    Would it bend the rules too much to have only one pick for both those days?
    It's not bending any rules. We always planned only one semi pick.

    That thread has been delayed only because we have so many people remaining. But, with people picking opposing players in matches, it won't be long.

    IE...tomorrow! We'll probably lose near half (just over or just under depending on who wins.)

    We've lost one person who chose Tursunov, but all the Berdych pickers can breath until their day 7 choices start playing later. It looks like all those who chose Haas on day 6 are in good shape...so far.

    I think we've only lost two or three: one or two Hewitts and one Tursunov.

    Need to start losing some more folks ... too hard to read through everyone that's left, and the Day Pick posts are so long!

    Assuming Haas gets through, we have 76 left for day 7:

    Ferrer - 28
    Gasquet - 27
    Robredo - 10
    Fish - 8
    Roddick - 2
    Federer - 1

    SO we may lose as many as 58, or may only lose 18 (or more likely some number in between.)

    Us Ferrer pickers are feeling a little tense right now.

    Correction. We had one e-mail pick I failed to count for day 7. One more for Ferrer. One more who just became very uneasy.

    I considered picking Ferrer too and right now I feel good about not doing it ...

    Woo-hoo...top 50 in both! In Robredo wins for me too...that'll be top 25 (or so) in both.
