    Dang you Tsonga, don't let me down now. Should have jumped the Nishikori train. Fish is playing good. :cry:

    Nishikori trolling like 75% of the field....should have stuck with my first instinct and played it safe with Delpo.

    Yeah, I'm really not liking what I'm seeing in that match. I don't even think that Nish is playing poorly, bur Berlocq is just hitting big shots and getting a ton of balls back that Nish isn't expecting to come back.

    If Nishikori loses I'll play my wildcard from winning the O2 last year and pick Del Potro

    Yikes! Nish now down a set and a break to Berlocq. Hold on to your hats ladies and gentleman, we might be headed for one of the biggest mass exoduses since that Ljubicic incident in 2010.

    Mass exodus is inevitable. This match is one-sided and going to be over very soon.

    I shoulda gone with my first instinct and picked Querrey.

    The fact that Nish is losing this bad to Berlocq of all people is flat out pathetic

    not really pathetic. he is a bit fragile generally, and has been hurt most of the year, withdrawing from two tourneys so far. he hung in there today the best he could it appeared.

    Nishi trolled us.

    He was the right pick for the moment. Berdy and Delpo are probably a day too early. Nishi was playing a clay courtier. Seemed a free pass. Had Delpo for next pick if this passed.

    Ahhh well, keep the ball rolling. See you guys in Miami(so to speak)

    Only 4 people survive to the Semis. 3 of them only have 1 eligible player left, so your picks have been entered automatically. The only one who actually needs to make a pick is beast_of_mallorca, who can choose from anyone except Berdych....nice job conserving your picks.

    Thank you all for playing. I'll provide an updated rankings/race image before the start of the Miami tournament.

    Thanks to CDNguy87, TopDawg for running things as usual!
