View Full Version : Mens Day 5 (Fri) Wimbledon Suicide Pool Pick



Moose
06-23-2010, 10:16 PM
Welcome to Day 5 of a most historic and memorable 6th Annual Wimbledon Men’s Suicide Pool. Every time we think we've seen everything, somethig else comes along. This time, the longest match (and the longest carryover of picks) in Suicide Pool history.

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 made and not duplicate them.

It is very important you follow our posted schedule of play for the day. Today's matches include the 8 third round matches from TOP half of the Men's Draw.

Post your Day 5 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in London, rain or shine, that is, Friday, June 25th at 12:00 PM London time. For those in the US, London is five (5) hours later than the east coast (so 7:00 a.m), and eight (8) hours later than the West coast (4:00 a.m.). Don’t be late as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. The thread will be locked at the deadline, so don't wait until the final minutes.

You might want to scout your player and make sure there is not a known injury or illness issue.

NOTE: Today's official schedule also includes some 2nd round matches, resulting from scheduling issues YOU CANNOT USE EITHER OF THESE MATCHES FOR YOUR DAY 5 PICK. YOU MAY ONLY CHOOSE FROM THE 8 3RD ROUND MATCHES FOR DAY 5. We believe this to be the most fair way to deal with the scheduling changes, and the fact that a number of people have the Youzhny match as their day 4 pick, and therefore it is not an available pick to them today. This also allows us to keep on our original schedule, and also ensures that everyone makes the same number of picks from each half of the draw, as is the tradition in our Wimbledon SP.

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.

Best of luck and thanks for joining us!

Friday’s schedule of play consists of the 8 third round matches from the TOP half of the men’s draw:

Roger Federer SUI (1) v Arnaud Clement FRA
Feliciano Lopez ESP (22) v Jurgen Melzer AUT (16)
Tomas Berdych CZE (12) v Denis Istomin UZB
Victor Hanescu ROU (31) v Daniel Brands GER

Novak Djokovic SRB (3) v Albert Montanes ESP (28)
Gael Monfils FRA (21) v Lleyton Hewitt AUS (15)
Florian Mayer GER v Yen-Hsun Lu TPE
Philipp Kohlschreiber GER (29) v Andy Roddick USA (5)

Fred Perry here. What the bally heck is going on? First of all I have to wait about through three, count them three, 5-set matches, and then the fourth one isn't even played! "Scheduling issues" my Aunt Fanny, it's damned incompetence and don't try blaming it on the weather or the queen! I don't bloody well care if there's a never-ending World War 3 over on Court 18, I expect my results on my dinner plate when I want them and no later. Wasn't like this in my day, I'll tell you that for free. Since that Youzhny blighter can't even manage to play on the proper day, I'm damn well going back to the Jerries. If the little Russki eventually deigns to get up off his damn backside and win, I'll be taking
