Suicide Tennis - Paris Open Gaz de France - Make Day 6 Picks



Remember, every choice, whether good or bad, can be deadly...


Suicide Paris 2008

2007 Final:( Vicmatibla (ESP) def. smokovec(ITA); Day 7 Pick over Day 6 Pick Invalid )


1. Each day of play, you must pick 1 winner playing a WTA main draw singles match. (READ: DO NOT PICK A MATCH FROM THE QUALIFYING DRAW!). 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 a pick on Justine Henin or Svetlana Kuznetsova in the early rounds. Conversely, you don't want to make a pick at all on Anna-Lena Groenefeld. Has-beens are not hot.

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. As well, your pick must be chosen before the pick's match has commenced, otherwise it will be considered a wrong pick, and thus you will again, be out of the tournament.

4. Only in the case of a walkover, or a withdrawal, 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 occurence of a walkover or withdrawal, as stated above. Retirements do count as completed matches.

Replacement picks must be identitified like this:

BACK-UP PICK - JUSTINE HENIN

If it is not clearly identitified, then both picks will be declared invalid.


5. The seeds will be based on the last rankings. The top 8 ranked players to commit will be given a bye and not required to make a pick on Day 01.

6. To sign up, please type the word "In". Variations are more than acceptable. Your sign up will be confirmed when you post your picks on the first day of main draw play, and so it is not necessarily a "must" to sign in.

7. Please be advised that you may only play ONE Suicide Tennis tournament per week. If you play in multiple tournaments per week, you will be given a score of ZERO for the week to go into your ranking.

8. Once you've post your pick it's final, you CAN'T change them.
So don't edit or delete your post or else you will be DISQUALIFIED!

Re: Suicide Tennis - Paris Open Gaz de France!

Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Art Class


Bonjour!
Welcome, Suicide players to the 1st annual WTA Tour art class. In an attempt to immortalize the tours star players (none of which are playing this week), the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour has paid artists to recreate some classic art pieces, featuring the 'prettiest' and most 'charming' players on tour.

Dimanche
After an exciting week of tennis, the Open Gaz de France has finished for another year. The battles are finished, the injuries were minimal, and Anna Chakvetadze emerged victorious. To commemorate her victory, Ekin, our Suicide Paris winner, has given us this wonderful reproduction of the La Gioconda, or the Mona Lisa for all you non-artsy types . Notice the wry smirk on Chaky's face, and the subtle product placement of the trophy in the foreground.


Vendredi
Today's art class is a step away from the 'masterpieces' of Titian, Caravaggio et al, and a step towards the art of the people...folk art! Today's painting is brought to you by a duo of highly ranked Canadians, Drake1980 and star. With her face evoking the sadness of today's defeat, Daniela Hantuchova was the model for our gallery's masterpiece. Proving that creative talent and the ability to play Suicide Tennis are not correlated, I give you Drake1980 and star's mix of beauty and hobo-chic: The Sad Clown. C'est tragique, n'est-ce pas?


Jeudi
For Thursday's art class, we delve back into history...allllll the way back to the Gaz de France player party that happened last Saturday. The fun and excitement of the festivities were recreated by Tim_danielafan6 , in this thoughtful reworking of Titian's Bacchus and Ariadne. Look into the photo and you'll see six of our quarter-finalists reveling in carnival of highly staged photos fun and drunken excitement. Look as the spritely Anna C. pouts in the foreground, while Kateryna and Virginie are forced into the background slightly more camera shy. And at THIS Sony Ericsson WTATour party, Bacchus doesn't just throw grapes, he throws the newest model of Sony Ericsson cellphone! All the fun and debauchery of being a WTA Tour player is captured here in Tim_danielafan6's Bacchus and Amelie and Anna and Marion and Daniela and the Others


Mercredi
Today's installment of "WTA Classe des Beaux Arts" is brought to you by the S.S. Dementieva, and painted by our very own LudwigDvorak! In order to immortalize the "Queen of the Serve", the SS Dementieva has commisioned this beautiful reproduction of Botticelli's Birth of Venus. Notice the intricate details of the clam shell, raising out of the Volga River, and the flawless skin of our goddess. Art critics like pierce0415 praise the work as being "better than the original", while SloKid proclaims the masterpiece to be "stunningly delusional fantstic in all respects". I give you LudwigDvorak's The Birth of Lena, proudly brought to you by the SS Dementieva (AFR)


Mardi Gras
Allo mes amis! Today's art lesson features one of the up-and-coming players on tour: Agnes Szavay. She played so very well at the end of 2007, and so very poorly at the beginning of 2008, but she's won a match here in Paris, and I need her to win another tomorrow, dammit! So, in hopes of good karma, here is my take on Vermeer's Girl With a Pearl Earring, Dementieva_Dude's Girl with the High ForeheadSzavay with a Pearl Earring


MONDAY
Monday's masterpiece is brought to you by ATH04. Not one to bow to peer-pressure, ATH04 went against the trend (and common sense) and picked Eleni Daniilidou to upset Vika Azarenka. I inspired by the bloody Suicides of many players, ATH04 reworked the Caravaggio piece Salome Receives the Head of John the Baptiste in the WTA classic Eleni Delivers the Head of Vika.

PREVIEW
First up is this beautiful reworking of Manet's Olympia, featuring last year's winner, Nadia Petrova. Notice the beautiful body and the bright white sheets in the foreground, and the pained look on her face, representing yet another mid-match retirement injury. I give to you, In The Zone's Nadia
