    I’ll have to wait for OOP Tuesday ... but Sofia may be due before start of play Tuesday ... be prepared to make picks there tomorrow night in case.

    It was borderline...but Sofia will be due Wednesday (with two freebies).
    A Canadian Slam winner? Inconceivable!

    I believe historically we’ve tried to limit to no more than two freebies (usually) so one more match and deadline may have been tomorrow. There are still plenty of guesses left!

    What about Linz - three round of 16 matches and four round of 32 matches affecting four quarterfinal picks including three in the bottom half?

    Linz will remain due tomorrow due to three round of 16 matches.

    Scores for the week:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

    Remember to check that you look at the correct sheet tab for the week.

    High score of the week was by PeterSkan, with atlpam and Drop-Shot tied in second.

    Best ATP score was by Drop-Shot.

    Best WTA score was by 3mlm.

    Congrats to the high scorers.

    Race to Shenzhen "finalists" look like this at the moment:

    tenedab
    atlpam
    Omegadoom
    Drop-shot
    bestjax

    Is there going to be a Shenzhen this year? For that matter, what WTA do we even have left? If I look at the calendar all I see is Limoges and that shows as a 125k. Are we maybe done WTA this year?

    And ATP finals may be last picks of the year as well.

    I'm way out of the loop. I don't know. Just kinda assumed.

    EDIT: Google tells me it was cancelled. Oops. Disregard the prior comment.

    Yes, this is the end of predictions for this year.

    The WTA site says

    As a result [of] the cancellation of the Shiseido WTA Finals, the Porsche Race to Shenzhen has been cancelled.
    However, the site does post the race rankings:

    1 3934 Sofia Kenin
    2 2900 Naomi Osaka
    3 2770 Simona Halep
    4 2767 Victoria Azarenka
    5 2432 Iga Swiatek
    6 2420 Aryna Sabalenka
    7 2321 Petra Kvitova
    8 2310 Garbiñe Muguruza
    9 2036 Elise Mertens
    10 1732 Elena Rybakina
