However, the draw has been changed for Barty withdrew with an injury. Madison and Naomi now play qualifiers in the lst round, rather than each other. I, and likely CrossCourtBH, will have to change our candidate for fmKO in the PGame due to this latest development.

Will be there in one of the next years; me and my other half plan on flying to Chicago and then take the Amtrak California Zephir for a 54h acclimation period - seems a good idea to overcome the jet lag

Welcome when you do come here, but beware of somethings while here, tho'. Take precautions, but enjoy your visit, nevertheless. Beautiful lake in the summer, loads of cultural amenities at one's disposal, the Magnificent Mile going north on Michigan Ave from downtown is where most tourists go for the evenings, tho' parking fees are outrageous in the downtown and northern/southern areas.

The California Zephyr.....remember watching that train go by at a recreational park that I frequented in my youth, sledding from a slight hill near the tracks and ice skating. It sped by religiously at about 5:45 p.m. everyday on it's way to California and on the rear of such it said....."California Zephyr" in red and white letters with a black back drop....

54 hours? ......

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........
