    My funny draw story of the week..yesterday I decided I would add either Kudermotova or Tomljanovic...whoever got the worse draw.

    They play each other

    The instant feedback for this contest is great...we already know trading in Potopova was a good idea. It does make the end of tournaments pretty anti-climatic though.

    Anyone else having too many wins this week? Don't these players know they are supposed to lose?

    I added REBECCA PETERSON. Who was playing Venus in the first round.
    All the way to the quarters and still playing (I think).
    Our collective ability to play all these games WRONG is amazing. Suicide Pools? We pick losers. YCWJ? We pick winners. BIGGEST LOSER? We nail the eventual champion again and again.

    Semis now. And she's playing in the wrong tournament next week too.

    It's the D players screwing everything up of all people. My only B player was nice enough to lose right away. None of my D players even entered Moscow qualifying.

    I haven't been tracking other people's teams... is there any remaining drama with the matches still to come to decide who's going to win/medal in this one? Or is it all (Unofficially of course) decided by now? I'm down to my last player (Pavy) but assume some people still have 2-3 maybe.

    Re: 2019: Greatest Loser: Loser's Lounge

    I've only been tracking the top 4 (since I'm one of them) for this last week. By my very unofficial tally, waylandboy-tw will win again. 2nd place is a tossup. Omegadoom has Bertens and Pavy left, I have Kudermetova left (thanks for nothing Svitolina!). Just behind you (by 150-200 pts) were tenedab, Jeff in TX, and daveg, but I haven't been tracking them.

    Re: 2019: Greatest Loser: Loser's Lounge

    Thought so. I'll probably be the biggest loser who doesn't get a medal for being a loser then! That first unneeded trade by me to trade out a hurt Tsurenko came back to bite me...researched her losses and didn't pay attention to her not playing since July...heh.

    Well, I'm regretting Kudermetova...she wasn't supposed to play as well as she has. And I really should have traded in Babos instead of Hercog this last week. But I still wouldn't have caught waylandboy-tw, so oh well.

    I say we send Ostapenko a tab for her wins. We almost all picked her. She immediately started winning.
    5% is not out of proportion, I say.

    She got me 210 points the first three weeks... I'm blaming all of you for adding her!

    Don't forget doesn't matter if she's winning this week though.
