It's time to kick off Talk About Tennis's 7th Annual United States Open Suicide Pool (or for you acronym fanciers, USOSP). Over the course of this fortnight, you are cordially invited to demonstrate your incisive knowledge of the ups and downs of the WTA luck.

We'd like to extend a big TAT welcome to any of you that are joining us for the first time, and a "welcome back" to our returning players.

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 them again. There will be a “picks and results thread” posted once the day 1 threads are closed so you can check the choices you have already made.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU FOLLOW THE POSTED SCHEDULE OF PLAY BELOW TODAY, AND EVERY DAY. We will be opening a daily thread for you to place your selection as soon as play is announced for the next day, if not sooner. You must choose a match for those listed for the day - if there are scheduling issues due to rain, it will be announced in the daily thread.

Post your Day 1 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by the SCHEDULED start of play for the day in New York, that is, Monday, August 29 at 11:00 AM New York time (east coast), 8:00 AM on the west coast. Don’t be late as we don't enjoy losing players due to late entry, but it's a rule we have to be very hard lined about.

NOTE 1: At the time of opening our threads, the official order of play failed to list 5 bottom half matches - these matches have been marked with a *. It is our understanding that these matches feature players who are in the WTA Dallas tournament, and who cannot get into New York at present because of Hurricane Irene, and when they will play their 1st round match is in question at this time.
We want to maintain balance between the halves of the draw in terms of picks. Therefore, we are making these matches Day 1 picks, and whether or not subsequently added to the Day 1 schedule, or played on Day 2, these will be Day 1 matches for purposes of this year's Suicide Pool.


NOTE 2: On Day 1, both Bondarenkos and both Radwanskas are on the schedule of play. If you choose one of these players, you must state their first and last name as part of your pck. Failure to do so will result in your being disqualified if it is not corrected by the scheduled start of play.

A reminder - if you wish to change your pick after posting it, please POST YOUR PICK IN A NEW POST, instead of editing your previous post. . We often go through the thread before closing to start the task of updating our picks and results thread, and we might miss your change if you edit your original post.

Best of luck and thanks for joining us for our 7th Annual USOSP.

I'm trying not to think about this year's US Open SP too much since I've really sucked at it in the past. Yet I was still wary of taking Peng considering her history with these pools. So my Day One pick on the Women's Side is...

BONDARENKO (Kateryna)!

It's time to kick off Talk About Tennis's 7th Annual United States Open Suicide Pool (or for you acronym fanciers, USOSP). Over the course of this fortnight, you are cordially invited to demonstrate your incisive knowledge of the ups and downs of the WTA luck.

We'd like to extend a big TAT welcome to any of you that are joining us for the first time, and a "welcome back" to our returning players.

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 them again. There will be a “picks and results thread” posted once the day 1 threads are closed so you can check the choices you have already made.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU FOLLOW THE POSTED SCHEDULE OF PLAY BELOW TODAY, AND EVERY DAY. We will be opening a daily thread for you to place your selection as soon as play is announced for the next day, if not sooner. You must choose a match for those listed for the day - if there are scheduling issues due to rain, it will be announced in the daily thread.

Post your Day 1 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by the SCHEDULED start of play for the day in New York, that is, Monday, August 29 at 11:00 AM New York time (east coast), 8:00 AM on the west coast. Don’t be late as we don't enjoy losing players due to late entry, but it's a rule we have to be very hard lined about.

NOTE 1: At the time of opening our threads, the official order of play failed to list 5 bottom half matches - these matches have been marked with a *. It is our understanding that these matches feature players who are in the WTA Dallas tournament, and who cannot get into New York at present because of Hurricane Irene, and when they will play their 1st round match is in question at this time.
We want to maintain balance between the halves of the draw in terms of picks. Therefore, we are making these matches Day 1 picks, and whether or not subsequently added to the Day 1 schedule, or played on Day 2, these will be Day 1 matches for purposes of this year's Suicide Pool.


NOTE 2: On Day 1, both Bondarenkos and both Radwanskas are on the schedule of play. If you choose one of these players, you must state their first and last name as part of your pck. Failure to do so will result in your being disqualified if it is not corrected by the scheduled start of play.

A reminder - if you wish to change your pick after posting it, please POST YOUR PICK IN A NEW POST, instead of editing your previous post. . We often go through the thread before closing to start the task of updating our picks and results thread, and we might miss your change if you edit your original post.

Best of luck and thanks for joining us for our 7th Annual USOSP.

Monday’s schedule of play consists of 32 matches from the BOTTOM HALF of the Womens draw:
