    But whoever they pick, they think she is going to lose the next Round!
    So it is more like

    Williams 3 Vs Henin 11

    you're right. I had advanced a round too far. And now they WON'T play each other, which is going to make things difficult for SP players counting on that match-up.

    Updated counts above. Will we lose 5 or 41 today?

    This is so not a good time to realize I've already picked Wozniacki (although better than tomorrow morning, I guess)

    ....I'm actually nervous right now about taking Caroline over Franny. Franny leads their head to head 2:1.

    I'm still considering switching to Skeevy from Petrova. Just 1-0 H2H, though

    AH, I had been looking up various records- and actually, Caroline is 2:1 against Petrova- including beating Nadia twice this year. So, perhaps it's best to pick Petrova.... (I'm hoping to find out more about this doubles default business today, too.)

    Re: UPDATED Women's RG SP Picks & Results

    There are 8 women in the Roland Garros quarterfinals, and with tomorrow's pick, I already have used 5 of them in the pool!

    EDIT: Oh, and did I mention that I used one of them on Day 1 in the pool?!?!?

    You can never have more than 6 heading into the quarters, and 4 is pretty normal. After all, you only need 4 to beat the draw.

    I always struggle with when to bite the bullet. I did a pretty good job throughout the first week of staying out of the middle two quarters as much as possible. But it turns out that staying out of those sections is ultimately what did me in because the bullet I bit on Day 8 (combined with my Day 1 blunder) ended up shooting myself in the foot. I can't have a pick for the final, and a lot can still go wrong between now and then.

    I'm trying to stay happy for Nadia, though, in spite of the fact that she bit me twice. LOL!

    I see. You may have 4, but you don't have one in each quarter.

    Nope. I've used both in the bottom quarter. I'd be okay if this were an event where the halves of the draw had come together.

    Has anyone done a count on the number that can still beat the draw? I haven't checked and am guessing it's a decent number in spite of the large number that already has used Elena but still have Nadia and Caroline and/or Fran.

    Nothing automatic about the Caro/Fran match, either. Lots can still go wrong.

    I blame Pennetta. She was supposed to beat Caroline, and should have. Don't even start me on my faith in Venus Williams

    Re: UPDATED Women's RG SP Picks & Results

    Anyone know why Stosur/Petrova retired from their doubles match? I think Caro gets to the final at this point so not sure who to pick between the hotmess that will be Elena/Petrova.
