41 teams so far...

We had a late start over here (due to the work on the new site), and adverting the event on other places (i.e., on tennisforum, for instance), was later than usual, so I guess that likely explains the lower turn-out at this moment.

let's see if we gan get to 60 teams by closing time (in about 6 hours).

I can't do any of that team entry.. I am just not strong enough to sit up and do all that. I am barely getting out of bed after 3 days, knocked out flat by a nasty flu.

Ace,

Sorry to hear about your illness.

Re Skan team entries, I think Grav' and Peter Skan are doing the honors. So, you have help in running the show.

As far as the other bugs that are o/s, they don't appear to be significant problems that the Prediction game and the Skan contest cannot continue. Minor inconveniences that can be addressed later at some point. You've done a great job handling the transition alone and at significant personal cost (near 1k for the new site, didn't know that). Yet, the most important thing is for you to regain your health. Get well soon and take care....

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.

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).
