View Full Version : Men's Day 5 Pick Wimbledon SP



Drop-shot
06-25-2013, 03:06 PM
Welcome back to Day 5 of our 9th Annual Men's Wimbledon Suicide Pool.

Remember, you shall be making one pick EACH DAY of the Men’s event (NOT one each round), and once you use a player, you shall not be allowed to use him again. There is a “picks and results thread” posted so you can check the choices you have made.

It is very important that you follow our posted schedule of play for the day. Day 5's matches include the 8 third round matches from the BOTTOM HALF of the Men's Draw.

Post your Day 5 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the scheduled start of play for the day in London, rain or shine, that is, Friday, June 28th at 11:30 a.m. London time. For those in the US, London is five (5) hours later than the east coast 6:30 a.m., and eight (8) hours later than the West coast 3:30 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.

For those in other time zones this link may be useful: http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum...ime-Conversion

Since the object of the game is to pick a player that you are sure is going to win on that day, should your player withdraw, she obviously cannot win her match. You do not get a substitute (lucky loser) - you have chosen a player, not a spot in the draw. 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.

NOTE: for those whose Day 4 match has yet to finish or even begin, you must make a Day 5 pick just in case. Of course that to make it to day 6 first your day 4 pick must win and then your day 5.

Day 5 Matches
Lukasz Kubot (POL) v Benoit Paire (FRA) [25]
Adrian Mannarino (FRA) v Q Dustin Brown (GER)
Nicolas Almagro (ESP) [15] v Jerzy Janowicz (POL) [24]
Jurgen Melzer (AUT) v Sergiy Stakhovsky (UKR)

Ernests Gulbis (LAT) v Fernando Verdasco (ESP)
Juan Monaco (ARG) [22] v Kenny De Schepper (FRA)
Viktor Troicki (SRB) v Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) [20]
Tommy Robredo (ESP) [32] v Andy Murray (GBR) [2]

I'm going back and forth on this, and will probably continue to do so all day, but for now...

Mikhail Youzhny (hey, you gotta take a risk at some point, esp. since I've taken the highest seed in the third quarter...)

My day 5 pick is Adrian Mannarino. (I'm pretty sure we've never had a day with so many risky picks....I'm counting on Dustin Brown coming down to earth and realizing he's in the 3rd round of a major.....also, this pick is contingent on Dimitrov pulling out a win). Thanks....Glenn
