View Full Version : DAY 1 (Sunday) Pick: RG Womens Suicide Pool



Moose
05-25-2007, 12:16 PM
Hello and welcome new players and returnees to day 1 of the French Open Women’s suicide pool.

Normally, you will be making one pick EACH DAY of the women’s event, and once you use a player, you can never use them again. There will be a “picks and results thread” posted later so you can check the choices you have already made.

It is very important you follow the posted schedule of play for the day.

Remember, for this one major, you have the option NOT to choose a match from Sunday's offerings and wait until Monday, when there will be a bigger selection from which to choose. BUT, if you choose a match from Sunday and your player loses, you're out of the women’s suicide pool contest. There will be a separate thread for Monday's day 1 choice so that we don't confuse everyone. For those that survive the Sunday/Monday day 1 pick, your day 2 pick will be due before the start of play on Tuesday as usual.

If you choose to pick from the few Sunday matches, post your Day 1 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in Paris (11:00 A.M. Paris Time Sunday May 27th). For those in the US, Paris is six (6) hours later than the east coast, nine (9) hours on the West coast. Don’t be late as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will.

Best of luck and thanks for joining us.

SUNDAY MATCHES:
Justine Henin (BEL)[1] vs. Elena Vesnina (RUS)
Alize Cornet (FRA) vs. Venus Williams (USA)[26]
Tsvetana Pironkova (BUL) vs. Serena Williams (USA)[8]
Severine Bremond (FRA)[31] vs. Michaella Krajicek (NED)
Dinara Safina (RUS)[10] vs. Yuliana Fedak (UKR)
Mathilde Johansson (FRA) vs. Anna-Lena Groenefeld (GER)
Sandra Kloesel (GER) vs. Na Li (CHN)[16]
Yvonne Meusburger (AUT) vs. Francesca Schiavone (ITA)[23]
Tamira Paszek (AUT) vs. Aiko Nakamura (JPN)
Olivia Sanchez (FRA) vs. Shenay Perry (USA)
Melinda Czink (HUN) vs. Tzipora Obziler (ISR)
Aleksandra Wozniak (CAN) vs. Ashley Harkleroad (USA)

one last reminder...for Day 1, you may pick one of these Sunday mayches, or wait for Monday's. Thereafter, you wil make a pick every day.

To avoid confusion, pleased refrain from making Monday choices in the Sunday threads even if you think you know who is playing on Monday.

05-26-2007, 06:38 PM
Well, I picked on the men's side, but looking at these choices, I see two kinds of matches. Ones with players I'm saving for later rounds and ones with outcomes in doubt. So I think I'm going to hold off until Monday's matches to pick a day one women's match. Good luck to those who pick today!

Incidentally, if you check out head-to-head records at the Sony Ericsson WTA website, try entering 'li' in one of the entry fields and see how many entries you have to choose from when the reply screen says "which 'li' are you talking about"

thanks Catz! Fascinating. I didn't expect so many to play today, when we have Monday matches available as well.

Just a reminder...less than 4 hours to make a Sunday pick.

If you don't make one, you can still make your 1st pick from Monday's order of play. We'll have that thread started sometime shortly after the order of play is published on the official RG website

If you want to make your first pick from today's order of play, you need to do it before 11 AM Paris time. If you miss that deadline, there's a second and final chance to start your SP campaign tomorrow. Read this thread's opening post for more details! :)

The WTA sunday picks thread is hereby closed. Any and all picks based on today's order of play will no longer be accepted. Good luck to all who entered the sunday start to the SP!

Monday's order of play will give you a second chance to start your 2007 Roland Garros Suicide Pool campaign :) Keep your eyes on the board/the recent posts bar, AND read the opening post of this thread :)
