Re: Australian Open - Yoda Cup 2021

Looks like I have all the most popular picks except the unseeded players.

I was torn between Zverev and Tsitsi. Initially had Sasha but was afraid of Rafa's back and Nole, so went with the greek.
Unseeded was between Struff, kyrgios and gerasimov.
For the women, halep or vika was the big question, went with the romanian. Mugu, svitolina or sabalanka were also on the radar...

Re: Australian Open - Yoda Cup 2021

Masks dont do anything other than tell your government that you are ok with them taking away your freedom and choice of how you live your life. Please leave your political opinions out of the TENNIS forum. Thank you

Re: Australian Open - Yoda Cup 2021

Actually, TE, being proud of one's ignorance of science and making false claims based upon that ignorance has long been considered political opinion in the United States.  In most civilized countries, however, that is thought of not as political opinion but rather as merely stupidity.  Perhaps living in the worst police state in the history of the world is what leads some Americans to insist on their "right" to be an idiot.  These morons like to call people who actually think for themselves and/or have a conscience "sheep" when actually they are people, and those calling them sheep are not wolves but lemmings.
