Congratulations on making it to Day 8 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.

Post your Day 8 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 8, that’s Sunday, May 30, 11:00 AM in PARIS. That is Sunday 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.

Day 8 consists of only the following 4 matches from the bottom half of the Women's draw:

[30] KIRILENKO, Maria RUS vs [17] SCHIAVONE, Francesca ITA
[14] PENNETTA, Flavia ITA vs [3] WOZNIACKI, Caroline DEN
[5] DEMENTIEVA, Elena RUS vs (Q) SCHEEPERS, Chanelle RSA
[19] PETROVA, Nadia RUS vs [2] WILLIAMS, Venus USA

"Mais naturellement," laughed Suzanne Lenglen, as she casually smashed a ball into the backhand corner while removing a pebble from her shoe and leaping over the net, "I know zat my genius is not my own, it is a gift from ze god in ze 'eaven. I am like Napoleon on St Helena wiz zis gift "de mon dieu.... Va!" she suddenly screamed at the Russian ball girl who was practising her second serve. " Helena," I pondered, "de mon dieu, va? Oh, I see:

so i see lots of people are assuming Dementieva will lose to Venus.. hmm.. of course her record is not good against Venus, even on clay.. but still a brave thing to bet on.. good fun to see..
