    Day 8 (Mon) Men's US Open Suicide Pool Pick

    Welcome to day 8 of TAT's Fourth Annual US Open Men’s Suicide Pool. Congratulations on making it this far!

    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 is a “picks and results thread” posted so you can check the choices you have already made.

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

    Post your Day 8 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by the start of play in New York, rain or shine, that is Monday, September 1, 2008 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, so please don't wait until the last minute or you may find it locked when you hit "post".

    If you change your mind after you make your pick, and before the deadline, please make a second post advising us of your change - PLEASE DO NOT make your change in your original post, as we often go through the posts before closing to begin the task of updating the picks and results, and we might miss a change if you edit your original pick.

    Best of luck, and thank you for joining us!

    Monday’s schedule consists of 4 FOURTH ROUND MATCHES FROM THE TOP half of the men’s draw:

    Rafael Nadal ESP (1) v Sam Querrey USA
    Mardy Fish USA v Gael Monfils FRA (32)
    Kei Nishikori JPN v Juan Martin Del Potro ARG (17)
    Stanislas Wawrinka SUI (10) v Andy Murray GBR (6)

    Can't believe I am still here. Here's hoping for another day with a player I throughly enjoyed watching on Saturday. Really made me a fan.

    Juans Martins Del Potro*

    Assuming Gonzo comes through, things now get interesting ... I needed Blake or Ferrer to win so I could use one of them here. Now I either have to take Nadal or go outside of my top 14 seeds strategy. Still in great shape on the bottom half of the draw: Davydenko on Day 9, with Djokovic for the quarters and save Federer for the final. So that just leaves today's pick plus the semifinal from the upper half of the draw.

    Day 1: Andy Murray GBR (6)
    Day 2: Ivo Karlovic CRO (14)
    Day 3: Andy Roddick USA (8)
    Day 4: David Nalbandian ARG (7)
    Day 5: Fernando Verdasco ESP (13)
    Day 6: Stanislas Wawrinka SUI (10)
    Day 7: Fernando Gonzalez CHI (11)
    Day 8: Rafael Nadal ESP (1)

    Go Rafa! (still not convinced he wins this tourney; could see Monfils, JMDP, or Murray taking him out, so use him now and keep my top-14 seed streak for one more day)

    Can't believe I'm bandwaggoning again, but I've saved him for as long as I can... Del Potro for me, provided Gonzalez makes it through tonight.

    If Gonzalez makes it through, Vlad has made the shocking choice of Del Potro.
