Bonjour and bienvenue to Day 6 of the Women’s Roland Garros Suicide Pool – 2010 edition.

Remember, you still need to make a pick EACH DAY of the women’s event (NOT one each round), and once you use a player, you may never use her again. Check the “picks and results thread” to see the choices you have already made.

It is very important you follow the schedule of play for the day posted below. A pick is mandatory, even if your match from day 5 did not conclude or reach the court.

Post your Day 6 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in Paris, rain or shine. For day 6, that’s Friday, May 28, 11:00 AM in PARIS. That is Friday 2:00 AM Pacific Time. 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.

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, he obviously cannot win his 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.
Best of luck and thanks for joining us.

You cannot pick from a match carried over from the previous day, even if that match did not start.

Day 6 consists of only the following 8 matches from the bottom half of the Women's draw:

[6] KUZNETSOVA, Svetlana RUS vs [30] KIRILENKO, Maria RUS
[17] SCHIAVONE, Francesca ITA vs [11] LI, Na CHN

[14] PENNETTA, Flavia ITA vs HERCOG, Polona SLO
[31] DULGHERU, Alexandra ROU vs [3] WOZNIACKI, Caroline DEN

[5] DEMENTIEVA, Elena RUS vs WOZNIAK, Aleksandra CAN
AMANMURADOVA, Akgul UZB vs (Q) SCHEEPERS, Chanelle RSA

[15] REZAI, Aravane FRA vs [19] PETROVA, Nadia RUS
[26] CIBULKOVA, Dominika SVK vs [2] WILLIAMS, Venus USA

Open! (finally)

You MUST pick from the 3rd round matches in the bottom half in post #1.

Do NOT pick a 2nd round match carried over from Thursday. Good luck to everyone!

I'm thinking you should dispense with putting the days in parentheses after the "Day X" part. :)

Now assuming Stosur gets through (assuming worked with Schiavone), five down, 10 to go ... geez, anybody you take today is a significant risk of losing OR continuing winning.

Day 1: [14] PENNETTA, Flavia ITA
Day 2: [8] RADWANSKA, Agnieszka POL
Day 3: [12] SHARAPOVA, Maria RUS
Day 4: [17] SCHIAVONE, Francesca ITA
Day 5: [7] STOSUR, Samantha AUS
Day 6: [11] LI, Na CHN

Suzanne Lenglen smacked a forehand down the line, making the 50-centime coin her father had placed there jump off the court. "As a woman I am not patiente," she explained, dabbing her forehead with cologne, "and je n'aime pas to wait for ze resultats: it is not my faute is ze wezeer is so bad ze players do not play! As for moi, I play in all wezeers! After zat Grand Duchess Anastasia Pavwotteveer'ernameiz..." "Pavluychenkova" I interpolated, "Whateveer," she said, "after - or rather, if! - zat woman can keep her appointment wiz me, I will support anozeer personne, zat Italian lady who sounds like pasta, or in my language a feather - 'ow is she called? Penne?"
"Ah," I said, judiciously pocketing the coin,

Flavia PENNETTA!
