SUICIDE AUSTRALIA! CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS!

We're down to five now. Good luck everybody! Get to the finals!

SUICIDE AUSTRALIA: DAY EIGHT 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.

Re: SUICIDE AUSTRALIA! DAY EIGHT PICKS!

I still survive

Thanks for the fight back, Nikolay

Down to three now

Just a question, because this is just my first time playing this game:
Do we have to pick a right winner up to the final day to win this, or as long as you're the last survivor, you won

And how much vcash is the reward?

Re: SUICIDE AUSTRALIA! DAY EIGHT PICKS!

Also, for QF matches:

Do we still pick by order of play daily or just one player for QF?

Pick the right winner up to the final day, i.e. the champion.

how much vcash depends on how many pick the champion.

Re: SUICIDE AUSTRALIA! DAY EIGHT PICKS!

If you've looked at the draw the last few rounds and looked further ahead and do some basic guesses, then you should be fine and you should be able to land Federer in the final. I was on my way to doing that until that fart from spain lost.

Re: SUICIDE AUSTRALIA! DAY EIGHT PICKS!

If the semi's are spread over 2 days (which I think they are ) we'll only have to pick one, right? Otherwise you can't win.

It will be hard if we have to pick per day instead of per round from QF.

Hence, if we start to pick per round from QF, my pick for QF matches will be:

NICOLAS KIEFER (GER) I just can't go against him, even though Sebastien is tough to beat, I will feel so bad if I go against Kiwi
