Welcome survivors to Day 10 of our 11th Annual Australian Open Men’s Suicide Pool. Today, we complete the quarterfinals.

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 and avoid accidentally using a player twice.

It is very important you follow the schedule of play for the day posted below.

Post your Day 10 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in Melbourne, rain or shine. For day 10, that’s Wednesday (January 28), 11:00 AM in AUSTRALIA. For those in the US, that is Tuesday (January 27) 7:00 PM EST. Please do not be late, as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. This thread will be locked at the deadline, 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.

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

Good luck!

Wednesday’s Order of Play consists of quarterfinal matches from the TOP half of the men’s draw:

Novak Djokovic (SRB) [1] vs Milos Raonic (CAN) [8]
Stan Wawrinka (SUI) [4] vs Kei Nishikori (JPN) [5]

My day 10 pick is Kei Nishikori. Now things are really getting dicey. But no matter what happens, I am delighted to be this far, making day 10 picks in both SP's. This is way better than I've ever done. Thanks for running the pool!!! GH

Crazy pick I know, but we've been traveling and I've been playing the SP without reference to the draw, so I'm just glad to make the updated picks and results thread.

OH!!!!! Somehow I managed not to process that the men's SF matches are on separate days! LOL, well, since there's just one final pick for me then, let's try to go out with one final win....

Day 1: Kevin Anderson.
Day 2: Janowicz.
Day 3: Gasquet.
Day 4: Isner.
Day 5: Dimitrov.
Day 6: Raonic.
Day 7: Berdych.
Day 8: Nishkori.
Day 9: Murray.

Day 10: Djokovic.

The men's semis are on separate days, but only one pick is due (otherwise no one could ever beat the draw at the Aussie). It will be due before start of play for the first men's semi.

Kei Nishikori. Thanks to Berdych I'm now one of the "walking dead", invisibly red, and can't win or even pick in the final. But I'm still here in limbo, picking away. A strange game this is.

Please be careful. Looking over the day 10 picks, I see a couple of double-picks.

Novak Djokovic please ... this is my last pick as I have no one to pick tomorrow since I've already played Berdych and Murray. Thanks to everyone running the pool and everyone who played and commented - this is always the highlight of my tennis season!

Novak Djokovic (SRB) [1] I'm changing my pick due to the fact I'm dead tomorrow with no pick. This was so much fun! Good luck all!
