Hello everyone and welcome to Suicide Tennis
The game is very easy, enjoyable and will take nothing from your free time. 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). Once you pick someone, you cannot choose them again for the rest of the tournament. So, you don't want to waste a pick on Federer or Nadal to win in early round matches.(NOTE: Shanghai is the only tournament in the Suicide Tennis calendar where you are able to choose TWOplayers TWICE, because of the Round Robin format of the tourney)
. If you forgot to post your choice of the day, if you are sick or unable to reach a computer, it will be treated as a wrong pick, and you will be out of the tournament. As well, your pick must be chosen before the pick's match has commenced, otherwise it will be considered a wrong pick, and thus you will again, be out of the tournament.
Only in the case of a walkover, or a withdrawal, 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 occurence of a walkover or withdrawal, as stated above. Retirements do count as completed matches.
Your picks have to look like this:
Day 4: Marcos Baghdatis
back up: Fernando Gonzalez
If it is not clearly identitified, then both picks will be declared invalid.
**you may not use a back-up pick - it depends on you
Every day you can find the order of play posted down here. Before posting picks, check if the match with your 'todays choice' haven't started yet - late pick will be treated as a wrong pick. If you want to cancel or change your pick quote the original post and add a new message to this thread (before the match including your pick started, of course).
The last survived player is the winner. If two or more players go to the final day and succeed they all are tournament-winners. If everybody fail during the week (weeks in Grand Slams) the player/s who are participating in the last day with predictions is/are the winner/s.
So, if you wish to participate, just write the word IN
in this thread before posting any picks. New players are ALWAYS
Day 8 : 750
Day 7 : 500
Day 6 : 350
Day 5 : 250
Day 4 : 150
Day 3 : 110
Day 2 : 70
Day 1 : 35
