Welcome to Day 8 of the TAT 6th Annual Australian Open Women’s Suicide Pool. Today, your pick will come from the top half of the draw for the Round of 16.

At best, after yesterday's Bondarenko'ing, there are 25 people left in the game. There may be even less by the end of Sunday's matches. This from a starting total of 355 players.

Again, 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 her 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 schedule of play for the day posted below. Only half of the draw plays Monday.

Post your Day 8 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in Melbourne, rain or shine. For day 8, that’s Monday, 11:00 AM in AUSTRALIA. For those in the US, that is Sunday 7:00 PM EST. Please do not be late, as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. This thread will be locked at the deadline, 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.

You might want to scout your player and make sure there is not a known injury or illness issue.

Good luck!

Monday's Order of Play consists of the four 4th round matches from the TOP half of the women’s draw:

Serena Williams USA (1) vs. Samantha Stosur AUS (13)
Vera Zvonareva RUS (9) vs. Victoria Azarenka BLR (7)

Caroline Wozniacki DEN (4) vs. Na Li CHN (16)
Francesca Schiavone ITA (17) vs. Venus Williams USA (6)

Okay, I'll bite....HUGE risk with this choice but I need to keep as many options open as possible if I make it to the quarters...

Vera Zvonareva, please. :)

I will also go with Vera Zvonereva. I've used Azarenka and the other two matches seem fairly uncertain...I would rather keep those options open.

The sucky part is Vera & Vika won't be playing until late in the evening. Late starts always make me nervous!

Me too, Danielle! It will be a painful wait that will certainly come with thinking that other picks may have been preferable... But I feel lucky to still be alive. I started out picking Alonya and then I changed to Zie purely due to the BondarenKOd reputation!

Not a nice choice but have to go with it if I want to keep my options open...
