its all your thread, Peterskan. And for getting to Day 7, you benefit from the merger of the draw today, and have another 8 matches to choose from.

Mary Pierce (FRA)[21]
vs. Patty Schnyder (SUI)[8]

Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS)[6]
vs. Justine Henin-Hardenne (BEL)[10]

Lindsay Davenport (USA)[1]
vs. Kim Clijsters (BEL)[14]

Nuria Llagostera Vives (ESP)
vs. Maria Sharapova (RUS)[2]

Sesil Karatantcheva (BUL)
vs. Emmanuelle Gagliardi (SUI)

Elena Dementieva (RUS)[4]
vs. Elena Likhovtseva (RUS)[16]

Nadia Petrova (RUS)[7]
vs. Elena Bovina (RUS)[12]

Francesca Schiavone (ITA)[22]
vs. Ana Ivanovic (SCG)[29]

Francesca Schiavone (ITA)[22]
vs. Ana Ivanovic (SCG)[29]


I'm gonna reorder this by quarter:

Lindsay Davenport (USA)[1]
vs. Kim Clijsters (BEL)[14]
Mary Pierce (FRA)[21]
vs. Patty Schnyder (SUI)[8]
------------------------------------
Elena Dementieva (RUS)[4]
vs. Elena Likhovtseva (RUS)[16]
Sesil Karatantcheva (BUL)
vs. Emmanuelle Gagliardi (SUI)
-----------------------------------------
Nadia Petrova (RUS)[7]
vs. Elena Bovina (RUS)[12]
Francesca Schiavone (ITA)[22]
vs. Ana Ivanovic (SCG)[29]
---------------------------------
Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS)[6]
vs. Justine Henin-Hardenne (BEL)[10]
Nuria Llagostera Vives (ESP)
vs. Maria Sharapova (RUS)[2]
------------------------------------------

Hmmm ... let's see ...
.01 The highlighted players are not available to me.
.02 Sharapova is an easy bet, but no point picking her just yet
.03 Henin might not win against Kuzzy - even if she does, this is not the round to go with Justine
.04 Shiavone has come to the end of her rope anyway
.05 Ditto Likhovtseva
.06 Big Mary might prevail, but I won't bet on it.
.07 I'm not touching Lindsay/Kim
.08 Ditto Sesil & Emmanuelle - too unpredictable - they'll be fodder for Likhovtsva if she upsets Dementieva: a nice pathway through the maze for me if that happens
.09 ergo ....

My Day 7 pick is Petrova

Downside: this will finish the 3rd quarter for me, inasmuch as I can't imagine Francesca beating Ivanovic and then choosing her to beat a victorious Petrova.

good call on Petrova!
Day 8 is a freebie - women were not supposed to play on Monday, and the scheduled matches are holdovers from Day 7, where you allready successfully called a winner.

We will see you for Day 9, with your QF prediction.

Actually, Petrova has an abyssman record against Schiavone, something like 1-4 or 1-5 down, with Petrova only winning their first meeting. Strange head-to-head stat. And Schiavone has beaten her on a variety of surfaces, including clay. I never would have expected that.
