Re: Yoda Cup - Wimbledon 2018

Thanks Arnie, let the red begin (oh, it has)
Pretty sure I picked Ryan Harrison by the way, but may have picked his brother. Probably equally stupid. Can I choose which one I want after the first round? wink

Thanks for the Post of Awesomeness Arnie!!

Surprised how popular Wozniacki was given her lack of success here (Never made QFs).

For me she was the best shot in that 16th of the draw:- and she did well in Eastbourne, and I thought she might see grass as a new challenge. On the other hand she may well fizzle out super quick. Coco would have been a test, but she looks pretty injured right now.

I'll agree her draw isn't bad. Hard to know what to expect with Vandeweghe. Makarova isn't an easy 2R (Good fast court player, beat her at last year's US Open). Same with Aga in the 3rd even though she'll be favored in all those matches.

Re: Yoda Cup - Wimbledon 2018

The three most popular Top 16s on the women's side are my only 3 Top 16s  lol

Anyone got any predictions on what -16s we'll get tomorrow?  I'm guessing Sock, Cecchinato, Halep ( tongue ), and Peng (sorry Tono).  And of course, every single one of my players, but that goes without saying.

I'd go with Dzumhur, Shapovalov, Cecchinato, possibly Peng. I have Sock crashing out Round 2, as bad as he's been all year, I think he still gets by Berrettini.

Re: Yoda Cup - Wimbledon 2018

Good point.  No one took Shaps, though, so no -16 for us if he loses.

Re: Yoda Cup - Wimbledon 2018

So did Dwight and Dtrain manage to send their picks in time? If so, could you please post your complete teams here so I can add them? Thanks!

Re: Yoda Cup - Wimbledon 2018

Awesome job Arnie!
and thanks for the assist Tono!

actually, I took screen shots of my teams... always wise to do... so there can be no question that I did pick Nishikori instead of Edmund.  However, I also took Kvitova over Stephens in the final... much as I think Serena might actually be a better pick... honesty compels me to go with what's on the screen shot...

Re: Yoda Cup - Wimbledon 2018

I was worried about Muguruza, which is why I didn't pick her. I am surprised by Petra's result. I used recent results to judge whether to pick them or not.
