    Why does this exo feel so lousy to me? Is there any doubt who will win? The "World" team simply is no match against "Europe".
    If they had it as a mixed event, then you could see some balance. I know that the women are playing serious tennis in Asia but if the "World" had Naomi, Bianca, Sloane or Ashley, then they could be competitive.

    I don't even know if I will watch it (it will be on down here).

    I have no plans to watch it. There are some nice pics out though.

    For me, because if it's not the blowout it should be then it proves it's somewhat rigged - which I'd expect from an exo, but then don't tell me it's a pure competition. Also, because there's a heavy stench of Roger Privilege (I like Federer but not happy they left out the women or that they made it an ATP invitational or that it's ridiculously expensive).

    I don't feel like watching a bunch of boring matches for the few moments of good entertainment. I'll see the highlights.

    Kind of hope some of them do.

    So the two best non-European players (Kei and Schwartzman), one of them going into the quarters of the USO were not called in favor of Raonic, Sock and a bunch of others who failed to make it to the second week of the last slam?

    This reeks.

    It is invitational, so it's possible that Kei and Schwartzman turned it down (Schwartzman did participate last year). Next in order: Anderson (injured), Isner, FAA, Raonic, Kyrgios, Fritz, De Minaur, Edmund, Shapovalov

    Although they have a Coach's choice, I think the invites are based on ranking, so that suggests that some of the folks declined to participate. Sock is obviously a Coach's choice for the doubles.

    Did McEnroe pick the team himself? (Never mind, see it answered above.)

    PS it only reeks if you make the effort to sniff it which I'm not doing
    A Canadian Slam winner? Inconceivable!
