I wanted to pick Hrbaty as well... But I'm worried some drunk fan will shoot him dead during the match just for wearing that God-awful shirt...

So, I'm going with Sanguinetti.

LOL

If they let him live through today's match, then I may pick him on Day 4 or Day 6.

But first, I just wanted to know for sure that he'd survive the match.

Plus, he's let me down before a few times, but I think he came through for shtexas during the U.S. Open.

Help us! Hrbaty is about to drop the first set!

H20
01-16-2006, 04:59 PM
Bad luck.

My guy Norman just took the first set, good news for the Ollie fans too he also took the first set.

But then again Monfils dropped the first, if it continues like this a lot of people are going down.

I show 4 contestants who made it though day 1 that have apparently failed to make day 2 picks. So, we are down to 57.

And if things continue, 8 of us going down with Hrbaty. [smiley=asshole.gif]

He's making a comeback (2 - 0 in the third).

shtexas
01-16-2006, 05:54 PM
Monfils is down 2 sets. He would take down two more of us. I thought with 98 of us now, things would go better. At last year's USO, we were down to 1 mid-way through the 3rd round for the men. We may be on pace.

01-16-2006, 05:59 PM
At least the Rochus contingent, numbering 1/2 dozen strong, have all advanced.

H20
01-16-2006, 06:01 PM
But the ones who put their trust in Ollie won't be eliminated, he won easy in straight sets.
So thats certainly a few that are left
