Moose
05-30-2007, 11:45 AM
Welcome to Day 4 (Thursday) of the French Open Suicide Pool. We're finally on schedule, and hopefully we've had our last full days of rainouts.

PLEASE NOTE: Serena's 2nd round match against Sequera is on the schedule for tomorrow...but it is a carryover match from Day 3. Therefore, this match cannot be chosen. All of today's picks are from the bottom half of the draw.

Day 4 features 16 matches from the BOTTOM 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 Thursday, 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!

ONE MORE NOTE: Please specify WHICH Bondarenko you choose if you choose one. Both Alona and Kateryna are playing

Amelie Mauresmo (FRA)[5] vs. Nathalie Dechy (FRA)
Jill Craybas (USA) vs. Maria Sharapova (RUS)[2]
Meghann Shaughnessy (USA) vs. Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS)[3]
Ana Ivanovic (SRB)[7] vs. Sania Mirza (IND)
Agnes Szavay (HUN) vs. Anna Chakvetadze (RUS)[9]
Vera Dushevina (RUS) vs. Katarina Srebotnik (SLO)[17]
Olga Poutchkova (RUS) vs. Daniela Hantuchova (SVK)[12]
Patty Schnyder (SUI)[14] vs. Kateryna Bondarenko (UKR)
A. Medina Garrigues (ESP)[24] vs. Elena Likhovtseva (RUS)

Ooh. If I make my pick...

BONDAROVA!

...can I sneak in with two chances at victory? I'll bet not, so I'll be more specific and make my pick for Day 4...

ALONA BONDAROVA!

I Love Lucie Safarova. I think Pratt to win that first match was somewhat of a fluke.

Hmm. I'm vacillating even as I type this. Picking her early (as in first day) at the Australian cost me a chance to beat the draw, but I'm leaning toward Lucie Safarova again. Then again, I see she's in a quarter with a couple of mental midgets, and a wonky server with a bad leg and non-affinity for clay. So I go back to my second choice, Shahar Peer.

This part of the draw is nasty. A ridiculous number of players have a shot at making the latter stages, so need to be avoided.

Miss A. Bondarenko seems like the most obvious choice, but I'm avoiding the crowds today, so instead it's time to bring out the big guns:

Gisela Dulko!

(she could do anything in this tournament, but I can't see myself being gutsy enough to pick her again (unless Maria loses, but I'll take my chances)).
