Moose
05-29-2007, 11:37 AM
NOTE: Wednesday features a mix of 1st and 2nd round matches, due to the rains interuption of the schedule. As many players still have their first round match to be played tomorrow, for Day 3 YOU MUST choose from a 2nd round match as listed below. If your match has not played yet, you still MUST choose a Day 3 match

Welcome to Day 3 (Wednesday) of the French Open Suicide Pool. Day 3 features 16 matches from the TOP half of the Womens draw.

Remember, once you have selected a player, you cannot use them again. Be sure to consult the Picks and choices thread to make sure your choice is not one you used before (a duplicate choice results in your elimination).

Your choices are due by the start of play on Wednesday, May 30, 11:00 a.m. Paris Time (5:00 a.m. USA Eastern Time, 2:00 a.m. US West Coast time).

Good luck, everyone!

I think I'm still in... at least as long as Dulko wins today. It's a bit confusing. It appears they are going ahead with the 2nd Round of the top half before they get through the 1st Round of the bottom half, save for a few matches like Sharapova/Loit and Mauresmo/Granville. Anyhow, for my Day 3 pick I'm going with:

Schiavone

mainetennis

Venus Williams. I can't see Harkleroad beating her, and I can't see her beating Jankovic. (Of course, I couldn't see Hrbaty losing today, either.)

I'm totally confused...do we not have to pick from the bottom half in the first round?

In any case I pick Marion Bartoli.

Urn (and everyone else that asked):

At the beginning of the thread, we explained why we were only doing 1 1st round pick.

With the rain delays, the bottom portion of the draw got pushed off...for days.

If we would have required a pick, it would have been unfair to those who took a lower half match. They owuld have been required to make two picks from the bottom half, while most players only had to make one.

So in order to be fair to those players affected by the rain delay, we decided the best approach was to just have one first round pick from everyone, and then continue on with the 2nd round. This made it a level playing fireld for everyone.

2) YES, you have to make another pick for tomorrow from the listed matches.

Dulko hasn't played, but YES, you have to pick a player for Day 3. Your pick is contingent on Dulko winning (i.e. should Dulko lose, you're out no matter how your Day 3 pick performs)

I had a near heart-attack caused by a certain Miss Castano this afternoon, and we've only had day one. Staring at a scordboard praying for the numbers to change in favour of a woman that I've never met and couldn't pick out of a line-out (until yesterday!) means we are definitely in SP mode!

I may regret this later, as with the draw she could go anywhere, but for round 2 (part 1), I'm hedging my bets on:

Na Li

It stands for TennisWorld. Many tribe members of TW are participating in the Suicide Pool this time around. They are also competing among themselves as well as with all of us. That's the reason why they're distinguishing themselves with the TW.

Just under 20 minutes to go before the start of play! If you're still in and need make a pick... DO IT! :p
