    Anyone who beats the draw in this tournament deserves their own Venus Rosewater dish

    Biggest blowout since the mens draw in 1996

    Well Im relying on Radwanska to beat Li in the quarters. The last time I did this was at the Australian Open. It didnt happen.

    Re: UPDATED Ladies' Picks and Results Thread

    I just did this for fun and don't see that anyone has posted it. I looked to see who could still beat the draw:
    17 started Tuesday:
    3 picked players who lost.
    5 of the others have only 1 pick left.
    2 of the other have 2 picks, but those 2 play each other in the semis.
    That leaves 7 who can potentially beat the draw:
    5 have Radwanska and Flipkens left.....Luvs10s, mmm8, Oploskoffie, RickyM63, SoulCandy93.
    1 has Radwanska and Bartoli.......Philly10.
    1 has Flipkens and Lisicki......Mr_Socko

    It will be fun to see how all of you do. Good luck......Glenn

    I am absolutely floored that so many have scenarios in which they can still beat the draw. And at this point, given the cast of characters, all scenarios are within the realm of genuine possibility.

    Re: UPDATED Ladies' Picks and Results Thread

    That's true, but there are also several very realistic scenarios under which no one will beat a draw. Lisicki vs Bartoli final, for example.

    I also wonder if all who have Flipkens and Radwanska or Flipkens and Lisicki will use Kirsten in SF. Philly10 is in the best situation - if he chooses Bartoli and she wins the medal is his (alone if the opponent is Radwanska, shared if Lisicki.

    I'd love to say this was all part of my master plan. But no one would believe that.

    About half way through the day I realized I was the only one with Bartoli left and started hoping for the Flipkens upset.

    And now you are left hoping that there are no more Flipkens upsets.

    Re: UPDATED Ladies' Picks and Results Thread

    I just had a glance at some British bookmakers. Lisicki and and Bartoli are favourites to win today, and actually Flipkens is given a slighgtly better chance to beat Bartoli than Radwanska to beat Lisicki (both around 40% chance).
    Not that I would encourage anyone to gamble, especially this Wimbledon!

    Re: UPDATED Ladies' Picks and Results Thread

    Now that all of the remaining players have made their semi-final picks, these are the situations:

    If Flipkens wins her match, we have the largest number of chances of someone beating the draw. Mr_socko then beats the draw if Lisicki wins the final. Five would beat the draw if Radwanska wins the final (rickyM63, oploskoffie, mmmm8, Soulcandy93, and luvs10s).

    If Bartoli wins her match, Philly10 beats the draw if Radwanska wins the final.

    No one can beat the draw if either Bartoli or Flipkens wins the tournament.

    No one can beat the draw if Bartoli and Lisicki both win their semi-finals.

    I believe the SP will be won by one of those mentioned above. No matter who wins the Bartoli/Flipkens match, there will be at least one player in the position to make a pick for the finals. For instance, if Bartoli wins her semi, we have a winner (Philly10).
    SP players not mentioned above have made their last pick.

    2. Sabine "German #1?" Lisicki, with 4.

    3. Agnieszka "Blondie" Radwanska, with1.

    (Tie) 3. Marion "here I am again" Bartoli, with 1.
