Not too shabby. We've lost only 7 this time. Usually by mid-week, we are down to three. :lol:

SUICIDE TMS MADRID: DAY FOUR PICKS!

How to play Suicide Madrid:

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 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.

Mariano! :bigcry:
I wanted to pick Stepanek first, but it was boring since everybody had picked him, so I decided to make this stupid coin tossing and I had a pretty bad feeling after Stepanek's win...

Thanks again for hosting the game, Tangy, and good luck for the rest of the tournament! :wavey:
