View Full Version : Men's Day 4 (Thu) Aus Open Suicide Pool Pick

Welcome to Day 4 of the Australian Open Men’s Suicide Pool – 2010 edition! As our numbers continue to dwindle, today, your choice will be from the other half of the second round.

Again, 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 him 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 schedule of play for the day posted below. Only half of the draw plays Thursday.

Post your Day 4 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in Melbourne, rain or shine. For day 4, that’s Thursday, 11:00 AM in AUSTRALIA. For those in the US, that is Wednesday 7:00 PM EST. Please do not be late, as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. This thread will be locked at the deadline, 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.

You might want to scout your player and make sure there is not a known injury or illness issue.

Good luck!

Thursday’s Order of Play consists of 2nd round matches from the TOP half of the men’s draw:

Roger Federer SUI (1) v Victor Hanescu ROU
Stephane Robert FRA v Albert Montanes ESP (31)
Lleyton Hewitt AUS (22) v [Q] Donald Young USA
Marcos Baghdatis CYP v David Ferrer ESP (17)

Fernando Verdasco ESP (9) v [Q] Ivan Sergeyev UKR
[Q] Stefan Koubek AUT v [Q] Ivan Dodig CRO
Juan Monaco ARG (30) v Michael Llodra FRA
[Q] Illya Marchenko UKR v Nikolay Davydenko RUS (6)

Novak Djokovic SRB (3) v Marco Chiudinelli SUI
Michael Berrer GER v Denis Istomin UZB
Mikhail Youzhny RUS (20) v Jan Hajek CZE
Lukasz Kubot POL v Santiago Giraldo COL

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga FRA (10) v Taylor Dent USA
Janko Tipsarevic SRB v Tommy Haas GER (18)
Nicolas Almagro ESP (26) v Benjamin Becker GER
Alejandro Falla COL v Marcel Granollers ESP

Okay. I'm not sure, but this might be about as far as I've made it in an Australian Open SP. So the pressure is off and on simultaneaously. I'll try not to overthink it until the weekend, though, since I'm making my picks at work during the week. So my Day 4 pick on the Men's Side is...

There are a couple of people I simply avoid in Suicide Pools (Youzhny is definitely one).

It's a giant bandwagon for a reason. The pick is too obvious to avoid so Hewitt.

Day 1: Ljubicic
Day 2: Tipsarevic
Day 3: F. Gonzalez
Day 4: Hewitt

I'm switching to Hewitt. I've decided that I won't be picking Baghdatis over him anyway so I might as well go for the better odds, except of course the weight of that wagon full of SP passengers on his shoulders. lol

another 50 kilos won't matter will it?
