Roland Garros Day 10: Suicide Pool

Can’t find a pic of today’s HERO, Samantha Jane Stosur, anywhere. So, this guy will have to do

This Spanish sweetheart came through a tough match with his fellow leftie, rising star Thomaz Belucci, in straight sets. Nole took 4 to beat Ginepri, exhausted HSM fave Nando lost to Assmagro,  and Jurgen Melzer beat BAMF Teimuraz Gabashvili.

As mentioned, Slammin’ Sammy Stosur beat Haley Joel Henin in three sets. EPIC FUCKING WIN. My girl JJ beat Dani in straights, ReRe beat Israel’s Shahar Pe’er, and Yaroslava Shvedova beat cutie Jarmila Groth.

^Tomorrow’s OOP. Post your SP picks below.

Good luck guys!

Roland Garros Day 9: Suicide Pool

Thanks for saving an otherwise crappy day, Tomas!

HSM fave and ~uber BAMF~ Tomas Berdych knocked out Britain’s Andy Murray to reach his first QF at the French Open. Berdy played some great tennis, and was aggressive throughout.

Masha totally choked in the continuation of her match with the kid from the Sixth Sense, which sucked. Other shitty happenings included Jo retiring after just one set against Misha with a back problem, Stan choking against Fed, and my bella Flavia losing to Blahroline.

Flavia and her bff Gisela did however make it through in the doubles. Andiamo!!! And Marc! Lopez and his doubles partner made it through to the Quarters of the Men’s Doubles. Awesome.

If you’re still in the SP, make your picks below.

Good luck!

Roland Garros Suicide Pool: Day 8

I haz a sad. RAndy, Ferru and Juanqui all lost today, which is pretty fail.

HSM fave Masha’s match against RG’s fave daughter, Haley Joel Henin, was suspended while tied at a set all due to bad light. The fact that Masha even managed a set against Henin on clay is awesome. Davai! She’ll probably lose when play resumes, but I love her regardless.

Elsewhere; Rafa, Nole, injured Nando, JJ and ReRe all got wins.

Ok guys, those of you who are still in the SP can post your picks below.

Good luck!

(Just wanted to say ANDIAMO FLAVIA! Hope she kicks Blahroline’s butt tomorrow. Unlikely, but IDGAF, she’s a fierce bitch! Forza bella!)

Roland Garros Suicide Pool: Day 7

Today was, as Jills said on Twitter, BAMFtastic Friday at the French Open.

This beautiful BAMF, MaKiri, caused the biggest upset on the ladies’ side, defeating defending champ Sveta in a late match. The biggest on the men’s side came whan Doglopolov defeated Gonzo. In straights. *epic WTF face*

BAMFs who got shit done today included Nole, Nando, Rafa, Jo, Flavia and Masha.

Make your picks for day 7 below. The OOP is made of win.

Good luck, guys!

Roland Garros Suicide Pool Day 6

Basically, fuck you, bad weather.

Ok, so rain fucked everyone over today. Rafa, ReRe and others didn’t get to play one minute of their matches today, so tomorrow’s schedule is a nightmare. Ana Ivanovic lost, as did La Monf. JJ, MAndy and RAndy got good wins.

Seeing as today was rained out for a long time,  if some of your picks couldn’t play at all, you can make a new pick for today.

If you made a pick who’s match is uncompleted, yet started, then you can post a provisional pick below and should your day 5 pick win, then your provisional pick  will be your pick for tomorrow.

Should your day 5 pick lose after completing said match, then your provisional pick won’t mean shit. Soz.

Unless you picked them yesterday, you CANNOT pick a player who’s match is already in progress.

Hope that’s clear!

Good Luck, guys!

RG: Suicide Pool Day 5

You guys know what to do. For those who are still waiting for some matches to be completed like me (WTF, Gael?) Make a pick just in case.

Suicide Pool Day 4

Dick escaped. Rafa played like crap according to him. Hewitt beat Jezza probably making Jills hate RG even more.

You guys know what to do.

Roland Garros Suicide Pool: Day 3

As per usual, if your day 2 pick won, feel free to post your picks and back-ups in the comments below.

Good luck, guys!

Roland Garros Suicide Pool: Day 2

Hey guys…sucks that MJMS is out (for tennis-pool). Sucks that Ernie and Vika are out (bc I love them).

But there were still some awesome wins today. Jo came through in a tight 5-setter and Kiri, Robin, Marin and Misha all won in straights. So there’s something to be happy about.

Post your picks for Day 2 in the comments (if you didn’t lose lol). I’ll make a page for the results up top later so I can edit it throughout the tournament. But not right now, I’m too lazy.

Have fun picking! 🙂

Birthday Boys

Today, May 22, is a fucking awesome day. Two of my favorite people were born today, Nole and Morrissey. As many of my twitter peeps know, I am a diehard Morrissey fan- he’s my fave singer of all time. He’s unique, he’s legendary, and he’s one of the most influential musicians of the last 30 years. There aren’t words for how much I love him.

The thing is- although I knew their b-days if you’d asked me, it didn’t even cross my mind that these two SHARED a b-day until today. But it makes a lot of sense. They’re both extremely intelligent, they’re both fiery and emotional, and they both (contrary to what Bozo might think) have GREAT hair. So here’s to two inimitable, exceptional and extraordinary BAMFs. Never change, guys. No matter what the haters say.

And speaking of haters, it seems like every Tom, Dick, and Bozo are giving Nole next to no chance to make the semis, let alone win the tournament. Screw you people. Yeah, it’s true Nole hasn’t had the best results this year, but let’s give the guy some credit. He’s a Top 3 player and he’s always a contender in my opinion. So really, the critics can suck it. (It’s no secret I want Nole to win the whole thing).

I want to dedicate this song to Nole and to Aleksa. Love.

Roland Garros Suicide Pool: Day 1

Hey everyone!! /Serena

I know I haven’t posted in 193849 days, give or take a few, but the excitement that is a Twitter/HSM Suicide Pool is enough to draw me in. Anyone who wants to join, feel free. Rules are easy and it’s just plain fun.

The first ever HSM Suicide Pool starts tomorrow, Day 1 of the French Open! Here are the rules:

-Every day once the Order of Play for the next day comes out, we’ll post it here in a daily post. You have a look at the Order of Play and you pick ONE male and ONE female player that you think will win their matches that day. Then you post your picks in the comments. Make sure to make your picks before play starts for the day, or they won’t count!

-You should also make BACK-UP picks for your first-choice players, in case one of your first-choice players withdraws before their match starts.

-You aren’t allowed to pick the same player twice during the tournament. In other words, you probably shouldn’t pick Rafa on the first day, since you won’t be able to use him again for the final! It’s best to pick lower-ranked players in the first few rounds, and strategy is important. You have to think ahead in the draw and save the best players for later.

-I’ll keep track of who you’ve picked so far over the fortnight so you don’t make the mistake of picking the same person twice.

-Once your player loses, you are OUT 😦 But we’ll be playing another SP for Wimbledon and that’s right around the corner! Practice makes perfect! 🙂

-Although we’re playing men’s AND women’s Suicide Pools simultaneously, they are in fact separate. This means that if your male player loses, you can continue to pick for females and vice versa.

-If you can’t post your picks here at the blog (can’t access the site from your phone, bad connection, etc) you can contact me (@RagingBitch) or Emma (@emmaphickey) on Twitter and we’ll post your picks for you.

-If you have any questions, ask on twitter or in the comments!

OK…I hope everyone is as excited as I am!

Click here for the OOP for Sunday, May 23 (Day 1)

And post your picks (and back-up picks) in the comments! Good luck guys 🙂
