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

Suicide Seoul


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. The rankings will be used to decide the entry list. There are no byes.

SUICIDE BULLETIN
TOURNAMENT PREVIEW

Hello and welcome to Stop #2 on our ASIAN TOUR OF DEATH ! While Beijing was simply a smashing success, the fun just doesn't stop as we make our way to Seoul! And contrary to popular belief, Guangzhou IS NOT a stop on this elusive tour. This is MY TOUR, people, and I call the shots! SEOUL IT IS! :D

Anyways, we have a nice, tight-knit group of both seasoned Vets and newcomers! :D I liken Seoul to, say, a nice autumn evening in front of the fireplace with a cup of hot cinnamon tea and a good book! :D I do not want to be hussled in Luxy, NOT ME NOT NOW! :(

There were 8 of us signed up, and I thought, "SCORE! We can all carry the moniker of our respective seed in the real draw and that could be sorta fun!" and then someone else had to join, so yeah. SO WE WILL DO A TOP 8 + NEXT TO BE SEEDED KIND OF DEAL!

SEEDS!
(1) MH0861 [USA] aka MARTINA HINGIS! Director's Note: I don't have a big forehead
(2) Gavnich77 [GBR] aka MARIA KIRILENKO! There's the hot one in every crowd.
(3) Randriantastic! [AUS] aka MARION BARTOLI! I guess we know who's most likely to withdraw do to illness/injury/broken fingernail. :sad:
(4) Germanstar [GER] aka AI SUGIYAMA! Hopefully you won't be I. Suckiyama this week. :sad:
(5) Pszczelny [POL] aka VERA ZVONAREVA! No matter how much you cry, a death is a death!
(6) Jonas_84 [MEX] aka SOFIA ARVIDSSON! For once in my life, I'm almost at a loss for words on what to say. Except maybe this is the last person I'd want to be in the seed list.
(7) 6Myskina6 [RUS] aka GISELA DULKO! First you put the bitch smack on old Senior Citizens a few years ago in slams, will you bitch smack us this week? Just try it. Just TRY! :p
(8) star [CAN] aka LUCIE SAFAROVA! Oh, Lucifer. Struggles galore this year, it seems. I'm thinking you'll outlive her.

NEXT TO BE SEEDED!
Volcanic Tennis [CAN] aka CATALINA CASTANO! This doesn't bode well for you at all.

Alright, best of luck to all of you! If anyone enters after this, sorry for not including you, but that is what you get when you don't enter on a timely basis. :p

REMEMBER! THE ASIAN TOUR OF DEATH ! It's like the US Open Series, except instead of points and money, it's LIVES on the line!

Yeah, then we go into a "tiebreak"... I count up all the games lost by everyone's set of picks, and whomever has the least amount of games lost wins the title... we'll all get the same amount of ranking points for reaching the same day though, the breaker is just used to determine the "winner", "runner up" etc (in case you want to brag in your sig like *cough* some people ;) )

Congratulations! :D You've won Suicide Seoul... Jonas and I are out of picks (I'm just pleasantly suprirsed Eleni won so I can get more points!) :D I'll post the final rankings points table for the tournament tomorrow, because your score depends on whether Eleni wins or not. :hug:

For now... the tiebreak


01. (11) MH0861.......... (USA) (Laine, Sugiyama, Mirza, Ruano Pascual, Bartoli, Daniilidou) RUNNER UP

06. (95) Jonas_84........ (MEX) (Laine, Sugiyama, Mirza, Ruano Pascual, Bartoli, Daniilidou) SF

Since we made the same exact picks, it doesn't matter if we count games lost or sets lost. That means it depends on who posted their final pick first (I realize this is annoying and I think we're gonna change it next year), so I'm declared the Runner Up and Jonas is Semifinalist. Don't worry - we still get the same exact amount of points.

02. (24) Gavnich77....... (GBR) (Laine, Zvonareva, Morigami, Ruano Pascual, Mirza) [5, 3, 7, 7, 18 = 40]
07. (NR) 6Myskina6....... (RUS) (Laine, Suarez, Morigami, Sugiyama, Zvonareva) [5, 4, 7, 4, 13 = 33] SF
