Welcome to day 9 of TAT's Fourth Annual US Open Men’s Suicide Pool. Congratulations to our survivors!

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. Please check your previous choices carefully!

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

Post your Day 9 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by the start of play in New York, rain or shine, that is Tuesday, September 2, 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!

Tuesday’s schedule consists of 4 FOURTH ROUND MATCHES FROM THE BOTTOM half of the men’s draw:

Andy Roddick USA (8) v Fernando Gonzalez CHI (11)
Tommy Robredo ESP (15) v Novak Djokovic SRB (3)
Nikolay Davydenko RUS (5) v Q Gilles Muller LUX
Igor Andreev RUS (23) v (28) v Roger Federer SUI (2)

OK, only one person has advanced so far. But, I'm sure there will be more. So,

Open!

I don't know, before the tournament when I ran the numbers, I came out with Federer likely to lose to Andreev and Davydenko likely to beat Andreev. That said, I just can't see Federer going out before the semis, so I'm going to say numbers be damned and choose Davydenko, just like everyone else.

Well, I was hoping Wawrinka and Nishikori would win so I would win the pool, but it's still exciting just to be in it. This half of the draw is easier for me.

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)
Day 8: Rafael Nadal ESP (1)
Day 9: Nikolay Davydenko RUS (5)

Go Nikolay!

Out of curiosity, what numbers could those have possibly been?
