    2017 IW/Miami Suicide Pool: Loser's Lounge

    This is where you post about how silly you feel for making such a dumb pick. Or laugh at other people because you are feeling arrogant and are completely unaware that you are about to get double-cheeked yourself.

    I will be disappointed if this does not become the template text that appears in new Loser's Lounges going forward.

    For Day 1 of the women's pool, I think we have 17 folks who picked Monica Puig while 13 folks chose a different loser.

    The Ostapenko pickers are safely through. Damn it.

    Yeah, but I'm drawing the line at Day 3.

    Not. Doing. It.

    (Have you ever heard about the restaurant in Maryland (?) where the servers treat the customers badly? I've always wanted to go. That's my model for the Indian Wells iteration of the Loser's Lounge. I plan to spend the next week+ dropping plates in front of you.)

    The Bondarenko people never learn. I mean, really... How many years has this been a thing?

    We also lost a Nara picker and a Bellis picker. (Sorry, that sounded dirty.)

    Happy that Puig got through, though. That's who I had. And damn it, it's all about me.

    I think this might be the first time I've picked a first round winner at either Indian Wells or Miami. This "practice" suicide pool is so much harder than the real thing because you have to pick from scrub on scrub action for the first two days!
    This is not the bouquet you toss

    Puig was the closest player to a seed IMO therefore, the pick

    That's a dangerous amount of logic you're applying

    Man....Errani made me sweat that one out. I guess I deserve it. I knew what I was in for. I'm a thrill seeker.

    I know I promised to be mean in the Loser's Lounge, but I feel for the Mchale pickers. It was a solid pick. When was the last time Rodina won a tour-level match? I'm pretty sure it has been a while.

    That said, back to being mean, I'm glad you all are out. So there.

    So long. And Alona is also trying to make a comeback.

    But hey, appreciate them not heeding the warning. Makes my never-ending quest to win a SP once in my life a tad more likely. I've only won a Practice SP.
