    The rules say:

    - Deadlines may change due to unforeseen circumstance. Generally the rule of thumb is that the deadline is start of play for the day in which more than 2 R16 matches will be played. Itís up to participants to be aware of this as the runners of the tournament are human and fallible. We try to update as well as we are able.

    - Freebies: this is the opposite situation. Some R-16 matches will have been played before the deadline giving you a FREE quarterfinalist which will not exceed 2 per tournament.
    There are 3 second round matches Wednesday in Basel, but only 2 in Vienna. I'd say make predictions as if both are due before tomorrow and be prepared to update if any deadlines change.

    Looks like Vienna has been changed to Thursday?

    And of course the brackets wound up different than last year for Elite Trophy! Still could have lots of people with both finalists, especially a Bertens-Sabalenka final.

    Props to mysterX for being the only one with Muchova AND only one with Zheng in semis.

    Props to me for being the only one with NO semifinalists. Been a rough week it has!
