Losing Halep from my team, was not a good thing. But my 'weaker' 3rd picks got into R2, and that is more important: Mertens and Tsitsipas.

And Mertens has a good draw: Lapko in R2, and Strycova in R3.
And her R4 could be vs Stephens - whom she defeated a few weeks ago.

So it is up to her to deliver now. If she loses in week#1, she only has herself to blame.

Holy Cow - the fates are playing hard with RandomSkan. Top 3 picks gone after the first round.

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

So apart from Halep, the rest of my team got into R2....

So far the damage in the Skan was mainly for those who picked Halep.
The 14 other players that were selected by at least ten contestants all survived.

I don't expect major upsets today...

Well-spotted!

I looked at the table where scores are noted, and I saw that there was a "space" missing between the scores for set 3 and set 3... as a result, the calculation went nuts :-)

should be OK now.
