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

Suicide US Open!

2006 FINAL: (11) Chris 84 def. (19) Mommiej (DAY 10 w/ PICK over DAY 10 w/ PICK)

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 Henin 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. This tournament is MANDATORY, make it count!

8. NO EDITING OF POSTS! ALL PICKS ARE FINAL!

DAY 11 MATCHES

Justine Henin v. Venus Williams
Svetlana Kuznetsova v. Anna Chakvetadze

Aug 11th, 2007, 04:02 PM
2007 US Open Preview

Come one, come all as MH0861 gives his breakdown on this year's US Open field. Who will outlive the competition? Who will die faster than you can say "Game, set, match, championship, world domination: MH0861"? Who is just plain ugly?

Please join your co-hosts MH0861 and Crystal Ball as they offer their thoughts and insight into what fate awaits our top contenders! Enjoy. :D

Seeds 1-8

1. timray (BEL):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: These Belgians, I tell you. If one isn't dominating the WTA Tour, you've got another dominating Suicide Tennis! timray has silently established himself as the force to be reckoned with in this game - consistently going deep week after week, even if he may not rack up the titles.
Crystal Says: "Twas half past tenth the day when poor timray passed away. Allez!"


2. mat87to (ITA):
2007 Titles: 1 (San Diego)
Outlook: Our #2 player in the world has been in fine form all summer, and as a result has earned himself the title of first ever Suicide US Open Series Champion. :yeah: Will the pressure get to him?
Crystal Says: "I like your game and I think you're ready to take over at #1 in the rankings. Day 11 with pick for such a nice fella. Ella. Ella. Eh. Eh. Eh."

3. vamos israel (ISR):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: Vamos! VM has been threatning for the #1 rank in this game for a while now and is looking to continue his fine form into the final slam of the year. However, as the highest ranked player without a title.. when will the breakthrough come?
Crystal Says: The breakthrough will not come here. I like your chances at defending your 590 points this tournament. However, don't fret because your first title will come in September. But don't hold me to that.

4. MH0861 (USA):
2007 Titles: 2 (Amelia Island, Los Angeles)
Outlook: Well who do we have here? Who is this absolute STUD? :hearts: Your Suicide Race leader has had a great year, but kinda sucks in slams. Big time. Finished #2 in the US Open Series Challenge.
Crystal Says: On Day 06 is '0861 done. No fun.

5. NyCPsU (USA):
2007 Titles: 1 (Rome)
Outlook: It's hard for me to even type out my thoughts because it seems like Crystal is nearly convulsing, because the prognosis is really not that good. I've no reason to doubt your game - your ranking has gone up nicely this year and you have solid strategy and instincts when making your picks. :yeah:
Crystal Says: N-y-C-P-I-C-U gone by Day Two...N-y-C-P-I-C-U gone by Day Two.. N-y-C-P-I-C-U gone by..

6. Tomek. (POL):
2007 Titles: 1 (Stanford)
Outlook: Tomek. will be looking to rebound from an absolute horror of a Wimbledon. Serena Williams can still beat players after falling on the ground and cramping. Sadly, Tomek., you are not that strong. You won't be able to get away with "making picks at 14% of your ability" which was your excuse at Wimbledon here!
Crystal Says: Oh Tomek. I sense a wreck. On Day 07. And that's final. Period.

7. Stingray (GBR):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: My pick. Yep, I went ahead and said it. This is the man to beat. He will be holding up the trophy next Saturday.

Sorry for making you a marked man. Please do not forward any hate mail you receive to me. My lawyer said that is not allowed.

Crystal Says: "I am too clever to resort to saying you'll die from a stingray bite or attack or whatever those horrible creatures do to terrorize swimmers on lovely summer days at the beach on Day 10. Nope. Won't do it."

8. Drake1980 (CAN):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: Drake has proven that you don't always have to pick crazy things like Brengle over Pennetta week in and week out to do well in this game. There's always a place for people who make smart and safer picks, and Drake has made this strategy work in the game.
Crystal Says: "If someone said three days from now, you'd be long gone, I'd stand up and punch them out, for they're all wrong - that Bondarenko that you pick will lose again. Who knew?"


Seeds 9-16:

9. Freakan (POL):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: Just missing out on a Top 8 seed, but he has established himself as a force to be reckoned with on tour. In fact, Freakan was recently awarded "Most likely to finish runner up at a slam!'' at a recent Suicide Tennis player party event in San Diego. The question is: can you live up to these lofty expectations?
Crystal Says: "I'm sorry, but I do not see you past the first week. Doesn't that freakan' suck?"

