SUICIDE AUSTRALIA: DAY FIVE PICKS!
How to play Suicide Tennis:
REMEMBER: Once you pick a player you cannot pick him again for the rest of the tournament.
- Go here to read the FAQ.
- You have until beginning of the day's match play to pick your player. Once matches have started, you cannot pick a player. Go here 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.
- No changing your mind! Once you've picked a player, it sticks.
- Please make your pick in a timely fashion. Game hostess reserves the right to disqualify a participant if she feels that the late pick rule is being abused.
- In order to avoid confusion, please name your pick by the player's last name. NO nicknames or first names. In the case where players share the same last name (e.g. Rochus) please use the player's first initial as well (e.g. C. Rochus).
- Here's a tool to help you figure out time zones (Melbourne)

- no stragglers allowed in after the first day of match play is completed.
- no doubles matches will be included in this game.
- Good luck
Matches begin at 11:00am local (Melbourne) time. You have until then to make your pick.
