    Re: Men's USOSP Picks & Results Thread

    thanks Shtexas

    looks like Verdasco is the bandwagon with about 77 ... followed by Davydenko and Istomin at around 40 each ... Davy, when did you fall so low as to become a first day pick?

    another glorious US Open SP! )

    Re: Men's USOSP Picks & Results Thread

    I have the breakdown. But, I am giving our friend Drop-shot some time to do his commentary with them. If he isn't able to in a bit, I will put up the dry numbers. But, yes, Verdasco has 78. 41 each for Davydenko and Istomin.

    He's fallen lower than you think: I didn't even consider him a safe pick for round one. He retired in Cincinnati after losing a 6-0 set to Djokovic. I don't know who Guido Pella is, but I like his chances against a creaky old Davykenko with a bum something-or-other in best of five. Which probably means all 41 of you are safe.

    Oh it seems like yesterday that we were jumping around corpses at Wimbledon and now we're back!

    349 presented themselves to this year's US torture session. 1 realized early on the mistake he'd made and committed hara kiri with a an Invalid Pick.

    The rest:

    Verdasco 78: great choice now and next round. I'm almost wishing I had made it as well.

    Davydenko 41: I don't care that he's playing an Argentine qualifier who's playing his first Grand Slam match ever. He just can't be trusted anymore. If he manages to not lose, he's done for against Mardy.

    Istomin 41: Wow. Just amazed by how many would place their fate with a no seed like Denis.

    Chardy 35: in form Frenchman plays nobody's hardcourter Volandri. He should win.

    Granollers 34: hmmmm, yes he's seeded; but he remains a claycourter at heart. A loss would not surprise anyone.

    Nishikori 29: he has two easy rounds before he enters Russian Roulette territory.

    Fish 23: he's been playing so-so and Soeda has had a few wins during the summer. Personally I would've used the Fish in R-2.

    Dodig 19: he plays someone I've never heard of and then Murray. Out of all the risky picks I like this one best.

    Simon 13: like so many, two easy rounds, then Fish = ??? , and then Federer = X

    Phau 9: plays who?! Anyway, should he win (which I'm not that confident) he plays Roger. Valid reasoning.

    Cilic 5: due to clash with Nishikori in R-3 and Tsonga in R-4. Use him now before offer expires!

    F. Mayer 5: hmmmmmm, seed upset alert!

    Ramos 2: he's cooled down a lot since the season began. A win over Ginepri is not a given. On the contrary.

    Ebden 2: slight advantage over Ito.

    Lopez 2: yeah, I guess so. He should win two rounds and lose to Murray.

    Falla 2: 50-50%

    Ramirez Hidalgo 2: bye bye!

    Blake 1: he just might win against Lacko. Might.

    Ginepri 1: I think it's been a year since we last heard of him. Not too inspiring.

    Ito 1: gutsy pick. And when I say gutsy I mean suicidal.

    Kavcic 1: plays Cipolla so you could say he's the lesser of two risks here.

    Brands 1: against Ungur the Roland Garros gravedigger! Yikes!

    Reynolds 1: another one who likes to live on the edge.
    Meet again we do, old foe...

    Took a while, but we lost our first players - 5 "retired" with Mayer.

    I am newbie around here, so I'm extra intrigued - how can someone make an invalid pick? Did he or she choose Nadal?
