Trade 1: Out: Kerber In: Ihavnta Clue

The plan was pick up Serena Willams. But since I already have Simona Halep, I decided to pick someone from the bottom half. But the bottom half looks like a real mess. There are a fair number of category A players that could either win or go out in the first round. So,

Out: Kerber In: Venus Williams

I need Venus to retroactively move up a couple ranks for that trade.

So,

It's funny because Venus has a first round bye while a few A players do not.

For the contest, we used the rankings that came out before the Australian Open, and I expect that Dubai is using the ranking that came out after the Australian Open.
I had noticed that Venus had been seeded higher that Jankovic, and forgot that Jankovic was a category A player, Venus being seeded higher didn't make her a category A player.

p.s. I think your trade of Venus for Peng will pay out well.

I probably should be trading Kerber out instead (watch he lose round 1 to Vika) ... but the draw gods have decided I will do it this way:

Trade 3: Petkovic OUT, Sharapova IN

New Total: 148

Cancelling this and redoing trade in later post.

According to the world clock, I believe the 3:30 PM start time in Doha, would equate to a 7:30 AM EST, & a 4:30 AM PST time for the deadline.

Well if I had two trades left (ie if I hadn't had to waste one trading out Serena) this would be easy and I could add both Ivanovic and Errani and relax. But I don't so I have to choose one...I think more people will have Errani so I'll play it "safe".

Trade 4: Sharapova OUT, Errani IN

I'm an idiot. Thought we had only 3 trades. I was never going to win this but I really wish I had made a trade at least last week to improve my pitiful showing this time around. Anyway -

Trade 1: Halep OUT, Ivanovic IN
Trade 2: Kvitova OUT, Errani IN
Trade 3: Venus OUT, Pavlyuchenkova IN
Trade 4: Pliskova OUT, Garcia IN
