    Mini Bandwagons:

    Samantha Stosur (37) - Riding a 3 match grass losing streak extending through the first round of Wimbledon last year. Still, an easier opponent this time... maybe.
    I think we need to rethink our sizes here, Samantha had a huge bandwagon in my book. I think mini bandwagons are like Ana's --> under 10

    Anyway the first big bandwagon of the day arrived, 4-4

    The Kaia bandwagon is screeching and wobbling, the wheels are coming off.

    Kiu called it. Kanepi goes down too.
    The women's bandwagons took the wrong route along the cliff road. And they keep falling.

    Is this a typical women's SP or what!!??!! We've lost over 100 and today is not over. Unbelievable.

    I hate to confess to all of you CSN pickers that her loss was my fault. You see, I picked her opponent as one of my YCWJ picks. This meant that of course CSN would lose. It's just that simple.

    Why do I always break my own rules and then feel surprised when, say, a Top Tenner from SPAIN loses on GRASS. Shame on me, Carla, shame on me!

    Almost picked CSN, but that would go against the rule of picking against promising looking youngsters. You don't want to be on the wrong side of a breakout tournament. :/

    Oddly enough, CSN has become more inconsistent since joining the top 10, she's usually a surprisingly reliable pick to beat players ranked below her and lose to players ranked above her.

    116 Down of our 292 starters. With 2 more Garcia pickers still at risk in the last match.

    Congratulations to those 176 who survived the bloodbath. Now do it again tomorrow.

    So James7 .. re this

    "Venus Williams (16) - Too early? Or even too late? One can never tell. Have to see what version of Venus shows up today."

    How would you describe today's version? Vintage, perhaps?

    Six people did take Bouchard, after all. Best of luck. Hope they make it, because right now Bouchard is an unknown quantity.
