I'm not concerned Melzer is going to lose.


But, one danger in suicide pool, and we take the risk all the time, is picking against the opponent instead of picking for your choice. Perfect example was yesterday with de Bakker. I think many were counting his opponent, Jaziri, out instead of realizing de Bakker couldn't even win matches in challenger events this summer.

Melzer is nowhere close to that, obviously. But, he had a really bad match last week.

Bandwagons hold a lot of the time. Especially among the men. There have been a few exceptions this year, though. Personally, with the year Bogomolov has had, I'd be shocked if he lost to a wild card who is ranked outside the top 500.

I thinks Bogo is a sure thing, I want him to win, and I may even go for him next round (if I'm alive then) ... but the possibility of improving my stead by ~70 places in one swoop was enough to make me not pick the guy today.

Admittedly true, but I picked him, so he'll probably lose just to be another exception. He's been quite good on the HC swing, so I'm hopeful. It's usually the women's side that gets really messed up on big bandwagons (*cough* Hantuchova), but the paranoia remains ;)

The other thing that scares me is that Steve Johnson isn't some random dude - he's USC's #1, and that's a team that won the NCAA title this year. Also, he's in position to take the first set.

And Soderling withdrew. Not a surprise. But, it takes out 8 people.

Hmmm - well it's a surprise to me, and I guess 7 others not conversant with Soderling's daily medical condition.

Anyway, if this is the official rule for the SP, I do have a problem with it. If someone starts the match and withdraws, absolutely no problem. But if the player withdraws before the match, I think the circumstances should be looked at.

In this case, the SP listed Soderling as an available pick and I picked him in good faith on that basis. But on the official schedule of play, he doesn't show up at all, not even to record the walkover

http://www.usopen.org/en_US/scores/schedule/index.html?promo=subnav

Seems to me the 8 Soderling pickers should get a pass to day 4.

With respect, I'm appealing the decision to red-type the 8 Soderling pickers and ask that the Contest team at TAT at least review the scenario and make a final judgment.

Thanks for considering this.

That's a revised schedule of play after he withdrew, which was right before/as play started. There is nothing that can be done that is fair to all players.

And I don't think he is in any way impressed by Bogomolov. And we all know how much that counts on a tennis court.

Not to stick my nose in where it don't belong, but you picked a guy who withdrew for an illness that is most likely related to a virus that has been bothering him for some time. I didn't pick him, partially because I didn't think he was healthy. So, you think you should get a pass on a day me and 69 others are about to sink on Bogo? I think not.

It's unfortunate when it happens. But, it has happened many times before in our 7 years. The most infamous being Monfils at Wimbledon and Gasquet at the US Open. Then, I forget who it was, but we had someone withdraw about 30 minutes before the deadline at the Australian. We put up a note and about 6 of the 20 or so who had picked him changed their pick before the deadline. More power to them for checking.

One of the things I really think we've done well over the years we have run the game is apply our small number of rules consistently in every pool.

People have been eliminated for this very reason (last minute withdraw) since the first year our game began. Yes, it is an awful way to go out, but it has been treated the same way for 7 years.

PeterSkan
08-31-2011, 12:03 PM
That's a revised schedule of play after he withdrew, which was right before/as play started. There is nothing that can be done that is fair to all players.

Yeah - I suppose. If he had withdrawn before I made my pick, which was moments before the deadline, I would have a problem with this if the SP order of play still included him as a valid pick.

Probably Soderling knew all along he wouldn't/couldn't play. I hope he gets zero dollars out of this, but I suspect he didn't withdraw until the last minute to maximize his take-home. Which of course deprives someone else of a LL shot.

Anyway thanks for thinking about this. It's a crumbling cookie.

Crumbs!

We strive to notify when we learn of withdrawals. But, most of the time, they happen at the start of play. Heck, the US Open site didn't even update the draw until the match was completed and they had to advance Da Silva.

It was Youzhny-AO 2010.... Soderling hasn't played a match in 2 months, it was a risky pick and this is not a surprise withdraw .

Fed-Fish has lots of people divided from the looks of it. That will bring us down at some point (assuming both win tomorrow...no sure thing. I guess one losing would also bring us down.)

Janko beating Ferrero is a very uncertain thing indeed, but I picked him anyway because I could not live with myself by picking Federer - though I fully expect Tsonga to beat Federer in the QF. I think a lot of people are picking Tipsarevic out of guilt, too.

Funny so many chose Fish for day 8. Is he really looking so good against Jo-Wilfried?

ponchi101
09-04-2011, 06:53 PM
the H2H between Ferrero and Tipsy is pretty meaningless, also. 2-0 JC, but last match in 2007.
I say 50% for either. Just a coin toss. But if you want to beat the draw, I think this is the way to go. Fish - Tsonga is also too iffy.

MeganFernandez
09-04-2011, 07:09 PM
Problem with picking Fed now is if Mardy pulls off a win against Tsonga. Fed-Fish in best-of-5 isn't nearly as much of a toss-up as Fed-Tsonga, in my opinion. Tipsy-Ferrero is a total white-knuckler, though. At least it's an early match. Won't have to suffer all day.

Yes, there is that too. Of course there is a chance Fish pulls out what (at least to me) would be a surprise. If that happens, I will feel very comfortable picking Federer next. But if Tsonga wins, I will go with him in the QF.

