Crap - missed Wuhan

First two matches in Wuhan Kerber and Kvtivoa go down...guessing going to be some rough scores there - I had Kvitova winning myself.

Picks are up

10 had Kvitova to win, and 8 had Kerber. A couple other did picks early and had their winners already out, so for winners in Wuhan we are down to 1 Sabalenka and 1 Muguruza (and we were after the very first 2 matches.) Interestingly not a single person pick Woz to win.

I also lost my whole Tashkent final (Hibino-Rodina) plus a third semifinalist. Oy. Many others lost finalists and winners too...going to be some bad scores there too.

And Muguruza (and Woz) both lose too...joy!

We do have a 0 and a 1 in Wuhan, but they were early pickers so they have a better excuse than the rest of us.

It is only Wednesday and I have lost 2 out of my 4 predicted winners. BIG day of upsets!

16 - our total combined correct semifinalists for Tashkent :) We do have three Barthel winner pickers left - Bhar11, Jason11E, and kanditoo.

Miles picks in Wuhan deserve mention as well - only one with Wang as semifinalist, and one of three with Kontaveit...plus also had Sabalenka. He has Wang in final, only other possible correct finalists are Sabalenka (3mlm) and Kontaveit (texasniteowl.)

*assuming I looked at predictions right of course*

Oops...I missed a couple picks in Tashkent - Jason11E also had Potpova in final, and JazzNU has Gasparyan in final and winning. That's it for correct finalists there.
