Re: Yoda Cup - US Open 2019

I thought Berdych had a good draw and maybe there was enough left in the tank for one more run at a 'Slam. I was completely wrong. I was going to take Kyrgios with that pick, but he's burned me so many times before, so I didn't. Other than that, the only question for my men's team was Thiem or Nishikori. I really struggled with that one, but I went with Thiem.

The women's team was an absolute nightmare to pick. I must've spent an hour and a half on it, and even as I look at now, I'm still not sure about most of the picks. There are so many Grand Slam winners with low seeds who could get hot at any second or continue to stay cold. Who knows?

Thought I might have been the only one to lash out and take a chance on Andreescu, good to see Tenedab also has some confidence in her.

It was a VERY tough choice between her and Halep for me. If she were in any other section of the draw, I would've easily taken her. I like her game a lot.
