Remember, every choice, whether good or bad, can be deadly...

Suicide Tokyo
2007 Final: Gavnich77(GBR) def. Law_(AUS)

1. Each day of play, you must pick 1 winner playing a WTA main draw singles match. (READ: DO NOT PICK A MATCH FROM THE QUALIFYING DRAW!). 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. If you choose Justine Henin early in a tournament on clay, you will not be able to use her in the semifinal or final. Hence the point of Suicide.

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 - AMELIE MAURESMO

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

5. The top 8 ranked entrants will receive a BYE in a Tier I/II tournament. In a Slam and Tier III/IV tournament, no byes are granted.

6. To sign up, please type the word "In". It is not mandatory to commit or enter before Day 01. If you do not post a Day 01 pick, you will not be listed on the entry list. Your entry is confirmed when your Day 01 pick is posted.

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.

8. Once your pick is posted, that pick is final and may not be changed. Please make sure you are confident in your pick before posting it. If you edit your pick, your pick will be null and void and you will be out on that given day.If you delete your pick, you are disqualified from the tournament.

Report.

Day 1
i thought no one would commit here :lol: :p thank god there were 3 :p anyway im still thankful for that :p
so we have rvugt and last yar's runner up Law_ advance in day 2; unlucky for wedgie619 to fall in the first hurdle :awww:
hope we can still see more of them in the next days :p

Day 2
We saw a late addition come to suicide tokyo newcomer adrian1092 who tipped the rain delayed match between benesova & wickmayer. Adrian1092 completes day1 survivors together with Law_ & rvugt unfortunately his day2 pick didnt make it :awww: so we still have Law_ and rvugt for the title. Since suicide tokyo was quite boring Law_ decided to make it more exciting :devil: he/she tipped a certain Wozniack for day 2:p this person certainly doesnt play for wta but coincidentally two players share similarities with this name wozniacki or wozniak:tape: anyway at the end of the day Law_ patched things up and it was undestood that it was a typo and it was meant to be wozniak after all..and what a day it was for suicide tokyo thanks to Law_ :worship:

Day 2

Pick: Wozniack
Backup: Kirilenko

Its only us 2 again! Almost seemed that a third player would enter, but no! But just wondering, heart, how did you see this one, as there is one letter difference with Wozniak, and one with Wozniacki! They both won, so if Tamarine wins, were both in day 3, but is just good to know who you picked!
