In spite of a change of owners, Suicide Tennis stays the same. Remember, every choice, whether good or bad, can be deadly...

Suicide Forest Hills


1. Each day of play, you must pick 1 winner playing a WTA main draw singles match. 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 Clijsters or Sharapova to win in early round matches.

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. Only 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 - Daniela Hantuchova

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


5. If you wish to participate, just write the word IN in this thread. New players are ALWAYS welcome!

6. Once the order of play with be released, it will be added IN THIS THREAD to facilitate your choices. Each day, this post will be updated with its respective order of play.

7. NO seeds for this tournament.

gocanadago, mrserenawilliams, Kim's_fan_4ever and njtennis11 you commit all also to New Haven and first in this Tournament.

Every player can partecipate in only 1 Tournament in a Week, so you are all playing only in New Haven.

Day 1 recap

The day of 9 deaths

Day one of Forest Hills took out 9 of the competitors. The day started off very badly when an almost sure bet of Schruff to win match 1 went out do to retirement. 5 players were dead after one match. Next up was the Shaughnessy match and in a tight nail biting match, Meg pulled it out in the end preventing 4 people from offing themselves. The last match of the day saw Sofia the most inconsistent player on the tour, lose once again and with it took out another 3 players. One player was obliviously so overwhelmed by the game killed himself before the game even began without making a pick for day one. In a game that started with 13, we are now down to 4.

I will do the math when i get home from work, but i think you are right, and i think there might have been just enough people to give you the extra points.

Trust me i spent like an hour reading the rules yesterday. It doesn't make sense to me either, so im going to bring it up, and get this rule fixed.

First of all, only correct picks are used for the tiebreak.

That's ridiculous!
Those who lost in 2 sets are ranked ahead of those who lost in 3!

The order for the tiebreak:

1. Who "wins" the week.
2. Who's picks lost the least games.
3. Who's picks lost the least sets.
4. Who picked first for the final.

This includes correct picks only - ie, only Shaughnessy for all four of you. Obviously, you are all tied with the pick, total games lost an total sets lost. Incorrect picks are ignored.

Thats a dumb rule of who posts it first. :rolleyes: Just because I was asleep I am punished. Maybe I should just stay on WTAWorld all night long :rolleyes:

Well, it's only used in extreme cases -- can you think of a better solution if everything else is equal (Same pick, same total games lost, same total sets lost)? It's very, very rare something like this happens.

As far as 416_man told me, what i did was correct and he is the owner of this game. You are suppost to count lost games even when your pick is wrong.
