Suicide Tennis Indian Wells

Suicide Tennis
Indian Wells




1. Each day of play you must pick 1 winner playing an ATP main draw singles match. Of course, the player that you choose is playing one match scheduled to be played that day (as seen on the order of play).

2. Once you pick someone, you cannot choose them again for the rest of the tournament. So, you don't want to waste your pick on Federer or Nadal to win in early round matches.

3. You must choose one player to win each day. If you forget, are sick, or are unable to reach a computer, it will be treated as a wrong pick, and you will be out of the tournament. You have to submit your own pick, no one else can submit your pick for you.

4. Only in the case of a walkover or a withdrawal of your main pick, each player is allowed to have a back-up pick, selected at the same time as their initial pick. That back-up pick will only be used in the occurrence of a walkover or withdrawal, as stated above. Retirements do count as completed matches.

Replacement picks must be identified like this:
Back-Up Pick - Andy Roddick
Make it clear and try to do it all in one post!

5. No commitments are necessary! If you wish to participate, just post your Day 1 pick in the correct time. New players are ALWAYS welcome!

6. Once the order of play is released, it will be added IN THIS THREAD, right below, to facilitate your choices. Each day, this post will be updated with its respective order of play.

NOTE: You can't pick a player from a match scheduled for the previous day and postponed for the next due to rain or darkness! Choose only from the matches posted in the OOP here for the concrete day!

7. Picks will be acceptable until before the start of the FIRST match each day.

8. The scoring system will be as follows:

Losing on Day 1: 1
Losing on Day 2: 10
Losing on Day 3: 25
Losing on Day 4: 60
Losing on Day 5: 100
Losing on Day 6: 170
Losing on Day 7: 250
Losing on Day 8: 350
Losing on Day 9: 500
Losing on Day 10: 700
Winning the title: 1000

9. This thread is not made to complain about format, points, etc. There's Suicide Suggestions Thread created for that.

If the board goes down as it has happened before, send your picks on my e-mail: reste.encore@gmail.com

Re: Suicide Tennis Indian Wells

OK, so I didn't intend to manage IW, but as nobody seemed to do that and actually open the thread, I did it. I'm no newbie to that, but I have some work to be done these weeks, so I can't promise it will be greatly managed. I'll try my best, but don't expect I'll be here 24/7, so just bear with me and try not to make problems. Read carefully the rules so we don't have to cope with complains about deadline and such.

Thanks a lot and enjoy the game!

His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.