10. adachi (CHN):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: China's first Top 10 player is trying to have a breakout event before next year's Olympic Games in Beijing. Watch out, though - or you will be added to pierce0415's list of chinese players to [s]stalk[/b] heavily support.
Crystal Says: "There's a light at the end of the tunnel. Could it be.. could this be the one? Oops, that train got you on Day 05."

11. Selyoink (USA):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: A newcomer to the MH0861 seeding party, you've had a great year! You're inching up closer and closer to that elusive top 10 ranking, but I'm concerned that you may make an error in judgment during your quest to defend so many points at this event.
Crystal Says: "Benesova fans do not have good karma. Early death. Get a new fave."

12. Nicjac (SUI):
2007 Titles: 1 (Istanbul)
Outlook: Well in a country full people like Hingis [ :devil: ], Schnyder [ :silly: ] and Federer [ :drool: ] ... Switzerland is now looking for its breakout Suicide Star. Now, we already have Super Forehand Woman, Freaky Frizzy Girl and God... what Swiss Role will you play?
Crystal Says: "Get me a Swatch and you can stick around till Day 8. I need to be trendy. Oh, and chocolate, too. A seer always needs her chocolate. Otherwise, we'll be Nicjac free on Day 05."

13. star (CAN):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: Oh star. If I had to pick someone who had my favorite username on WTAworld, you've be a very close second (#1 belong to MH0861havemybabiesuragoddddd!). You're a star. But a superstar? Prove it during these two weeks.
Crystal Says: "I think of my favorite childhood song when I peer into your future. Star light, star bright, the first star I see tonight I wish I may, I wish I might, watch this star fall apart tonight. Day 09. Bye."

14. smokovec (ITA):
2007 Titles: 1 (Sydney)
Outlook: What an up and down 52 weeks smokovec has had. This time last year, he was an unseeded World #33... who then went on a hot streak that culminated in a stint at #1. Now, he's been freefalling a bit and finds himself at #14. Can he recapture the magic at Flushing Meadows?
Crystal Says: "I have a soft spot for you, but I have to do my job. Day 07. Gruesome. Tears will be shed. But you still have a great personality!"

15. Aleksz (HUN):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: Ho hum. You have a solid game, but your mandatory event scores do not "wow" me. So, Aleksz, I say this to you: Wow us this week. Bring your A-game. Say, "My name is Aleksz and I am here to wow you. Buckle up. Cause I'm gonna drive away with this competition!''. Well, no. Don't say that. Nobody likes to get hit with rocks. And that's what would happen.
Crystal Says: "Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. That's a code. Try to decipher it."

16. ~~*Elena.D*~~ (GER):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: Oh ~~*Elena.D*~~. You are a ~~*Manager's Dream*~~. This is ~~*not*~~ annoying at all. It does not make our lives ~~*miserable*~~ when we type up entry lists or results. You're a ~~*pretty good*~~ player and I think you will ~~*go far*~~ this week.
Crystal Says: ~~*Watch out*~~ for a killer ~~*italian*~~ on ~~*Day 08*~~.

Best of 17-32:

17. seenop (ISR):
2007 Titles: 1 (Australian Open)
Outlook: Once a slam winner, always a slam threat. seenop hasn't built too much on his slam victory, but still comes into the year's final slam at a respectable #17. The question is, which seenop will show up? The one who dominated at the Australian, or the one who went out quietly at Wimbledon?
Crystal Says: "The latter. Let other people win.


21. Fire_Fox (UKR):
2007 Titles: 1 (Antwerp)
Outlook: Fire_Fox is back from a terrible injury to his typing fingers that prevented him from competing at Wimbledon. And that's bad news for you all, because this kid does not mess around. Despite having 1 title, Fire_Fox regularly makes it to the end of tour events and did also finish runner up at Amelia Island. Watch this Fox.
Crystal Says: This Fox will get burned by an Australian this week. Watch out for the Prattasaurus!

23. Chris 84 (IRL):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: Well for a while, it looked like Chris was setting himself to dominate the game. Chris is your DEFENDING CHAMPION and a career in the Top 10 just hasn't really panned out in 2007.
Crystal Says: Will Chris wake up and defend his honor? Or will he lose early and join BFF SloKid in a freefall down the rankings? I'm not telling...

26. In The Zone (USA):
2007 Titles: 1 (Barcelona)
Outlook: ITZ blasted onto the scene with a very impressive run to the final in Melbourne. Since then, he's had some good results but seems to be struggling with the weight of expectation that comes with strong slam performances. I mean, I would too if those tabloids wrote those stories about me too. But people like me, so I wouldn't have to worry about that. You just blast that Britney and let the haters hate on, ITZ!
Crystal Says: "A slam final? Oops.. he did it again!

