Hello, and welcome to Day 1 of the Women's Pacific Life/Indian Wells Suicide Pool. (In case you are wondering, Men's main draw play does not begin until Thursday, so our 1st men's pick thread will be opened tomorrow).

Your Day 1 Women's choice is from the 16 matches from the bottom half of the womens draw. As always, you will be making one pick each day, and once you use a player, you cannot use them again for the remainder of the tournament.

Post your Day 1 Womens selection by responding in this thread. Since the Pacific Life (and Miami) are both "practice" pools, we will not keep a formal Picks and Results thread, so it is your responsibility to self-score your way through the tournament. We encourage you to do this by listing all your previous picks in your post for each day (simply cut and paste from the day before), as this has proven the best way to track your picks from our experience.

Your Day 1 Womens Pick is due no later than 11:00 a.m. (PT) on Wednesday, March 12 - that is 2:00 p.m. ET, 6:00 P.M. Greenwich Mean Time.

Good luck, and thanks for joining us!

Day 1 Matches:

J Craybas (USA) vs [Q] B Zahlavova Strycova (CZE)
[WC] A Haynes (USA) vs S Errani (ITA)
[Q] M Czink (HUN) vs C Wozniacki (DEN)
N Dechy (FRA) vs M Koryttseva (UKR)
[Q] S Cohen-Aloro (FRA) vs L Osterloh (USA)
E Makarova (RUS) vs M Tu (USA)
T Perebiynis (UKR) vs A Harkleroad (USA)
K Zakopalova (CZE) vs M Salerni (ARG)
Y Meusburger (AUT) vs E Gallovits (ROU)
Z Yan (CHN) vs [WC] U Radwanska (POL)
S Peng (CHN) vs T Malek (GER)
J Zheng (CHN) vs E Loit (FRA)
O Savchuk (UKR) vs Y Shvedova (RUS)
M Domachowska (POL) vs T Pironkova (BUL)

Could not help myself. It was either Errani or Wozniacki and I believe Caroline has a better chance. Sorry.

I forgot how hard making a Day 1 pick at the PLO (and Miami) can be.

Given her great start of the year on hard courts, I'm going to take

Marta Domachowska - who must have gone to the same "Glamour Photo" studio that Petrova did for her official WTA mug shot
