Welcome to Day 4 of the 2018 Indian Wells Men’s Suicide Pool!

You will be making one pick EACH DAY of the men’s event (NOT one each round). Once you use a player, you may never use him again.

please post your picks like this:
Day 3: Robin Soderling
Day 2: Mats Wilander
Day 1: Bjorn Borg

It is very important you follow the schedule of play for the day posted below. This may be the first round, but only half of the draw plays Sunday.

Post your Day 4 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in Indian Wells, rain or shine. For Day 4 that’s Sunday, March 10, 11 AM Pacific Time. Do not be late. 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."

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, he obviously cannot win his match. You do not get a substitute (lucky loser). You are choosing 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.

Thanks for joining us! And good luck!

Dry, This is too f-ing funny that you were the only one to survive THREE days of an SP, even a practice one. Congratulations. Hope you can beat the draw, though frankly, as weird as these results have been, I don't like your chances on that.
