We didnt get to a conclusion and since I was the manager and thought this was the best method i applied it. But if none like it, ill just change it. Although the other system is absolutely crap.

Re: Suicide Tennis Masters Shangai (Top 16 Qualify only)

and if there are two players who doesnt win matches in the whole tournament? (high possibilities) There are no chances for a winner.

Re: Suicide Tennis Masters Shangai (Top 16 Qualify only)

It was just a i compromise better than only one pick. But of course I prefer the rules from last year.

That's exactly why there would be no one to reach the last day with your system

I liked Björki's compromise

Re: Suicide Tennis Masters Shangai (Top 16 Qualify only)

I have no idea how to play

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.

Re: Suicide Tennis Masters Shangai (Top 16 Qualify only)

Ok, will you all agree if 2 players can be picked twice? With that system if you get good picks everyone should be able to win.

Re: Suicide Tennis Masters Shangai (Top 16 Qualify only)

There will be 6 days of group play, right?
plus one SF day and one final day....
It's impossible "not to commit suicide" here...
