Well, I might as well not have bothered with Istanbul. Crashed and burned on that one!

I knew we were in trouble when that was how you posted it.
Stuttgart - Halep's loss to CoCo (congrats to Skatingfan for picking that), coupled with Mugu and Kerber retiring, mean that only 4 people have their champion remaining (3 Svitolina, 1 Garcia).
Budapest is a disaster almost of "WTA small level tournament in China" levels. I am pretty sure we are going to have at least one "2" for score. Nobody got the 1st semifinalist and at most 1 person can get the 2nd. The 3rd and 4th still have some hope.
Barcelona - everyone picked Rafa (nobody was stupid enough to go against him like I did last week in a hope to be counterculture but forgetting it was a Masters tourney), but over half had Thiem. So that loss will potentially shake up the results

And Svitolina out, meaning the only one still with a possible winner...picked Garcia for contest schizo purposes after trading her out in TSIP.

Also, I think me and Dave are the only ones with our finalist left (Pliskova.)

In other tournaments:

Budapest - Only fastbackss has a possible winner (Bedene) with 10 others having a possible finalist (Seppi)

Barcelona - Everyone has Nadal winning but only fastbackss has another possible finalist (Carreno-Busta)

Istanbol - Only mysterX has a possible winner (Begu) and another possible finalist (Sakkari). jtContinental has a possible finalist as well (Hercog).

Not the best week for predictions.
