Welcome to Day 4 of the men’s suicide pool for the United States Open – 2007 edition.

Remember, once you use a player, you can never use them again. There 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. EVEN IF MOST PLAYERS FROM THE TOP HALF OF THE DRAW ARE PLAYING ON THURSDAY, TWO MATCHES PLAYED WEDNESDAY. BE CAREFUL.

Post your Day 4 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by Thursday, August 30, 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!

Thursday’s schedule of play consists of the 14 REMAINING (out of 16) SECOND ROUND MATCHES FROM THE TOP half of the men’s draw:

Feliciano Lopez (ESP) vs Igor Andreev (RUS)
(WC)Donald Young (USA) vs (13)Richard Gasquet (FRA)

BTW, does anyone else think that Petzchsner should get on the German version of Wheel of Fortune and buy a bloody vowel?

After getting burned in the early slams this year by going off the beaten path, I think I'm ready to make a pick for Day 4 of the Men's draw that's away from the seeds. And that pick is...

LLODRA!

Day 4: Igor Andreev
Agreed, think today has fewer 'easy' choices than yesterday. Don't know if you want to be swayed or not but my personal opinion on your pick is after the colon (highlight to read): FLo's kinda flaky but I strongly suspect he'll beat the Russian.

FourTeller
08-29-2007, 04:33 PM
As for my own pick, I'll keep on living close to the edge far away from bandwagons or seeds and go with another Frenchman in...

Michael Llodra.

Well, I was gonna pick Federer, but seeing as he's ineligible for this round, it is with a heavy heart that I go with Tomas Berdych. ;)

Geeze, these two Wednesday night round 2 matches are messing everything up. I'm going to have to go a round ahead in the "pick whoever faces Roger next" theory.

Richard Gasquet FRA (13) - a round earlier than I wanted.

I'm amazed how many people are willing to burn Haas, Gasquet, and Berdych in this round. Of course the only one who comes out looking good in the suicide pool is the person who wins and I don't have a crystal ball.
