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

Suicide Hobart 20082008 Final: Uranium (USA) def. sharas36 (ISR) 2007 Final: No champion, mass suicide on Day 01

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. So, you don't want to waste a pick on Ana Ivanovic or Maria Sharapova in the early rounds. Conversely, you don't want to make a pick at all on Anna-Lena Groenefeld. Has-beens are not hot.

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. 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 - ANA IVANOVIC

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

5. The seeds will be based on the Suicide Rankings. No seeded players in International tournament. There are no byes here.

6. To sign up, please type the word "In". Variations are more than acceptable. Your sign up will be confirmed when you post your picks on the first day of main draw play, and so it is not necessarily a "must" to sign in.

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 you've post your pick it's final, you CAN'T change them.
So don't edit or delete your post or else you will be DISQUALIFIED!

Everyone who has made the final day has selected Kvitova on Day 1 and Benesova on Day 5.

Tiebreak
03. [026] zveeen .......... [GER] [ Pavlyuchenkova 4, Pironkova 3 ] = 7
09. [113] Andiyan ......... [ROU] [ Pavlyuchenkova 4, Pironkova 3 ] = 7
10. [117] Ruisantos ....... [POR] [ Govortsova 3, Pavlyuchenkova 5 ] = 8

We ignore Kvitova, Rybarikova, Benesova on Days 1, 4, and 5 since they are identical.
Andiyan and Zveeen have identical tiebreakers and as Andiyan said, he did post first.

Andiyan is the champion.
zveeen is the finalist.
Ruisantos and James are the SFs.

Congratulations! :D
