Oh, Dabrowski is trying out Fernandez for Tokyo? I have a feeling Andreescu won't want to play doubles so Dabrowski will pick between Leylah and Sharon. Fichman came back specifically for the Olympics so that would be an heartbreaking decision.

Maybe Andreescu wanted to play with Fichman?

Hard to make an assumption since Fichman isn't playing here but she's a better doubles player than Leylah and she beat her comfortably at the AO. Hopefully Fernandez can get her singles ranking up by the cut off so it doesn't have to be one or the other.

Hoping Sharon will play with Bianca if that’s the case, but I am surprised Gaby is leaning towards Fernandez. Gaby and Sharon kind of came up around the same time and for a while played doubles together at the challenger level so they obviously know each other very well. As young up and comers they beat Errani and Vinci at the Canadian Open when they were number 1 in the world as well so it’s an unusual choice. Either way I just hope Fichman can play at the Olympics as this was her goal.

It makes sense to split Andreescu and Dabrowski so you get two teams.

Fichman will be the winner if Andreescu plays doubles with her but she will be the biggest loser if she stays at home or Bianca picks up another injury in Tokyo and decide to focus on winning a medal in singles. Scenario B is very likely giving Andreescu's history.

Bouchard may have been an option for Dabrowski had she played through the clay season but that's unrealistic now. They almost beat Safarova/Strycova in Rio too.

I'm just surprised Dabrowski didn't pick Fichman.
