Welcome to Day 4 of the 2011 United States Open Men’s Suicide Pool! The men finally start round 2 with the top half of the draw.

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. It might be time to start checking it.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU FOLLOW THE POSTED SCHEDULE OF PLAY BELOW. BE CAREFUL.

Post your Day 4 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by the start of play in New York, rain or shine, that is Thursday, September 1, 2011 at 11:00 AM New York time (east coast), 8:00 AM on the west coast. For those in Europe, London is five (5) hours later than the east coast. Don’t be late as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. This thread will be locked at 11:00 AM EDT, so please don't wait until the last minute or you may find it locked when you hit "post".

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

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!

Thursday’s schedule of play consists of all 16 SECOND ROUND MATCHES FROM TOP half of the men’s draw:

Novak Djokovic SRB (1) v Carlos Berlocq ARG
Potito Starace ITA v Nikolay Davydenko RUS

Dolgopolov for me for day 4 please. I want to save him because I really think he can upset Gasquet, but... he's the guy I feel most comfortable with for a non-top 16 seed, which is what I'm going for right now - for some reason. On that note, PLEASE DON'T GET UPSET ALEXANDR, PLEASE DON'T GET UPSET ALEXANDR, PLEASE DON'T GET UPSET ALEXANDR, sigh.

Thank you.
