I'll go with Ljubicic, like I did in IW. He upheld his end there and hopefully I don't jinx him.

LOL. That's so funny I think I'll take Safin too. Now watch him give it up to Labadze.

Or else win the tournament.

Davydenko for me,

much for the same reason as day # 2, I eventually would like Monfils to go deep into a draw, just don't believe it will happen during the hard court season, but either way I am happy.

Davydenko to round # 4, uncharted territory for me!

I have picked Youzhny in the past and he really let me down. But this time if he loses im gonna physically accaust him by taking his racquet and beating him to a pulp!

WATCH OUT MIKHAIL!

Bets is on the war path, armed and dangerous!

Wouldn't surprise me in the least if bets leaves Youzhny with one of a kind... By the time she's done with him, he'll be playing in WTA matches. Nothing like a female tennis fan scorned...

Well,

I am out of the pool but great win for Monfils!!!!!!!!!

What happened to Roddick?

They say wrist injury and they are speculating it may have happened when he slammed his racket when he double faulted the first set away. But, that is just speculation.

Roddick sustained the wrist injury in the 11th game of the opening set while trying to respond to a forceful Verdasco return. The wrist sprain restricted Roddick on his second serve ¬ó a shot that relies on a loose wrist to hit up and out to produce the spin on his kick serve ¬ó and on his forehand.

"He hit a return really deep, I kind of did one of these real quick and just caught something the wrong way, just jammed it a little bit," Roddick said. "I have decent strength and I can squeeze it, so that's a very good sign.(Hitting) kick serves were a bit of a struggle and kind of really getting over a forehand was a little bit of a struggle. But trying to hit flat and hitting my flat serve was okay but you're only going to go so far with that without a second serve and kind of a forehand you can really come over."

He's close to giving it up to Labadze. 6-6 in the third set.

But Safin wins 7-5 in the third set tiebreaker. We're still alive, Seb.

But with such a slim margin of victory, I still don't believe in "savin the Safin."

I've used Safin twice now for the suicide pools, risky manoeuvre at best ... I thought we were plenty early with Safin this time, but the guy can lose to anyone.

and now that he's had such a close call, he'll probably sweep through the rest of the draw and put us out that way!

I'm out anyway. Kiefer losing to Mayer :P
