Suicide Tennis - Australian Open 2023


1. Each day of play, you must pick 1 winner playing an ATP main draw singles match. The player you choose must be on the tournament OOP for that day.

2. Once you pick someone, you cannot choose them again for the rest of the tournament. So, you don't want to waste your pick on the tournament favorites to win in early-round matches.

3. You must choose one player to win each day. If you forget or cannot reach a computer, it will be treated as a wrong pick, and you will be out of the tournament. You have to submit your own pick, no one else can submit a pick on your behalf.

4. Each Player shall submit a back-up pick at the same time they submit your main pick. This pick will only be used in the case of a walkover or withdrawal of your main pick, a walkover from your main pick's opponent, or a Lucky Loser replacing your main pick's opponent.

Retirements do count as completed matches. If 1 point is played, the match will be considered in play and your pick is valid.

Replacement picks must be identified like this:
Back-Up Pick - Goffin
Make it clear, and try to do it all in one post!

5. No commitments are necessary! If you wish to participate, just post your Day 1 pick at the correct time. New players are ALWAYS welcome!

6. Once the order of play is released, it will be added IN THIS THREAD, right below, to facilitate your choices. Each day, this post will be updated with its respective order of play.

NOTE: You can't pick a player from a match scheduled for the previous day and postponed for the next due to rain or darkness! Choose only from the matches posted in the OOP for the concrete day!

7. Picks will be accepted until BEFORE the start of the FIRST match each day.

8. The scoring system will be as follows:

Losing Pick on Day 1: 1
Losing Pick on Day 2: 15
Losing Pick on Day 3: 35
Losing Pick on Day 4: 85
Losing Pick on Day 5: 140
Losing Pick on Day 6: 240
Losing Pick on Day 7: 350
Losing Pick on Day 8: 520
Losing Pick on Day 9: 710
Losing Pick on Day 10: 960
Losing Pick on Day 11: 1250
Losing Pick on Day 12: 1600
Winning the Title: 2000

9. Never edit your pick. If you change your mind, you must first "quote" your original pick in a new post and enter your new pick there.

10. This thread is not made to complain about the format, points, etc. There's a Suicide Suggestions Thread created for that.

Get excited for the first Grand Slam of 2023!

Day 1 is on Monday, January 16. Let me know if you see any errors in the charts, and I will correct them as soon as possible.

I will do my best to remind people to make their picks. What I hate seeing the most is a 'No Pick' during a Major!

I'm excited to manage this tournament for the 7th year in a row! Good luck! Let's get some titlists, 2017-style! It's been too long!

3rd match aussie site says svrcina as munar opponent (you listed moreno de alboran)

otte opponent listed as shang '(same as hong?)

hanfmann opponent listed as hiijkata (same as hobart?)

so i assume we can take these matches
Thank you, Joe, for the heads-up on the match corrections. The list has been edited to show the proper opponents. Yes, all matches can be chosen from.

The list I pulled from, I guess, was not up-to-date on the draw, my apologies for that! I will ensure to pull all names from the official AO site next time for OOPs.
