Mina has made some good results lately, few wins in the challenger tour. One semi appearance, if remember correctly. Maybe he is getting things together? Nice 1st round draw aswell in Laaksonen. Chance to win first tour level match, and hopefully he will.
It has to be said too that Garin doesn't look as promising as he did when he first qualified in Vina Del Mar. He and Quinzi have copied Nadal playing style but don't have his movement they're unable to hit their backhand properly they're often on the back foot hitting it which makes it difficult for them to take advantage in the rally and win it with their forehand.
Some posters were asking why Garin wasn't included in that, "Which of these Young guns will have the most promising career" thread and this is the reason why. Garin just doesn't look that promising at the moment. Maybe that will change in the future but he hasn't really done anything beyond Futures level in over a year to get people to take notice.
Mina is a bit of a blast from the past. A few years ago he was being talked about as the next big thing in French tennis then he did nothing. I wonder if he has finally got his act together. I remember him being quite a flashy player.

Federer had his back issues and...
If only W could be uncancelled and be held without fans as well, since it cannot be postponed to a later date and also cannot be held at an alternate venue!! It seems unfair to have the AO, USO, and FO, but not W, it really hurts players like Rogie a lot (Serena too maybe?)... Your thoughts??
We will continue to simulate the season with the second Grand Slam of 2020 - Roland Garros. The draw for the events will be completely randomized. Qualifiers are randomized as well and the WCs are chosen by me.
