    So we'll get to learn about some new tournaments with crappy websites And say goodbye to a few others. Interesting change.

    This website might help with entry lists for all the tournaments - http://www.livetennis.it/
    It is going to be interesting with almost every player in the top 100 playing at least one week out of the four how people put their teams together.

    Nothing more confusing than having a draw with Sousa in entry list, then him being gone and Souza in instead.

    This contest really helps give you an appreciation for how some of these clay courters stay so high in rankings..there are quite a few playing 3 or all 4 clay court tournaments for this contest...and I have probably more of them then I should

    Re: Around The World 2017: VIP Lounge

    Here's my totally unofficial player count...I did this at work and got interrupted so there is a very low chance that I didn't make any mistakes. Time to see who we screwed over by picking, like our most popular C pick.

    19 teams

    A: Dimitrov (16), Thiem (13), Cilic (10), Tsonga (9), Goffin (6), Nadal (2), Wawrinka (1)

    B: Ramos Vinolas (14), A Zverev (14), Karlovic (9), Bautista Agut (8), Simon (3), Verdasco (2), Pouille (1), Ferrer (1), Gasquet (1), Carreno Busta (1), Triocki (1), Johnson (1), Cuevas (1)

    C: Evans (12), Lorenzi (10), Sousa (7), Brown (4), Belucci (4), Khacanov (3), Haase (2), Fognini (2), Stuff (2), Paire (1), Mahut (1), Seppi (1), Dolgopolov (1), Medvedev (1), Jaziri (1), Coric (1), Schwarztman (1), Kuznetsov (1), Delbonis (1)

    D: Zeballos (11), Montiero (10), Dzuhumur (6), Garcia Lopez (5), Chardy (4), Olivo (3), Pella (3), Elias (3), Youzhny (2), Estrella Burgos (2), Tiafoe (1), Anderson (1), Istomin (1), Berlocq (1), Harrison (1)

    Re: Around The World 2017: VIP Lounge

    Glad to see many others like me may have gone overboard with people playing all the clay tournaments. The entry list for B'sA's that just came out has all but three people chosen by at least one team...and one of the other three was not eligible (Melzer.) Nishikori is one of the other two and I wouldn't be surprised if someone was trading him in.

    At least Cilic made it to the second round.



    Congratulations to Brown pickers.

    Re: Around The World 2017: VIP Lounge

    And it was looking pretty sketchy against BYE for a bit too. That said, I was having a tough time deciding what A player to dump first...made the decision a little easier.

    PS...trades thread?

    Well. Choosing to sacrifice week 1 points to avoid burning trades on Rotterdam worked out SO well...

    Re: Around The World 2017: VIP Lounge

    Picking Thiem and Cilic was pretty much sacrificing points as well.

    Re: Around The World 2017: VIP Lounge

    I'm guessing texasniteowl and mysterX will be our week 1 leaders, or at least very close to it - the only two who took the Tsonga/Goffin/Dimitrov trio for their A team - all 3 are into the semis now, while no other A player even won a match.

    TFW half your team is out or goes out to injury and you DIDN'T even pick Nishikori. Sheesh.
