Out of 291 entrants, 60 made it to Day 8: CONGRATULATIONS!

The LenaD bandwagon made it through, but we lost a few to Scheepers, Kirilenko, no pick, and the lesser-known-but-equally-deadly double pick.

Why did you disqualify me as double pick?

I mentioned in my second post that I changed my mind to Schiavone. I thought it was legal, please explain.

Thank you.

Well, with Venus' lost I will be out of the SP due to a lack of picks. Can't complain too much--this is by far the furthest I've ever been on the women's side!

Plus Nadia won!

With all but 3 picks in so far for tomorrow, we have:

33 Shvedovas vs. 2 Groths
11 Serenas vs. 3 Henins

Who will make it through? Good luck everyone!

Well, Serena isn't playing Henin just yet!

Well, Serena isn't playing Henin just yet!

But whoever they pick, they think she is going to lose the next Round!
So it is more like

Williams 3 Vs Henin 11

Scotty
05-31-2010, 09:27 AM

you're right. I had advanced a round too far. And now they WON'T play each other, which is going to make things difficult for SP players counting on that match-up.

Updated counts above. Will we lose 5 or 41 today?

AH, I had been looking up various records- and actually, Caroline is 2:1 against Petrova- including beating Nadia twice this year. So, perhaps it's best to pick Petrova....:confused: (I'm hoping to find out more about this doubles default business today, too.)

There are 8 women in the Roland Garros quarterfinals, and with tomorrow's pick, I already have used 5 of them in the pool! :hyst:

You can never have more than 6 heading into the quarters, and 4 is pretty normal. After all, you only need 4 to beat the draw.

I always struggle with when to bite the bullet. I did a pretty good job throughout the first week of staying out of the middle two quarters as much as possible. But it turns out that staying out of those sections is ultimately what did me in because the bullet I bit on Day 8 (combined with my Day 1 blunder) ended up shooting myself in the foot. I can't have a pick for the final, and a lot can still go wrong between now and then.

I'm trying to stay happy for Nadia, though, in spite of the fact that she bit me twice. LOL!

Nope. I've used both in the bottom quarter. :( I'd be okay if this were an event where the halves of the draw had come together.

Has anyone done a count on the number that can still beat the draw? I haven't checked and am guessing it's a decent number in spite of the large number that already has used Elena but still have Nadia and Caroline and/or Fran.

Nothing automatic about the Caro/Fran match, either. Lots can still go wrong.

mmmm8
05-31-2010, 01:25 PM
I blame Pennetta. She was supposed to beat Caroline, and should have. Don't even start me on my faith in Venus Williams

Miles
05-31-2010, 01:31 PM
Anyone know why Stosur/Petrova retired from their doubles match? I think Caro gets to the final at this point so not sure who to pick between the hotmess that will be Elena/Petrova.

Schiavone was my day 2 pick :cheesy:
Also used up: Petrova, Dementieva, Serena, Stosur

Ultimately I was doomed by the lower half.


Don't even start me on my faith in Venus Williams

That did me in, as well as my belief in Henin.

What I'm suprised about is the number of people who believe the winner of the Schiavone/Wozniacki match will prevail over the Dementieva/Petrova match (assuming they believe the ultimate winner will be Serena, Jelena, or Stosur). Very interesting. I know some of the choices are due to prior picks, but it seems most people are leaning towards Schiavone or Wozniacki as the losing finalist (most Dementieva pickers haven't picked Petrova, Schiavone, or Wozniacki). Little faith in Nadia in the semis?

no, it is just that some of us dont have any picks left on the Wozniacki/Schiavone side!

One person picked Elena, only to change it. And a number of others still had her.

Elena is a past French finalist. Nadia's been known to gag in the biggest matches. All I'm saying is I would have thought at least one person would have deemed Elena a worthy gamble.

The person who picked Elena had her as a double pick, so good thing he switched. Wonder how many had Elena available.

I chickened out of Schiavone (figured Dem-Petrova is 50/50 and Woz-Schiavone 55/45), and then proceeded to convince myself that if she beats Caro, she'll beat Petrova too b/c of their winning H2H

Worthy to take against Nadia, but not worthy against Wozniacki/Schiavone? I would have picked from that pair if I was still alive and with choice...

i was one of those who still had Dementirva available and I really love her, actually, but I was really disgusted with her new serve motion and thought she would serve two double faults a game.. she has put me out of the SP but she is wonderful so Iam happy..

I have never responded to another post, so I hope I'm doing this right. :) Anyway - you're right on both points. I'm a "he", and I can make only one more pick before I'm done. I am pretty shocked (and happy) that I won today. I had really painted myself into a corner, but I also didn't realize that I was the only Schiavone picker and that everyone else had chosen either Woz or Petrova. I'm just glad I don't look at the "picks" thread anymore. I used to do that, but I would end up letting myself get influenced by everyone else's picks!

I have never responded to another post, so I hope I'm doing this right. :) Anyway - you're right on both points. I'm a "he", and I can make only one more pick before I'm done. I am pretty shocked (and happy) that I won today. I had really painted myself into a corner, but I also didn't realize that I was the only Schiavone picker and that everyone else had chosen either Woz or Petrova. I'm just glad I don't look at the "picks" thread anymore. I used to do that, but I would end up letting myself get influenced by everyone else's picks!

Cdavid...check your PM inbox for a note about the prize from Wertheim for winning the game. (actually, wait a minute or two til I send it).

Big congrats!

cdavid99's final pick of Jankovic is also correct. Alas, no picks left for the semis or finals. But still, a great achievement at a tough tournament.

I like Moose's typo in the Day 11 Women Pick thread to close it :)

(oh and in the men's one too...)

The waking up an extra hour each morning is finally catching up with me. I was going to fix it, but figured everyone deserves a laugh.
