    I learned this at some Australian Open Suicide Pool. I just avoid any match where she's involved because she can zone in -or out- anytime.

    Dolonc serving for the first set. Maybe I should start looking at the cocktail menu...

    I have a bad feeling about the Sorana match. I could have picked Flipkens instead...

    Giorgi will win because I need her to lose for YCWJ. That way I will have lost my #1 and #2 seeds in both the women's and the men's.

    At least I'll have someone to blame if that happens.

    I hope there's something Serbian on the menu.

    And just to put some icing on that proverbial cupcake, Sorana finishes the day off by taking out another 18.

    Just freaking crazy.

    I think rolling a dice has a better shot in making the correct choice for Day 3
    than trying to make a logical choice..

    I have considered 3 different picks, and they all lost today..yup.

    Our Top 3:

    1) Lucie "Don't call me Selima Sfar"-ova, with 57

    2) Jelena "Janko Doodle Dandy" Jankovic, with 26

    3) Sorana "When a gal meets the Queen of Romania, does she" Cirstea, with 18


    Our other picks for today:

    Bartoli - 5
    Cornet - 6
    Flipkens - 2
    Hsieh - 2
    Ivanovic - 16

    Makarova - 16
    Navarro - 5
    Puig - 9
    Shvedova - 1
    Stephens - 6
    Tsurenko - 8
    Wozniacki - 14
    191 - 142 = 49 moving on to Day 4. Just about 85% of our entire pool has been eliminated in the first 3 days.

    Re: Ladies' Picks and Results - Wimbledon SP

    I feel better about Safarova going out now that Jankovic lost. I don't typically follow SP after I've gone out but will this time. I didn't choose several players because I knew I'd need them later on such as Bartoli and also Makarova, if she survived, in particular, also why I didn't go with Jankovic or Cirstea, seems even truer now. It'll be very interesting to see who people can ride into the next rounds cause I think those that survived lost the more solid picks and this will get extremely interesting in another 2 days especially.
