    Thank you all for your inputs on improving the game. Nice to see some suggestions being thrown around. While I do appreciate it, I think I will not follow through with consolation rounds. As Ico said earlier, this is called "Sudden Death League" for a reason: One bad pick and you're out of the tournament.

    If any of you have any further improvements on the game, please let Ico or myself know! We appreciate any suggestions you may have.

    I don't blame you... Goerges/Zheng is a complete toss up.

    Well, now you have company. Bartoli fights back from 0-5 in the third set but then gets broken after getting it back to 4-5. Yeesh.

    JadeC and jamesblakefan#1 did win the WTA SDL event at the Olympics last year, but no one has ever won a GS event yet.

    It doesn't seem bad this time for a lot of you. Most of you still have the Top 4 as picks remaining. I do think that the WTA Top 4 will all advance to the semis.

    But that is just me
