    The IW/Miami Losers Lounge is...

    OPEN FOR BUSINESS

    Even though it's practice, we still need a friendly spot in the Tataverse (that's Tat-a-verse, not Tata-verse, a place where Simona Halep and Tamira Paszek can be spotted walking abreast) to crash land after elimination from the game. Best of all, with a combined Indian Wells/Miami Losers Lounge, you have the chance to land here up to 4 times in the next couple of weeks!

    If past years are any indication, this place will start filling up around 3:30 Eastern/12:30 Pacific time tomorrow. Hopefully, our good barkeeps Jessie and Morct, will have finshed unpacking the glasses, tapped a couple of kegs, and be ready to console you on that "looked so brilliant last night, but in hindsight what a dumb, dumb" pick that landed you here in the first place.

    That phrase needs to be written in golden letters, framed and hung behind the bar!

    Donald Young actually won a match

    Too bad I picked against him.

    Never pick against a qualifier, even if it is Donald Young.

    Guess I just volunteered myself? Anyways, here's my (unofficial) count for day 1 - I didn't double check, or check names...just counted picks. Not even going to pretend I could make anything as funny as beau's daily summaries.

    15 - Safarova
    13 - Dulko
    9 - Mirza
    6 - Zahlova Strycova
    4 - Mattek-Sands
    3 - Ondraskova
    2 - Cornet
    1 - Bacinsky
    1 - Schynder
    1 - Bammer
    1 - Vandeweghe
    1 - Sevastova
    1 - Date-Krumm
    1 - Cirstea

    We only lost 2 of 59? With all unseeded women? How is that even possible? Is that our best % for a day one ever or what?

    If I'm still not lazy later I may do some counting for day 2 as well.

    No, don't even try. Beau's just too good.

    And, I would think that has to be. That's a ridiculous percentage for such a bunch of toss-up matches. Of course, it just led me to the day 2 slaughter.

    Women day 2 (I skipped the pick that had Schynder for day 1...other than that no fact checking)

    25 - Peng
    6 - Jovanoski
    4 - Benesova
    4 - Safina
    4 - Chakvetadze
    2 - Szavay
    1 - Morita
    1 - Marino
    1 - Amanmuradova
    1 - Kerber

    Looks like we lost at least 8 to no pick as well. Looking a little more like a normal SP.
