Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

Nope. It's not personal because I'm confused about the rules too. Losing sets is always > than losing games (logical)
And I don't know what's going on with DAY 01 BYE/picks. If it counts, i can not see a reason having a BYE on DAY 01 as it will finally count...

Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

The Bye rule is because people were mad that it was too much of an advantage when it came to tie-breakers. That's why it counts now. The only advantage of having a Bye now is that you can't lose on Day 1.

Maybe it's logical but in last season losing games > losing sets

That's why they changed it.

To my understanding, the Bye Change is exactly as delicatecutter stated---> Seeded cannot be suicidal after 1st Day, but have to send their pick for solving TB situations, exactly as in Madrid.
In this case the set lost of the first match should be counted.

Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

For the purposes of Madrid, the overall result is right because 4 people are tied on sets lost (2) and then the next tie-breaker is games lost and come on lena still has lost the least amount of games.

Is this for sure the rule now that sets lots>games lost?

^ Yes.
I think DAVAJ MKirilenko must have a look and make the things more clear.

PM him. I did it but no answer back.

This is still what counts.
This post was not right of course. The rules are the same as from the start. So it's:


) In the event of a tie the following will occur

a) The player who had more picks during the tournament is deemed the winner.

b)If still in the event of a tie for first and second place, the player whose picks lost fewer games (ONLY in the round that they were selected), will be determined as having won.


c) In the event that they are still tied, the picks who lost fewer sets when they were chosen, including the round in which the pick had lost, will be tallied. The tally which includes fewer sets lost, will be deemed the winner.

d) In the event that they are still tied, the player who posted their pciks earlier on the final day (the final day that they were both still posting choices) will be declared the winner.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

Hi, Just wondering if it was okay to play from next week? I have just run a version of this game on a different forum and really enjoyed it. Wanted to play more regularly so joined this forum! I see some games say you need to be a member for two months and have 100 posts etc. Does this apply for Suicide tennis??

Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

I know it has been discussed beforehand but I was managing Hobart this week and there was a 3way tie for first with the only differing picks being on day 2. People lost (games/sets) 9/0, 7/1, 7/0... Just imagine for a second that their third score (7/0) hadn't played, then under current rules the player with score 7/1 would have been champion...

I honestly think this rule or sets>games needs to be changed as wining in straights 7/6 7/6 should still be better then winning 4/6 6/0 6/0...

Also im sure that everyone knows how to calculate percentages which is why i think that it shouldnt be number of games lost, but % of games won... that way losing 7/6 (46%) is better then losing 0/6 (0%)... whereas under current rules, it isn't

EDIT: This is how it is done in both WTA and ATP season ending championships, andto a lesser extent, the hopman cup and Adalaid a couple of years ago when the ATP trialed the RR format for a weekly tournament

Yeah, I agree with Wedgie about percentages. Seems fairer.

Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

Hey! In Suicide Tennis Auckland remains only one player. In Day 5, he picked Flipkens but he picked Flipkens before in Day 3. He is disqualified or he can change his pick?

Good luck in 2016 to:
Monica Puig
Angelique Kerber
Timea Bacsinszky
Nicole Gibbs
Miharu Imanishi
Jelena Ostapenko
