View Full Version : Women's Day 10 (Wed) Aus Open SP Pick

01-25-2010, 08:07 PM
Welcome to Day 10, and the remaining Quarterfinal matchies in TAT's 6th Annual Australian Open Women’s Suicide Pool.

There are only four of you left, so here's a tip of the old SP hat (it's a black derby, if you were curious) to Drop-Shot, jmcguire, Netplay225, and riversurge24 for getting farther than 351 other players this go-round. Hopefully, you still have the 3 players you need to complete the pool, and conquer the draw.

NOTE: By mid-week we will be announcing the tiebreakers for the prize that is being given by our friend Jon Wertheim of Sports Illustrated.

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. Especially at this point in the game, it is vital to check your earlier picks. We have lost people in the past this late in the game for making a duplicate pick.

It is very important you follow the schedule of play for the day posted below.

Post your Day 10 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 10, that’s Wednesday, 11:00 AM in AUSTRALIA. For those in the US, that is Tuesday 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!

Wednesday's Order of Play consists of the two quarterfinal matches from the TOP half of the women’s draw:

Serena Williams USA (1) vs. Victoria Azarenka BLR (7)
Na Li CHN (16) vs. Venus Williams USA (6)

The appointed hour (why is it called that, anyway?) having arrived, Day 10 is officially CLOSED.

Good luck, everybody! Again, we'll be losing people after today.