MH0861
Aug 27th, 2007, 05:50 AM
2007 US Open Preview

Come one, come all as MH0861 gives his breakdown on this year's US Open field. Who will outlive the competition? Who will die faster than you can say "Game, set, match, championship, world domination: MH0861"? Who is just plain ugly?

Please join your co-hosts MH0861 and Crystal Ball as they offer their thoughts and insight into what fate awaits our top contenders! Enjoy. :D

Seeds 1-8

1. timray (BEL):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: These Belgians, I tell you. If one isn't dominating the WTA Tour, you've got another dominating Suicide Tennis! timray has silently established himself as the force to be reckoned with in this game - consistently going deep week after week, even if he may not rack up the titles.
Crystal Says: "Twas half past tenth the day when poor timray passed away. Allez!"


2. mat87to (ITA):
2007 Titles: 1 (San Diego)
Outlook: Our #2 player in the world has been in fine form all summer, and as a result has earned himself the title of first ever Suicide US Open Series Champion. :yeah: Will the pressure get to him?
Crystal Says: "I like your game and I think you're ready to take over at #1 in the rankings. Day 11 with pick for such a nice fella. Ella. Ella. Eh. Eh. Eh."

3. vamos israel (ISR):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: Vamos! VM has been threatning for the #1 rank in this game for a while now and is looking to continue his fine form into the final slam of the year. However, as the highest ranked player without a title.. when will the breakthrough come?
Crystal Says: The breakthrough will not come here. I like your chances at defending your 590 points this tournament. However, don't fret because your first title will come in September. But don't hold me to that.

4. MH0861 (USA):
2007 Titles: 2 (Amelia Island, Los Angeles)
Outlook: Well who do we have here? Who is this absolute STUD? :hearts: Your Suicide Race leader has had a great year, but kinda sucks in slams. Big time. Finished #2 in the US Open Series Challenge.
Crystal Says: On Day 06 is '0861 done. No fun.

5. NyCPsU (USA):
2007 Titles: 1 (Rome)
Outlook: It's hard for me to even type out my thoughts because it seems like Crystal is nearly convulsing, because the prognosis is really not that good. I've no reason to doubt your game - your ranking has gone up nicely this year and you have solid strategy and instincts when making your picks. :yeah:
Crystal Says: N-y-C-P-I-C-U gone by Day Two...N-y-C-P-I-C-U gone by Day Two.. N-y-C-P-I-C-U gone by..

6. Tomek. (POL):
2007 Titles: 1 (Stanford)
Outlook: Tomek. will be looking to rebound from an absolute horror of a Wimbledon. Serena Williams can still beat players after falling on the ground and cramping. Sadly, Tomek., you are not that strong. You won't be able to get away with "making picks at 14% of your ability" which was your excuse at Wimbledon here!
Crystal Says: Oh Tomek. I sense a wreck. On Day 07. And that's final. Period.

7. Stingray (GBR):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: My pick. Yep, I went ahead and said it. This is the man to beat. He will be holding up the trophy next Saturday.

Sorry for making you a marked man. Please do not forward any hate mail you receive to me. My lawyer said that is not allowed.

Crystal Says: "I am too clever to resort to saying you'll die from a stingray bite or attack or whatever those horrible creatures do to terrorize swimmers on lovely summer days at the beach on Day 10. Nope. Won't do it."

8. Drake1980 (CAN):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: Drake has proven that you don't always have to pick crazy things like Brengle over Pennetta week in and week out to do well in this game. There's always a place for people who make smart and safer picks, and Drake has made this strategy work in the game.
Crystal Says: "If someone said three days from now, you'd be long gone, I'd stand up and punch them out, for they're all wrong - that Bondarenko that you pick will lose again. Who knew?"


Seeds 9-16:

9. Freakan (POL):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: Just missing out on a Top 8 seed, but he has established himself as a force to be reckoned with on tour. In fact, Freakan was recently awarded "Most likely to finish runner up at a slam!'' at a recent Suicide Tennis player party event in San Diego. The question is: can you live up to these lofty expectations?
Crystal Says: "I'm sorry, but I do not see you past the first week. Doesn't that freakan' suck?"

10. adachi (CHN):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: China's first Top 10 player is trying to have a breakout event before next year's Olympic Games in Beijing. Watch out, though - or you will be added to pierce0415's list of chinese players to [s]stalk[/b] heavily support.
Crystal Says: "There's a light at the end of the tunnel. Could it be.. could this be the one? Oops, that train got you on Day 05."

