The Suicide Pools came up with the name first, but for this contest, it truly is a Loser's Lounge. This is where you come to celebrate your losers. So feel free to curse or praise your team, or discuss how the contest is going.

Donskoy and Marterer both lost...TAT is collectively 0-2 (In the good way.)

And congrats to the other 11 on you on making top 12...1/4 chance for all of us to medal, can't beat those odds!

Unfortunately for us Tomic isn't eligible. He qualified in Metz and promptly lost his first match :)

Hey, this is great so far!! 5 of my 6 C & D players did what they were supposed to do and lost! Love it!

Fabio doing what we wanted him to do today as well. Maybe every contest should be played with Greatest Loser rules.

Dilemma dilemma...I really want to trade one of my d players and chase some points this week. On the other hand, we only get 6 trades and there is a long way to go!

I don't like how week 2 is going... 3 of my players were on entry lists then didn't play, and my only two first round losers "retired" which could be bad for future tournaments. Not sure why, only new links I could find were not English (not that I looked very long or hard.)

Unfortunately for us Tomic isn't eligible. He qualified in Metz and promptly lost his first match :)

And this week he makes semis...maybe he will squeeze out enough points to be back in the top 100 and eligible next year? Live rankings have him up to 102!

Waylandboy deserves mention for being the only one brave enough to trade in people still in qualifying...went 1 for 2 - Daniel didn't make it in, McDonald did. So he was actually cheering for them to actually win today (how un Greatest Loser like! :D )

I had Daniel already on my team and considered grabbing his opponent to "guarantee" a D player, but figured it'd somehow not work out so backed out of that idea.

Of course, it may not help if MCDonald keeps winning - he took out Raonic today!

I'll be clever and add a D qualifier this week I thought...

At least in the last two matches Kukushkin took out other people on my team but still...this is the nomral equivalent of adding an A player and having them lose in round 1.

EDIT: Looks like his play got him an SE next week, so it may work out after all!

Too bad no one had Jaziri...would've been fun to see someone suddenly get a LL on Wednesday (although it would be no better than R2 points.)
