Welcome to Day 3 of the 4th Anual US Open Suicide Pool. Hopefully you have survived the 1st round of this year's event, and are ready to charge forward in the draw.

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 3 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, Wednesday, August 27, 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.


Best of luck to everyone.

Wednesday's schedule of play consists of these 16 2nd round matches from the BOTTOM HALF of the Womens draw:

DEMENTIEVA, Elena RUS [5] v PARMENTIER, Pauline FRA

I can't pick Lindsay just because I need to be able to hate the person who blows it for me.

So, I'll take Franny (Schiavone).

So far so good ... and picking overwhelming favorites doesn't seem such a bad strategy right now, witnessing all the folks going out with seemingly solid (but not overwhelming) picks. Another top-14 seed this time, and I feel fairly confident ...

Day 1: KUZNETSOVA, Svetlana RUS [3]
Day 2: SZAVAY, Agnes HUN [13]
Day 3: BARTOLI, Marion FRA [12]

Go Marion!

I've promised myself not to overthink things in the first few days of this SP (no matter how many times I've broken that promise in previous SPs). So my Day 3 pick on the Women's side is...

BARTOLI!

08-26-2008, 03:34 PM
Srebotnik for me, please.

If things go true to form, she'll no doubt withdraw with an injury like my first two men's SP picks (Ferrero and Youzhny) did. I seem to be having a detrimental effect on the players' health during this tournament!

I am completely torn making this pick. Franny's one of three I considered taking today, but looking at it logically, instead of from the heart, she's also the least likely of the three to go any further than this round. So, I'll give her a little love, and dedicate Stevie's "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life" to her.

I wasn't going to, but I just looked at her head to head against her opponent. She's beaten her twice this year, once love and one, and once love and love.

Now watch her go foul this up.
