Why You Should Play Suicide Tennis!

Why You Should Play Suicide Tennis

Read all the accolades, rants, raves, and commodations Suicide Tennis has received from enthusiastic MTF participants! More brilliant comments will be added just as soon as I come across them or make them up myself.

I love Suicide tennis. It makes me feel alive.

It’s 5am and I’m sitting at my computer stressing. Am I stressing about Andy playing a very tricky player his first match in a masters tournament he has the possibility of wining, but may blow because of nerves and/or poor preparation? Nope, not worried about that. How about the midterm I have in a few hours that I really haven’t studied for? Not really concerned. So what is presently causing me to pull tuffs of my precious golden tresses out? Tangy’s maddening and oh so appropriately named game, that what.

Day 4 is coming and my gut says to bet on Nalbandian. But how can I do that when he has a 0-1 record with Johansson? The lose came this year at Wimbledon, where Thomas was playing fantastically, but does that mean Thomas was on a hot streak or that Nalby is his bitch. Then again, Nalby was a finalist last year, so I can only imagine that this is a pretty positive tournament for him. And so far both of their indoor seasons have been luke warm, with Johansson doing just a bit better. I don’t know.


Must physically stop self from going over their head to head comparisons with half the ATP tour and categorizing them by patterns of play. Must go study.

I hate suicide tennis. It's getting where I want to kill myself!

Nice game (thank you very much for organizing it, tangerine, it's fun!), but I'd like to survive at least once.

i can't comment on whether this is a good game or not because i'm not in it long enough to find out

I have and I am telling you it's great.

I can't wait for the tournament where we can pick players who we have some sort of cinfidence of them winning their match. Picking these low life players is becoming a drag . Big name events should be really fun to play and hopefully we as a whole, just stop sucking so hard and adnavce a round or two.
