Barty hurts six teams....
and Tiko lost both Kyrgios and Barty....

Yes - Francoise Abanda wins Round 1.
go firmly to the window
and listen with deep emotion,
but not with the whining, the pleas of the coward;
listen-your final pleasure-to the voices,
to the exquisite music of that strange procession

Abanda facing Ostapenko next. Why? Don't ruin my Skan team.
Redo the draw please. Abanda, please go beat someone else. I want you to win your next match, but not at the expense of my Skan team. :(

I know that Busta (and Goffin) were out before the event wasstarted, but what do we do with players that drop out like 2 or 3 days before the event? Remove them from the list anyway?

Anyway, Team Graveller got into R2 undamaged....#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#I was disappointed in the RG Skan that my streak of 11 consecutive slams without losing a player in R1 had come to an end (from Wimb2014 up to AO2017)...#ed_op#br#ed_cl#A.Zverev failed me.#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#But I gave him an opportunity to make up for it, and he delivered this time. #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#

#ed_op#font color="brown"#ed_cl#@ #ed_op#b#ed_cl#Joylan1#ed_op#/b#ed_cl#:#ed_op#/font#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl# I think no Commish was available to enter the scores during the matches. Sorry.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#If you want to join to help enter the scores,  you are more that welcome. It's pretty easy. #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#Ostapenko escaped a bad match .....my team has a short break. :)#ed_op#br#ed_cl#It would have been a disaster had she lost. I have already dropped an Australian dude and Kvitova.. Already down to 4 players. and the 2nd round is not even over.  LOL#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#I think Giorgi will finish off my team by sending Ostapenko packing. :( :( #ed_op#br#ed_cl#Ostapenko must have the worst percentage of landing first serve. That was some ugly shitttt of a game today.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#

Good idea: i guess that Ace could program that option...
