Moose or Scotty: I will not have Internet access over the next 24 hours. If I make it to Day 10, can you put me down for Azarenka? Thank you!

We enter Day 9 with 21 players still in the game.

With no no-picks, we head straight to the bandwagons

1 - Agnies_ka "Is there a "z", Pat?" Radwanska, with 16

2 - Na "Isn't She Love-" Li, with 3

3 - Maria "Cougar" Sharapova, with 2.

doggone it, Kerber. I kind of thought this might happen in the Li/Radwanska match ... if only I could have survived to today

The ultimate Suicide Pool cruelty is knowing you'd have won tomorrow's match, if only you had survived today's, doubledog.

Did not expect to be eliminated with a Serena Williams pick...wow! Oh well, best result I've ever had, made it to a Top 4 finish. Can't be disappointed with that...until the next major everyone. Congrats to the final 2

Looks like the Women's Australian Open Suicide Pool is finished as both remaining players have only Sharapova left and so cannot beat the draw - congratulations to Febravo & Inkblot1983

Dang...one day away from winning. I had used Sloane too so at least I can take consolation in knowing I wouldn't have beaten the draw.

Congrats to the winners - particularly for picking Na Li to beat Radwanska, which was key. (I had Radwanska making the final - shows what I know.)

This may be a dumb question but do dollymix and myself still receive an award for losing yesterday? As the 2 players remaining both have the same pick and will tie for the gold, do we both receive a bronze?

Doesn't really matter or mean much I suppose, but I was getting a bit excited over getting so close to FINALLY winning a medal on here after years of playing.

As Slider from Top Gun once said "No points for second place!" That is, the SP's are gold medal only. Nice run though!
