Skan - Roland Garros 2022

Post by Graveller » May Mon 16, 2022 5:05 am

The event has been set up, my provisional team is submitted.

I am going to skip Nadal after seeing his Rome-match vs Shapovalov on tv. I have serious doubts if his body can deal with all those 3-4-5-setters at the moment. It was not pretty, that third set...
I also saw Swiatek play: 5 tournament wins in a row, and unbeaten since becoming #1. She is obviously not one that crumbles under pressure. A worthy heir to the #1-spot, just like Barty was before her. I guess most will pick her.

Two top 32-players are not in the draw at the moment:
ATP: #10 Berrettini (recovering from hand surgery)
WTA: #32 Svitolina (makes sense; she and her husband Monfils just announced that they expect their first child in October. Could be the end of her professional career).

Thanks for setting this up, Grav
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

No problem. Would not want to miss a Skan.

Was the only participant since Monday… good to see that we are at least with 5…

Tough draw to pick a team.

We've barely started and there are only three teams still fully intact. Crazy. And everyone but RandomSkan has Swiatek, and all but threeof those have Iga as the number one seed. So that kind of neutralizes her results.

The SKAN will be won by the results of the dark horses ...
