#0061 - Suicide Tennis - I LOVE DUBAI: COMPLETED - CONGRATS TO THE WINNER: TdF_DBLL!
 


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


Suicide Dubai 2007


2006 Final: maximus82 (USA) def. Timray (BEL)



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 DEFENDING DUBAI CHAMPION AND TENNIS GODDESS Justine Henin 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. 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 - Maria Sharapova

Oh wait.

BACK-UP PICK - Serena Williams

Oh wait.

BACK-UP PICK - Justine Henin

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


5. The seeds will be based on the rankings, hopefully as of the Open Gaz de France (If not, Tokyo). The top EIGHT ranked players to commit will be given a bye and not required to make a pick on Day 01.

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.

DAY 03 GIFT GIVEAWAY
There's platinum lightning in the sky." - Gwen Stefani

People. I'm bored. I have this itch and urge to cross out more names, and I was unable to cross out a single competitor today. :sad: What up with that! After a full 07 days of death by sloth last week and two days of sloth deaths this week, I thought I would be able to satisfy my thirst for death by crossing out some lazy bum who couldn't be bothered to make a pick, but alas you were all on top of your game today.

That's not to say there weren't some close calls today.. many of our players' lives really were hanging by a thread. I, for instance, went through a very deep and thoughtful process about who to pick on Day 03. My first option was Daniela Hantuchova. I was like "Oh Dani, she's a good pick, she should win". Then I remember this horrific experience just a few weeks ago when I picked her on Day 01 in Tokyo and the bitch lost. So I was like NEXT, and onto Patty Schnyder. Then I remembered one must not but their life in the hands of a psychopath. I finally decided to pick my beloved Martina, and I guess I don't really have to worry about her making it to Day 06 after today's struggle. :o

Anyways! On to your splendid Day 04 gift! If there's three things I need in my life, it's Tennis, Cinnamon, and BLING BLING! :hearts: In honor of platinum selling Gwen Stefani, here's some platinum rings for you all. ;)



And so, with Day 04, we all seem to go our own seperate ways. Some of you are on Team Henin (cheaters). Some of you are on Team Mauresmo (chokers). Some of you are on team Hingis (weaklings). Some of you are on team Kuznetsova (really cool, smart, wise, amazing players. :) ) Whatever path your life may take this week.. may it culminate in health and happiness. ;)
