Suicide Tennis - World Tour Finals

1. 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).

2. Once you pick someone, you cannot choose them again for the rest of the tournament. So, you don't want to waste your pick on Federer or Nadal to win in early round matches.

3. You must choose one player to win each day. If you forget, are sick, or are unable to reach a computer, it will be treated as a wrong pick, and you will be out of the tournament. You have to submit your own pick, no one else can submit your pick for you.

4. Only in the case of a walkover or a withdrawal of your main pick, 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 occurrence of a walkover or withdrawal, as stated above. Retirements do count as completed matches.

Replacement picks must be identified like this:
Back-Up Pick - Andy Roddick
Make it clear and try to do it all in one post!

5. No commitments are necessary! If you wish to participate, just post your Day 1 pick in the correct time. New players are ALWAYS welcome!

6. Once the order of play is released, it will be added IN THIS THREAD, right below, to facilitate your choices. Each day, this post will be updated with its respective order of play.

NOTE: You can't pick a player from a match scheduled for the previous day and postponed for the next due to rain or darkness! Choose only from the matches posted in the OOP here for the concrete day!

7. Picks will be acceptable until before the start of the FIRST match each day.

8. The scoring system will be as follows:

Winning pick on Day 1: 100
Winning pick on Day 2: 200
Winning pick on Day 3: 300
Winning pick on Day 4: 400
Winning pick on Day 5: 500
Winning pick on Day 6: 600
Winning pick on Day 7: 1000
Winning pick on Day 8: 1500


9. This thread is not made to complain about format, points, etc. There's Suicide Suggestions Thread created for that. :)

If the board goes down as it has happened before, send your picks on my e-mail: coolybri@gmx.de

Special Rules for Suicide WTF:

There will be 8 days of picking. You have to pick every day. Two players, used during the round robin format, can be picked again in semifinal and final, but only in SF and F.
Only Top 16 players from the year are eligible to play here. Those placed from 17th to 20th are alternates. They can pick for day 1, and if someone from Top 16 forgot to pick, they are replacing him/her/them.

If you have any suggestions how to improve the game we are always more than happy to hear them.
I agree that having two matches per day doesn't offer much chance for variations.

You can't.
It's the same as in regular suicide. If you pick a loser, you are out.
And you already picked Djokovic, so you can't pick him again (only exception: you reach day 7, you can pick players a second time in SF and F).

:confused: It's the same as any other suicide tournament. If your player loses you're out and you can't pick the same player twice during the Group stage. However, once you get to the SF and F stage you can pick a player you've previously picked as otherwise you wouldn't have any options left.

hmm, I must be more stupid than the rest of you guys since I'm the only one having not understood. I wanted to ask the question on Day 1 but assumed I had got that right. A shame I ruin my Masters by not understanding a sentence that, you have to agree Mr.Manager, can be tricky to understand.
