SUICIDE TMS MADRID: DAY ONE PICKS!

How to play Suicide Madrid:

You don't have to sign up anywhere to play this game. Just show up and pick a winner.
Go here to read the FAQ (http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=2366171&postcount=1).
You have until beginning of match play to pick your player. Once the matches have started, you cannot pick a player. Go here (http://www.livescore.com/tennis.dll) 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.
REMEMBER: Once you pick a player you cannot pick him again for the rest of the tournament.
If you get to the SF or F of the tournament and find that the only picks remaining are players that you have already picked, then you are out.
No changing your mind! Once you've picked a player, it sticks.
To avoid confusion, when naming your pick please refer to him by his given last name, do not name him by his first name or nickname.
In the case of players who share the same last name, please include their first initial (i.e., O. Rochus, C. Rochus, etc.).
Here's a tool to help you figure out time zones (Madrid) (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/)
VCASH AWARD FOR WINNER(S)! Bank Of MTF is offering a vcash award to the lucky winner(s) of Suicide Madrid. 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 will be allowed in after the first day of match play is completed.
no doubles matches will be included in this game.
the complete draw for Madrid is attached below.
Good luck :banana:



Matches begin at 11:30am local (Madrid) time. You have until then to make your pick.

Btw, I think your Blake/Bryans/Roddick icon smilie thing is so adorable! Did you make that? :DI wish I could take credit for it. Someone gave me a link to it and I later found out it was originally on the Bryans' site, so I imagine someone from there made it for DC last month (when it popped up). It's so cute though, I love it :)

Yep, it's great. :D But it helps being the only tournament playing right now. ;)

I'm relieved to see Calleri make it through his match today though. With so many picking him, I thought for sure we'd lose 80% of our participants in the first day again. :lol:

By the way, for those who made their picks late today please get your next picks in before the day's match play begins (11:30am local time). If the late picks keep happening, you'll end up being disqualified from the game. :sad:

Thanks for understanding. :wavey:
If I make 2nd day round, I'll make my pick on time, sorry for being late today :o :D
