Welcome to Day 4 of the 4th Anual US Open Suicide Pool. If you have gotten this far, consider yourself lucky. The crowd is thinning drasticaly by the day.

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 4 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, Thursday, 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.

And a SPECIAL NOTE: Both Serena and Venus Williams are on the schedule for Day 4. If you choose a Williams as your Day 4 selection, you must specify whether you are choosing Venus or Serena. Failure to specify will result in a disqualification.

Best of luck to everyone.

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

IVANOVIC, Ana SRB [1] v COIN, Julie FRA (Q)

Hmmm ... lots of good choices in the top 14 seeds here. Ivanovic sure is making me nervous, so I'm wondering if I should take her now. No way she's beating anyone who is any good this tourney ... not sure when I last felt that the 4, 6, 7, and 9 seeds were better bets to go deep than the #1. But there you have it:

Day 1: KUZNETSOVA, Svetlana RUS [3]
Day 2: SZAVAY, Agnes HUN [13]
Day 3: BARTOLI, Marion FRA [12]
Day 4: IVANOVIC, Ana SRB [1]

Go Ana!

This is presuming, of course, that, as of this post, Davenport wins her Day 3 match!

I'm stunned that so many people are picking Radwanska. Do that many people think Cibulkova will beat her? She's been playing great all year. Is there something I'm missing here?

(and that's not just rhetorical, as I'm planning on saving her for at least one more round, maybe two ...)
