Got a message from a fan Jema, a Skan contestant from TF.
His team didn't make it to the official list here. It was simply missed.. it happens.
The teams before and after his post made it in.
I'll go ahead and add him.

There is a reason his team was rejected... but we didn't tell him.

WTA crew didn't make the cut. Total ranking has to be at least 15.
Stephens, Ka.Pliskova, Kerber: 5 + 7 + 2 =14 Not enough.

ATP crew:
Djokovic, A.Zverev, Coric: 1+ 4 + 12 = 17 .. OK.

Since we could have helped correct the mistake by letting him know, I suggested, as a compromise, to lose one of her WTA player and replace her with a player that has already lost, but whose ranking will take the total to 15.

Good for me.

we found a compromise. He accepted to trade one his WTA players for Petkovic for a manufactured 0 points. (7-5 6-7 6-7).

Nice solution :-)

Serena still to play her R2 (and she is not in my team), but it is nice to see myself appear in Tier 1 with a complete team after (almost) 4 days of action.
And Novak (my #1 seed) still has to play too.

78 teams. Pretty decent!

Round 1 Snapshot

66 of 78 teams survived Round 1 fully intact [good for 60 Victory pts].
Only 19 points separate 1st and 10th place
Unusually, several posters earned Q points in Round 1 [for Berdych and for Venus]
Leader was Tenedab [313 pts], followed by skytennis [306 pts] and LewisCarroll [304 pts]
Good old RandomSkan notched in at 73rd place

Round 2 Snapshot

53 of 78 teams have survived Round 2 fully intact [good for 180 accumulative Victory pts].
Only 36 points separate 1st and 10th place
skytennis moves to top spot [639 pts], followed by long-time contestant nadals [632 pts] and LewisCarroll stays in 3rd [628 pts]
Mighty RandomSkan falls to 75th place
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

Round 3 Snapshot

Down to 24 fully intact teams out of 78 contestants [good for 360 accumulated Victory pts].
54 points now separate the #1 and # 10 spots
Leader was long-time competitor nadals [1058 pts], followed by ever competitive LaughingCavalier [1050 pts] and a tie @ 1044 pts between TerraStar18 and FEBravo
Nadals topped the Quality pts with 53, and FEBravo led the Domination points with 674
Poor RandomSkan has tumbled to last place. Everyone expected that except him, of course

Round 4 Snapshot

All 24 teams that had been fully intact after R3 lost at least 1 player. Brutal! No one has the max of 660 Victory points, but two posters [TennisAnyone74 and LaughngCavalier] have 610 V pts.
Excluding RandomSkan, the point spread ranges from 627 to 1448
Our new leader is long time Skanner TennisAnyone74 [1448 pts], followed by Laughing Cavalier [1426 pts] and Ace2Ace [1412 pts].
Nadals continues to lead the Q pts race with 128, while Ace2Ace tops the D pts with 800
That miserable dog RandomSkan is well ensconced in last place, but seems somewhat oblivious to his plight.
