Well, I may not win, but at least I can say I picked the first woman of the year! With her incosistency at Slams, best to take Francesca Schiavone ITA (14) now and not be tempted later.

Hello and welcome to day 1 of the Australian Open women’s suicide pool.

Thanks Moose!


I am a little bit nervous about Katarina Srebotnik. She's had a good start to the year, and she is playing an Aussie Wildcard, but that's not really a good or bad thing, it's... well... a wildcard.

After going through the draw you posted, I'm stuck between two: Katarina Srebotnik and Lucie Safarova. I'm nervous since I went out in the first round during the U.S. Open and I'm hoping to do better here. Having said that, I will choose Lucie Safarova (please win!)

Wow. Looking at results from previous Australian Opens, the women's side is full of inconsistent results. So I'm just going to go with a seeded player I don't think will win the whole thing at this point and hope everything shakes out okay. Therefore, my Day One pick is...

FRANCESCA SCHIAVONE!

Hey, it's time for a new season of Suicide Pools!!

I can't believe how difficult the start of the womens is this year, there's no obvious choice (unlike the mens).

For me it's down to, Krajicek, Ruano Pascual and Likhoveseva (I can't pick Safarova - she's killed me twice before!). I don't want to pick anyone seeded - not that they are much better.

I have no idea which one to go for. Krajicek is the most obvious,

so I'll go for ... Likhovtseva (I have no idea why!)

Good luck eveyone.
