    Day 10 (Wed) Womens USO Suicide Pool Pick

    Welcome to day 10, and the remaining half of quarterfinals of TAT's Fourth Annual US Open Womens Suicide Pool.

    You will be making one pick EACH DAY of the Women’s event (NOT one each round), and once you use a player, you can never use them again. There is an UPDATED “picks and results thread” posted so you can check the choices you have already made.

    IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU FOLLOW THE POSTED SCHEDULE OF PLAY BELOW. AS ALWAYS, BE CAREFUL.

    Post your Day 10 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by the start of play in New York, rain or shine, that is Wednesday, September 3, 2008 at 11:00 AM New York time (east coast), 8:00 AM on the west coast. For those in Europe, London is five (5) hours later than the east coast. Don’t be late as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. This thread will be locked at 11:00 AM EDT, so please don't wait until the last minute or you may find it locked when you hit "post".

    If you change your mind after you make your pick, and before the deadline, please make a second post advising us of your change - PLEASE DO NOT make your change in your original post, as we often go through the posts before closing to begin the task of updating the picks and results, and we might miss a change if you edit your original pick.

    Best of luck, and thank you for joining us!

    WEDNESDAY'S schedule consists of 2 QUARTERFINAL MATCHES FROM THE TOP half of the women’s draw:

    PENNETTA, Flavia ITA [16] v v SAFINA, Dinara RUS [6]
    WILLIAMS, Serena USA [4] v WILLIAMS, Venus USA [7]
    With Lucas Pouille at Indian Wells (2018)

    Just so we're clear, if Jankovic loses, all 6 of us are "winners" of the USOSP, right? Including Charlie...

    Assuming Jankovic does win (although maybe now that I can taste my first medal I want Bammer to win) ... my Day 10 pick is ...

    Safina please

    So let's see...unless Jankovic loses and I'm sharing my 'victory' with five other lucky losers, my options are:

    A - Choose Penetta (since I already chose Safina) and hope that by some miracle she wins.

    B - Choose a Williams sister (since I have both available) and then hope they lose to Penetta (who has somehow miraculously beaten Safina) in the semi-finals because I have no one left to choose from in the other semi-final if Jankovic wins.

    So all my hopes ride on Penetta rising way beyond her seeding or Bammer beating Jankovic.

    I can't make this decision until I absolutely have to. I'll get back to this thread after the Jankovic match. Until then...

    GO BAMMER!

    I still choose to be nervous about her, maybe because of who her brother is, but this pick is going to be Dinara Safina

    Oooookay, then.

    With no Bammer victory, my hopes are pinned securely to Flavia Pennetta (whose name I misspelled when I typed it). And if my choices are picking her to win on Day 10 against Safina or picking her to win in the Semis against Venus or Serena, all I have to say is that my Day 10 pick on the Women's side is...

    PENNETTA!

    ...unless some wacky dream tonight points me in the other direction.

    At least by the Del Potro/Murray match, there will either be one or four players left (unless someone make a last minute change)
