SUICIDE AUSTRALIA! DAY SEVEN PICKS!

We're getting down to the wire now. Once we get to the quarterfinals, I may have to adjust the picks a bit. Instead of making picks per day we will have to make picks per round. I'm still trying to determine if the QFs and SFs will be played on the same day or not. Will keep you posted. Good luck for Day Seven!


SUICIDE AUSTRALIA: DAY SEVEN PICKS!



How to play Suicide Tennis:
  • Go here to read the FAQ.
  • You have until beginning of the day's match play to pick your player. Once matches have started, you cannot pick a player. Go here to see the GMT for when matches begin play.
  • Pick one player per day (not per round) to win; if he wins, you are still in the game, if he loses, you are out.
  • If you pick a player who retires during matchplay or suddenly withdraws before a match, you are out.
  • If you pick a player whose match is rescheduled for the next day, your original pick still stands.
  • No changing your mind! Once you've picked a player, it sticks.
  • Please make your pick in a timely fashion. Game hostess reserves the right to disqualify a participant if she feels that the late pick rule is being abused.
  • In order to avoid confusion, please name your pick by the player's last name. NO nicknames or first names. In the case where players share the same last name (e.g. Rochus) please use the player's first initial as well (e.g. C. Rochus).
  • Here's a tool to help you figure out time zones (Melbourne)
  • VCASH AWARD FOR WINNER(S)! Bank Of MTF is offering a vcash award to the lucky winner(s) of Suicide Australia. Multiple winners will split the prize.
  • in order to win this vcash pot, the winner(s) must have picked a player to win every day of the tournament; no sick/off days allowed.
  • no stragglers allowed in after the first day of match play is completed.
  • no doubles matches will be included in this game.
  • Good luck

REMEMBER: Once you pick a player you cannot pick him again for the rest of the tournament. Matches begin at 11:00am local (Melbourne) time. You have until then to make your pick.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: SUICIDE AUSTRALIA! DAY SEVEN PICKS!

I think you'll find that the Semi's will be played on the same day - The quarters will be played on 2 different days.

I'm thinking Mens Quarters on Tuesday
Mens Quarters on Wednesday
Mens Semi's on Friday

Re: SUICIDE AUSTRALIA! DAY SEVEN PICKS!

Looks like we may lose half the field unless Ferrer fights back hard.

More of the field will go tonight as some have tojo and some have ljubicic.
