    IW/Miami Practice Pools: Losers' Lounge & Discussion

    Talk about picks, rue your days, etc

    And what's a lounge without jukebox videos?

    Using DaveG's day 1 totals...

    Azarenka 14
    Konta 4
    Brady 3
    Vondrousova 3
    Andreescu 1
    Golubic 1
    Rybarikova 1
    Yastremska 1


    25/28 ... that's incredible for IW!
    A Canadian Slam winner? Inconceivable!

    Adventurous pick. I was tempted, but Strycova is a veteran, and I wondered if Golubic was tired after winning the IW challenger.

    Well, at least I survived day 1 on the men's side...I was the idiot who picked Rybarikova on the women's side.

    I got double-cheeked Thursday, day one of men (I picked Chardy, whom I saw as a pretty safe pick, ha ha!) and Maria Sakkari. This was pathetic even by my low standards.

    Good luck to the rest of you. On to Miami!!! (where I will doubtless have equal success).

    Wow, it didn't take me long to land here (fast quick and in a hurry)...ugh. Reilly Opekla on the men's side, and Taylor Townsend ko'd me on the women's side. Good Luck to the rest of the survivors, and it's on to Miami. Hopefully I will do better there, cause it was a disaster in Cali. Now that I'm here....Caramel Apple Martini's and keep them coming....

    Ah, that familiar feeling. Out in the second day, thanks to a pair of lousy tie-breaks from Berdych. Just like I remembered it.
    Tomorrow, one truly stupid pick on the women's side and back to what I always do so well
    Face it. It's the apocalypse.

    On to Miami. How nice to be free of the burden of having to post a pick each day

    For what it's worth, I seriously considered picking against Feliciano Lopez... It's not like he's been winning matches. But I got lucky and picked against Donald Young instead.

    Oops, forgot a pick today.

    I went out to the dreaded No Pick as well. You'd think by now I'd have learned to put "No pick" on my "Do Not Pick" list!

    Just to mock us some more...our women's IW winner...was a day 1 pick

    AAAH! The delicious feeling of coming back to check scores and see that Berdych took me out, together with 7 more poor souls.
    Rejoice, my fellow suicides. It means we will lose in the first day of the RG pool but NOT because of a withdrawal. It will be progress when we pick a frenchie and he loses 9-7 in the fifth.
    Face it. It's the apocalypse.
