Just the facts.

Okay, Dragnet allusions are heretofore finished.

For the 12 of you who remain in the draw, you must choose one winner from either of the semifinal matches. This is your second-to-last pick. the only pick you'll make after this one is the winner of the tournament, so the person you pick today is the person who you think will LOSE IN THE FINAL.

This thread will close at 1PM local time; that is, 8AM Eastern, 5AM Pacific. Please don't wait until the waning moments, as the thread will be locked precisely at that time.

Also, please consult the UPDATED Picks & Results thread so that you don't duplicate a pick. Do not think that this never happens!

Here we go!

Thursday's schedule of play includes the two (2) semifinal matchups of from the Ladies' Singles draw:

Dinara Safina RUS (1) vs. Venus Williams USA (3)
Elena Dementieva RUS (4) vs. Serena Williams USA (2)

All thing said and done, I'm thrilled to have made it farther than I ever have in a Women's SP. That being said, there can be only one choice for the Semifinals as far as I'm concerned. My Day 10 pick on the Women's Side is...

WILLIAMS!

...aaaand presuming that you'll want more information than that, the first name of my Day 10 pick on the Women's Side is...

SERENA!

Absolutely elated that I've got about a week later this time than any of my previous attempts in this game.......

Venus Williams please !

this is tough.... i think if both williams get through to the final serena will win (its her turn). but if there is going to be an upset, i think it will be venus losing to safina. which makes me more tempted to back serena in the semis.... meaning i'd have to choose venus to win the final.

My choice for the semi final:

SERENA Williams

thanks

...at least, until I wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat, haunted by dreams of Killer and BG, and decide to change my pick...

It's going to be fun, missin'! I think all of us are counting on both Venus and Serena winning today, with the majority banking on a Venus final victory. Looking at her record that makes perfect sense, of course, but wouldn't it be nice if Serena....... :D

Good luck to you all! :)

I know the record :) but......I'm kind of feeling Dinara today. Can you imagine if?.....:)

What if she makes another slam semifinal....wins and goes on to the final to meet the other sister? How awesome would that be?

See....this is why I love tennis so much! Oh...I'll sush before jessie and dry come after me. BUT....what will be....will be. And my girl IS the Queen of Grass !!!
