Welcome to day 6 of TAT's Fourth Annual US Open Men’s Suicide Pool.

You will be making one pick EACH DAY of the Men’s event (NOT one each round), and once you use a player, you can never use them again. There is a “picks and results thread” posted so you can check the choices you have already made.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU FOLLOW THE POSTED SCHEDULE OF PLAY BELOW. AS ALWAYS, BE CAREFUL.

Post your Day 6 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by the start of play in New York, rain or shine, that is Saturday, August 30, 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. Don’t 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!

Saturday’s schedule consists of 8 THIRD ROUND MATCHES FROM THE TOP half of the men’s draw:

Rafael Nadal ESP (1) v Viktor Troicki SRB
Sam Querrey USA v Ivo Karlovic CRO (14)
James Blake USA (9) v Mardy Fish USA
Gael Monfils FRA (32) v David Nalbandian ARG (7)

David Ferrer ESP (4) v Kei Nishikori JPN
Juan Martin Del Potro ARG (17) v Gilles Simon FRA (16)
Stanislas Wawrinka SUI (10) v LL Flavio Cipolla ITA
Jurgen Melzer AUT v Andy Murray GBR (6)

I 'm sure they will wait for Verdasco to finish his match ! :cheesy:

Should Verdasco get through, Suliso has chosen Wawrinka.

I never get this far in the men's, so I think I'll stick with my top-14 strategy. Getting a little trickier to pick someone who won't win too deep in the draw ... only Nadal, Blake, Ferrer, and Wawrinka left here.

Day 1: Andy Murray GBR (6)
Day 2: Ivo Karlovic CRO (14)
Day 3: Andy Roddick USA (8)
Day 4: David Nalbandian ARG (7)
Day 5: Fernando Verdasco ESP (13)
Day 6: Stanislas Wawrinka SUI (10)

Go Stan!

Day 6: Nothing original here - Stanislas Wawrinka will also be my pick. (Assuming Stepanek wins the completion of his match).

Thanks.

Continuing to spread the international love, having chosen a player from a different country each day so far, I'll display my desire to survive even if it means joining the inevitable badwagon fondness for diversity yet again by picking...

Stanislas Wawrinka.

That was probably his former life, when he went by the name of Mikhail Youzhny :cheesy:

Day 1: Viktor Troicki
Day 2: Mardy Fish
Day 3: Agustin Calleri
Day 4: Jurgen Melzer
Day 5: Fernando Verdasco
Day 6: Stanislas Wawrinka

I tried to talk myself into making another pick to stay off the bandwagon, but I couldn't come up with a compelling enough reason to pick any of the other matches. Here's hoping the Wisdom of Crowds holds true on Day 6.

Ha! I have the same thing in my Racquet Bracket. You must know my dealer, Jeff. ;) (But really, what were we on??)

If Stan goes down, I think we have our medalists, but nonetheless, it's Wawrinka for me too.
