    Ladies' Day 1 Wimbledon SP Pick

    Yes, yes, this din is far far too clamorous. Let's quieten ourselves.

    It is my responsibility to officially open this sixth consecutive running of the
    "Suicide Pool" here at The Championships, Wimbledon. How very morbid that name is, though as we members of the All-England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club are fond of saying: why break with tradition? Amidst all this fair verbiage lie the rules for participation in this hallowed tradition.

    I implore you, especially if you haven't yet participated in one of these contests: peruse the regulations so as to not make any mistakes, for even the smallest blunder could seal your fate.

    Each day of this event requires you to make a selection from the Ladies' draw (not just once per round), and keep in mind that once you have decided upon that player, you may not choose her again for the remainder of the contest. A short time after the commencement of the opening day of play, there will appear the "Picks and Results" thread that will list all participants and their picks for all days of play. I encourage you to periodically check this thread for a couple of reasons:

    1. It will help you not to duplicate a choice, which is against the rules. This does, regretfully, happen.
    2. It will help you locate any errors that may have been made regarding your selections.

    This thread will also contain post-pick analyses of the selections, guaranteed to be correct at least 0% of the time. Often insightful and often wrong, they are nonetheless worth skimming.

    It is imperative that you follow our posted schedule of play for the day.

    Today's matches include the 32 first round matches from the BOTTOM half of the Ladies' draw.

    Post your Day 1 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in London, rain or shine, that is, Monday, June 21st at 12:00 PM London time. For those in the US, London is five (5) hours later than the East coast, and eight (8) hours later than the West coast. Don’t be late as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. The thread will be locked promptly at the deadline, so do not wait until the final moments.

    Since the object of the game is to pick a player who you are sure is going to win on that day, should your player withdraw, she obviously cannot win her match. You do not get a substitute (lucky loser) if this happens. You have chosen a player, not a spot in the draw. To this end, you might want to scout your player and make sure there is not a known injury or illness issue.

    If you change your mind before the deadline after you have made your pick, you may change your selection. To do this, please make a second post advising us of your change. DO NOT make your change by editing your original post, as we often go through the posts well before closing the thread to begin the task of updating the picks and results, and we might miss a change if you edit your original pick.

    We here at the AELTC wish you the fondest fortunes in your endeavors. Sincerely.

    Monday’s schedule of play is all 32 matches from the BOTTOM half of the Ladies' draw:

    NOTE: Both Bondarenkos (A. and K.) are in this section of the draw, so if you choose one, you MUST specify which you are picking or your selection will not be valid. THANK YOU!
