    Re: 2015 - A Month in the Sun: The Yarra River Lounge

    I almost traded Almagro out and put Kukushkin in, but didn't want leave myself with only two trades for the AO. Kicking myself now!

    Not hard to tell it's a pre-slam week

    This week's ATP finalists:

    Mannarino - on 0 teams
    Veseley - 5 teams
    Kukushkin - 0 teams
    Triocki - 0 teams

    WTA Finalists:

    Brengle - 0 teams
    Watson - 0 teams
    Kvitova - 7 teams (Sydney winner)
    Ka Pliskova - 0 teams

    Dave G, Martini4me and Tenedab actually had 2 finalists this week! Shouldn't be too hard to guess which.

    I've never ever heard of Vesely before this week. What has he done to be on 5 TATers radar?

    Well he's never lost in a final as a qualifier against a qualifier for one!

    I didn't know about him either...so checking him out...hes young and tall (good reason to take a flyer on him there)...beat Monfils at Wimbledon last year...not much else standing out to me in his profile. So good on the five of them!

    If I had to make a real guess...I'd say it's because he was playing both weeks.

    That is why I took him.

    Vesley gave Murray a scare last year at IW, I believe.

    He was junior #1 in 2011 and at one stage last year the youngest player in the top 100. Also beat Monfils at Wimbledon last year. He has at least a top 20 potential I think.

    I seem to recall some conversations about Vesely in last year's Challenger threads, of the will-he-catch-up-to-Thiem variety, seeing how they're the same age (and Vesely turned pro earlier).

    Tons of people will have at least 3/4 of Serena, Sharapova, Federer, and Djokovic. It looks like the B category players will factor in heavily, especially since about half of us are only one unique QFist away from medal position.

    If Hewitt wins tonight, somehow I'll still have all of my A-B-C teams...I consider that a minor miracle.

    Sharapova's near upset would've been a big help for me as I'm riding the Halep train.

    Besides my As, I only have Muguruza, Anderson, and Garcia-Lopez, so I'll need big results from them.

    Looks like trading out Wozniacki was wise...but I also traded out Vika so maybe that'll hurt me later on. She's clearly the favorite in her 1/8 now I'd say.

    And look at the jinx I threw on Hewitt!
