I think there has been a mistake. You wrote my pick as Medina Garrigues instead of Lisicki, but then Medina Garrigues does not show up on the total vote count. Lisicki, I believe, did not play today. How do I proceed? Can I just make a day 2 prediction?

Hi edoroth,

I think Moose is asleep on the East Coast, so he'll see this in the morning. I believe you did the right thing: making a Day 2 pick, while waiting for Lisicki to play her match. You'll need both to win to advance to Day 3.

Good luck!

Yeah, looks like you'll be through with Lisicki as your first pick. I'm sure Moose will fix it when he gets a chance. FYI, the most popular picks are listed above the others, that's where AMG is.

shtexas
08-29-2011, 09:30 PM
Yes. Everyone is correct. Make your day 2 pick, which you did, because your post history shows you picked Lisicki for day 1. You will have to survive both picks tomorrow.

Got it, edoroth, and thank you - somehow, I had missed adding one player, and assigned that players pick to you. I now have you recorded with Lisicki, and wcj1tat, who I had accidentally left out of the P&R thread, is in with AMG.

Only two other Vika pickers with me? Everyone saving her for round two?

Not touching Vika nor Serena until the very end. I think few people have a chance against Serena, but Vika has a bit.

I'm out now, but I didn't pick Azarenka because she would probably make the semis or even the final if she got past Serena. I give her a 20% chance in that match, but if she pulls it out it probably blows your chances at beating the draw.

Well, I need to go back to the drawing board. It was going to be hard for me to beat the draw on the women's side when there are 128 women in the draw and 124 of them are on my Do Not Pick list.

At the risk of eating crow, I'm still in the mystified camp at how Vika gets considered a "contender" at virtually every major without the GS wins to warrant it. Granted, she's had some bad luck with injuries, and the Wimbledon SF run was nice (though Hantuchova was her highest-ranked win...), but her USO record doesn't look that much better than, say, Vania King's. The talent's clearly there, but I'm not yet a believer.

Feel free to bookmark this now to rub in my face later... ;)

With a normal draw, I would pencil her in for the quarters and consider her a coin flip at best no matter who she played for the semis. However, IF she can take out Serena, I think that would provide a bit of inspiration. If she makes the 4th round, she's a contender.

285 going into play on Day 2. Our top picks

Daniela "Hands of Cement" (you had to be at her doubles match to get that, sorry) Hantuchova, with 52[s]

Jie "Na's got the hardware, but I've got the looks" Zheng, with 35

[s]Tamira "Don't call me Simona" Paszek, with 27

Maria Jose "Serena, I'm in Locker Room "C" " Martinez Sanchez, with 20.

Today's other picks:

Azarenka: 3
Baltacha: 5
Cetkovska: 14
Cornet: 1
Date Krumm: 13
Dellaqua (love you for this pick): 1
Dokic: 1
Dulko: 3
Erakovic: 4
Gajdosova: 7
Ivanovic: 5
Jankovic: 6
Johansson: 2
Kanepi: 5
Keothavong: 1
King: 5
Krajicek: 2
Kuznetsova: 10
Marino: 1
Martic: 3
Pavlyuchenkova: 14
Peer: 7
Petkovic: 2
Schiavone: 4
Stephens: 1
Strycova: 3
Suarez Navarro: 3
Vesnina: 9
Vinci: 16

285 - 133 = 152
We have gone from 357 to 152 in just the first round. 7 years of playing, and this game still never ceases to amaze me. Some of the most intelligent tennis fans in the world join us to play, yet after only two days, we have lost nearly 60% of our players.

(edited - had a Pavlyuchenkova recorded as a Paszek - Excel is a wonderful program for running the game, but sometimes its built in intelligence will record a pick incorrectly. It's especially fun with the lower half this time around, when you have Petrova, Peng, and Pennetta all not only on the same half, but all three getting picked multiple times)

Thank you, sokoll. I'm not anywhere near the artist that Beaujarkko is with player recaps, and some of them tend to be in-jokes that only a couple of TATeurs might get (today's Domi, for example, is specifically directed at one staff member), but it's nice to know that they are read and enjoyed.
