    2021 18+ 4.0M USTA League Nationals Predictions

    I only count "new" S's, i.e. those who have never been rated (as far as I can tell). I don't count guys who are S's just because their previous rating expired. I assume this is the basis you're looking for. Intermountain stands apart, with 10 such S's. The other teams range from 0 to 4, with...

    3.5 18+ Nationals Predictions

    Akin to a queen sacrifice in chess! Risky strategy but elegant if it works. Been waiting a long time to be in position to run that gambit.:happydevil:

    40+ 4.0M Nationals Predictions

    40+ 4.0M Nationals Predictions

    Yeah they’re not from Houston, NOHO, or Dallas and I guess that does make a difference. At 0-2 they should be out of it, has a 2-2 team ever made it to Sunday?

    18+ 4.5M Nationals Predictions

    And I'll go with SoCal, Florida, Mid Atlantic, and a PNW/New England virtual dead heat. SoCal looks especially strong.

    18+ 4.5M Nationals Predictions

    You could say that about some others as well
  14. N

    40+ 4.0M Nationals Predictions
