Hmmm, another round with no PM and I missed it again.  I might be too busy to play these games in the end.  Not sure of too many outcomes today, just eliminate the picks that have played please.  I know Bags played, I will omit that.

Radek Stepanek
Tommy Robredo
Arnaud Clement
Jarkko Nieminen
Frank Dancevic
Stanislas Wawrinka
David Ferrer
Marc Gicquel
Andreas Seppi
Dancevic, Wawrinka, Ferrer, Gicquel and Seppi also played today!  :(

Yeah, I figured many of them hit the courts today.  The good news is I missed an early round so I didn't lose mega points.  Plus I caught up before day 4 which helps.  We will see if it makes a difference in the end. 

I really do think we need a PM system though for these picks.  I think it will help to keep the games more successful.  Well, at least for me. :)
yes, those early rounds are not important! and I agree we need a PM system.  :)

Overall I lost a potential 12 points.  I probably would have gone 50/50 just due to the fact I would be guessing on most.  So say a 6 point loss today.  Not the end of the world.  Thanks for letting me know which ones were done though.  :)
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Sid- I'll leave it down to you mate for atleast another round as I may not get the chance to come on here this evening, and if I do it will only be for about 20 minutes, so its probably best if you can continue(or anybody that wants to) and I'll get my picks in tomorrow morning  :)
