    Sure is grand to be in the updated thread (no matter what those multiple-medal winner snobs say) for the first time in a while.

    So ... if Fish can manage to knock off Nadal, there will only be a couple of us with a good chance. And it looks like if I can get through tomorrow I'll have to break my top-14 string and choose Fish (unlikely) or JMDP. To beat the draw, basically, I need Fish to win. Guess I should have gambled on him to beat Monfils instead of waiting. Fell in love with my new strategy.

    That was all part of a running joke between a couple of us, DoubleDog. I think any of us that have played a few SPs get excited about making it to the update thread. Short of winning the game, it's the other big accomplishment in a Suicide Pool.

    Oh absolutely. I won a couple this year, but making the updated thread of four of the eight SPs I played is the second line on my TAT contest resume, to be sure.
    It's hard out here for a Zuz.

    omigod you guys! It's the updated P&R thread. I thought this day might never come. I am surprised ... I'm in such a state of shock, that I can't speak. So I'll just hand out copies of my mimeographed acceptance speech.

    Where's that red carpet?

    Will TAT give you the MVP of the SP this year? Reason is you have had a great year as I went a whopping 0 for 2008 SP.

    So (if we should make it that far) do we have to make two quarterfinals picks, or just one?

    This ain't Wimbledon, kmart. You have two picks to make in the quarters. We've said since we started SPs that the US Open is the most challenging of all the games we play every year, because of this and the three day first round.

    Day 9 breakdown:

    24 - Davydenko
    7 - Roddick
    1 - Djokovic

    THAT was a very nice thing to say, Salmon. Thank you. Stuff like that (and the many other compliments we've received this go 'round) make the work that goes into our SPs worthwhile.

    Ok, that's what I was planning on anyways, but I wasn't sure. Thanks for clearing it up for me.
