Congratulations to our 43 players who have advanced to the 2nd week of our 7th Annual US Open Women's Suicide Pool. We started with 356 players on Day 1, so to be among the remaining 12% of our players is a great accomplishment.

Good luck with the 4th Round, and the rest of our game.

43 players enter the 4th round. All 43 get their picks in on time. Grudgingly, perhaps, but on time.

Today's questionable Top picks:

Samatha "Pressure is a bitch privilege" Stosur, with 16

Monica "See who I'm playing - this should be a snap, and I'm going to the quarters" Niculescu, with 14

Angelique "See who I'm playing - this should be a snap, and I'm going to the quarters" Kerber, with 8

Our other picks:

Shuai: 3
Zvonareva:2

Angelique "See who I'm playing - this should be a snap, and I'm going to the quarters" Kerber, with 8

:hyst:

I watched as much of this as I could stand, then decided that doing the dishes would be more fun.

I picked Peng today, unfortunately, so I should be in the red. At least I got to the second week. It's been fun!

I had the chance to attend this glorious match in person, and I even wanted to check out the new Court 17, but I decided my time was better spent watching Bolleli-Fognini beat up on Knowles and Malisse (you know things aren't going well when MARK´s the angry one throwing things in THAT pair).

I saw Kerber's scoreboard from that court and it was glorious, because I thought picking her was a true suicide mission

26 -1 = 25 advancing to Day 9, and the quarterfinals. Well done, everybody. Hope you saved the right combination of players.

I was eliminated long ago, but have been following with interest....by my rubbery logic, there are still somehow 20 people who can theoretically beat the draw. Well done to all of you!

It's not going to happen for me this year. I've boxed myself in on one side of the draw. Well maybe, it's more accurate to say Kuznetsova's loss, and Wozniacki not being as distracted by her love life as I assumed she might be, have made it impossible. This game, like push-ups, is way more difficult than it looks.

25 advanced to Day 9. While we did not get to see these matches yet, our Day 9 breakdown on picks:

2) Angelique "Do I really have to play someone good now?" Kerber, with 3

3a) Samantha "Out, Out Damn'd (Shot)Spot" Stosur, with 2

3b) Vera "Werewolves of London" Zvonareva, with 2

Flavia pulls even - one set all. Maybe it won't be down to the top 5 [or less], today, after all!

Or not.

So only 5 survived day 9 and only 4 of those survived day 10 I think?

UNofficially:

Aliann, Capitals32, and Leslie have just Serena left
Fishtank has Wozniacki and Stosur left

So we'll have 1, or 3, or 4 winners.

If Fishtank picks Woz next and she wins Fishtank wins SP (may have chance to beat draw if Stosur wins) - otherwise we have 3 winners who are out of picks.

If Fishtank picks Stosur next then if:

Serena & Stosur win: all 4 tie with no picks left
Woz & Stosur: Fishtank wins and has pick to beat draw
Serena & Kerber: The other three win
Woz & Kerber: All 4 are eliminated and tie for win

Edited after being corrected!

Yes indeed. I was hoping for the Petkovic win but unfortunately Caro is still looking good.

I was so shocked by Kerber´s win, I even forgot the SP!

theotherdonald
09-08-2011, 05:16 PM
Gah, Pennetta! I'd have had Stosur and Serena left ... and a strong possibility of beating the draw.

Good luck, top 4! Rooting for Fishtank, though, so that one of us can beat the draw.

GlennHarman
09-08-2011, 11:05 PM
The recent notes have suggested that Fishtank has a chance to beat the draw, but Fishtank has used Stosur, so like the other 3, Fishtank only has one of the 4 semi-finalists left to pick. So my assessment (correct me if I am wrong), is that the women's SP will be finished after the semi-finals. If Wozniacki wins, the winner would be Fishtank. If S. Williams wins, the other 3 would go to a tie-breaker.

Whoops....didn't look back far enough. That's why I always say unofficial in my posts :) I still wish someone had Kerber still available to pick...that'd be awesome!
