    Day 5 Mens Picks - IW Suicide Pool

    Welcome to Day 5 of the Indian Wells (Pacific Life Open) Mens suicide pool. Day 5 for the men is Tuesday, March 13, 2007.

    Remember once you use a player, you can never use them again.

    It is very important you follow the posted schedule of play for the day.

    Post your Day 5 pick by replying in this thread. Your pick must be in before the start of play - that is Tuesday – 10:00 AM Pacific Coast Time (that's 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time, 6:00 P.M. GMT)

    AND PLEASE NOTE: We are "self scoring" our practice pools. As you look down the thread, you'll see people are listing their Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, and then Day 5 picks to track their results. If you can post your selections this way, it is greatly appreciated!

    It looks to be the bottom half of the draw:

    (8)LJUBICIC, Ivan v. (10)NALBANDIAN, David
    (15)GASQUET, Richard v. (3)RODDICK, Andy
    (30)CHELA, Juan Ignacio v. (WC)RUSSELL, Michael
    (22)FERRERO, Juan Carlos v. (2)NADAL, Rafael

    Re: Day 5 Mens Picks - IW Suicide Pool

    Day 1: Clement
    Day 2: Moya
    Day 3: Soderling
    Day 4: Haas

    Day 5: Ljubicic I've been thinking about this constantly since last night. I've finally decided to move from the tougher matchup, and put my faith in Nadal to the semis. So my day 5 pick is now (yawn) Chela.
    Happy 100th birthday, Ella, the first lady of jazz.

    Re: Day 5 Mens Picks - IW Suicide Pool

    this totally sucks. Two matches that have a player that has to be saved, a dirt baller vs. a wildcard, and two good, but unpredictable players.

    Day 1: Del Potro
    Day 2: Querrey
    Day 3: Soderling
    Day 4: Gasquet

    Day 5: Ivan Ljubicic :
    with Lucie at Indian Wells

    Day 5: Chela (I really really REALLY tried to avoid the bandwagon..but there seems to not be any other logical choice :-/)
