    2018 IW/Miami suicide pool Loser's Lounge

    I apologize for not having any pictures of bars, but I thought we ought to have this thread up before play begins. We are sure to have some losers today, since as of this moment we have people picking players from the opposite sides of the same match

    Can you make sure the copper mugs are chilled? I'll want a Moscow Mule when Sharapova loses to Osaka.

    Shelby was up a set and a break. So, of course we who picked her are doomed.

    Was she one-legged before the match started?

    This is a perfect example of how I think we're collectively getting worse at SPs. I even noted in my pick that she hadn't won a match this year...and picked her anyway. I too often say doesn't matter how bad Player A is playing if I don't know who player B is.

    Sorry for bragging but... I saw your post and I was surprised that she was being picked. What has she ever done to be picked for a SP for the qualies?
    Then again: Sharaboba lost, Bouchard lost, and we all know that the first rounds of IW and Miami are the toughest because it is a bunch of nobodies or a returning player (Serena) that you won't pick because she will probably win the tournament.
    Conclusion: you are right. We are getting worse at this.

    I actually was going to pick against Bouchard but when thread came out it just had her against Q3...so I went with Shelby instead. Should've went back later and changed.

    So if I said we're getting collectively worse...and I was double-cheeked both on day 1, does that mean I'm (tied for?) our worst SP player now?

    Double-cheeked to a man and women both outside the top 150 in rankings. Ugh.

    I missed the deadline for the women and went out Day 1 with men. Good times...

    Out of both pools in less than three days. PT's point: we are NOT getting collectively worse at this. We are totally sucking at it.
    C'mon, we should be better at it. We are supposed to know about tennis!!!

    As Day 2 dawned i was dreaming of an imagery tiny medal. 3 hours later Tiafoe took me down and out of IW. These practice pools are horrid: if you win you don't really win anything or get a medal, and when you lose you feel extra stupid indeed. But I love torture. On to Miami!
