Round of 16: Wawrinka
Round of 16: Kei Nishikori
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.
It paid off! Congrats.
Congrats. You should have a good shot at winning now
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"
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:
A lot of us counting on Berdych tomorrow...
QF Pick: Stan 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.
Quarter Final: Wawrinka
Good change. happy for both of you. Good luck
US OPEN 2014 - QUARTERFINALS

Back up- Federer
QF: R Federer
Live by Nishikori, die by Nishikori. QF run for my first slam, not bad GL to all still left.
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.
I should have gone with his pick again :twisted:
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.
A lot of us are out now
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.
Nishikori looking like the call of the tournament!
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.
SF: N Djokovic
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.
No winners at the 2014 USO with Special K taking out Nole.
The top 8 stays the same in the race though dcdoorknob moves up from 13 to 9 which slides Big Dangerous from 9 to 10.
Changes in the rankings: ark28 moves up from 4 to 3, CDNguy87 drops from 3 to 4, romeo8880 moves up 9 to 7, Backspin1183 drops from 7 to 8, and Seth drops from 8 to 9.
Thank you for participating - the next events will be the Asia 500s in Tokyo and Beijing on Sept 29.
You were being sarcastic, right? I only ask because today really confused me.
yes sir. thanks for helping to run this fun contest as always!
