Well, I might do the Australian Open, if nobody else can do it. I'm not so experienced and you shouldn't expect too much, but I will do my best!

as i know the usual practise is only one tournament per week. as there are ATP tournaments i don't think we have to play challengers. we don't have a lot of managers, too.

Re: Suicide Tennis Managers Thread 2009

Hey can somebody confirm for me, because I'm a little sleep deprived, but it looks like Sydney starts on a sunday & ends on saturday, so from what I understand:

1. nobody needs to make a sunday pick (first pick is for Monday OOP); and
2. use these points:

Winning pick on Day 1: 5 points
Winning pick on Day 2: 20 points
Winning pick on Day 3: 45 points
Winning pick on Day 4: 90 points
Winning pick on Day 5: 150 points
Winning pick on Day 6: 250 points

Thanks!

Are you sure for AO ?

btw, i'll take Johannesburg. also, new tournaments are available at post #1

About the points: I've made all possible versions at post #3. We have to decide about the Slams, as eljab used different days for two Slams last year (Wimbledon with 10 days, US Open with 12 days).

well we can't appply same points rules for the differents slam.
Wimbledon is special and have only 10 days : no match on sunday and male/female days after that.
I made a mistake last year with RG i think (beginning on sunday as Suicide always begin on monday)

So it must be 12 days for grand slam i think (except Wimbledon) ?

monday to sunday : 7 days
monday, tuesday and wednesday : +3
Semi final : +1 (on friday or on thursday and friday, doesn't matter)
final : +1

Suicide = ??
FITD = NC titles 2008 : 4 / 2009 : 1
PAW : = NC
DTT single : NC; double : NC
TT "you want a bye in 1st round ? Play eljab !" (25 lost in 1st round on 37 challengers played)
Single : NC CH (22/38) ATP [23/16] / 2009 : (0/2)[2/3]
no title, no final
Double : NC (44/35) [14/16] / 2009 : (2/2)[3/3]
W Finals : 5 /Titles : 2 CH Knoxville 07 (with Colt th magnific); CH Besancon 08 (With Sol "Haute" Apollo)

Re: Suicide Tennis Managers Thread 2009

Hey can Filipo or somebody help me?

when I set up the Sydney thread I posted warnings that I would not accept any picks posted after 11 am Sydney time, I had a link to a time zone clock, and in the thread I did a countdown to the deadline, needless to say vamos israel posted her picks at 11:06 and now wants me to make an exception for her.

I know none of the men's MD matches started at that time (they didn't start for a while after that), so if other people think I should accept the pick I will but I don't really think it's fair to:

(a) the 65 other people managed to submit their picks before the deadline; and
(b) any other people who might have been a few minutes late but didn't post their picks because they actually took all my warnings seriously.

All picks must be posted by 11:00 am Sydney time.

Re: Suicide Tennis Managers Thread 2009

Yes, yor are right about your arguments, but Suicide doesn't have the new TT rule. We should accept picks until first point is played. So i think you have to accept vamos israel's pick.

You/We have this in every thread's post #1
