    Hope it works out bro went with the same high risk pick to hedge having Novak, Murray, Wawrinka, and Fed all available for the last 3 rounds.

    Appreciate it guys, thanks! I was inspired by Captain Ron's post of "you have to ask yourself if you want to be a pusher or not" :D

    Think the obvious play for me at this point is to roll with Wawrinka for the QF and then Fed and Nole/Murray winner and for the SF/F. Of course I could still get owned if Wawrinka decides to go into AO GOAT mode and wins it all :shock:

    But ya

    QF: Wawrinka

    Wonderful! I've always considered Kei to be the superior player on hard courts and clay. I remembered the only time Milos beat Kei was on grass which is Nishi's weakest surface. Glad Kei played good enough to win.

    Wow, this is really looking like a great pick now. The 3 people above you in the Race and now most people close behind have all been knocked out. If you can go the distance, you'll have an excellent shot at YE #1.

    Berdych could still very easily lose to Cilic, although at this point it might be the only viable pick for anyone who wants to win the whole thing.

    Gutted! I thought it wd be plain sailing if I cd get thro R16. I shd have never trusted my fate to a man who looks like he'd prefer to play darts (yup, I'm that bitter, as my chance to finish the year in the Top 10 have probably vanished :( )
    Great pick Romeo.
    Good luck to all those remaining.
    As ever, cheers for organising :)

    Nishikori doing the dirty work for me lol
    hope the birdman doesn't ruin it.
    And yeah I'd have a shot at year end # 1 if I win the tournament. If not I won't have no chance, no? Gonzo, Topdawg and yourself, so consistent in tournaments.

    T-Berd laying another egg against Cilic. Still not over but I don't see Cilic folding up today.

    And the birdman ends my US Open run.

    Thanks organisers! Always fun to take part in SDL tournaments.

    If Federer goes down, romeo will be the only one to survive the carnage. Shades of last year's Paris Masters.

    It wd be amazing if he cd win it. I'm not so keen on Cilic's style of play, but also wdnt mind him winning. Basically, it wd be refreshing to have a different face in the winners circle.

    I have been careful to save Cilic for the finals. Looks like it just may pay off for me. But that bum Djokovic has to win for me first.

    If Cilic gets this Grand Slam win I say we switch him off the PHAYOR list and put The Djoker on top.

    Agreed?
