We have the opposite problem Murreee, my men's team's struggled but my women's team's 19th. It looks like we went similar, only differences we have left are Sloane and Anderson, the former who I'm counting on to carry  me. That and if Pliskova wins the title

So, Dtrain didn't make a team for US Open?

Re: Yoda Cup - US Open 2017

Imagine what these two could have done in the Yoda Cup Overall standings had they been around for all 4 Slams!
