#169. The Year-End Suicide Championships™. The Circus Is Complete!

The Year-End Suicide Championships



2006 Final: (8)LUXXXAS(POL) def. (1)SpikeyAidanM(AUS);
Day 05 Invalid Over Day 05 Invalid
2007 Final: (7)cypher_88(ROU) def. (7)NyCPsU(USA);
Day 04 Invalid Over Day 04 Invalid


Guidelines for Death.


1. You know the rules. Or else, you would not have made it this far.

2. For Doha, the rules will be slightly different than our conventional Suicide murderous tournaments. For the four days of round robin play, you can pick ANY player you wish -- but only once during this four day period -- like any other tournament. However, on SEMIFINAL day, your picks will be RESET and you may pick any of the 4 remaining players; even if you did or did not choose them previously.

For example, if your 4 days read like this: ( Jankovic, S.Williams, V.Williams, Ivanovic ), on Semifinal day, you may choose any remaining competitor, including Jankovic, Serena, Venus, and Ivanovic. If your pick wins on SF day, you advance to the final where you would choose the other person available.

Easy, right? Try and make it out of round robin play first.

3. All must bow and praise In The Zone and Britney's album CIRCUS which comes out on December 2nd.

4. If for some reason one or even two of the 8 entrants do not enter on Tuesday, the alternates, which will be designated, will play in their place. If an alternate # 1 is not available, alternate # 2 will be used. # 9 and # 10 in the race will be used as alternates # 1 and # 2.

Re: Suicide Tennis. The YEC. Our Return to Doha. One Final Kill. Play Begins Tues

Welcome to the Circus, the Ring of Suicide!


Now, now Drake. You clearly are not the womanizer you thought you were.

Day 01 Recap.

The field in Doha progressed on to Day 02 relatively easily as Venus and Jelena won their openers in straight sets.

But my my, Drake1980, did you really think suiciding Sveta was smart? Yes, the name of the game is Suicide but you're not supposed to WANT to die. Farewell on Day 01. Drake1980 was unable to put out the fire and extinguish the Circus' flame.

On Day 02, the Circus continues with our tamed beasts making their debuts. Will the Elephant be able to beat the crying beast? Will the speedy giraffe beat the pretty, meaningless butterfly?

The fight for # 1 is still alive! As is the fight for the final title of 2008. Good luck!



Welcome to the Circus, the Ring of Suicide!


Find your inner Womanizer and make it to Day 6 to win the YEC.

We have returned to Doha to finish off our suicidal year with our eight greatest performers! We've had a crazy ride but it is time to end the year with a proper Circus.

I'll be the Ringmaster this week and your #1 favorite! [Go #5, Maroon > White Group.]

Our Jelena Jankovic, Chris 84, whored his way through our Suicide calendar, playing his little heart out to ascend to # 1 despite the fact our Dinara Safina, MH0861 was consistent and found himself late in every tournament. The two fought over # 1 all week and in Doha, the year-end # 1 will be decided.

Serena and Venus Williams find themselves in Doha with their counterparts Drake1980 and slowvin. Drake1980 is fresh off a Canadian breather while slowvin snuck his way into the field.

vamos israel, our Dementieva, our perennial deeprunner with a solid run here and there, rounds out the top 4 while In The Zone, the sexiest, stylish best Suicide manager EVER comes in at # 5 making his YEC debut.

Joining ITZ with their debut are FORZA PENNETTA and aussie_fan who compiled solid years to easily make their way into the field.

With these freakshows assembling in e-Doha, the Circus will finally begin. Who will be the # 1 Womanizer in Doha? Who will be able to tame the beast and come out the true Ringmaster? Hopefully ITZ but who knows!
