I think the other crucial question is, how big is the doubles draw? Not that clay results have been good, but let's hope that somebody can go further than the 1st round or two. 

 


 It is a good question,  have a feeling this one is back up to 64 draw size, men and women, but am not certain...

Yeah they are both 64 draws. Mens Doubles starts Tuesday and Womens starts Wednesday, with finals on Saturday 10th (mens) and Sunday 11th (womens).

No mixed, of course.

It's an optimistic 8 from me. I don't view Dans draw as a complete disaster, Kei has been struggling too.


 I have gone for 8 as well, but only 1 of us has actually voted. The other votes are more pessimistic, all the singles are hard to call I think, doubles too. 8 is optimistic, but if just 1 person goes deep in, this could be hopelessly wrong.

 The doubles draw isnt out yet is it, or is it?

A voting range of 5 to 10 wins so far. Hope the doubles draw is kind.

Dont like going blind with no doubles draw but I'm going to go 9. Mens singles 1, womens Jo to get 2, mens doubles 6 over the event.

It feels very foolhardy though as realistically I think it will be lower.

Given the general clay court form so far (Liam excepted), I just can t be anything but pessimistic so 4 only I am afraid.

I really, really, really hope that I am wrong!

Hard to guess the doubles, but I'm going to go for 8, but wouldn't be at all surprised if it was lower, maybe as low as 5 or 6 cry

Oh, for Pete's sake, someone has to go for the optimistic

So I went for double figures - 10.

Forgot that mixed wasn't included (not a great start) but you never know .....

If we only end up with 3, then my useless prediction will be the least of things to upset me!

Seems we "coincide" a lot having both gone for 10 in the US open.

I was going to close the vote tonight but with no doubles draws yet, I'll leave it a day or two, no harm

Aren't the first Brits in action today ?  Some might see it as an advantage to know the results of R1 matches prior to making their vote.

 Obviously it would be, but with no doubles draw ...

 

Also, it's just a game I guess?!
