It's very difficult to know what to say. Nathaliia, you worked your socks off to get this tournament started, and GoBlakeGo, you have performed excellently since taking over.
But I can't put my hand on my heart and say it's been a satisfying tournament. Why? Because of the players. There have been far too many no picks from ....., no picks from ....., and that's something no manager can control.
My partner and I are in the doubles final, and will pick up at least 63 ranking points after the following results:-
First round - Bye
Quarter-final - no picks from one opponent
Semi-final - no picks from one opponent.
Some of the worst picking I've done since I started TT, and I reach a final.
I really hope that there will be hard-fought finals Saturday and Sunday, singles and doubles, and that there will be worthy winners.
Good luck everyone, and thanks Nathaliia and GoBlakeGo for your patience.
