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...

Did it last night.
Commish, simply insert a * in front of the player name on the top-32 input page; the player's name will be colored red on the team submission page.

Thanks, Ace!

meanwhile ... 64 teams hurt by Kvitova, 56 by Pliskova's loss. Some of us had both. UGH!
