Welcome to Day 6 of the Australian Open Men’s Suicide Pool. Today, your choice will be from the other half of 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.

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

Post your Day 6 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 6, that’s Saturday, 11:00 AM in AUSTRALIA. For those in the US, that is Friday 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!

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

Roger Federer SUI (1) v Albert Montanes ESP (31)
Lleyton Hewitt AUS (22) v Marcos Baghdatis CYP
Fernando Verdasco ESP (9) v [Q] Stefan Koubek AUT
Juan Monaco ARG (30) v Nikolay Davydenko RUS (6)

Novak Djokovic SRB (3) v Denis Istomin UZB
Mikhail Youzhny RUS (20) v Lukasz Kubot
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga FRA (10) v Tommy Haas GER (18)
Nicolas Almagro ESP (26) v Alejandro Falla COL

(I wanna take Almagro so badly. I've picked him so many times before, including here and at Wimby... And he's ALWAYS come through for me. But I just can't bring myself to do it. So I'm gonna bite the bullet.)

Well, my pattern of making my picks in the morning at work has really worked out for me on the Men's Side. But will my luck run out when I have to pick from home tomorrow? I'll try not to think about that right now. Instead, I will just say that my Day 6 pick on the Men's Side is...
