Welcome to Day 3 of the men’s suicide pool for the 2007 edition of the United States Open.

You will be making one pick EACH DAY of the men’s event (NOT one each round), and once you use a player, you can never use them again. There will is a “picks and results thread” posted and updated once a day so you can check the choices you have already made.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU FOLLOW THE POSTED SCHEDULE OF PLAY BELOW. THIS IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT FOR THE US OPEN MEN’S EVENT, BECAUSE THE MEN’S FIRST ROUND MATCHES ARE SPREAD OVER 3 DAYS. SO, EVEN IF SOME PLAYERS FROM A CERTAIN HALF OF THE DRAW ARE PLAYING ON WEDNESDAY, THAT DOESN’T MEAN ALL OF THE MATCH-UPS FROM THAT HALF OF THE DRAW ARE PLAYED. BE CAREFUL.

Post your Day 3 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by Wednesday, August 29, 2007 at 11:00 AM New York time (east coast), 8:00 AM on the west coast. For those in Europe, London is five (5) hours later than the east coast. Don’t be late as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. This thread will be locked at 11:00 AM EDT, rain or shine, so please don't wait until the last minute or you may find it locked when you hit "post".

Best of luck!

Wednesday’s schedule of play consists of the 16 REMAINING FIRST ROUND MATCHES FROM THE BOTTOM half of the men’s draw (as some may have noticed, there are also two men’s second round matches played Wednesday night):

(8)Tommy Robredo (ESP) vs (LL) Bobby Reynolds (USA)
Mardy Fish (USA) vs (q) Bruno Echagaray (MEX)
(q) Michal Przyziezny (POL) vs Michael Berrer (GER)
Ernests Gulbis (LAT) vs (30)Potito Starace (ITA)
(17)Carlos Moya (ESP) vs (q) Bjorn Phau (GER)
Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (ESP) vs Igor Kunitsyn (RUS)
Mariano Zabaleta (ARG) vs Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER)
Nicolas Devilder (FRA) vs (11)Mikhail Youzhny (RUS)
(7)Fernando Gonzalez (CHI) vs Teimuraz Gabashvili (RUS)
Robby Ginepri (USA) vs Olivier Rochus (BEL)
Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI) vs Evgeny Korolev (RUS)
(q) Frank Dancevic (CAN) vs (25)Marat Safin (RUS)
(27)Dmitri Tursunov (RUS) vs Tim Henman (GBR)
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) vs Oscar Hernandez (ESP)
Janko Tipsarevic (SRB) vs (WC)Ryan Sweeting (USA)
(WC)Alun Jones (AUS) vs (2)Rafael Nadal (ESP)

Two second round matches on Wednesday night, if you dare:

(1) Roger Federer (SUI) vs (q) Paul Capdeville (CHI)
(q) Rik De Voest (RSA) vs (WC) John Isner (USA)

I'd like to think I will survive today despite everything Stepanek is doing, so...

Tommy Robredo.

(just saying, tipsarevic looks great on paper, but the guy's best results at us open have been 1st round in 03, 04, 05....)

I'd make Tursunov my Day 3 pick, but I'd feel just wrong picking against Henman in his last US Open. So instead, I'll look elsewhere for my pick. And when I look elsewhere, I find that my Day 3 Men's pick is...

TIPSAREVIC!

...that is, if Nalbandian makes it though his match today.

Wow...surprised to see not even a single person with this pick. He seems to be ok for round 1, but the question isn't IF he will blow up, but when - so:

(25)Marat Safin (RUS)

And if he loses...well I'll at least to get to cheer on a fellow Canuck! Although he has been playing some great tennis over the summer...maybe I'll have to think about it after all!

I was all set to take Kohlscheiber, given that Zabaleta hasn't won a match at the US since 2001. Then I saw that PEHK has only ever won one match at NY.

Since I can't pass, I'll take Mardy Fish.

Several solid options today especially among the 'T' names (making a certain seeded player with a decent draw a surprising early popular pick to me), but one first round bandwagon is more than enough for me and so I'll choose...

Philipp Kohlschreiber.
