Welcome to Day 8! Happy Labor Day!

Today, we start the men's round of 16.

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 a good idea to check it so you don't duplicate a pick.

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

Post your Day 8 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by the start of play in New York, rain or shine, that is Monday, September 5, 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".

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!

Monday’s schedule of play consists of ONLY THE 4 FOURTH ROUND MATCHES FROM TOP half of the men’s draw:

Novak Djokovic SRB (1) v Alexandr Dolgopolov UKR (22)
Janko Tipsarevic SRB (20) v Juan Carlos Ferrero ESP
Roger Federer SUI (3) v Juan Monaco ARG
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga FRA (11) v Mardy Fish USA (8)

I haven't used the top quarter of the draw AT ALL, betting heavily on being right about the second quarter results. Somewhat sadly, I will stick with the plan (sorry, Roger).

Anderson - Nalbandian - Haase - Verdasco - Lopez - Fish - Roddick - Federer

Why did I pick Tipsarevic opening round? Why, why, why?

On the bright side, if I lose tomorrow, it saves me from the headache of a Day 9 pick...

Pick: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (subject to change)

Wow... at least two matches have had picks on both sides.
I think I know what the "right" pick would be based on what I expect to happen, but my heart utterly forbids me from picking my man RF at this point. So I'll take my chances with Janko. It is risky, but it is the only pick I can live with.

Pick: Tipsarevic

Ugghh. There are two obvious winners today, but I don't want to use them yet (although I see quite a few people picking Federer already). The other two matches are not obvious at all. Evidently, it's time we start cutting down this massive field still remaining in the game.

Day 1: Petzschner
Day 2: Mayer
Day 3: Lopez
Day 4: Verdasco
Day 5: Simon
Day 6: Ferrero
Day 7: Isner
