Suicide Tennis - Hamburg 2014



Read the whole Suicide Tennis Rules and ask questions about them here.

1. Each day of play you must pick 1 winner playing an ATP main draw singles match. Of course, the player that you choose is playing one match scheduled to be played that day (as seen on the order of play).

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 Federer or Nadal to win in early round matches.

3. You must choose one player to win each day. If you forget, are sick, or are unable to 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 your pick for you.

4. Only in the case of a walkover or a withdrawal of your main pick or your main pick's opponent, each player is allowed to have a back-up pick, selected at the same time as their initial pick. That back-up pick will only be used in the occurrence of a walkover or withdrawal, as stated above. Retirements do count as completed matches.

Replacement picks must be identified like this:

Code:
Pick: Rafael Nadal
Back-Up Pick: Kenny de Schepper
You can put BU instead of Back-Up Pick if you want, in fact you can use any expression if your picks selection is accurate. 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 in 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 here for the concrete day!

7. Picks will be acceptable until before the start of the FIRST match each day.

8. The scoring system will be as follows:

Code:
Losing Pick on Day 1: 1
Losing Pick on Day 2: 10
Losing Pick on Day 3: 25
Losing Pick on Day 4: 50
Losing Pick on Day 5: 100
Losing Pick on Day 6: 180
Losing Pick on Day 7: 300
Winning the title: 500
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 format, points, etc. There's http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=210369 created for that.

IMPORTANT: If the board goes down as it has happened before or it goes very slow then send you should create a Pastebin link with your picks. You must submit your pick and save the Pastebin link until the board works again, then you should send me the link with your pick publishing it in this thread or via PM. I talked about Pastebin because I can see when the picks were submitted but if there is another popular website with a similar functionality I will accept them as well (after I check that it is impossible to modify the date when the picks where submitted).

Best wishes and good luck,

Ramon

Be careful of the edit bug error and quote my message if you see it very old and without a daily update after it was supposed to have one.

Statistics - Hamburg 2014
Overall Statistics

Day 2


Day 1

Average of the odds of the picked players: 85.27/58 = 1.470172
Number of players picking an underdog: 1 (Caio_Brasil)
Probability of succeed of the group of alive players: 1/1.470172 = 0.68019252169
Expected number of ST players to survive: 58*0.68019252169 = 39 players (35 players survived, so that is a fair approximation)
