Australian Open contest 2022

Let's put this thread up early!  Keep picks until just before the event since there will probably be more than a few last minute withdrawals due to Covid.

Re: Australian Open contest 2022

Even though I picked the men better (for once) with 6 quarterfinalists to your 4, my terrible women's picks undid me.  Even then, I might have had a chance if Barty lost, but your spot on picks of BOTH biggest losers won you the contest even before either of the finals have been played.

I am half wondering whether Barty will win in a blowout, or whether she will let the situation to get her and let the latter-day inheritor of Lleyton Hewitt's spirit, Danielle Collins, win.  Barty is the champion that everyone seems to want, but Collins may be the champion that everyone needs.
