Welcome to Day 10. After day 9, our numbers are pretty much split in half. Today, your choice will be from the other half of the quarterfinals.

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. Please check it. Don't risk being disqualified by an accidental double-pick. It has happened each of the last two days!!!

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

Post your Day 10 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 10, that’s Wednesday, 11:00 AM in AUSTRALIA. For those in the US, that is Tuesday 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!

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

Roger Federer SUI (1) v Nikolay Davydenko RUS (6)
Novak Djokovic SRB (3) v Jo-Wilfried Tsonga FRA (10)

Day 10: Djokovic. Of course, because Murray beat Nadal, there's no way I can beat the draw (I can only stagger along wounded until the finals at best). Gah! I've committed suicide and I didn't even mean to (is that possible?)!

Day 9: Cilic
Day 8: Davydenko
Day 7: Murray
Day 6: Verdasco
Day 5: Gonzalez
Day 4: Tsonga
Day 3: Wawrinka
Day 2: Almagro
Day 1: Kohlschreiber

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 = KIND OF CORRECT!!!

Novak Djokovic, please.

P.S. Earlier in the day, I was going to pick Davydenko. Then I toyed with picking Federer. So difficult today! Aaargh!

Ok so after a mind numbing amount of over analysis it seems as though picking Djokovic is my best chance at winning this thing. Will really come down to needing Cilic to beat Murray so Novak Djokovic for day 10
