    The Greatest Loser 2017: Loser's Lounge

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

    Do we get a tournament list? Because the Guadalajara Open, The Chichicastenango invitational and the Wang Deng Fuhn Cup will be played during these days and I want to know if I can pick from there

    I've been good picking men to win so far this year so I'm not sure if it's a good or bad thing that this contest is men this year.

    Man, we are good. D-team favorite Istomin hadn't won a main tour hardcourt match since Dubai until today...

    Shouldn't this be called the 'Winner's' Lounge?

    And Baghdatis one game away from joining them in the semis. That would be my entire D team! Three semifinalists in one tournament, all D team. Last month in THRNY I don't think I had 3 semifinalists in one week, let alone an entire freaking D team. I could never get three D semifinalists if I tried.

    Meanwhile the top three seeds here didn't win a single match combined. The tennis fantasy gods are not without their sense of humor.

    Three finalists this week...gotta be my most all year in any of these contests.

    Also, feels weird to look at a draw, see your player against Tomic...and be disappointed.
