  1. When is the first realistic medal chance of the Games for your nation? First day, Paula Pareto in Judo (48kg) and Lucas Guzmán in taekwondo (58Kg) When do you think your nation will get their first medal and in which event? If it´s not the first day, then probably around the second weekend when tennis and sailing begin their finals. If not by then, during the last week for most team sports finals. Is there a bumper day for your nation where you expect more than one or a few medals to come? If so, what day? We don´t have that many med
  2. Women´s field hockey team winning gold for the first time and Paula Pareto winning another medal in her last competition.
  3. Was it intentional? I read that she couldn't enter, but I don't know. Seems odd if it was tactical.
  4. Don’t know if fun is the word, but some athletes i like and want them to do well that I can remember now (among others): Athletics: Allyson Felix (if qualified) Ivet Lalova Angelica Bengtsson Sam Kendricks Maria Lasitskene Yulia Levchenko Yaroslava Mahuchikh Airine Palsyte (if qualified) Mutaz Eza Barshim Canoeing: Isaquias Queiroz dos Santos Fencing: Ana Maria Popescu Gymnastics: Larisa Iordache Judo: Daria Bilodid
  5. I think McIntosh isn´t swimming the 400 in trials.
  6. For the frontrunners are still Santiago Lange and Cecilia Carranza. But the tennis federation nomimated Del Potro and Nadia Podoroska. Decision to be made by tuesday or wednesday next week. I still can´t believe Del Potro will play in Tokio, so it would be a total surprise if they choose him.
  7. That was odd from Teichmann because she is playing these weeks after missing Roland Garros. Tig and Zidansek are also out, but so far not many withdrawals in the women's draw.
  8. I missed it, but Shapovalov also out. 5 of the current top 15 ATP players won´t be in Tokyo (Nadal, Thiem, Bautista Agut, Ruud, Shapo). Still a few more days to withdraw, so brace yourselves.
  9. Could be wrong, but I think there is a 3 day quarantine upon arrival.
  10. So the qualification period ended today and this monday rankings will be used. Here's a tentative list i saw in Wikipedia, don’t know if one of you guys is behind it. I think there will be changes, it excludes some players due fed cup/davis cup nominations that I believe just were not selected at the time, like Karatsev I guess. Also other players will opt out, for example Federico Delbonis is included and he already said he won't go to Tokyo. I guess we'll have to wait a few days till confirmations from ITF.–_Qual
  11. Well, at least Jankovic and Radwanska can say they faced Serena in their finals, but the other ones... Myskina Roland Garros has been quite random for years as there hasn't been a dominant clay player since Henin retired and after Serena and Sharapova's peak passed. Halep could have been, but keeps losing to teenagers Wimbledon, on the other hand, is the less random GS. I think the last non GS finalist that won a title was Kvitova in 2011 (and was already in SF the year before) and before that Sharapova in 2004.
  12. Yeah, but definitely less of a surprise than Bartoli (former Wimbledon finalist) and Lisicki (1 SF and 2 QF prior to that final), who both had beaten Serena in Wimbledon before the final. BTW, Barty-Vondrousova and Stephens-Keys were more unexpected IMO.
  13. As a top 10 doubles player, Polasek is directly qualified and can choose any partner with a top 300 singles or doubles ranking, so why wouldn't they play?
