How to Enter
Pick 2 sets of 8 women each (16 different women). Predict how far they will go by choosing the quarters, semis, finals, and winner.
One set MUST be women who are seeded less than #8 or unseeded.
you don´t need to pick the top8 seeds,
but if you pick one or more of them, then they have to be part of SET 1


Deadline
Sunday at midnight GMT. You may change or edit picks until then. If your pick withdraws on Monday, too bad, so take that into consideration when making picks!Good luck

Points
5 per losing quarterfinal
10 per losing semifinal

I'm a little confused about this; it seems like most people are picking the exact top 8 seeds for set 1 and then picking people outside the top 8 in the next set. I don't see any reason not to, really. I am confused as to why the picks are the way they are...if I pick the same unseeded person in both sets, do I get double points? What's to motivate someone to not pick the top 8 seeds in set 1?? Just if they think that seed is weak? Anyway, here are mine...

SET 1

S Williams vs Capriati

SEMIS
S Willams vs Henin
V Williams vs Clijsters

FINAL
