^^ ROSA team is actually just Ceze and me so you can join! Residents of St Anne, St Anne being a famous psychatric hospital in Paris, name chosen just cos we're slightly nuts around here (slightly I said )

We may stumble and fall but shall rise again; it should be enough if we did not run away from the battle.

Look who is back!!!!!!
Yeah, we ended replacing you last year since you didn't sign up. Not sure if KC signs up for this year or not. If not, I think we still want the 4th member. It's up to geewhiz.

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
Be kind.
Always.

Re: 2013 Tennis Poker: sign up here! Late entrants with 8th leg team are welcome

Well, a mental asylum sounds just like my kind of place plus, my top poker player is French! So Team ROSA sounds great. Also, ROSA = PINK in Spanish, which I find a most excellent colour for my poker team

Hey Kuilli! It's been a while geewhiz reminded me of the deadline - I see you two keep choosing actual good players for your teams (where's the fun in that! ).

Doc, I am happy to join any team, I guess you can figure it out for us!

Obviously, it's hard to turn down a mental asylum. So good luck!! We plan on kicking your butt, of course.

We are kind of competitive and like to win. Hence, the good players most of the times.

I have already done my part by making Bea sign up again. I think we would like a 4th member, but probably not a 5th. Both KC and Bea have been excellent team members.

I was quite disappointed to see you have chosen only one retired (-from singles) player and no mediocre Spanish.

Re: 2013 Tennis Poker: sign up here! Late entrants with 8th leg team are welcome

I only choose players that amuse me, and as of now, sadly, there are no amusing Spanish players... with the possible exception of Martínez Sánchez, who is playing with Huber this year and hence, has quite a bit of upside

(It is also possible that I don't really understand this game, seeing everyone else's choices )

Is this thread where people do the trash talking as well? The good thing about my team is that if I beat *any* team, I get bragging rights for years ! Watch out for my low-balling!

What? Geewhiz picks poor Azerbeidjanian (or how do you call them? ) girls with no ranking!

So are any of my team members (Fedcup, doubles) coming back this year? It seems that I scare my partners away each year

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Yeah, but you have inside connections.
Four member team sounds good to me. So lets hope KC comes back since Bea already listed herself in the asylum.

Martínez Sánchez is very unmemorable (is that a word? my English is getting worse). I saw her play in Fed Cup, but I still can't recognise her from the pics. But with Huber, there is always potential.

Nah, you have been doing fine with your low combinations.

There is trash talking allowed in every tennis poker thread. But the amount of trash talking has decreased a lot after Kart left.

She has a talent for that.

You are quite scary with all the feathers and everything. I think we need to give you a haircut.

Sorry to break in but I think you just have an issue with Spanish players. And several issues with Huber of course.

I may not dare to show you
I might just walk away or crawl under another rock
It's so tempting

I had no issues with Vivi and Magui and Conchi and Arantxa (not your Arantxa, of course) and some others. Perhaps it's only the current Spanish players then. No comment about Huber.

I'm back in, Doc! Sorry I'm late. I'll have to replace Clijsters. Give me Stephens instead. Watch out for leg two!

Didn't see this reply. At least we have a couple of different players.

Players:

Arvidsson / Bartoli / Petrova / Raymond / Vinci

Thanks

Hi Bea, great to hear from you!

For the first leg, I'll let you in with your last valid team, which was:

Bartoli / Llagostera-Vives / Martinez-Sanchez / Raymond / Suarez-Navarro

Your new team will be considered from the 2nd leg on.

Thank you for coming back and good luck!
