Hello and welcome to day 3 of the US Open Menís Suicide Pool. It's been a rough few days. Congratulations for making it to day 3.

You will be making one pick EACH DAY of the Menís event (NOT one each round), and once you use a player, you can never use them again. There is a ďpicks and results threadĒ posted so you can check the choices you have already made.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU FOLLOW THE POSTED SCHEDULE OF PLAY BELOW. THIS IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT FOR THE US OPEN MENíS EVENT, BECAUSE THE MENíS FIRST ROUND MATCHES ARE SPREAD OVER 3 DAYS. SO, WE ONLY HAVE SOME FIRST ROUND MATCHES LEFT WEDNESDAY. BE CAREFUL.

Post your Day 3 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by the start of play in New York, rain or shine, that is Wednesday, August 27, 2008 at 11:00 AM New York time (east coast), 8:00 AM on the west coast. For those in Europe, London is five (5) hours later than the east coast. Donít be late as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. This thread will be locked at 11:00 AM EDT, so please don't wait until the last minute or you may find it locked when you hit "post".

If you change your mind after you make your pick, and before the deadline, please make a second post advising us of your change - PLEASE DO NOT make your change in your original post, as we often go through the posts before closing to begin the task of updating the picks and results, and we might miss a change if you edit your original pick.

Best of luck, and thank you for joining us!

Wednesdayís schedule consists of THE REMAINDER OF FIRST ROUND MATCHES FROM THE BOTTOM half of the menís draw :

Andy Roddick USA (8) v Fabrice Santoro FRA
Ernests Gulbis LAT v Thomas Johansson SWE

We are open for business!

Still first round matches for the men - 16, to be exact. Looks like no second round matches, even at night, for the men.

Good luck!

Wow, slim pickings in this set for the only-top-14-seed strategy. Not sure I trust Roddick, Davydenko, or Djokovic to go too far here ... but I'm seeing this guy go out in Round 2, so we'll try:

Day 1: Andy Murray GBR (6)
Day 2: Ivo Karlovic CRO (14)
Day 3: Andy Roddick USA (8)

Go Andy!

Still hanging in there. I will pick one of the ugliest men on tour, Radek Stepanek. I just can't picture Potito beating him on hard court. But I've been wrong before (see Schuettler over Tipsarevic at Wimbledon).

Picks:
Troicki
Fish
Stepanek

He owes me for being a fan all these years. Even if I have thrown him under the TAT bus, toss him into the TAT Lake of Fire, and interred him in the TAT Graveyard of Ex-Favorites. Twice.
