Just a note for all - Updates will be later than usual for the next few days.

Moose

I was afraid if we waited for completing the third round, we'd only have 3 people left. And I'm in NY for the next few days, and it is much easier to manage a clean P&R than wading through 250 reds to find a pick.

Gutted to change my pick at the last minute from Jankovic to Halep!
Mind you, Jankovic is not looking that clever, as she is favourite to win her quarter. The smartest pick was probably Wozniacki.

suliso
08-30-2014, 04:31 AM
The smartest, but still realistic pick was Peng. I've changed at the last minute from her to Sharapova expecting either Venus or Halep come out of that quarter. Now I'm in a bad spot unless she loses soon.

I'm really surprised about people choosing Makarova in such numbers. Not that it's a bad pick, but there were several others seemingly equally good.

We are below 20 going into the quarterfinals. And there are still 4 picks to be made to beat the draw!

Still time for someone to make a change, but with everyone still alive having made a pick, right now we stand at

9 Bencic v 9 Peng
1 Wozniacki

So it looks like by day's end, we will be down to 10 (or 9).

I've resisted all temptation to say much of anything in fear of jinxing my USOSP run ... but having made it through today (phew) I have to say :woot::tatrocks::wiggle::banana::rockon::thumbsup: :yahoo::woohoo:

I've barely made it past day 4 or 5 in recent years after a great run many years ago! So exciting times for me and hoping to win my next virtual medal this year! As always thanks to all who organize and make the play more fun!

Anyone who has made it this far in the women's pool deserves both a medal and a no-strings-attached one night stand! Well done!

We are down to 10, with a chance of single digits by days end. That is after starting with 302.

Oh, and there are still 3 picks to make to beat the draw :)

I'd like to pretend that was my master plan all along, but again not to jinx myself, I never looked that far down the play, but yes those are my remaining picks in order.

By my count, there are 5 people that can still beat the draw. All could follow the route your describe. Looks like only one person (me!) could also choose to use Makarova.

All need Wozniacki to win tonight, so our day isn't over yet...

My thought was winner of pova vs woz into finals. I had that plan from last few rounds. Got lucky/very unlucky in how others fell

I will be very surprised if Peng Shuai loses to either Wozniacki or Errani. She is playing better than either of them.

Unless some brave soul picks Makarova those who have only Serena left can still end up with medals.

I'm not sure I've ever seen Wozniacki play so well! It was amazing tennis!

Question for Wozniacki is can she play two more matches like last night. Peng is playing well as she has not lost a set in 5 matches. Believe her winning that 125K tournament earlier this year may have rubbed loads of confidence. In 2011, Peng and Wozniacki had a three set battle in Brussels where Wozniacki prevailed in winning her only red clay tournament in her career.

Those 5 players who had no other option, but to pick Serena for today might be the winners overall :-)

One of the Vika pickers also had Makarova available. The other 4 only had Azarenka.

Should Vika lose, and Serena win, 5 will advance, but only 4 will be able to make a semifinal pick - of those 3 will have Wozniacki available, and 1 will have Peng.

Unless both Serena and Vika lose today there will be a finalist. Not bad for such an unpredictable pool. There have been several recently which were over after QF's.

Did you see Wozniacki tonight?

She was awfully impressive, no doubt. But on the road to the semis, Peng has hit 110 winners with 59 errors, the best ratio I've ever seen at the U.S. Open. Wozniacki has hit 83 winners with 66 errors, and she was only plus-1 in that category until her flawless performance last night.

Should be a very interesting match. I'm counting on Peng to continue defying her career history and play like she did back in 2005 when she whipped Clijsters 6-4, 6-4 in Los Angeles in a summer when Clijsters won every other hard court tournament she entered and barely lost any sets along the way. If both players are on top of their game, Peng has more firepower. But if Wozniacki plays like she did last night, Peng can't have any letdowns.

ptmcmahon

So it's 3 Wozniackis vs 1 Peng?

Moose
09-05-2014, 09:35 AM
Today will determine a winner(s) of the pool. If Peng wins, OrangeBoy19 takes the title for our 10th Annual USOSP Women's Pool. If Caro wins, Gibbermiata, JanetB and PGLive21 win the pool.

Also, if Caro wins, our three winners will need to check back in for the tiebreak questions, which will be posted mid-day Saturday, and will need to PM their answer to me before the women's final start of play on Sunday.
