I hate you for making it to Day 5 of the Fifth Annual Ladies’ Suicide Pool for The Championships - Wimbledon... but congratulations anyway.

You will be making one pick EACH DAY of the Ladies' event (NOT one each round), and once you use a player, you can never use her again. There is a “picks and results thread” posted so you can check the choices you have made.

It is very important you follow our posted schedule of play for the day. Today's matches include the 8 third round matches from the BOTTOM half of the Ladies' Draw.

Post your Day 5 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in London, rain or shine, that is, Friday, June 26th at 12:00 PM London time. For those in the US, London is five (5) hours later than the east coast, and eight (8) hours later than the West coast. Don’t be late as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. The thread will be locked at the deadline, so don't wait until the final minutes.

Since the object of the game is to pick a player that you are sure is going to win on that day, should your player withdraw, she obviously cannot win her match. You do not get a substitute (lucky loser) - you have chosen a player, not a spot in the draw. You might want to scout your player and make sure there is not a known injury or illness issue.

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 thanks for joining us!

Friday’s schedule of play is all 8 matches from the BOTTOM half of the Ladies's draw:

Vera Zvonareva RUS (7) vs Virginie Razzano FRA (26)
Francesca Schiavone ITA vs Marion Bartoli FRA (12)
Dominika Cibulkova SVK (14) vs Elena Vesnina RUS
Regina Kulikova RUS (Q) vs Elena Dementieva RUS (4)

Victoria Azarenka BLR (8) vs Sorana Cirstea ROU (28)
Gisela Dulko ARG vs Nadia Petrova RUS (10)
Daniela Hantuchova SVK vs Ai Sugiyama JPN
Roberta Vinci ITA vs Serena Williams USA (2)

After looking at those choices, I'm thrilled that I crashed and burned on Day 1.

My heart goes out to anyone unfortunate enough to be left in the women's pool.

evidently yesterday's choice wasn't as tough as I thought, as all the ladies I considered moved on fairly easily. may it be so today as well :) already picked two from the top half of this half, so gotta go to the bottom. I'm liking Azarenka and Williams in the quarter, so that leaves me ...

Day 1: Marion Bartoli FRA (12)
Day 2: Flavia Pennetta ITA (15)
Day 3: Dominika Cibulkova SVK (14)
Day 4: Amelie Mauresmo FRA (17)
Day 5: Nadia Petrova RUS (10)

Change of choice: after seeing Cibulkova and her partner defaulted half-way through the doubles today I'm scrubbing her and jumping on to the Dementieva bandwagon.

Well, this is a bit of a pickle. I've got two ladies still alive on this side (both of whom have the potential to win), there are several players I've got to save for future rounds, and that leaves me with few options. Which should have made the choice easier, but didn't. In the end, my Day Five pick on the Women's side is...

PETROVA!

I hate to use her so early, but I'm sensing upsets brewing tomorrow. I'll pick Vika Azarenka and hope she leads me through the carnage.

VICTORIA AZARENKA is the only pick that makes sense (for me) except Serena, and it is WAY too early to pick her.