11. Selyoink (USA):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: A newcomer to the MH0861 seeding party, you've had a great year! You're inching up closer and closer to that elusive top 10 ranking, but I'm concerned that you may make an error in judgment during your quest to defend so many points at this event.
Crystal Says: "Benesova fans do not have good karma. Early death. Get a new fave."

12. Nicjac (SUI):
2007 Titles: 1 (Istanbul)
Outlook: Well in a country full people like Hingis [ :devil: ], Schnyder [ :silly: ] and Federer [ :drool: ] ... Switzerland is now looking for its breakout Suicide Star. Now, we already have Super Forehand Woman, Freaky Frizzy Girl and God... what Swiss Role will you play?
Crystal Says: "Get me a Swatch and you can stick around till Day 8. I need to be trendy. Oh, and chocolate, too. A seer always needs her chocolate. Otherwise, we'll be Nicjac free on Day 05."

13. star (CAN):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: Oh star. If I had to pick someone who had my favorite username on WTAworld, you've be a very close second (#1 belong to MH0861havemybabiesuragoddddd!). You're a star. But a superstar? Prove it during these two weeks.
Crystal Says: "I think of my favorite childhood song when I peer into your future. Star light, star bright, the first star I see tonight I wish I may, I wish I might, watch this star fall apart tonight. Day 09. Bye."

14. smokovec (ITA):
2007 Titles: 1 (Sydney)
Outlook: What an up and down 52 weeks smokovec has had. This time last year, he was an unseeded World #33... who then went on a hot streak that culminated in a stint at #1. Now, he's been freefalling a bit and finds himself at #14. Can he recapture the magic at Flushing Meadows?
Crystal Says: "I have a soft spot for you, but I have to do my job. Day 07. Gruesome. Tears will be shed. But you still have a great personality!"

15. Aleksz (HUN):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: Ho hum. You have a solid game, but your mandatory event scores do not "wow" me. So, Aleksz, I say this to you: Wow us this week. Bring your A-game. Say, "My name is Aleksz and I am here to wow you. Buckle up. Cause I'm gonna drive away with this competition!''. Well, no. Don't say that. Nobody likes to get hit with rocks. And that's what would happen.
Crystal Says: "Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. That's a code. Try to decipher it."

16. ~~*Elena.D*~~ (GER):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: Oh ~~*Elena.D*~~. You are a ~~*Manager's Dream*~~. This is ~~*not*~~ annoying at all. It does not make our lives ~~*miserable*~~ when we type up entry lists or results. You're a ~~*pretty good*~~ player and I think you will ~~*go far*~~ this week.
Crystal Says: ~~*Watch out*~~ for a killer ~~*italian*~~ on ~~*Day 08*~~.

Best of 17-32:

17. seenop (ISR):
2007 Titles: 1 (Australian Open)
Outlook: Once a slam winner, always a slam threat. seenop hasn't built too much on his slam victory, but still comes into the year's final slam at a respectable #17. The question is, which seenop will show up? The one who dominated at the Australian, or the one who went out quietly at Wimbledon?
Crystal Says: "The latter. Let other people win.


21. Fire_Fox (UKR):
2007 Titles: 1 (Antwerp)
Outlook: Fire_Fox is back from a terrible injury to his typing fingers that prevented him from competing at Wimbledon. And that's bad news for you all, because this kid does not mess around. Despite having 1 title, Fire_Fox regularly makes it to the end of tour events and did also finish runner up at Amelia Island. Watch this Fox.
Crystal Says: This Fox will get burned by an Australian this week. Watch out for the Prattasaurus!

23. Chris 84 (IRL):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: Well for a while, it looked like Chris was setting himself to dominate the game. Chris is your DEFENDING CHAMPION and a career in the Top 10 just hasn't really panned out in 2007.
Crystal Says: Will Chris wake up and defend his honor? Or will he lose early and join BFF SloKid in a freefall down the rankings? I'm not telling...

26. In The Zone (USA):
2007 Titles: 1 (Barcelona)
Outlook: ITZ blasted onto the scene with a very impressive run to the final in Melbourne. Since then, he's had some good results but seems to be struggling with the weight of expectation that comes with strong slam performances. I mean, I would too if those tabloids wrote those stories about me too. But people like me, so I wouldn't have to worry about that. You just blast that Britney and let the haters hate on, ITZ!
Crystal Says: "A slam final? Oops.. he did it again!

Wow, glad I didn't see this before my Day 1 and 2 picks, or I might have buckled under the pressure and expectations :o :tape: :D

11. Selyoink (USA):
2007 Titles: 0
Outlook: A newcomer to the MH0861 seeding party, you've had a great year! You're inching up closer and closer to that elusive top 10 ranking, but I'm concerned that you may make an error in judgment during your quest to defend so many points at this event.
