My stream is dead too...

Good to know that you are a Chicago expert :-) one of the remaining US-cities on my to-do list.

Been here all my life, but am not an expert on Chi Town. The city is changing culturally, regentrification is on-going, resulting in changes in all-directions from the downtown area, save for the East, which is the Lake. New bldgs are popping up everywhere, even surprising me, for I live in the burbs'. Yet, the social amenities remain with a lot to see during the day and a thriving, night life along the Magnificent Mile with shopping/restaurants galore and an interesting Navy Pier on the Lake offering varieties of entertainment. Expensive tho' and you'll need to take cabs to get to the places you desire to see, for they span along the Lake for at least 10 miles. Beautiful city........

#ed_op#font color="brown"#ed_cl#@ #ed_op#b#ed_cl#rex#ed_op#/b#ed_cl#:#ed_op#/font#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl#&nbsp;I really have to pick Petra more as a fmKO; she hasa habit of doing very well or very bad. At the end of the year, she tends to be one of the top 10 with most R1 losses...#ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl#And I was considering her, but Woz is equally bad at the moment, and was thinking that Belinda had a shot at that one (and Woz being top4 gives more fmKO points)#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#

Bejing is following the Wuhan-path with top seeds crashing out in the early rounds it seems...

I feel like the tennis season for both main tours should end in late September/early October with the last two events being US Open & YEC. Only because it seems everything post-USO and pre-YEC is a throw away. Also, a longer off season would be great. JMO.

#ed_op#div#ed_cl#
Collins started with a break vs Osaka, leading *1-0, but then Naomi became a Shinkansen and took six games in a row... first set in the pocket. #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl#Edit: make that 7 in a row... a break on love right at the start of set 2... this could be over rapidly... #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl#

Ostapenko has left the top16-building, but she won't be hungry on her travel: Wang gave her two bagels... #whathappenswhenyouwinaslamtoosoon
