So far, so good.

Those who chose Robredo, Tsonga, Wawrinka, Youzhny, Ginepri, Safin and Kohlschreiber have advanced.

The only two people we have lost today, at this point, are the one person who chose Starace and the one person who chose Przyzeizny.

Przyziezny: 1 :shocked:
I raised my eyebrows too when I saw that one - maybe it was a patriotic or sentimental pick like the person who chose Cuevas earlier on... Surprised no one went with Gulbis who had an easy win over Potato Starch Potito Starace :cheesy: Even knowing virtually nothing about the Latvian or his game, just comparing both players' results had me pretty convinced the seed wasn't going to make it past the first round...

shtexas
08-29-2007, 05:33 PM
So far, with Isner still on court (10 chose him), we have lost 15 contestants today, leaving us with 157.

Tursunov took out 11
Gonzalez took out 2
Starace took 1
Przyziezny took 1

Richard Gasquet, who had a blister in the middle of his right hand the size of a penny in Cincinnati, is pulling out! Having seen it firsthand, that was the deciding factor that pushed me to pick Tomas Berdych today.

I count 36 users who picked Gasquet today. Are they gone or do they get a Mulligan?

-Josh

EDIT - Turns out Gasquet pulled out because of a viral infection - soar throat and fever.

This is much much worse than what any of the Golovins etc did - at least they played. I never made them do not picks.

Did that scuzzball do this before 11:00? I almost checked back in to make sure Hingis and Gasquet were OK, a rather paranoid thing to do, but didn't. Wish I had...

Can I stay in? I would have taken Verdasco. I swear. :)

I am a dork. I wrote down 'Berdych' on my own scoresheet, I helped MariaFan make his pick (Gasquet, which as it turns out was just like not making a pick at all), but I never made my own pick. I'll feel better if Berdych loses, I guess.

At least I made my pick on the womens side. Sigh.

I always double-check "no-picks" and was surprised to see you made a women's but not a men's choice. You are not the first person to do this. Moose had a few who made their men's choice but not a women's choice just two days ago.

I sure am glad that I went with my 4th choice today! I hemmed and hawed, then waffled between Gasquet and Canas. Then I waffled at the last second and decided to choose Mirnyi, but as I was posting, my fingers typed Haas.

Not to be insensitivity, but the 9 of you who picked Lubjcic are getting exactly what you deserve :P I'm surprised he even made it to the 3rd round...he's the King of choking, the only reason no one hates him here is because he doesn't last long enough usually for people to consider picking him!

Aack....I knew Ljubicic was flakey. I knew he was a head case.

...But he was 6 and 0 lifetime against Chela. It was just too good of a matchup to pass up.

We'll now Ljubicic is 6-1 vs Chela and I'm out of the SP...oh well.

8 out with Calleri

OK, I've made mistakes in these pools, but I didn't understand the Calleri choice. So, he beat Hewitt. But, Monaco was the seed. It was a pick 'em to me.

It was a pick Monaco to me. :p

Not that I'm one to talk. I switched away from Capdeville to Benneteau. :confused:

That's what was even more surprising to me. Only one person picked Monaco, yet 8 picked Calleri. 8!

It's because he's prettier. You know how shallow society can be

I blame Dry. He saw Calleri defeat Hewitt live and convinced 7 others Calleri was on to greater things. ;)

I don't think I've ever taken a non seed after round 1 myself...I'm only surprised that so many took him though. Braver than me! I find some people are more suicidal than necessary sometimes, waiting too long to take the top players. The plus side is if their low picks make it through, they'll still be able to freely choose from the top people left, instead of having a few gone.

And then there were 15! Suddenly and inexplicably, only 15!

Those who chose Ferrer, Moya, Monaco and Wawrinka (nice call Lone Star) survive to day 8.

I will be starting an "Updated" Men's Picks & Results Thread for our 15 remaining players in the morning. I'll close this thread at that point.

FYI, Even thou he wasn't seeded, Calleri would have been a decent choice along the same lines that Ljubi appeared to be the same against Chela. Calleri was 3-0 H2H with Monaco before today. Let's just say that lot's of tables have been turned.
