After midnight Wednesday, the US Open will be halfway finished with the second round.

My original picks have done good so far. The more picks I have make it to the quarterfinals, then my odds of them playing each other increase.

I told you there were many talented women in the draw. Simone Halep was brilliant at Wimbledon this year, but she is out now for the U.S. Open title, so I assume you will pick Serena to win. If Serena wins her next match and Madison Keys loses, I will root for Serena.
