View Full Version : Day 2 (Tues) Womens Pick:USO Suicide Pool

Welcome to Day 2 of the 4th Anual US Open Suicide Pool. Hopefully your Day 1 pick got through with little trouble, and you've saved you case of bad nerves for later in the fortnight!

You will be making one pick EACH DAY of the women’s event (NOT one each round), and once you use a player, you can never use them again. There is a "Picks and Results thread” posted so you can check the choices you have already made.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU FOLLOW THE POSTED SCHEDULE OF PLAY BELOW TODAY, AND EVERY DAY. We will be opening a daily thread for you to place your selection as soon as play is announced for the next day, if not sooner. You must choose a match for those listed for the day - if there are scheduling issues due to rain, it will be announced in the daily thread.

Post your Day 2 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by the SCHEDULED start of play for the day in New York, that is, Tuesday, August 26, 2008 at 11:00 AM New York time (east coast), 8:00 AM on the west coast. For those in Europe, London is five (5) hours later than the east coast. Don’t be late as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will.

A reminder - if you wish to change your pick after posting it, please POST YOUR PICK IN A NEW THREAD . We often go through the thread before closing to start the task of updating our picks and results thread, and we might miss your change if you edit your original post.

SPECIAL NOTE: Both SERENA and VENUS WILLIAMS, and ALONA AND KATERYNA BONDARENKO are in the top half of the draw. If you pick a Williams or a Bondarenko, YOU MUST specify which one. Failure to specify which one will result in a disqualification


Best of luck to everyone.

Tuesday’s schedule of play consists of these 32 matches from the TOP HALF of the Womens draw:

Well, shouldn't be surprised that my new strategy worked: picking the #3 seed on Day One isn't exactly a risk (other than running out of picks later). Another top-14 seed this time, and I feel fairly confident ...

Day 1: KUZNETSOVA, Svetlana RUS [3]
Day 2: SZAVAY, Agnes HUN [13]

Mostly picking against the "underperforming" Bremond, but Julia Goerges has had like one big win this year. One more than Bremond. I wonder if she'd do better if Srebotnik were on the other side of the net, though.

In what is shaping up to be a popular bandwagon choice, I'll go along with the crowd and take one of the more 'obvious' picks in...

Casey Dellacqua.


A reminder - if you wish to change your pick after posting it, please POST YOUR PICK IN A NEW THREAD . We often go through the thread before closing to start the task of updating our picks and results thread, and we might miss your change if you edit your original post.
Saw this yesterday but didn't have time to comment and thought it may be corrected later, but I believe the capitalized phrase should advise players to post a new message in the current thread, not an entirely different one.

Dellacqua's a good safe choice. The only reason I am avoiding her now is that I'm worried about the lovely Miss Ivanovic. Between the thumb, and the lack of match readiness, I think it might be wise to save Casey, just in case.

So I'm going to take the woman who will be playing in her 58th consecutive Slam. And a woman who has gotten to the 2nd round or better in her last 13 straight USO appearances.

Ai Sugiyama
