Welcome to the 4th round. and Week 2 of the Roland Garros Suicide Pool. The good news: for surviving to this point, your reward is a choice of all 8 4th round matches. The RG schedulers always put the entire 4th round on the schedule for the ladies on Sunday.

The bad news. The walls are closing in. The matches are tougher. And you've probably used up a few of the remaining players, while trying to save a few for later this this. Probably not a whole lot of options for today!

PLEASE: Remeber to check your previous picks. Players will be eliminated for a duplicate pick. IT's happened before, and its a shame when you get to this point of the game.

Your pick is due before the start of play Sunday 6/3/07 - 11:00 a.m. Paris Time. East Coast USA is 6 hours different/West Coast USA 9 hours different.

Good luck everyone !

Also have a message from Charlie02123, who asked that if he couldn't get back on tonight, we post Vaidisova as his pick.

(I'm always afraid I'll forget to post these, so I try to not leave it to chance)

I think this match is riskier than it looks, but


Vaidisova

Vaidisova.


Yikes... I'm the 7th person to pick her out of 8 contestants...

Moose
06-02-2007, 08:22 AM
it'd be awesome to use a woman you haven't used yet, who will win today, and then lose her next match.

My original game plan has held up so far (even if 4 of my 5 picks have gone three sets), so no reason to change it for today.

My pick: Svetlana Kuznetsova

With everyone sensibly choosing Vaidisova, I'll gamble on her wrist playing up and go with Lucie Safarova.

'Veni, vidi, vinci' said Caesar. 'Venus's over (Round 3), Vaidisova, Vinci's over (Round 1)' says netplay, so I pick:


NICOLE VAIDISOVA!

Nicole Vaidisova is the most viable option for me too, so I'm hopping on her bus- glad I didn't pick her earler (well, if she wins during Day 7, of course).

I'm done thinking about it. Kuznetsova for me.

06-02-2007, 12:45 PM
I'm picking Vaidisova of my own free will. It just makes sense.

I'm soooo tempted to pick the Isreali to upset the #3 seed, which would make my brackets look suddenly informed... but... Nicole it is.

06-02-2007, 01:06 PM

So just to clarify- for all remaining rounds, we only need to make 1 pick per round? That is, we only have 4 picks to go (counting this one)?

If this is the case, then I lamentably join the Vaidisova bandwagon.
If this is not the case, then I lamentably join the Vaidisova bandwagon.

As you can see, it's not really an issue now, but it will be soon. Thanks.

I guess I'm gonna have to pick VAIDISOVA too(though Ivanovic is looking tempting, I'll have to ignore her for now).

Danielle
06-02-2007, 02:37 PM
I've spent WAAAY too much time thinking about this...and I just changed my mind once again...

Ana Ivanovic, please (realizing I may seriously shoot myself in the foot with this pick...)

that's correct.

If you look in the SP thread, I always publush the "scheduled" order for the tournament when it is posted on the Slam's official website. Each one has its own little quirk, so I like to make sure everyone is informed. At Wimby, we skip Sunday, have that incredible Monday. At the USO, we have three days of mens 1st round matches (with that dangling 2nd round mens match as the night tennis event on 1st Tuesday).

At the French, the women combine on middle Sunday...but the men stay seperate for a few more days.

Vadisova

Well, before I read the thread, I'd decided between the two women it would be best for me to pick. I decided to save Vaidisova, so I'm glad I'm not on that bandwagon. But my second choice suddenly has picked up a shorter one. My pick is Ana Ivanovic.
