View Full Version : Women's Day 10 (Wed) Pick - AO Suicide Pool

01-21-2013, 06:04 PM
Hello to the 3 or 5 of you (depending on the results of the Sharapova/Makarova match, which comes on too late for this East Coaster) that remain alive to play in Day 10 of our 9th Annual Australian Open Suicide Pool. It's down to the final three picks, and you are among the less than 2% that have gotten this far in our little parlor game.

There is a “Picks and Results thread” posted so you can re-check the choices you have already made (so that you never duplicate a pick). Now would be about the worst possible time to duplicate a pick, so we highly recommend that you check before finalizing your selection.

It is very important you follow the schedule of play for the day posted below.

Post your Day 10 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the scheduled start of play for the day in Melbourne, rain or shine. For day 10, that’s Wednesday, 11:00 AM in AUSTRALIA. For those in the US, that is Tuesday 7:00 PM EST, 4:00 PM PST. Please do not be late, as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. This thread will be locked at the deadline, so please don't wait until the last minute or you may find it locked when you hit "post."

If you change your mind after you make your pick, and before the deadline, please make a second post advising us of your change - PLEASE DO NOT make your change in your original post, as we often go through the posts before closing to begin the task of updating the picks and results, and we might miss a change if you edit your original pick.

Best of luck!

Wednesday's Order of Play consists of the remaining 2 Quarterfinal matches from the TOP half of the women’s draw:

Victoria Azarenka (BLR) [1] v Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS)
Serena Williams (USA) [3] v Sloane Stephens (USA) [29]
