Wow, we're all about Kiefer, Rochus and Hanescu.

This could be the end of the suicide pool.

At least we're riding a couple of different horses, 3. Remember during the French, all six remaining players picked Nalbandian and dumped out.

Why didn't Victor let us know he was injured ? :'(

He is on my Romanian black list. ;D

One of my suicide pick rules:

Never pick someone who was in a final just two days before their first match in a slam. At least not in the early rounds.

Picking Pavel wouldn't have worked either.

Gerna:
I PM'd you about the change in things for the US, with the 1st round going 3 days, and left a message in the thread as well for the days. My apologies for not being able to connect with you in time.
Hope to see you back for the Australian, and that you're ready to wipe the floor with the rest of us.

I know,3mlm

But Victor was in a semifinal before the Slam, not a final, and won his 1st round.

Anyway, thanks for the advice.
