Congratulations and Welcome to Day 9 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 (sometimes twice) so you can check the choices you have already made. PLEASE CHECK THE THREAD OUT. WE LOST ANOTHER TO A DOUBLE-PICK ON DAY 8.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU FOLLOW THE POSTED SCHEDULE OF PLAY BELOW. BE CAREFUL.

Post your Day 9 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by Tuesday, September 4, 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!

Tuesday’s schedule of play consists of the 4 FOURTH ROUND MATCHES FROM THE BOTTOM half of the men’s draw:

Ernests Gulbis (LAT) vs (17)Carlos Moya (ESP)
(23)Juan Monaco (ARG) vs (3)Novak Djokovic (SRB)
Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI) vs (20)Juan Ignacio Chela (ARG)
(15)David Ferrer (ESP) vs (2)Rafael Nadal (ESP)

Because Haas beat Blake and the men's quarters are played on separate days, I can no longer beat the draw...but I will play on...

I pick Juan Ignacio Chela!

That's what I've been doing trying to make this pick, shtexas. This round is horrible. Of the logical picks, I've either taken them or want to save them.

So I'll send up a prayer to the tennis gods and pick.....

Wawrinka

Dear shtexas,
I know you are waiting for our picks, but it has been hot as hell here in LA all week and my brain is totally fried. I had to use a cold compress I have for my knees on one of my cats because she was panting with her mouth open so badly. I thought I might have to take her to emergency, and this in the middle of the Blake-Haas match. But the cold compress seemed to do her good. In addition, everyone I have picked is still in the draw! HOW RUDE OF THEM! I don't have confidence in picking either Gulbis or Wawrinka because I think their Cinderella bubbles are ready to burst. I've been trying to project my future options..... oh what the hell, I'm into my second bottle of wine.

My pick is Djokovic.
