View Full Version : Men's Day 9 (Mon) RG Suicide Pool Pick

05-29-2010, 11:40 PM
Bonjour and welcome to Day 9 of the Men’s Roland Garros Suicide Pool – 2010 edition. Today is the second day of the 4th round. A pick is mandatory.

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 an “updated picks and results thread” posted so you can check the choices you have already made. Check it. You don't want to accidently pick a player you have already chosen. It happens.

It is very important you follow the schedule of play for the day posted below. Only a portion of the draw plays each day.

Post your Day 9 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in Paris, rain or shine. For day 9, that’s Monday, May 31, 2010, 11:00 AM in PARIS. For those in the US, that is Monday 5:00 AM 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.

Note: The quarterfinals are also split, and therefore, you will have to survive two days of picks.

Best of luck!

Day 9 consists of only the 4 fourth round matches from the BOTTOM half of the men's draw:

(Q) T Gabashvili (RUS) vs (22) J Melzer (AUT)
R Ginepri (USA) vs (3) N Djokovic (SRB)
(7) F Verdasco (ESP)) vs (19) N Almagro (ESP)
(24) T Bellucci (BRA) vs (2) R Nadal (ESP)

Open for day 9!

Please check your previous picks in the updated picks and results thread so you don't accidently disqualify yourself by making a double-pick.

I hate having to make this pick, but Ferrer necessitated it.

Fernando Verdasco, please.

For now... Melzer. This could change though.

05-30-2010, 04:49 PM
For most of us left, it appears our SP hopes ride on Hot Sauce tomorrow. Who'd have thunk you could use Melzer too early?!

Verdasco for me too, please.
