    2012 Around The World : VIP Lounge

    Since the contest covers tournaments all around the world, where better to wait between flights to our next destination than the VIP Lounge.

    While here feel free to talk about your 12-woman team... Drink off a shameful selection... Talk trash about your team (but not TOO much )... Interact with other contest participants... and etc....

    And remember, the juke box from hell will travel to each tournament site, so don't forget to use it!

    Have fun!

    If I could tell which week it was, I might not have gotten my team in this early.

    Patrick,
    Thanks. I already knew that. Mostly I was laughing at myself for remembering that the team was due by Monday, but not paying close enough attention to remember which Monday.
    So far, I don't see any reason to change my team.

    I picked Lisciki because I thought Sharapova will withdraw but it is Lisciki who pulled out...Great start

    YIKES! I also felt like Sharapova might withdraw. She pulled out last year with a virus, and was subbed out of Fed Cup with a cold. I wondered if maybe Paris is a tournament she doesn't like but has to sign up for and axe later.

    I wonder if I'll regret not picking Scheepers.

    I debated on the Sharapova/Lisicki issue for hours. There is still time for Sharapova to w/d as her first match will probably be on Thursday since she has a bye.

    I thought even if Sharapova played, Lisicki might win the rematch. In fact, I filled out the draws for help and put Lisicki into the final.

    However, Lisicki drew Safarova first round, who's made the final here TWICE.

    In the end, I picked neither of them and went with Na Li, which could easily backfire.
