The JJ Forum Pick Thread (Vol 2)

Pick Thread Rules & Participants
Welcome to the JJ Forum Pick Thread - Up and running for 2009!!!!

Pick Thread Rules
Very simple - For any tourney we run the pick for, take the draw and pick the winner, by how many sets
And then hopefully we get to pick JJ's progress through to a successful final...
Respond with your picks in this thread and we'll update as we go...

Points

5 for correctly guessing how far JJ will progress in a tourney
Submit Round Number, QF, SF, F (i.e. she gets there but loses) or TITLE
Picks open from the date the draw is announced and closed the day before tourney starts

3 for the winning player
+2 for the exact (winning) scoreline (sets only)
0 if your pick loses!!
Picks open from when the OOP comes out and closes based on time zones before the start of play

IF JJ goes out in the earlier rounds/upto Semi Final - we can run the pick for the Semi's and eventual winner ... same rules will apply!

Re: The JJ Forum Pick Thread - Berlin 5/5

Rozzie's Progress Pick for Rome...

I think she's still tweaking the gears a little...
This is another head vs heart pick...

A very optimistic..... SEMI-FINAL


Pick Strategy is ALL: JJ is merely the weapon of choice...

JM: [pause, followed by a guilty look] Ah yeah. That's possible.

Re: The JJ Forum Pick Thread - Berlin 5/5

I don't know how I managed it, but Berlin was a bigger fiasco for me than for JJ. I'm beginning to seriously doubt my fortune telling skills.
I'll be suicidal this time:

JJ to defend the title

Re: The JJ Forum Pick Thread - Berlin 5/5

I can't believe I won that one with my awful semi & finals picks. No clean sweep for me, but I'll take it!

Goodbye WTA and Jelena. It was nice being your fan once.

Re: The JJ Forum Pick Thread - Berlin 5/5

I could see JJ losing in any round of this tourney, or winning it all. Ay gevalt.

Rome Round Pick: JJ to the Quarterfinals

Goodbye WTA and Jelena. It was nice being your fan once.

Thank you, Roz! I outJJed JJ! for me!

@ Bruno:
I have the same feeling - I wouldn't be surprised if she went out in the second round or if she won the title...Well, I would be more surprised if she won the title, but that's because I'm such a negative person.

Re: The JJ Forum Pick Thread - Berlin 5/5

FINAL REMINDER
Rome: JJ's Progress Pick – OPEN UNTIL
13:00 (PDT), 16:00 (EDT), 21:00 (BST), 22:00 (CET) MONDAY 12th MAY


Any Pick posts timed AFTER the Pick closes will NOT be counted – regardless of what time I post the tables.
No exceptions.

Please post your picks as:
JJ ROUND PICK: Rn / QF / SF / FINAL / TITLE
so that they stand out (Pretty Pictures/Colours optional!)
If you want to change your pick before the closing time, please quote your original pick and post a new reply so that I don’t miss the edit.
Thanks

Re: The JJ Forum Pick Thread - Berlin 5/5

I'm going with the majority. Round pick - Semi. Though the prospect of her losing to Maria I'm ok with.

maria sharapova - jelena jankovic

Re: The JJ Forum Pick Thread - Berlin 5/5

I think I'm more worried about Zvonareva in the QF than Venus...

QF or SF, QF or SF... (or even title)

I don't think I've got a prgress pick right since I started

Even the laws of probability say I should, but JJ's always one step ahead of (or behind) me

OK

JJ to reach SF
