We discuss the differential elastic pp cross-section data measured at 13 TeV, through the Coulomb Nuclear Interference region until past the dip. We show that data are consistent with the asymptotic predictions from an empirical model and examine the presence of a zero for the real part of the elastic amplitude near the Coulomb region, well before the dip.
