You originally picked Kerber and Muguruza and they are and always have been on the same side of the draw!
 
Oh my God! *rolls eyes*

What are you talking about? I don't have the same womens' picks as you do! Did you pick Halep d Mladenovic? Secondly, I did not look at your picks before I posted mine a few minutes before the matches started.
 
As for the mens' picks, Nadal was a no-brainer for me long before I saw the draw and once I did look at the draw for the first time, I decided on Nadal d Wawrinka almost instantly.
 
With the women, the most obvious choices were between Muguruza, Mladenovic, Kuznetsova, Svitolina and Halep. But the truth is, about 10 other women could win it as well. I decided to pick Halep as the winner because she has looked the best to me this cc season but she also has a problem with her foot and she's a head case so I wouldn't be surprised if she won the whole thing or flopped in R1. They are all a bunch of basket cases. No sure thing with the women this year.

You have to be stupid to pick Kerber to go all the way on clay even with this uncertain WTA field. Kerber has talked constantly to the press about how she despises playing on clay.
calimero377@gmx.de: May 28 04:28AM -0700

She is the current #1 ... ?
 
Lol

Not everybody can win 10+ slams and be #1 for 300+ weeks! She's experiencing the same problem #1 Murray is.

He forgot Zverev faces Verdasco in the very first round, which could spell trouble. Now if Zverev disposes of Verdasco easily it will say something about his ability to back up his promise and perform under (the newfound) pressure.

He's got Verdasco in the first round and then perhaps cc specialist Cuevas in R3 I think? He doesn't have an easy draw. If the kid can make it to the final, it will be impressive.

Of course the orange clown is right when he kicks NATO countries in the ass who spend less than 2 % of GDP on defense while the USA spent 3.7 %!
 
What the hell is so difficult to understand there for whiny "liberals"?

Yes, Whisper probably enjoys making a fool of himself when assessing Federer. Sampfucker deluxe.

What about Stan? He's nowhere near as consistent as Federer (who is?),
but at his best he's probably better to watch no?
