Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

I have a question. How is it decided how many people get byes in a tournament? Is that at the manager's discretion? I know that Tier III and IV's don't have them but for other events I've seen anywhere from 8 up to like 32.

Depends on the # of seeds in the tournament. 56 draws or larger have 16 seeds. IW/Miami have 32. Slams have no byes. 32 draws have 8 byes.

Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

There's something I don't really understand about the rule of lost games:
With the current rules, losing in a tie break or 5-7 is worse than losing 0-6, and losing 0-6 is the same as losing 4-6. Isn't there a better way to calculate it, or?
For example differences in lost sets?

Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

i have a question...
how can a poster continue playing this game even though he/she was banned from the forum?
they are banned for a reason and to give them the privilege of playing a game of this forum doesn't sound right.

Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

I want to make a new rule.
Chris 84 was seeded in New Haven, but never post a pick.
The manager just gave him 0 points and let the rest the rest.

GoV&Rena made an invalid pick on day 1. Got 1 point. But was the 9th ranked player in the tournament.
I suggest for the next tournaments that the next one will get a bye when 1 of the seeds don't post a pick at day 2.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

That is what we have done in practice. I PMed GoV&Rena about it but he posted his Day 2 pick after the last match had started. So he could not post a Day 2 pick. So we had no choice.

Ok. But now we can also add it to the rules which are posted in the first post of every tournament.
It also means that GoV&Rena will get 0 points in the future. This time I gave 1 point. Cause the Kleybanova pick changes in Bye.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

It's time we update the rule about how to decide the winner.

Lost sets.
As 2nd, lost games. I think we better can change it into biggest +.
If a player wins 6-1 6-2. That player gets +9.
In this case the players who win by retirement won't get the advantage anymore. They get 0 games lost when the opponent retires at 0-3. Even worst if it happens in the first game.
If someone retires when she's 5-0 up and you choose the player who is 5-0 down, you get a -5, instead of 5 games lost. You're already lucky enough that that player didn't lose a set or even the match.
In this way we won't have problem anymore with 6-0 6-7 6-0 is worse than 6-0 0-6 6-0.

Good idea?

I like the new way to calculate games... its very similar to the calculating game won v lost percentage (but much easier) which I think is fairer then just games lost

I'm not sure how I feel about it. It's a bit more complicated. I like that retirements count in our game because that's the point of our game -- suicide, whether it benefits you or goes against you.

I'll hold out how I feel about it while more people comment.
