    FOSP 2018: UPDATED Women's Picks & Results Thread

    Welcome to the inner circle! While perhaps not as elite as usual due to the larger than usual number of players going into the second week, there are still plenty of people gawking at you from behind the velvet rope like you are Fergie making a Vegas night club appearance. Special or not, one rule still holds true here: when you're red, you're dead.
    This is not the bouquet you toss

    [Editor's note: while this recap does not apply to those whose names are listed above in lights, the hoi polloi need something to look at while your limos are looking for a good place to pull up on the red carpet so you don't have to walk very far in those shoes.]

    On Day 7, TMQ: FO2018 finally got our bloodbath! Actually, this was not quite a bath--more of a blood shower, like in that nightclub in the opening scene of Blade. But we are down some numbers. Speaking of the undead, these two fresh corpses didn't even wait for rigor mortis to set in before bouncing back up to deliver to you, the loser, a message from beyond the grave


    Where It Went Wrong For You, the Loser


    Countess Petra Kvitová (3! 3 victims! Muahahahaha! I VANT TO SUCK...IN TIEBREAKERS! A bunch of you have already used Kontaveit, and she's looking like a contender to come out of this half, so maybe start to worry? Now it's time to turn into a bat and fly away to Wimbledon.


    Countess Magdalena Rybarikova (25! 25 victims! MUAHAHAHAHA!) For putting the most heads on spikes in one go so far this tournament, I have earned the title of Magda the Impaler.


    Congrats to the 60-some of you who made it to the second week!

    Day 8 is black tie on the opening night of the updated thread, and 2 of you decided you had nothing to wear, leaving us with 58. The overwhelming majority picked Strycova, and I'm just not sure she can handle that pressure, at least not without getting super crabby.

    Barbora Strycova 38
    Sloane Stephens 6
    Madison Keys 5
    Anett Kontaveit 3
    Yulia Putintseva 2
    Daria Kasatkina 2
    Mihaela Buzarnescu 2

    Yay...I woke up and found I made updated thread.

    Boo...I woke up and I'm already out! (Buzarenescu.) I knew Strycova the safer pick, but was saving her for next round. Good luck people!
    A Canadian Slam winner? Inconceivable!

    Oh my!
    I need Kontaveit to win...x

    Everything I needed to happen to stay alive in having a chance to beat the draw happened--Stephens and Keys winning.

    Well, except for the part about my actual pick going down meekly to Putintseva.

    That was Suliso-esque to the point of poetry.

    It always feel better when your second choice loses too...then you know you were screwed no matter what. If it makes you feel better I'm also screwing myself in predictions with the jinx?

    Reality has come crashing home to most of you--a Kasatkina win will put us at 15 remaining, 13 if she loses

    I now know why I couldn't get far in any suiside pool.
    It must be Cookie Monster and cream cheese...every time I got sandwiched between the two, I lost early.
    This time, I ate them!

    Re: FOSP 2018: UPDATED Women's Picks & Results Thread

    I had used Styrcova in the first round, and even then, did so with some trepidation. I'm glad I wasn't in a situation where I needed to pick her in this round.

    Re: FOSP 2018: UPDATED Women's Picks & Results Thread

    OK, now that was a proper bloodbath! I can't imagine anything that I would want to watch less than a Putintseva/Strycova match, but I bet it was moody! Barbora didn't want to stick around long, so she'll be brief, but still wanted to let you know


    Where It Went Wrong For You, the Loser


    Barbora Strycova (38 victims) Move over, Magda the Impaler, and make room for Barb the Butcher, and I'll cave your head in for looking at me funny! F*** off!


    Mihaela Buzarnescu and Anett Kontaveit (2 victims each) We're appearing together like those dead twins in The Shining because we have the same message for our losers--don't you wish you'd picked me two days ago when I looked like I knew how to play tennis?

    13-15 remain!

    Re: FOSP 2018: UPDATED Women's Picks & Results Thread

    15 left to start Day 9, with 2 still waiting on Kasatkina to finish off the AO champ.

    Garbine Muguruza 9
    Serena Williams 3
    Simona Halep 3
