David Nalbandian
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
Tomas Berdych
James Blake
Murray/Vizner
Clement/Llodra

All my picks are probably going to be wrong but I'm just going with the players I want to win :)


You're not looking too bad right now... ;-()

Ahh we should be used to it by now, Somil loves to use reverse phychology  :rofl_2:

Well, I did actually only pick the players who I wanted to win who were probably not favourites but it worked out  :)

You certainly did Somil, so fair play to you, and I say good job :applause:

Murray and Vizner may have let down my full house, and we still got Bedbrain to go :( I wish Roddick - Simon was a pick because I would have picked Roddick for that.

I think I'd have gone with Roddick there too after his excellent performance over Lopez the other day.
We both need a berdbrain win there  :)
Kohli let me down, he played so well over Ferrer whereas Blake struggled in his first match  :Confused:
Coetzee/Moodie have done me a big favour beating Murray and Vizner.

You need Davydenko in the interboard though, and seeing you've already got number 1 in pick ems, you probably would rather Davydenko win?

You know my picks better than I do  :rofl_2:
Yeah suppose since I have the number 1 all sewn up over here it'll be better for me to get Davydenko for the Interboard. Although today in the Interboard has kind of knocked the wind out of my sails for that ranking. But we'll keep going until the very end  ;-()

But look at it the positive way BGT. At only 1 point per match for a win there you missed the best round.

Unfortunately 2 of our picks for this round will become invaild after Fed's withdrawal before the match with Blake and Nadal pulling out of the doubles before the match. So tomorrow we will have to have all matches as picks.

I'm through with this tournament!  Roger had to retire the FIRST time in his entire career!  Over 700 matches played and he had to retire! :(

I just hope he'll be ok for the Year end.   Oh well... I wasn't doing that great in this game any how! :whistle:

Boy Dallas, try imagining what its like to have your idol/absolute favorite, whatever you want to call them, out since the end of July. In the process missing the whole US Open Series, the Olympics, the US Open and the YEC  :(  :(
