feeling has gone now because all these other options lost too in the first week.: Osaka, Bencic, Pliskova. So the outcome would have been the same.

I never considered Halep or Kvitova, but they may be the ones that could surprise.

Round 4 Summary

Typically, the very top players will be well represented in the team selections. Success boils down to the seeding mix on the teams and the dark horse selections. The current dark horses paying dividends to contestants are:

Muguruza [1 team]
Kenin [3 teams]
Kvitova [3 teams]
Wawrinka [12 teams]

Current leader Borenore2 has both Wawrinka and Kenin, and is also the only contestants having lost only 1 player.

That must have been on ESPN, because TAT wasn't up and running then. Well, at least I didn't join until December 2004. So you will have to remind me. What was the topic?

None of the women here deserve to be in Grand Slam finals.
They can't serve. They can't return. They can't hit ground stroke... Just pushing and missing.
So borrrrrrring !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
