    So, I may have had a good 1st week, but I've been traveling since and not had a chance to check in. And I just missed making trades for this week too. So look for me to drop even further!

    Tomic actually won...yay! I almost traded out Sosua when I saw he was playing Bernie, but no need.

    One of my favorite parts of Greatest Loser is you get immediate feedback if you made a good trade or not. I already know adding Verdasco worked out well this week.

    I very nearly did a Sousa for Sugita trade this week when I saw Sousa drew Tomic. At that point Sousa was not in next week's draw.

    Now, Sousa is in and Sugita is still playing this week. That was nearly a waste of a trade and big loss of points.

    Shanghai is a Sunday start, so expect a deadline late Saturday/early Sunday US time.

    Ugh...expect a before qualifying finishes deadline Adding one of them would be the ultimate all or nothing trade.

    Only 2 of the first 9 matches are main draw...just enough to prevent us from being able to see who qualifies

    So Chardy qualified for the three of us that added him...and drew the Chinese wild card of course (who has no ATP level wins this year.)

    Of my three guys in qualifying, the two I kept lost, and the one I traded out won. It's gonna be a long week.

    Re: The Greatest Loser 2017: Loser's Lounge

    So...I'm back from my trip finally. The Bad news: As expected, I have dropped in the rankings since Week 1. I did not get back in time to make trades for this week in Shanghai. And seriously ... Goffin had to go and win twice. He was supposed to lose for me!

    The good news: I still have all 6 trades available to use in weeks 5, 6, and 6. AND...by some miracle, 8 of my original team are playing Shanghai! I only have 4 players sitting this week out! Yay! I might have a decent showing after all.

    Oops...I mean I never doubted Chardy for a second. Qualifying to lose to a winless player is pretty much the pinnacle of what you can do in Greatest Loser.

    Oh yeah. NOW Istomin loses in first round after I've kicked him off my team.
