Rappelez-vous que chaque choix, soit bon ou mauvais, peut être mortel...

Suicide à Paris

Finale 2006: Naldo (CAN) bat. wateva (SIN)

1. Each day of play, you must pick 1 winner playing a WTA main draw singles match. No qualifying matches qualify. Of course, the player that you choose, is playing one match scheduled to be played that day (as seen on the order of play). If your pick loses, you are out. For the rest of the tournament. We don't believe in reincarnation here. France is Catholic. Sort of.

2. Once you pick someone, you cannot choose them again for the rest of the tournament. So, you may not want to waste a pick on RULER OF THE TENNIS WORLD JUSTINE HENIN SHE RULES SHE IS THE BEST DIE HATERS *cough* to win 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 first 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 - Séverine Brémond (I know, I too can't believe she's not just in the qualifying draw)

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

5. The seeds will be based on the Suicide Rankings. The Top EIGHT ranked players to commit will be given a bye and will not be required to make a pick on Day One. Please sign up with Zauber and the Anti-Seeds in Suicide (ASS) movement if you wish to join the protest against this rule, but it stands for now.

6. To sign up, please type the word "In". Your sign up will be confirmed when you post your picks on the first day of main draw play.

7. Please be advised that you may only play ONE Suicide Tennis tournament per week. If you play in multiple tournaments per week, you will be given a score of ZERO for the week to go into your ranking.

Communiqué quotidien
Jour 5 - Train

I have to catch the train to go see my girl! And I see a few of you have no faith in her to win the tournament and picked her for day 6 :sad: :sad: I HOPE SHE PROVES YOU WRONG! :( Anyway, the points table has been tallied so far so I promise it will all be up quickly when I get back tomorrow from Paris. And I might write you a better communiqué tomorrow. If I don't somehow accidentally commit suicide à Paris. :o (Now, wouldn't that be ironic. :o)

Also, you may now sign up at Suicide Antwerp (http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=285192) if you wish! I hope to see most of you there. Bring a friend. We're having waffles. You can't say no to waffles!

Communiqué quotidien
Jour 0 - Début

I know, I know, you have all been waiting avec impatience for the pre-tournament bulletin. But life as a Directeur de Tournoi is full of trials and one always has pressing matters to attend to (people picking phantom ducks, players attempting to have a foot in both Paris and Pattaya, Scrabble, etc etc). But here we are, on the eve of Jour 1 and I say:

Bonjour et bienvenue à Paris!

Ah, the city of love, the Eiffel Tower and Amélie (Poulain, not the bagel girl). With all the Franglais going around, though, you would be excused for thinking we were in Canada. (The mass of Canadians in the draw doesn't help either.) But as ChabChab so kindly pointed out, not everyone is as skilled in French as he is, so we will be having lots of English and bits of French just to retain a spirit of authenticity. Croissants, anyone? Crème brûlée?

With so many top players having committed to this tournament, you would think it was a Tier I not taking place in San Diego, Tokyo or Indian Wells. We are still hoping for the participation of SpikeyAidanM and DomenicDemaria - invitations have been sent out! We are also pleased to have newly-crowned WTAworld #3, smokovec, who has offered us his personal tip for Jour 1 even though he has a bye. ;)

Speaking of Jour 1, there are murmurings all around regarding the availability of a mere two matches for picking. :sad: With Daniilidou-Loit dividing opinions, though (COME ON EMILIE!), we are bound to have some people advancing to Jour 2, which is a relief for a Directeur de Tournoi after debacles such as Hobart.

Anyhoo, bonne chance à tous and watch out for the dog poop... it's everywhere in this city. :o

Je me fais de excuser pour ma déclaration. Je trouve que c'est un geste de bienfaisance de votre efforts de parler français. :worship:

Le français est une langue très difficile, je sais parce que il n'est pas ma langue maternelle, c'est le néerlandais (je habite en Belgique: néerlandais - français ).

In English: sorry for my reaction, I really appreciate your attempts for writing something in french. But it's funny, so you guys are entertaining. And you can all laugh with my lacking english ;) . It's too bad that not every tournament in suicide tennis is french and english.

good luck everyone! and an applause for randriantastic, who is organizing this tournament in french and english! :)

Jour 1 - Oh Loit Loit

Quelle épreuve! Who would have expected this at 5-2 set point up in the first? Not me, not I, as Delta Goodrem would say. But luckily, I am through to Jour 2! Along with everyone and their mother-in-law's second cousin who picked Safina, including MH0861 (a delight, need we say more), mommiej (who is making a surprise appearance here when a Tier IV is taking place) and last year's finalist, wateva (meanwhile, we don't know where Naldo is... any clues?)!

Alors, ladies and gentlemen, we have to bid adieu to the Dutchies who didn't want to pick against their beloved Michaella :sad: :sad: including our new Rankings Officer, Ivanovic Fan!!!!. Also gone is recent Australian Open champion seenop who is in a post-Slam slump. :o Meanwhile, it's the classic case scenario, tale as old as time, Pixie will get what he deserves for forgetting again to have a pick: zero points.

As for Jour 2, many have opted for the ex-doubles combo of Safina/Srebotnik to make their way to Jour 3. Will it work? Bonne chance à tous and watch out for the traffic... it's crazy in this city. Best way to commit suicide à Paris. ;)

--

What a battle! Qui s'y serait attendu quand Emilie menait 5-2 avec un point pour gagner la première manche? Not me, not I, d'après les paroles de Delta Goodrem. Mais heureusement, je suis toujours vivant pour day 2!! A côté de tout le monde qui a choisi Safina, y compris MH0861 (qui est le seul joueur qui mérite une traduction en français)!

Well, mesdames et messieurs, nous devons dire farewell aux gens qui ont choisi Daniilidou (voyez ci-dessus) :sad: ou qui n'ont rien choisi... s'il vous plaît, soyez sérieux si vous vous inscrivez à un tournoi! ;)

Alors, pour le 2ème jour, beaucoup de monde a décidé que la combinaison Safina/Srebotnik leur apportera du succès.... on va voir! Good luck to you all et faites attention aux voitures... elles sont folles ici. C'est la meilleure façon de vous suicider à Paris. ;)
