Djokovic & Federer are not playing good,from what iv seen thay might go down.I feel these are the 2 hardest picks.Seppi so far has played great here,Karlovic has the bomb of a serve,99% i would have Roger 2 win V Karlovic.ATM i feel both matches could go eather way.Chris you near had me to go against the no 1 & no 3 seeds.

That would have been a huge call Sid  :)) I agree completely what you've said about both- right now they are harder to pick than they were just a few months back. Should be very interesting.

Thursday's Picks I've added 2 extra ones because of what happened in Round 2

Blake vs Gulbis
Seppi vs Djokovic
Federer vs Karlovic
Haas vs Nadal    
Soderling vs Kohlschreiber
Tursunov vs Murray
Bryan/Bryan vs Fyrstenberg/Matkowski
Bhupathi/Knowles vs Fish/Isner or Bjorkman/Ullyett

If Bjorkman/Ullyett then I choose them, but otherwise I pick Bhupathi/Knowles.

Self-praise is for losers. Be a winner. Stand for something. Always have class, and be humble.
