Am I the first one to respond? Hmm... Hope I'm doing this right. I'll take that guy playing Federer JUST KIDDING!
This is getting kind of tough now. Not sure if my strategy is going to work since this is my first suicide pool.
I'll take MARIO ANCIC.

These are some very hard matches to choose from. I don't think I've ever had this hard of a time deciding. Well I guess I'm going to take
06-29-2006, 11:07 AM
Jon D-oh takes Jonas Bjorkman for Day 5

Radek Stepanek, please.
06-29-2006, 11:59 AM
This really is getting tough but I'll choose Bjorkman.
06-29-2006, 12:13 PM
He's getting awfully close to the Fed now so my pick is...
Mario Ancic, CRO
Ferrer is up 2 sets and a break so I'm feeling confident about selecting for Day 5. Geez. It feels like it should be the second week with these selections! I'm almost grateful for Domachowska for losing. Not sure I can handle the stress of still being in two competitions.
Anyway, Selection #5 is Mr. Martina Hingis, aka Radek Stepanek.

Tomorrow is definitely a bit of a minefield, so I'll play it safe and hope it won't haunt me later.
06-29-2006, 01:11 PM
I will take
Mario Ancic Please :)

wanted to make sure we had cphsrh's back...he left a note in his day 4 thread saying he didn't have internet access, and left his Day 5 pick.
cphsrh takes James Blake.
06-29-2006, 01:50 PM
It hurts, but it's going to have to be Ancic.
06-29-2006, 01:53 PM
06-29-2006, 01:57 PM
I'll be out on Friday, so if Jonas makes it,
DAY 6 pick: Nieminen
06-29-2006, 02:02 PM
Boy, it's an ever finer line between picking safely and not burning players who will go deeper in the draw. And at least three of these matches are way too close to call. I guess I'll have to go with future top-5 marvel NOVAK DJOKOVIC (I just hope this time he doesn't start cramping or becomes short of breath :-/ )
06-29-2006, 02:20 PM
For me : Mario Ancic :)
06-29-2006, 02:28 PM
back and forth between Steps and Blake. I'll go with James Blake! He will tame the beast
06-29-2006, 02:33 PM

06-29-2006, 03:24 PM
Mario Ancic, please
06-29-2006, 03:29 PM
After much deliberation...I'll take Mario Ancic, please. :)
06-29-2006, 03:29 PM
06-29-2006, 03:46 PM
I'll take Nalbandian and hope he doesn't make it to the semis. Besides, I'll probably be knocked out by a bad pick before long, so why bother looking too far ahead?

06-29-2006, 05:56 PM
I've got a good feeling about Jonas Bjorkman! He's got another round in left in those legs!
06-29-2006, 05:56 PM

I assure you, both of us SP lifeguards (shtexas and myself) applaud your excellent ability at spotting upcoming talent!
06-29-2006, 06:07 PM
With the love shown by vibroboy for him (future top 5 - yes!), I must also choose:
06-29-2006, 06:15 PM
06-29-2006, 06:27 PM
06-29-2006, 06:28 PM
I hope I don't pay for this later (but I'll have lots of company)....
06-29-2006, 06:33 PM
06-29-2006, 06:43 PM
:-/ Â*to the extreme.
Enough of this mishigas, please god give me a sign. Â*Are we having fun yet?
I'm hoping he won't force me to play "Horse With No Name" on the jukebox in the loser's lounge.
Is this the right thread?
06-29-2006, 07:12 PM
Berdych or Bjorkman, Bracciali or Blake?? Well, begone with the Bs, I'm going with:
06-29-2006, 07:13 PM
06-29-2006, 07:25 PM
He's got one more round in him!
06-29-2006, 07:29 PM
06-29-2006, 07:46 PM
06-29-2006, 08:17 PM
Mario Ancic :-/
06-29-2006, 08:25 PM
After sweating through the Nadal match...what a comeback from 2 sets down - He can't possibly do it again against Agassi.
Jonas Bjorkman however, I hope/think has at least another match in him!
I take Jonas Bjorkman - Game on!!!
06-29-2006, 08:30 PM
Three players to choose from in my stratagem....
Haas, Berdych, Stepanek.
I have already used Ferrero.....so even though I give the slight nod to Stepanek, it is very slight.
And then Haas and Berdych ........I feel a cigarette paper seperates these two..Haas has the experience but it equals out with the Berdych drive. Talent is remarkable in both.
Oh what the hell, Stepanek
06-29-2006, 08:47 PM
I'll go out on a limb and go with former No. 1 Juan Carlos Ferrero.
06-29-2006, 08:51 PM
06-29-2006, 08:55 PM
He knocked me out of the French pool, but I'll try him again:
06-29-2006, 08:57 PM
06-29-2006, 08:59 PM
Mario Ancic, please ;D
06-29-2006, 09:12 PM
06-29-2006, 09:13 PM
My Day 5 pick: Radek Stepanek.
Mario Ancic (CRO), please. Thank you.
06-29-2006, 09:49 PM
I've been deliberating for like the whole night.. and half the day...
Youzhny or Djokovic? Ferrero or Stepanek?
This is a damn tough choice to make and I'm going with...

I wish I could decide between Haas and Berdych but I just can't. As half the people here have done I'll take:
06-30-2006, 02:29 AM
Bjorkman for the block
06-30-2006, 02:49 AM
I continue sticking to the veterans and pick Bjorkman for today.
06-30-2006, 03:37 AM
06-30-2006, 03:39 AM
Gotta go with Super Mario Ancic
