Welcome to Day 5 of the Australian Open Men’s Suicide Pool – 2010 edition! Today, we start the third round. Congratulations on making it this far!

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. This becomes more important as your previous picks mount. Please check it.

It is very important you follow the schedule of play for the day posted below. Only half of the draw plays Friday.

Post your Day 5 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 5, that’s Friday, 11:00 AM in AUSTRALIA. For those in the US, that is Thursday 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.

Best of luck!

Friday’s Order of Play consists of eight 3rd round matches from the BOTTOM half of the men’s draw:

Andy Roddick USA (7) v Feliciano Lopez ESP
Evgeny Korolev KAZ v Fernando Gonzalez CHI (11)
Marin Cilic CRO (14) v Stanislas Wawrinka SUI (19)
Florian Mayer GER v Juan Martin Del Potro ARG (4)

Andy Murray GBR (5) v Florent Serra FRA
John Isner USA (33) v Gael Monfils FRA (12)
Ivo Karlovic CRO v Ivan Ljubicic CRO (24)
Philipp Kohlschreiber GER (27) v Rafael Nadal ESP (2)

Day 4: Hewitt.

Day 5: Cilic.

EDIT: Will probably change this a kazillion times, and/or majorly regret not sticking with my first choice. BUT- why not join the mini-bandwagon (especially for those who cannot make the Gonzo choice)? AND- since this match is up before Cilic/Wawrinka (thus great decisions are made....)

Day 5: Monfils.

I simultaneously love and fear getting further in these pools. The thrill of advancing is always balanced by the difficulty of making picks from such a small set of choices. Nonetheless, my Day 5 pick on the Men's Side is...

GONZALEZ!
