Thanks for the summary, TE. I guess we are in the Sevastova's boat together. Have a nice sailing!

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Padme is like the one comp I'm actually doing well in (missed 4 tournament and still in 9th) but I may have flushed that right down the toilet with my thrown-together team here.  I mean, Kontaveit?  What?  Sounded good at 12:30am.

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Thanks tdab, went for Anastasia with Bertens so hopefully one of them wins a few matches.
Looks like Anett is going to do it for ya Arvis.

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

No Perfect Teams for Madrid now that Sevastova is out.

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

In Den Bosh, every single one of us has Vandy, and all but Dwight have Kontaveit.  O___O
I'm not used to that kind of uniformity in Padme.

Over in Nottingham it's a little more varied, but not much.  Quite a lot of losses already, and it's not even the end of the first day.  Lots of us had Giorgi, and Edu even had Kristie Ahn.  Hard to anticipate exactly what manner of Grass Court Crazy we're going to get from tourney to tourney, eh?

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Only Dwight has a possible PT left after Kontaveit's loss.  Nice Bencic pick, Dwight!

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Apparently not, afterall. But thanks for the early encouragement!
