    '08, I'm pretty sure. And, really, PEHK had tons of opportunities to go up two sets to one and blew them all.

    Curiously, I found out that James Blake is the only pick that has landed me in here more than once, so he is officially on the no-pick list. Oh, I also found out that 2 players have landed me in here both as someone I picked and someone who beat the person I picked. Jarkko Nieminen and Maria Kirilenko. I'm avoiding them like the plague.
    I also highly recommend Paul-Henri Mathieu.

    Not that I'm bitter.

    That was a fun match... just because of the schoolgirl-level bitchy fighting between them.

    I think I've picked him a couple times in matches he should have won easily and he scraped through just barely. I'm very much avoiding him too.

    Still have NO idea what on Earth that was all about. Then, by the end of the match, they seemed to have forgotten all about it. Almost like they weren't actually being catty for the first two sets.
    I'll miss you!

    We're baaaaacckk! Please do not listen to what most TATers will say about picking us in the Suicide pool! We'll bring you good luck. If anyone sees Marat walking around, he's ours!

    Would anyone like a gravy boat?

    After a long absence, I am back and ready to drink. The only thing keeping me from getting hammered is that Day 1 hasn't started.

    Good luck to all.

    Re: AOSP Losers Lounge is OPEN FOR BUSINESS

    Already open? I have put winning another SP in my to do list. I particularly like this SP since play begins quite late for me, so I have all day long to brood whether I should pick Li Na.

    I do miss Ai though. She has safely gotten me through many first rounds.

    Um, I haven't forgotten Severine Bremond and what she did to Ai at Wimbledon a few years back. Another SP catastrophe.

    But I agree, on the right surface and in the right circumstances, Ai was normally a pretty good pick in the early rounds.

    There was also the Makarova fiasco at USO. Ai really wasn't the same the last few years

    I must have already been out of that pool because that doesn't ring a bell.

    The great thing about Ai was that, even if it didn't go her way, you knew full well that she's at least try to win... Which seperates her from so many.
