    Green Acres 2019: Strawberries and Cream Lounge

    This is where we come together to sit and eat strawberries and cream, drink Pim's and chat about the players. Feel free to drop by whenever the spirit moves you. We enjoy discussing the players' strengths, weaknesses, color palette preferences, and pratfalls.


    Be forewarned, everyone will be expected to rise if the Queen pays us a visit.

    And to put a US spin on the contest, this is what I think of when somebody mentions Green Acres.

    Is a multi-colored team required or are those that have posted so far just showing off?

    Just showing off. As long as we (contest organizers) can clearly understand which player you pick you can color or not color as you like.

    Yastremska is hoping her evil twin Yastermska does mess up her grass court season again

    She won me a Green Acres medal in the past. What's everyone else's excuse?

    She's lost me several bets and at least two suicide pools... and yet I've come back for more

    Yoort that looks so much neater and nicer than whenever I post lists
    A Canadian Slam winner? Inconceivable!

    Tsisipas delivered for all of us. A solid 6-4 third set.
    Not like I was expecting much from him but he will be dropped as soon as Roger's name is placed in the Halle draw.

    Edit: as will be Zverev.

    I don't know what the heck I was doing late that night, but the team I submitted is not what I have written down on my laptop. It's only a two player difference, but they are a big two and you know which version is doing better. I believe some reckless early trading is in order.
