We may have just finished one practice Suicide Pool, but here comes part II.

Hello, and welcome to Day 1 of the Men's Sony Ericsson/Miami Suicide Pool.

Your Day 1 Men's choice is from the 16 matches featuring non-seeded players from the BOTTOM half of the Men's draw. As always, you will be making one pick each day, and once you use a player, you cannot use them again for the remainder of the tournament.

Post your Day 1 Men's selection by responding in this thread. Since the SE/Miami is a "practice" pool, we will not keep a formal Picks and Results thread, so it is your responsibility to self-score your way through the tournament. We encourage you to do this by listing all your previous picks in your post for each day (simply cut and paste from the day before), as this has proven the best way to track your picks from our experience.

Your Day 1 Men's Pick is due no later than 11:00 a.m. (ET) on Wednesday, March 26 - that is 8:00 a.m. Pacific Time, 3:00 P.M. Greenwich Mean Time.

Good luck, and thanks for joining us!

Okay, I'll be the first: Grosjean.

Mostly because if I lost, I'd still be thrilled.

Xavier unfortunately, was on the opposing side of the net for the greatest tennis night of my life, Suliso.

I owe him this pick.

My grandmother can beat King Oscar on hard courts (and she has never played before).

Your grandmother could also be down 0-6, 0-5 0-40, and advance to the 2nd round due to Xavier's profanity laced tirade after getting called for his fifth foot fault in the match getting him bounced from Miami.

Guga. Isn't the crowd good for one match? Not on hard courts, you say? Well, I'm from Indy and I saw him win here on a hard court against an in-form Safin.. um, 7 years ago... but what the hell - go Guga!

Day 1: Kevin Anderson

Going out on a limb a little bit, but a) he seems to be a pretty decent player who is playing well right now; and b) winner gets Djokovic, and the veteran Calleri may be a little more inclined to say "what's the use". Hope I don't burn out on the first day.

His name sounds like John Mayer. "Sounds like" meaning "is the same as". For the last name at least.
