Hello to our 2 remaining players (Febravo, and Inkblot1983), and welcome to Day 11, a/k/a Semi-final day, of our 9th Annual Australian Open Women's Suicide Pool, Sadly, this will be the last day of our game, as neither of you have enough players remaining to beat the draw.

You know the rules by now - and you know the one player that you have left to use in the game. But check the P&R just in case - we really would hate to see others laugh at you if you made that mistake!

Post your Day 11 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 11, that’s Thursday, 11:00 AM in AUSTRALIA. For those in the US, that is Wednesday 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."

Best of luck with your selection.

Thursday's Order of Play consists of the 2 Semifinal matches:

Na Li (CHN) [6] v Maria Sharapova (RUS) [2]
Victoria Azarenka (BLR) [1] v Sloane Stephens (USA) [29]

It's a shame to make it this far and still be unable to beat the draw, so close yet so far! As always, the TAT staff has done an amazing (and difficult) job running this, so thank you for the hard work. I'm assuming there is no tie-break question (as I have seen in the past), so I'll just go on with my pick (give me a second to double-check...yes, here it is).

Day 1: Heather Watson (GBR),
Day 2: Maria Kirilenko (RUS) [14],
Day 3: Sorana Cirstea (ROU) [27],
Day 4: Jamie Hampton (USA),
Day 5: Kirsten Flipkens (BEL),
Day 6: Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS),
Day 7: Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) [4],
Day 8: Sloane Stephens (USA) [29],
Day 9: Na Li (CHN) [6],
Day 10: Victoria Azarenka (BLR) [1],
Day 11: Maria Sharapova (RUS) [2], please.

No tiebreak, FEBravo - we only use them when someone is kind enough to donate prizes for our winners.

I guess this tournament ended up being a little too wacky to beat the draw. Oh well. I'm happy to have my first win (or at least I think I do)! Thanks again to the TAT staff for all their hard work! Of course, here's my last pick.

Sharapova, please