That is, if Ferrero does not win and kick me out. But Janko`s chances just keep looking better and better. Has anyone noticed that Ferrero has not won a match on hardcourts this year before the US Open? Ok, he beat Monfils. But Gael committed a monstrous total of 81 unforced errors. That's 43% of Ferrero's points in that match.

I had a tough time with that choice nevertheless. Ferrero has the experience factor going for him and Janko has not been to a major quarters (at least, I don't think he has). I had the same problem the other day with Monaco/Haas. But, that was one round earlier and Haas has played far fewer matches in his comeback. Ferrero can definitely be a spoiler.

Huh. I figured a lot of people were stressing who to pick out of Ferrero/Tipsy and Fish and Tsonga. However, I would have never thought more people would have picked Fish over Tsonga today. Interesting.

I don't know if Janko really qualifies as young or inexperienced. He's like 27, isn't he?

It's probably unfair to some degree, but for some reason I always associate Janko with retirements. Or, when things aren't going his way, he mentally checks out of the match. I don't think either of those happen nearly as often as they used to, but for me, it has stuck for some reason.

I went with Fish over Tsonga deciding that the crowd would tip the balance. I think JCF will beat Tipsy, but I'd already used JCF.

Definitely the toughest pick of the SP so far. We'll see. Go Mardy.

I most definitely would have taken Fish today, but for being at Jo-Wili's match against Verdasco. Tsonga was on fire. And his play was both powerful and beautiful. So now instead of having him losing to Mardy in round 4, I think he's going to the semi's. I'm probably wrong, but I loved what I saw that match.

Fair enough. When I compare him to Ferrero, he seems more youthful and inexperienced. Given that Tipsarevic hasn't had many of these opportunities in GSs, I just didn't have a great feeling about picking him even though he was my initial pick.

Now, I'm wondering whether I should have stayed with him.:)

Those with Janko advance. The 12 with Ferrero move to the losers lounge. Still, solid effort by all.

I already took Tipsy, but if I was picking that match, I'd have gone JCF anyways. Glad I didn't, going to really enjoy the Tsonga-Fish match but be really angry if Fish wins (or if Tsonga wins and takes out TMF next round...)

Also wow, Dolgopolov is actually giving Djokovic a match thus far.

So the bunch of people who picked Tipsarevic like me are free to look now at the bottom half of the draw. Most still have 7 of the 8 players to pick.
Ferrer-Roddick, Simon-Isner.... very, very tough. I was thinking Ferrer since last round (that is why I already picked Roddick in the first place), but I don't know what Andy can pull off. I'll probably eventually go with David.

Lots of people with plenty of options. But by now it comes down to feelings. As in:
"I feel I am going to make an ass out of myself with this next pick"

Man, Tsonga is good. Fun match to watch. My staying alive depends on the outcome of this fifth set, but for what it's worth I ended up picking Simon. I want Roddick to beat Ferrer, but I don't think it's that likely. I have a rule against picking against players I like. I think Andy's got a definite shot though - if he serves well and the groundies hold up, I like his chances, especially in New York under the lights.

With Federer still to play:

62 Tipsarevic
26 Federer
20 Fish
12 Ferrero
10 Tsonga

130 - 32 = 98 (That's right. We have gone under 100!)

Man, the real tragedy in the rain delay schedule is that the Roddick-Ferrer match is first on court at 11a, before anyone shows up. If it was a normal day, that'd be a 7pm night match - Andy would be able to really feed off the NYC crowd at night and get himself a better shot at winning. Roddick's team probably isn't too happy with USTA scheduling about that one - they shoulda put him as the second match on Ashe at the least. I think the Ferrer pickers will end up going through in 4 sets, but I hope A-Rod can get something going.

This is one of my all time favorite H2h's, Vivg (though I think Delpo/Simon is now my top match up to watch). Their games contrast so well, and they are both fighters. Even when Andy has been playing very well, David matched up well. They played a match in Miami in '06 that was so great, third set was all tension and great shot making.

Ferrer leads their career h2h. He also leads their h2h on hardcourts.

Of those who have picked so far, Federer is around 40, with Tsonga and Djokovic around 20 each. Give or take.

We can't until they complete the 4 round of 16 matches from day 9.

Stay tuned...

And if it happens, that means my day 10 breakdown means absolutely nothing since 50 Ferrer pickers are among them (actually 49, because one of the no-picks for day 10 was a day 9 Ferrer picker)

Way to go Andy! I, on the other hand, am clinging for dear life on court 17, where I'm depending on Simon to break Isner just to hang on. Greaaaaaaat.

That'd leave 26 in the draw, wow.

I'm impressed. You are correct. If Ferrer and Simon go down, that would be 96-50-18 = 28, less one Isner picker, who double-picked for day 10, and one Murray picker, who failed to make a day 10 pick = 26

Well, fine. Simon double-cheeked me, but now I can root for Federer tonight since my Tsonga pick is moot.

Be interesting to see where this leaves us, with only 26 players going into the semis. I don't believe anyone has Janko, but there were a lot of picks for both Federer and Tsonga, and some for Nole as well. The game's walls definitely closed in big time today.

Tough being the controlling one in the relationship. I totally screwed Blomgren as he had picked Djokovic and I Federer but I mistyped the entries in the wrong places. Now he is out and I am still in but with his pick.....wonder if this karma can work in my favor but I have to admit that I did this when I get home from work.....
