Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

Rule question:

if someone picks a match that isn't played, and then wants to change it, is that allowed? It says 'no changing your mind' so I've assumed it isn't...

See this post and further discussion.

but somehow I can't help from hoping
to find someone to talk to
who likes the way I am
who when he sees me wants to again

I think the answer is "No". If player made his pick he can't change this pick.

Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

You can't change picks. If you choose a player who won't play then you can pick another one.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

Just want to make sure that in Day 7, No picks mean you can't pick anyone and Invalid means you pick the wrong winner??

Second question is we use the +?? games to determine the winner, right??

Wozniacki Kvitova Pironkova Larsson Mladenovic

Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

If we are changing rules (and keeping byes), we could at least change the rule regarding winning the title, in case of tie:

1. The set win-loss differential, followed by the game win-loss differential (instead of no of games lost, which IMO makes no sense - a 6-7 loss is worse than a 0-6 loss? )

2. In case of byes, start considering the games/sets lost from the second round onwards. Else its ridiculously unfair for a person to lose out on the title just cos someone had a first round bye. I say this despite being ranked 4 and hence on the favourable side of the byes rule, cos a first round bye deciding the eventual winner is just contrary to logic, IMO

Re: Suicide Tennis | Rules |

And a rule question (I asked this before too, but did not get a reply, so am asking again):

OOP (first round): A vs B, C vs D .

I pick A, back up C.
B withdraws and is replaced by LL.
Since I had picked A, will my result be decided by the A vs LL match? Or is it that since B withdrew my back up pick will be used regardless of the A vs LL match, and my result decided by the C vs D match?

Thank you.
