SUICIDE TMS MADRID: DAY FIVE PICKS!

REMINDERS:

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.
Here's a tool to help you figure out time zones (Madrid) (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/)
Good luck :banana:



Matches begin at 2:00pm local (Madrid) time. You have until then to make your pick.

keqtqiadv

My pic is David Nalbandian. But I don't think it's possible... :sad:
I need to read the rules better...

keqtqiadv
10-21-2005, 04:39 PM
LOL. Ljubo going down. Down down down. :banana:

It's not over yet Mikey, Gonzo still has time to find a way to screw the match up. ;)

ps - why didn't keqtqiadv get his pick in? :awww: I hope he's ok. He had a great chance of winning this thing but now he won't :sobbing:

I'm here! I couldn't come before.

Next time, please post the OOP earlier :angel: . I was here when it was released...

keqtqiadv
10-21-2005, 05:31 PM
See Escude? Ivan won. You're saved. Thanks to me. :angel: :woohoo:

keqtqiadv, you named your pick way too late. :awww:

I've said this in the FAQ but I'll say it again here: participants are free to PM me their picks for the next day's matches without having to wait for me to post the complete OOP.

:p Sorry, my mistake... My strategy was to choose Robby on Saturday and Ivan on Sunday, or vice-versa, but it's OK. If it occurs, I will get angry, but what can I do... Anyway, it gives me the opportunity to place all my mind in Karlovic's support :) !!!! Go Ivo!!

If Ginepri and Ljubicic go to final, only Lee has possibilities to win this.

warmy

I expected an easy win for Nadal over Stepanek. It does worry me some that their match was so close. Hmmmm...what will happen with Nalbandian/Karlovic? This is getting trickier!

Corey Feldman
10-21-2005, 09:29 PM
So far today nobody's lost their head. Whee! :yippee:
Boooo!! :ras:
hurry up and lose everyone else, i dont wanna share that prize pot on sunday :(

I need Karlovic to perform a miracle like Ljubicic :awww:

It was a greatly brave pick Lee, i admire that style :yeah:

Thank you :hatoff: That's why it's called suicide tennis ;) And I was feeling really suicidal yesterday. :p

Good Luck all the remaining guys/gals here.

And looks to me Escude has the best chance with only 3 picks in SF and Ljubicic is likely to lose to Nalbandian tomorrow.

Corey Feldman
10-21-2005, 11:05 PM
Watch me choke it away :p
and again, well done on your greatly positive thinking suicidal attitude! ;)
