I can't help but think I am being robbed. I am the only player who team is fully intact and I am only in third place

Your players are not winning dominant enough...and points for advancing are limited in the first round.
I checked it: it is all correct...

#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 also double checked earlier since you are the only one with the whole team intact at this stage. I thought there was a mistake in the scoring.... But no... #ed_op#br#ed_cl#Congrat for a great selection!!!!#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#Yes, all the scores are correct. As Graveller said, what is hurting your team right now is the players' positions.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#As a test, for any member of your team, check the total other&nbsp; teams are getting for the same position. The numbers are the same.&nbsp;It's all about the Domination points. Eventually, you will rise to the top if they keep winning.#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#I don't know how you avoided Pliskova and Kvitova.. :) Can you explain?#ed_op#br#ed_cl#Everyone has at least one of them. You got some crystal ball? :)

I am just being done dramatic, although I think it must favor men. As they can collect more dominstion points for more sets compare to the women's.

#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#&nbsp;no ... we fixed that problem years ago.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#Men and Women are graded on 'normalized sets'. Meaning every match is converted to a 3-set match, before we apply the points.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#So men and women scores are treated with the same weight.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#But what you are saying was true in the early days of the game. Men were getting more points. Not any more.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#"Equal Pay" is real in the Skan Contest. :)#ed_op#br#ed_cl#For instance, Coco in position 1 on any team brings in 222 points. She is dominating.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#Federer, in the same position, collect 195 points for his teams. It's all about who is dominating when&nbsp; the match is converted to 3-set.#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#You can see all the Contributions for each player at any position, if you click on the "#ed_op#b#ed_cl#players' contributions#ed_op#/b#ed_cl#" link at the bottom of the Teams Page.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#You can double-check the scores by clicking on the "#ed_op#b#ed_cl#Match Scores#ed_op#/b#ed_cl#" link at the same location.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#
