Welcome to day 7 of TAT's Fourth Annual US Open Men’s Suicide Pool. Congratulations on making it this far!

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 7 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by the start of play in New York, rain or shine, that is Sunday, August 31, 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!

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

Andy Roddick USA (8) v Andreas Seppi ITA (31)
Jarkko Nieminen FIN v Fernando Gonzalez CHI (11)
Tommy Robredo ESP (15) v Jo-Wilfried Tsonga FRA (19)
Marin Cilic CRO (30) v Novak Djokovic SRB (3)

Nikolay Davydenko RUS (5) v Dmitry Tursunov RUS (26)
Nicolas Almagro ESP (18) v Q Gilles Muller LUX
Fernando Verdasco ESP (13) v Igor Andreev RUS (23)
Radek Stepanek CZE (28) v Roger Federer SUI (2)

Open early, as most just advanced.

Check your previous choices to avoid the dreaded double-pick.

Back on the country merry-go-round (and a modest bandwagon so far), I'll make my bid to reach the second week of a SP for the first time this year by selecting...

Fernando Gonzalez.

Huh. Thanks to Stan for coming back from two sets down. I'm in the second half of the 3rd round with top 14 seeds and it looks like I may be able to make it through without having to gamble too badly. (If you call picking Karlovic, Nalbandian, and now Gonzo not gambling.) Still have Federer, Djokovic, and Davydenko 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)
Day 7: Fernando Gonzalez CHI (11)

Go Fernando!

Looks like you're not doing too badly as the top seeds have held up well so far, although I still think picking Murray early instead of Ferrer (who's not been in good form and whose exit tonight was not totally unexpected) could bite you later...
