and then we came to the semis!

Good day, everyone, and welcome to Day 11, and the mens semifinals of the 6th annual TAT Wimbledon Suicide Pool. 58 of you remain going into the semis...but with Roger having lost to Tomas Berdych in the quarters, it will be difficult for many to beat the draw at this point

Be certain to check the Update Picks and Results thread prior to making your choice for the semis. Most of you have used at least two of the remaining 4 players in the draw, and we'd hate to see you get eliminated for making a duplicate pick.

Today's choices are from the 2 semifinal matches of the Men's Draw.

Post your Day 11 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, July 2nd at 1:00 PM London time. For those in the US, London is five (5) hours later than the east coast (8:00 AM), and eight (8) hours later than the West coast (5:00 AM). Donít 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. If it's locked, you are out.

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.

Good luck!

The Day 11 matches are:

Tomas Berdych CZE (12) v Novak Djokovic SRB (3)
Andy Murray GBR (4) v Rafael Nadal ESP (2)

Now that womens' play has concluded, we will go ahead and open the Day 11 thread for the men. Good luck, everybody. And remember to check the P&R thread - everyone has used at least two, and many of you have used three of the remaining players.

Hmmm... if I read things all correctly I should pick Murray to have any hope of tying for first. Both matches must have the "underdogs" win. Otherwise I'm passed regardless.

So Murray. :rolleyes:

Thanks for the fun contest!

Well, I really have no idea. And it doesn't much matter anyway, because even if I'm correct, I have no pick for the finals, so no chance to medal here. My intention had always been to take Nadal here, but I also saved Murray (and Soderling and Tsonga) because I considered any of them good possibilities to get to the semis (and further). That was also my downfall, because I used both Berdych and Djokovic this week, expecting Federer to make it to (and win) the final. Had I been able to make a correct quarter-final choice from the bottom half of the draw, I'd still have a choice on each half now. I guess that's something I should try to remember should I ever get this far in a SP again, but I just didn't know how to make a choice from either of those matches.

Anyway, on to the current pick. For no other reason than he's lost only one set thus far, while Nadal has lost five, I'm going with

Day 11: Andy Murray
