You just dropped your first player. Not bad.

Pouille should have reached the final if you see what is left in the bottom section.

Staying in Tier1 becomes hard now...

Sharapova losing helps me though...

Given her form coming in? Hah! She lost first round how many times?

Petra lost badly in Toronto and Cinci.. So everyone stayed away from her.
Looks like she is winning the USO. The way she is playing, I don't think there is anyone left in the draw to stop her.

Well, I had Svitolina on my team instead of Keys, so looks like I might be done now since I'm 2 players down.

Good luck to everyone!

Thanks... Yeah, many teams lost early.. Konta, A.Zverez ... that was bad luck.

No one's got Carreno ...
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

We are at the SF, I have onlyone playeer, and still a good possibility of ending Tier2 if Nadal wins the title...


I am impressed by Hawkgirl and Tonylovestennis: both still have their three WTA-players in the race....
Unfortunately, neither of them has an ATP-player left.

Rex still in the lead.. GO FOR IT, REX!!!!

#ed_op#font color="brown"#ed_cl#@ #ed_op#b#ed_cl#Graveller#ed_op#/b#ed_cl#:#ed_op#/font#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#&nbsp;#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#i#ed_cl#Nah........ With Roger losing, my hopes of finishing at the top were severely dashed. I'm only up by 14 on Pandacris with the difference being Keys. Pione Sisto and Cross-Court Rally have 3 players left, I only have 2 and I'm up only by 25 points on PS and 44 points on CCR. PS, specifically, has a clear advantage to overtake me "if" Venus and Keys both win their respective matches. CCR can clearly jump past me as well. Although I have Sloane on my team, she's at the 6th spot, while Sloane is at the 4th spot and if she dismisses Venus who is the 9th seed she'll get the bonus points, plus if Coco at #2 on his team dismisses Keys as the 14th seed, then that's even more points in his/her favor, in addition to having Rafa as his #1 player on his team, while Rafa is #2 on my team. #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#However, if Rafa, Venus and Keys lose in the semis, then CCR and Texasniteowl (only 111 pts behind me), will leap ere me as well even yet, for they have Coco on their team and ranked high (#2 and #3, respectively), while not considering the final. #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#Jema at #8 has a shot, if JMDP dismisses Rafa and reaches the final where he has a clear shot to win the event. Jema is only 157 points behind me and my lead can be overtaken.&nbsp; #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#There are also some teams in the 2nd tier (Central Park) that have 3 players left. They have hope.&nbsp; #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#Lastly, it's not likely I'm holding the lead with Rafa having a tough match with JMDP and Sloane playing Venus. So, today is the last day for me to hold this spot and it's all right. Finishing in the top-10 is ok.&nbsp; #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/i#ed_cl#
