    MEN Day 8 (Tue) Pick - NO PICK TODAY

    No new matches scheduled for the MEN. Just the remaining 4 third round matches we picked from on Saturday and the three (Roger got a walkover) 4th round matches in the top half of the draw we picked from on Monday.

    Stay tuned for Wednesday. Things may get crazy.

    So assuming no more matches get pushed back...

    Top half will have the day off on Wednesday
    Bottom half will play their 4th round matches on Wednesday
    Quarters for both halves on Thursday
    Semis Friday
    Final Sunday

    Or would they have the top half quarterfinal matches on Wednesday? Seems to me it would make sense if they had all the players play the final three matches in four days.

    You'd think so... but I'm not betting on anything.
    I'll miss you!

    Actually, there has been discussion of them starting the quarters for the top half of the draw on Wednesday while the 4th round is still going on for the men on the bottom half.

    But, there is still the matter of rain, so may not happen.

    Advantage Federer if that happens - as if he needed any more help for #5.

    none of this really matters because basically the bottom half is playing for the right to lose to federer... the scheduling doesnt really matter unless federer is upset...

    That's good. Apparently I've survived the bottom half third round (Berdych won before the rain) but I'm struggling to map out the draw with the lack of match play.

    Hey, we got through in straight sets (so sorry for the Tipsarevic pickers). But what next?
