Hello, and welcome to Day 1 of the Women's Sony Ericsson at Miami Suicide Pool.

Your Day 1 Women's choice is from 12 matches taken from both halves of the draw that do not involve qualifiers (and you thought Day 1 of Indian Wells was tough - ha!). As always, you will be making one pick each day, and once you use a player, you cannot use them again for the remainder of the tournament.

Post your Day 1 Womens selection by responding in this thread. Since the Miami game is a "practice" pools, we will not keep a formal Picks and Results thread, so it is your responsibility to self-score your way through the tournament. We encourage you to do this by listing all your previous picks in your post for each day (simply cut and paste from the day before), as this has proven the best way to track your picks from our experience.

Your Day 1 Womens Pick is due no later than 11:00 a.m. (Eastern) on Tuesday, March 23 - that is 8:00 a.m. West Coast timetime. NOTE: While some matches begin tomorrow at 10:00 a.m., no main draw match begins before 11:00. Since we only have about 12 hours for your first pick, we will allow picks to be made until 11:00 - but the thread will be closed promptly at 11:00 a.m. ET.

Good luck, and thanks for joining us!

Ok seriously...where are the real choices?

Jeez, Louise. I'll take Lucie Safarova.

Who, by the way, rocks in her Jackie O! sunglasses, as seen while she sat courtside for one of Tomas's matches at IW that I saw.

You promised to close the thread at 11am, but it looks like you did it at 10am.
In case it was an accident and the thread is still open - my pick is Peng.

nigel
03-23-2010, 08:45 AM
I also thought the thread would be open another 15mins....
If so, this is my pick:

Day 1: Yaroslava Shvedova

Ditto on the time confusion.

Day 1: Petra Kvitova (CZE)

03-23-2010, 09:03 AM
Guys, I think the time confusion is caused by the fact that we in the US moved the clocks over a week ago and Europe (and perhaps other regions) don't switch until later this week. Moose closed the thread to picks as promised, at 11 am Eastern Standard Time, but some of you may have miscalculated based on the usual time difference.

It's only practice. So, we can allow those in and chalk it up to our earlier switch to daylight savings time.

I missed it anyway, I couldn't connect all day :(

I'll just play the men's then

shtexas
03-23-2010, 09:59 AM
Everyone watch out with tomorrow's schedule. The outer courts start at 10:00 AM Eastern. Also, remember the US switched to daylight savings time (spring forward one hour) about 10 days ago. So, the deadline will approach fast.
