Welcome to day 9, and the first half of quarterfinals of TAT's Fourth Annual US Open Womens Suicide Pool. Hopefully, you have saved just the right 4 players that will get you through 2 rounds of quarterfinals (the USTA may have some issues, but they do make the best possible schedule when it comes to Suicide Pools!).

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 an UPDATED “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. AS ALWAYS, BE CAREFUL.

Post your Day 8 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by the start of play in New York, rain or shine, that is Tuesday, September 2, 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. This thread will be locked at 11:00 AM EDT, so please don't wait until the last minute or you may find it locked when you hit "post".

If you change your mind after you make your pick, and before the deadline, please make a second post advising us of your change - PLEASE DO NOT make your change in your original post, as we often go through the posts before closing to begin the task of updating the picks and results, and we might miss a change if you edit your original pick.

Best of luck, and thank you for joining us!

Tuesday's schedule consists of 2 QUARTERFINAL MATCHES FROM THE BOTTOM half of the women’s draw:

DEMENTIEVA, Elena RUS [5] v SCHNYDER, Patty SUI [15]
BAMMER, Sybille AUT [29] v JANKOVIC, Jelena SRB [2]

Well, I've already taken Dementieva & Schnyder, so for my Day 9 pick on the Women's side, I'll go with...

JANKOVIC!

...knowing full well that the best I can hope for is to make it to the finals with no one left to choose from once I get there.

There's still Charlie, Salmon. He could take Schnyder and make the last couple days of our game interesting.

Looks like munchin is going for Serena-Elena or Dinara-Elena final. Everyone else is hoping for Patty being one of the finalists :cheesy:
