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

Suicide Year End Championships

1. This elite tournament is for the YEAR END TOP 8 RANKED PLAYERS ONLY. Two alternates, ranked 9th and 10th, have been designated to replace anyone who cannot play. YEAR END TOP 8 PLAYERS: If you wish to participate, just write the word IN in this thread to confirm your participation. If you cannot play, please let me know. THE DEADLINE FOR ENTERING THE TOURNAMENT IS MONDAY, NOVEMBER 6TH, 2006 AT 11:00PM EST.Two alternates (those ranked 9-10), will be notified via PM if space opens up for them.

2. For each day of Round Robin play, you must pick 1 winner playing a WTA YECs Round Robin match in either group. Of course, the player that you choose, is playing one match scheduled to be played that day (as seen on the order of play).

3. Once you pick someone during Round Robin play, you may not use them again during the Round Robin stage of the tournament. However, if you make it through to the Semifinals, picks reset and you may use any player you may have chosen one more time (or use any other player you didn't choose only once, like usual). For example, if your correct Round Robin picks were CLIJSTERS, HENIN-HARDENNE, PETROVA AND HINGIS, and CLIJSTERS AND HENIN-HARDENNE makes the semifinals, you MAY choose either one of them again once more during the either the semifinal or final rounds again. Obviously, if KUZNETSOVA makes the semifinals as well, you can choose her once for the remainder of the tournament as well.

4. You must make a correct pick for each day of the tournament. This tournament is single elimination -- once you make an incorrect pick, you are OUT.

5. 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.

6. 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.


Picks and Replacement picks must be identitified like this:
PICK - KIM CLIJSTERS
BACK-UP PICK - ELENA DEMENTIEVA

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


8. 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.

9. Players have been divided into colored groups, much like the real WTA. This is just for fun and formatting, and has no bearing on the game - picks may be made from ANY group.

10. Please post any questions in this thread. This tournament is much different than usual, so if you need any clarification, let me know.

TOURNAMENT PREVIEW


Helloooooo and welcome to the 1st Annual Year End Death Championships, coming to you from the lovely and quaint city of Ma-dead, Sprain! :D

A HUGE congratulations goes out to our Elite 8 - your consistant performances throughout the season were incredible. :worship: You truly out-witted, out-performed and out-lived the best of the rest, and truly deserve to be here. :yeah:

Without further adieu, let's take a closer look at the competition...

(1) SpikeyAidanM AUS
AKA Amelie Mauresmo (minus the slams and stuff) ;)
2006 Highlight: Deep runs at the French Open and the US Open
Insider Info: Aidan comes into the YECs ranked #1 - which is incredibly impressive, considering he has yet to win a title on tour. :o The rumor mill has been running wild with criticism that the #1 ranked player could get there without winning a title, but Aidan promises that he'll win one "really, really, really soon. Really."
Did you know? Aidan loves nothing more than long, romantic walks on the beach with his prized metal detector, always in search of the hidden treasures in life.

(2) timray BEL
AKA Maria Sharapova
2006 Highlight: Champion at Zurich
Insider Info: timray is fresh off an inspiring title run in Zurich, which capped off an incredible rise up the ranks in this latter part of the season. The question remains - how much does he left have in the tank for this grueling battle of skill, wits and endurance?
Did you know? timray means "I kill you all so back off bitches this title is mine" in French?

(3) Zauber CAN
AKA Justine Henin-Hardenne
2006 Highlight: 2 Championships, including Linz.
Insider Info: Zauber is another strong contender this year, living it up in Linz and winning the title in impressive fashion. Zauber has consistantly gone deep in tournaments all season long - he has the SECOND highest best 10th result of anyone (and believe me, if you say he has the first, Ceze will let ya know ;) ) - and this may be his big breakthrough. If he shows up.
Did you know? Zauber plans on organizing a march through Washington DC to protest the bye system in this game. Get your "Day 01: No bye, we all die!" banners, T-shirts and posters at all fine retailers now.

(4)DomenicDemaria AUS
AKA Svetlana Kuznetsova
2006 Highlight: Umm winning the French Open?? :worship:
Insider Info: Word on the street is that Australia's #2 player has one target, and one target only: "That Spikey kid" and the prestigeous title of #1 Australian! In an exclusive tell all note on www.DomenicDominates.com, all was revealed: "Ya mate I was like, Spikers, you go and play and I go and win slam and ya mate I was like you're losing the plot here! It's like if a Koala went to Sydney and asked for some Eucalyptus and all he got was a Kangaroo's pouch, ya know eh mate?" Umm, yeah. I know. Sure.
Did you know? Like Sveta, players and fans alike call Domenic "Igor" as well. :eek: :sad: JUST REMEMBER YOU TOO ARE A GRAND SLAM CHAMPION AND THEY ARE JUST JEALOUS!

(5)Ceze FRA
AKA Nadia Petrova (I'm really sorry!!)
2006 Highlight: Being the best ranking updater EVER! This game wouldn't be where it is without you. :) :hug: Oh, and dominating week in, week out, wasn't too shabby either.
Insider Info: Updating the rankings only get you so far... without a career title to his name (Sounds familiar!) and Grand Slam performances that leave a lot to be desired. But don't worry, if Nadia-No Title could eventually do it, there's always hope for you!
Did you know? Ceze went to school with Amelie Mauresmo and they were the best of friends! In fact, Amelie's recent love of bagels comes from the fact that Ceze would bring her some for breakfast every week at school back in the day! ;)

(6)Chris 84 CRO
AKA Elena Dementieva
2006 Highlight: US Open Champ! :worship:
Insider Info: The US Open Champ has settled in nicely at being a Top 10 fixture since his big win in New York. We just wish you'd do something with that serve. Watch out, kids... this Chris character is better than the 83 Chris' you've met before him, and he's not to be underestimated this week!
Did you know? My personal favorite is Chris 45. What a nice kid. But you're growing on me, 84... you're growing on me.

(7)Davenselesport USA
AKA Martina Hingis
2006 Highlight: Giving America any kind of glory in 2006 in the tennis world.
Insider Info: D-Sport quitely had a very nice year... no titles... no dramatic catfights with other players (But did you hear what Slokid said about you??)...a low 10th best result for the year... but a lot is to be said for performing well at the big events!
Did you know? Get ready for this. I'm about to drop a bombshell. Take a close look at the name Davenselesport. I'm about to tell you something that I just figured out. Are you sitting for this one? It's actually... a combination of Davenport and Seles! Really!!! I'm not kidding! Daven - Seles- Port! Rearrange Port and Seles now!! Davenport Seles!! :eek: ;)

(8)LUXXXAS POL
AKA Kim Clijsters
2006 Highlight: Amelia Island Champ
Insider Info: Well, LUXXXAS/Kim's reputation as "nicest person on tour" may have been shot at the FITD thread. :eek: :lol: Quite a few gems in there on his part! And I think I like it! LUXXXAS scrapes into the Top 8 at our YECs, and he's determined to make the most of it! The question is: Will the wrist hold up?
Did you know? Just because someone has XXX in their name does not make them a porn star! Check's in the mail for volume 3, please.

(9/WC) smokovec ITA
AKA Patty Schnyder (It wouldn't be an end of the year party without her...)
2006 Highlight: Splashing onto the scene with a title in Miami in his first tournament, Being the "Normal" Tournament Director to balance out me. :lol:
Insider Info: Well, it came down to the wire, but smokovec finally got the WC into the tournament after Zauber failed to show. We all love ya and miss ya Zauber, but this tournament just wouldn't be complete without one of our fave friends who helped keep Suicide Tennis alive this year, when the picture looked pretty bleak. :worship:
Did you know?: In an April 2006 interview with MH Inquirier, smokovec exclusively revealed that he, and I quote, "Plays only for fun.. for me, it's not about where I'm ranked or the results." Au contraire! Sources tell me that smokovec has been known to analyze the draws for hours a DAY during the big tournaments in efforts to find the, and I quote, "Best picks EVER!" :eek: Don't even get me started on his Grand Slam routines... there are photos, to be published this week, of our World's #9 coming out of his "Planning Headquarters". But he only plays for fun, right? Don't worry, your secret is safe with me!

2006 Highlight: Deep runs at the French Open and the US Open
Insider Info: Aidan comes into the YECs ranked #1 - which is incredibly impressive, considering he has yet to win a title on tour. :o The rumor mill has been running wild with criticism that the #1 ranked player could get there without winning a title, but Aidan promises that he'll win one "really, really, really soon. Really."
Did you know? Aidan loves nothing more than long, romantic walks on the beach with his prized metal detector, always in search of the hidden treasures in life.

(2) timray BEL
AKA Maria Sharapova
2006 Highlight: Champion at Zurich
Insider Info: timray is fresh off an inspiring title run in Zurich, which capped off an incredible rise up the ranks in this latter part of the season. The question remains - how much does he left have in the tank for this grueling battle of skill, wits and endurance?
Did you know? timray means "I kill you all so back off bitches this title is mine" in French?

(3) Zauber CAN
AKA Justine Henin-Hardenne
2006 Highlight: 2 Championships, including Linz.
Insider Info: Zauber is another strong contender this year, living it up in Linz and winning the title in impressive fashion. Zauber has consistantly gone deep in tournaments all season long - he has the SECOND highest best 10th result of anyone (and believe me, if you say he has the first, Ceze will let ya know ;) ) - and this may be his big breakthrough. If he shows up.
Did you know? Zauber plans on organizing a march through Washington DC to protest the bye system in this game. Get your "Day 01: No bye, we all die!" banners, T-shirts and posters at all fine retailers now.

(4)DomenicDemaria AUS
AKA Svetlana Kuznetsova
2006 Highlight: Umm winning the French Open?? :worship:
Insider Info: Word on the street is that Australia's #2 player has one target, and one target only: "That Spikey kid" and the prestigeous title of #1 Australian! In an exclusive tell all note on www.DomenicDominates.com, all was revealed: "Ya mate I was like, Spikers, you go and play and I go and win slam and ya mate I was like you're losing the plot here! It's like if a Koala went to Sydney and asked for some Eucalyptus and all he got was a Kangaroo's pouch, ya know eh mate?" Umm, yeah. I know. Sure.
Did you know? Like Sveta, players and fans alike call Domenic "Igor" as well. :eek: :sad: JUST REMEMBER YOU TOO ARE A GRAND SLAM CHAMPION AND THEY ARE JUST JEALOUS!

(5)Ceze FRA
AKA Nadia Petrova (I'm really sorry!!)
2006 Highlight: Being the best ranking updater EVER! This game wouldn't be where it is without you. :) :hug: Oh, and dominating week in, week out, wasn't too shabby either.
Insider Info: Updating the rankings only get you so far... without a career title to his name (Sounds familiar!) and Grand Slam performances that leave a lot to be desired. But don't worry, if Nadia-No Title could eventually do it, there's always hope for you!
Did you know? Ceze went to school with Amelie Mauresmo and they were the best of friends! In fact, Amelie's recent love of bagels comes from the fact that Ceze would bring her some for breakfast every week at school back in the day! ;)

(6)Chris 84 CRO
AKA Elena Dementieva
2006 Highlight: US Open Champ! :worship:
Insider Info: The US Open Champ has settled in nicely at being a Top 10 fixture since his big win in New York. We just wish you'd do something with that serve. Watch out, kids... this Chris character is better than the 83 Chris' you've met before him, and he's not to be underestimated this week!
Did you know? My personal favorite is Chris 45. What a nice kid. But you're growing on me, 84... you're growing on me.

(7)Davenselesport USA
AKA Martina Hingis
2006 Highlight: Giving America any kind of glory in 2006 in the tennis world.
Insider Info: D-Sport quitely had a very nice year... no titles... no dramatic catfights with other players (But did you hear what Slokid said about you??)...a low 10th best result for the year... but a lot is to be said for performing well at the big events!
Did you know? Get ready for this. I'm about to drop a bombshell. Take a close look at the name Davenselesport. I'm about to tell you something that I just figured out. Are you sitting for this one? It's actually... a combination of Davenport and Seles! Really!!! I'm not kidding! Daven - Seles- Port! Rearrange Port and Seles now!! Davenport Seles!! :eek: ;)

(8)LUXXXAS POL
AKA Kim Clijsters
2006 Highlight: Amelia Island Champ
Insider Info: Well, LUXXXAS/Kim's reputation as "nicest person on tour" may have been shot at the FITD thread. :eek: :lol: Quite a few gems in there on his part! And I think I like it! LUXXXAS scrapes into the Top 8 at our YECs, and he's determined to make the most of it! The question is: Will the wrist hold up?
Did you know? Just because someone has XXX in their name does not make them a porn star! Check's in the mail for volume 3, please.

**SPECIAL LAST MINUTE WILDCARD!!**

(9/WC) smokovec ITA
AKA Patty Schnyder (It wouldn't be an end of the year party without her...) ;)
2006 Highlight: Splashing onto the scene with a title in Miami in his first tournament, Being the "Normal" Tournament Director to balance out me. :lol:
Insider Info: Well, it came down to the wire, but smokovec finally got the WC into the tournament after Zauber failed to show. We all love ya and miss ya Zauber, but this tournament just wouldn't be complete without one of our fave friends who helped keep Suicide Tennis alive this year, when the picture looked pretty bleak. :worship:
Did you know?: In an April 2006 interview with MH Inquirier, smokovec exclusively revealed that he, and I quote, "Plays only for fun.. for me, it's not about where I'm ranked or the results." Au contraire! Sources tell me that smokovec has been known to analyze the draws for hours a DAY during the big tournaments in efforts to find the, and I quote, "Best picks EVER!" :eek: Don't even get me started on his Grand Slam routines... there are photos, to be published this week, of our World's #9 coming out of his "Planning Headquarters". But he only plays for fun, right? Don't worry, your secret is safe with me!
