Compton Queen warming up.
Next: Kenin.
Should be another nice practice session. Got to cut down the ugly UEs.

Kiki was an unpleasant surprise.
Thiem also gave me a scare: 2-5 down in the 4th was not what I wanted; feared a 5th set. But he won that set anyway.

So each of my three ATP-guys gave me a rough match. Zverev was better today.
Still 5 members in my team, and not the usual suspects. So the sky is still the limit.

From the teams who have 5 or 6 members, I now am the lowest one it the ranking (67th).

If they survive R3, and Goffin does me a favor vs Nadal (one can only hope), I will start to rise in the standings.

After the Pliskova and Svitolina exits, only 3 teams have the full squad intact.
This is brutal.

Give me ten minutes before posting any more scores.

BTW - Keys' 2nd round win was also posted for her R3 result. I have removed that.

BTW - I am not authorized to read the message regarding adding tier titles. I'd like to know what it says since I'm the one that typically does this. Thanks.
