    Day 13 (Sat) Men's USO Suicide Pool Pick

    Welcome to Day 13 of the US Open Suicide Pool - the Men's Semifinals!

    Congratulations to our 5 survivors for making it this far!

    I'll keep it simple. You know what to do.

    Pick a player you have not chosen previously. Remember, you are picking a player to win his semi, but then lose to the player you are holding for the final.

    Your pick must be in before the start of play. That is Saturday, September 6, 2008 at 11:00 AM eastern time, rain or shine. I will lock the thread at the deadline.

    Your choices for the men's semis:

    Nadal, Rafael ESP (1) v. Murray, Andy GBR (6)
    Djokovic, Novak SRB (3) v. Federer, Roger, SUI (2)

    so psyched to have made it this far! Here's to having saving the correct two players, and using them in the correct order


    My Day 13 pick: ANDY MURRAY (sorry, Kayce!)

    Don't apologize to me Moose... lol... My pick is...


    Andy Murray



    I've been planning this the entire tounament. It's what I have for all of the contests. Nole over Andy in the final. The final would be a good run for Andy, but I don't think he could stand the pressure. Which of course means he will win it!

    (And Nole just happens to be one of my favorite players too!)

    Absolutely not! You think I'd take away an award from someone who puts Novak as the champion of my favorite Slam

    Just need OConn. Will OConn go Federer today, and hold Nadal, or Nadal today, and hold Federer?

    Please don't tell me we are going to have a no-pick this late in the game?
