I basically tossed all the names up in the air and grabbed whichever ones I could to click on -- too many "ifs' and "scratches" to rely on anyone ---

Ugh. Terrible. Maybe I shouldn't even bother with this if I'm going to keep missing entire weeks.

One habit I need to stop in predictions is assuming a player will do better in an event simply because the event is in their country.

Despite my lousy picks, reading this thread has been extremely encouraging. I feel myself going up up up the leaderboard, even though I've only picked something like 3/8 in every tournament. :D

At 25 she is done
Hard to believe that 1 year ago she was ranked 11th.
