Martina Hingis

I don't see her winning against Pierce, so this is the last time I could pick her. Shouldn't be a problem against that Finnish girl.

And a special thanks to Svetlana Kuznetsova for not crapping out on me like Monfils did. Good job Sveta!

She's playing well, so I hope this is a safe bet. Francesa Schiavone.

Right - I'm going to put my money (or my 'suicide life' (is that an oxymoron or what)) where my mouth is. As I've predicted that Martina will beat Mary Pierce, I am going to pick

Mary Pierce

Frankly I don't trust anyone else in this half of the draw. In any case she'll get thumped by Clijsters in the semi's so I hope that even if she beats Martina, it doesn't come back to haunt me later on.

Besides I'm desperate to stay in this competition beyond the first week ;D

My Day Four pick:

Martina Hingis

Nevermind, I'll stick with Hingis.


If she blows me out ... [smiley=furious3.gif]

For me, this decision comes down to Myskina, Schiavone, or Ivanovic...looking ahead, Ivanovic probably has a pretty easy next round, so I'll save her. Basically, looking at the rankings of their opponents, Myskina's opponent is ranked 89 and playing her first Oz Open. Schiavone's opponent is ranked 44, played in Melbourne before, and has made the 2nd round at the US Open (and the French, irrelevant).

My pick is Princess Anastasia (Myskina).

By the way, for all you Hingis lovers out there, don't you wish former top 20 mainstay Sandrine Testud would come out of retirement too? I noticed the other day Hingis owns a career 16-0 record against her.

I LOVED Sandrine, but she couldn't get over the Hingis hump, lol. I think she's too old to make a serious comeback tho. Damn :-/

Hey Bartman:

Through Day 3, we're done to 23 players in the womens game. We started with 92.

Its even worse on the mens side...from starting with 98, we are down in the teens there.

Good luck with all your picks everybody! I tallied the votes, and Martina Hingis is our big suicide pool favorite with 9 votes! Schiavone is second with 5 votes, Myskina has 4, Pierce has 2, and Safina, Dulko, and Bartoli each have one.
