#212 Suicide Tennis: Guangzhou| Congratulations to lover_of_myskina!!




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



Suicide Tennis - Guangzhou 2009

2008 Final: Rena&Lindz (Chn) def. Andiyan (NED)
2007 Final: Tennace (Cze) def. Meelis (Est)
2006 Final: watchdogfish (GBR) def. ???





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 Jelena Jankovic or Maria Sharapova in the early rounds. Conversely, you don't want to make a pick at all on Nicole Vaidisova. Has-beens are so 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. 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 - Kim Clijsters

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


5. The seeds will be based on the latest rankings available. In this International tournament, no byes are granted.


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!

2009 Susicide Tennis Awards


It's that time of year again... It is coming up to the end of the season and FINALLY we get to acknowledge the hard work of both the organisers and players of Suicide Tennis for 2009.

To get the awards up and running I need input from all the people who have participated in Suicide Tennis this year. We need to come up with a list of awards and names for the awards ( the more non award ceremony-ish the better).

I have started a thread in the Game section of the forum and welcome any idea about either awards, names or nominees. All input is welcome...

The 2009 Suicide Award thread link is: http://www.tennisforum.com/showthrea...6#post16464196

Thank you all in advance and when it comes time to vote please do...

Sam Stosur Casey Dellacqua Jamila Gajdosova Jelena Dokic Ash Barty
Suicide Tennis
Runner Up: Strasbourg (09), Pattaya Open (07)
Semi/Quarter Finalist: YEC (09), Linz (07)/ Australian Open (09), Wimbledon (09)
