Welcome to Day 5 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. PLEASE CHECK THE THREAD OUT.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU FOLLOW THE POSTED SCHEDULE OF PLAY BELOW. BE CAREFUL. We have lost people who chose a player not playing on that day or chose a player who already lost.

Post your Day 5 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by Friday, August 31, 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!

Friday’s schedule of play consists of the 16 SECOND ROUND MATCHES FROM THE BOTTOM half of the men’s draw:

(8)Tommy Robredo (ESP) vs Mardy Fish (USA)

He may make it farther, but even if he does, I can't see myself ever having as much faith in him to win as I do now.

Too bad I took Chela in an earlier round- he looks to be the most viable pick at this point. Instead I'll go with Juan Monaco to beat "Howdy" Dudi Sela.

Want to save him, Craig. Just in case. This part of the draw could turn very funky after tomorrow. And I'd have no more use for Ginepri.

I hope you're wrong. I remember a certain one turning his year around with a run to the semifinals in 2005. ;)

So I don't dispute that Pavel could beat Ljubicic. But why would someone pick him when they could choose from among Moya (to beat Kunitsyn), Monaco (Sela) and Chela (Odesnik) among others?!?!? :confused:

Well I don't know if you've heard, but Odesnik is one powerful little elf. He's going to crush Chela :)
