Hello, and welcome to Day 5 of the Women's Pacific Life/Indian Wells Suicide Pool.

Your Day 5 Women's choice is from the 8 3nd round 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 5 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. We suggest doing it like this:

Day 1 Pick: Marta Domachowska (that was brilliant, wasn't it?)
Day 2 Pick: Anca Barna
Day 3 Pick: Gigi Fernandez
Day 4 Pick: Jennifer Capriati


Your Day 5 Womens Pick is due no later than 11:00 a.m. (PT) on Sunday, March 16 - that is 2:00 p.m. ET, 6:00 P.M. Greenwich Mean Time.

Good luck, and thanks for joining us!

Day 5 Matches:

Daniela Hantuchova SVK [5] vs. Jie Zheng CHN
Sania Mirza IND [21] vs. Shahar Peer ISR [9]

Alona Bondarenko UKR [15] vs. Amélie Mauresmo FRA [17]

All who didn't take her early are already out...

Except that my second choice was Craybas... But I still chose Wozniacki knowing full well that she had a great shot at Kirilenko. :mad:

And now I have to step into a quarter that I desperately wanted to stay out of as long as I could. While Dinara is my third choice to get out of the quarter, she could still easily make the semis, which would screw everything up for me.

This is the point where I get screwed every time. And I always make the same mistakes. I put off biting the bullet until it's too late. So now I'm biting a bullet... And I'm not sure it's the right bullet. I refuse to pick Shahar because I don't trust her, especially against Mirza, and I trust Dani to beat her even less. I ain't about to pick Alona over Mauresmo. Kuzy is the defending finalist, but for some reason, Radwanska is my top choice to get out of that quarter.

So, now I worry I'm rolling the dice too early.

I hate this game.
