Re: The Suicide Locker Room.

I still think we need to get rid of the if 12 players play and no one reaches day 7 points.
In the Zone, your argument is that it protects the level of the tier 3 and 4, but I think its silly to give someone making it to day 3 of a tier 4 more points then someone who makes it to day 2 of a tier 1.

Because making it to a Day 2 of a Tier I doesn't require much skill or difficulty.

Since more than one person seems to be against this, I don't see strong enough reason to NOT take away the points.

In 2008, unless there are objections, we can get rid of the 12 person/7 Day rule.

Well, admittedly, day 2 can be tough because you get like, 3 matches to pick from on day 1 but I do agree that the 12 people rule provides more incentive to participate in a Tier III/IV. *shrug*

Basically, yes. Again, I would say that sets > games in 1) as well.

Re: The Suicide Locker Room.

Canuck's tiebreak rules are perfect. Now that we can formally state it, this is great.

Let's keep up with the rules changes/modifications. We're doing a good job so far!

Re: The Suicide Locker Room.

Because the offseason has been a little boring, I am going to run Suicide at the 75K in Dubai! It will only be for fun. But come play and enjoy! !!

Re: The Suicide Locker Room.



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


Suicide 75K Dubai 2007


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 - TATIANA GOLOVIN

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.

Re: The Suicide Locker Room.

I reworded a few things in the rules. Anything I should add? What does everyone think?

Since the amount of points a person earns is dependent only on their results, having a 3 person tournament is fine.

Re: The Suicide Locker Room.

Is there any chance we could get a hall of fame with finalists and winners so it would be easier to find out who previously won the tournament you are running?

Re: The Suicide Locker Room.

I can work on it. I had a thread for 2007. It will take some time but I'll get one running.

Re: The Suicide Locker Room.

I've no idea if this is even possible but... I would like to have (at the end of each year) like a sort of Award ceremony for Suicide Tennis...
With catagories for: Best Manager, best suicide player, best pick, and also some more novelty (or worst ... ) catagories. Im not very good at making up funny award names but im sure some people can.
And then I think we could get people to nominate others for the awards and then let people vote. I dont know if we should have a rule like, "You can only vote once per catagory and only if you have played at least one tournament in the past year".

I wouldnt mind being the person who is incharge of the tallying and the 'award ceremony' and all that... but if this goes ahead we will need a list of awards and posible its own thread?

What does everyone think?

Re: The Suicide Locker Room.

I tried doing it two years ago and there were not enough votes. We can try your idea at the end of the year. Do you want to organize it?

Re: The Suicide Locker Room.

Sure, i will be happy to organise it... What i need to start with is a way to get people to give me ideas for types of awards, Can I start my own thread or just keep doing it in this thread?
Also can I be a pain to you and Ivanovic Fan!!!! (as you two seem to be the organises of Suicide on this site) and constantly ask you advice if needed...
Also another way to get people to notice this will be to maybe have something in each Suicide Tennis thread (weekly touramnets) like on the original post (if we have a thread for this) have a link like you do for the ranking thread or the rules thread?
