Welcome to Day 9 and the first day of the quarterfinals! Yes, the draw is still split.

You will continue 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. Do not risk being disqualified by duplicating a pick you made earlier.

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

Post your Day 9 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 9, that’s Tuesday, 11:00 AM in AUSTRALIA. For those in the US, that is Monday 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. (cough...Youzhny...cough :mad: )

Good luck!

Tuesday’s Order of Play consists of only the two quarterfinal matches from the BOTTOM half of the men’s draw:

Andy Roddick USA (7) v Marin Cilic CRO (14)
Andy Murray GBR (5) v Rafael Nadal ESP (2)

They say that a player often has a letdown after a breakout win. I hope that's the case this time.

And I will change my mind a few times, I'm sure.

cilic, hvala

I actually feel pretty good about this pick, which may just be because I like the kid and am happy to cheer for him.

I had a chance to see a bit of the Roddick vs. Gonzo match and think Andy is more wounded then he is letting on.

Andy Roddick

They also loooove to talk about moooomentum, do they not;)

For me it's simple; I figure I'll need Murray or Nadal later on, and like many others I already used up Roddick, so I gotta go with....oh dear...lol

Day 4: Tsonga
Day 3: Wawrinka
Day 2: Almagro

Day 7 prediction: Cilic pulls an upset on Del Potro! = CORRECT!!!!
Day 8 prediction: Almagro pulls the upset on Tsonga = NOT CORRECT (so close, though)
Day 9 prediction: No matter whether it's Roddick or Cilic that wins, the match will be decided on Cilic's racquet
