The results are a little hard too read; poorly organized

So I'm not sure who won and lost lol

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson

I know! The Live Scoring charts are definitely confusing. But I finally figured it out! Here's the scoop:

The first column on the left, Pts, concerns the POINTS happening in the current set. The first side to win 4 points wins the game. Then there is a tiebreak point I guess, because some games end 5-4.

You need five games to win a set. The current score in GAMES is also changing as the set goes on; you will see that change in its appropriate column.

Scores in the other columns reflect the sets already played:

MS = men's singles
WS = women's singles
MD = men's doubles
WD = women's doubles
MXD = Mixed

Finally, the blue column on the far right, Tot, shows the cumulative total for all the sets played so far. So to check which team is winning, or which team won, that's the only column you need to look at.

For details of the points scored by the individual players in each set, you can click on Match Stats on the bottom right. Above the Team stats chart on the Match Stats page, you can click on links to look into the WS, MS, etc sets.

Hope that helps!

Edited to correct scoring mistake! 4 points, not 5, wins a game.

Good thread Janie. I hope it's a good summer of WTT action. It's fun tennis and a good change of pace from the WTA and ATP tours.

And I hope Anna Kournikova plays some WTT singles this season in addition to her doubles and mixed doubles and is league MVP this season.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

Sorry, but I don't think AK will be the go-to singles player for her team, cat!

I think I like WTT because it gives some lesser-known players a chance to really shine. Not only Challenger players that i'm familiar with from that world, but also unsung veterans like Elena Likhotseva, who was the TeamTennis MVP last year. And retired players like Pat Rafter last year , college players and even junior players have their day in the sun, too.

Anna-Lena is on the Wranglers roster, but maybe she's not back from England yet. A lot of the Tour players play only a limited schedule with their WTT teams. Keep checking; she'll be playing for sure. They need her!

No. She had a great record, winning all but one of her matches, but she wasn't chosen, probably because she didn't play as often as Likhotseva did.

This year it looks like Hingis is only going to play ONCE.

The best way to find photos is to do a search of the name of one of the teams on news.google.com.

Angie Haynes is off to a fantastic start for her Delaware Smash team. I hope she can transfer this success to the Tour this summer.
