SF picks

Murray v Karlovic (Surely Ivo can't continue :confused1:)

Nadal v Djokovic (boy, this is tough.  Honesly, I have no idea who will win this! :confused1:)  Let me think a moment and I'll come back. Heck, I'm so far out of it that it probably doesn't matter!

Bryan Bryan v Bhupathi Knowles

OK... I'll go with Djokovic only because I really do think Nadal is tired and he has accomplished the goal of reaching #1 regardless of whether he wins or loses tomorrow.

Sid you've messed it up a little mate as we already have the Bryans vs Bhupathi/Knowles as one of Friday's picks- so that doubles match needs to be Ram/Erlich vs Nestor/Zimonjic


SO EVERYBODY PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR DOUBLES PICK AND PICK ONE OF THE FOLLOWING PLAYERS INSTEAD:

[3] J Erlich (ISR) / A Ram (ISR) vs [2] D Nestor (CAN) / N Zimonjic (SRB)

Hi Chris thx for the update after round 3.
(Hi Sid, looks as if you're on for another fantastic round here and right now I can't see you not winning this title- you are building up a decent lead from quick calculations and my money is on you taking this title mate)

Looking @ the scores Chris there not much day light there,things look real close to me.

But key thing is Sid, when I said that to you last night you were 3/3 whereas your closest rival was 1/3  :)

Murrayfan read my post a few above to ensure you get the right pick in!

Being in the position I am I've no idea which one of my matches I should take a gamble on as I know one surprise pick right for me will move me upto top 3 or 4, so I'll have to think long and hard now.

I nearly forgot to come back here but thankfully just made it. Going with Djoko as a win there could see me rise to 5th place or so.
