Option 2 for race seems fair to me.

His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

Even though I'm someone who plays most weeks and would be better off under option 2 I think we should stick with option 1 as that seems fairer to me

Default Re: Suicide Tennis - Suggestions For 2010

yes stick with sunday starts
often the sunday is just a mickey mouse two or three or four matches.
its rather limiting to start of that tough on the first day.
please also make it clear how one has to pick in the final rounds of the grand slam tournaments.
the tournaments are fiddling with the shedule which makes it impossible almost to pick every day at the end of the tournement.
eg. there should always only be one pick required for alll semi- finals even though they are on separate days.
how does it work with the quarters? they are splitting those up on some tournaments as well gets bit tough. it becomes more luck than anything

I prefer option one.
It rewards quality a little over quantity.
also it allows players that are not total geeks playing every week to be in the mix.
its natural to miss a few one should not be penalized for that.

So far 6-4, so the race most likely to stay rankings-like.

Semifinals are always one day, that's the only way possible.
Quarters are the way they are in real tournaments, so one day in all but in 3 Slams - AO, RG & USO. It is a lot harder to survive there, but it's a slam after all, and a lot of points to gain. We could make it one day, but if it's only in order to make it less tough, I don't think that's good enough reason?

In an ideal world, I imagine Suicide game format PAW alike - all the ATP tournaments are held, but a player chooses only one per week where he participates, rather than FITD alike, where you can play them all but only the best result counts.

Now back to reality, suicide tournament gets the manager 48 hours before the very start, that's like the average time. It's usually someone stepping up in the last minute in order to save the game. Maybe there are one or two weeks in a season where there's more volunteers, but in my opinion, it should be either every single tournament in the calendar or exactly one every week, and not to let it depend on the week.

I hope the players would leave their thoughts on the subject. If we had multiple tournaments in a week, and a rule that you can play only one of them, it would reduce the number of players in a tournament (that is the work for the person who runs it) and maybe more players would sign up to manage.


edit: I put in bold the answer to your question, TBellucci.
