#0158 - Suicide Tennis - Guangzhou - Congrats to Rena&Lindz!



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


Suicide Guangzhou 2008


2007 Final:
Tennace (CZE) def. meelis13 (EST) (DAY06 W/PICK over DAY06)

2006 Final:
watchdogfish (GBR) def. ? (DAY04 over DAY03)


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. I don't know if you noticed, but noted tour mother Lindsay Davenport is finally playing singles here again and has a super good draw. Therefore, if you stupidly pick her on Day 01 or 02, you cannot pick her on Day 07 when she wins the title. Hence the point of Suicide.

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 - Virginie Razzano

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


5. This is a Tier III event and there will be no byes.

6. To sign up, please type the word "In". It is not mandatory to commit or enter before Day 01. If you do not post a Day 01 pick, you will not be listed on the entry list. Your entry is confirmed when your Day 01 pick is posted.

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 your pick is posted, that pick is final and may not be changed. Please make sure you are confident in your pick before posting it. If you edit your pick, your pick will be null and void and you will be out on that given day.
If you delete your pick, you are disqualified from the tournament.

Re: #0158 - Suicide Tennis - Guangzhou - Commit now!

Conclusion on the days:

Monday:
Suicide Guangzhou started with a major upset. The ranking based favourite Ekaterina Dzehalevich lost to the home crowd's favourite. This killed 3 people: Andreas, Adrian1992 and Poiree. Later on Ioana Raluca Olaru was about to kill the remaining 3 people, but she came back to win a tough three setter against Aniko Kapros.
Dor Y didn't pick and is out with 0 points.
This means 3 people will be able to pick on the 2nd day.

Tuesday:
It looked like a piece of cake when Stephanie Dubois had to play the Lucky Loser Xu from China - at least that was what all remaining people picked. But unfortunately Dubois lost in straight sets and killed the remaining 3 people - Rena&Lindz, Kielian and Andiyan.

Wednesday:

Thursday:

Friday:

Saturday:

Sunday:


Azarenka / Konjuh / Kostyuk
