Hello, and welcome to Day 1 of the Women's Sony Ericsson/Miami Suicide Pool.

Your Day 1 Women's choice is from the 16 matches featuring non-seeded players from the top 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 SE/Mi is a "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. (ET) on Wednesday, March 26 - that is 8:00 a.m. Pacific Time, 3:00 P.M. Greenwich Mean Time.

Good luck, and thanks for joining us!

Vesnina.

In a way, I am honoring the memory of past (and future) champion Kim Clijsters-Lynch by making this choice. Because I will never, ever forget the state of shock I found myself in watching Kimmie go down to this lady in the 2nd round at Miami in 2006.


Day 1 pick: Jill Craybas

I used to love me some Zakopalova too, aedra, but she was incredibly negative and unimpressive when I saw her at IW. She may very well be the only player whose stock dropped because of IW, for me anyhow.

Poor Vlad. Are you going to blame him if Nathalie loses?:p

I've been down that road before....and the pain never truly goes away (Did you hear me.....jEeNnE?!?!?!??!!1111111 NEVAH!!!111:p;))

Aw, hell.

Harkleroad. It's probably bandwagon status by now, but Gagliardi must be 10 years past her sell date.
