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

Suicide Linz

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 Clijsters 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. The rankings will be used to decide the seeds. The top 8 ranked players to commit will be seeded and get a bye for the first day.

TOURNAMENT BULLETIN (Presented by Raiffeisenlandesbank Oberosterreich.)

Okay, I can breathe. I almost didn't make it. Now, there are only a few things in this life I'm obsessed with - you know, the little things in life. Like power. And money. And fame. But one other thing I am obssessed with is WTAWORLD! :D And I don't know about you, but at about 5pm, seeing my favorite little hangout really "go down" was depressing and nearly drove me to the bottle (I'm proud to say I've been sober for 21 minutes.) MTF is nice and all, but it just not the same! Anyone who says their suicide tennis is better is a liar! (Well, I also had those people "silenced", but if any more remain, you are so banned from playing here then! I must've accidentally tried to come to WTAworld like 10 times last night, it was so bad. I woke up at 3am in a sweat and just had to turn the computer on, and it was still down. :sad: Hang on, sorry, the shaking is getting betterrr. We made through the great WTAworld outage of 2006, guys! :D

Moving onto more pressing matters... Oh Dani. :sad: I mean, if you were as hungry as that poor girl is, you'd leave mid-match to get.. umm, what is an Austrian delicacy? What do those people eat! Do they sell cupcakes there? They have to. Everyone loves cupcakes. Okay, so yes, Dani left mid-match to get cupcakes. But seriously, it always sucks when the person you chooses retires! It's all Mary Pierce's fault, you might say! I'm glad to see she's taken my advice! You know what I always say... "If you can't beat em, hit them really, really hard in the ribs with a foreign object!" :D You may be asking, she took my advice? Well I've been a Life Coach (Since 2006) and she's just one of my many celebrity clients. If you can't win matches,or you need a motivational speaker to speak about the positive aspects of deceit, treachery and physical beatdowns, you know where to find me. :)

And so the race to the Year End DEATH Championships moves on. Some have simply imploded under the pressure! :( Will you? Good luck with your picks...! :D

TOURNAMENT PREVIEW (Presented by Raiffeisenlandesbank Oberosterreich.)

Hello, hello! I AM BACK! :D With increased interest in running tournaments, that means there's less time for your favorite loony American to get some air time around here! But let's cherish the time we do spend together! Even though Linds skipped Linz, I am ready to rock and roll!

It's getting down to the wire here in Suicide Tennis... there's a mad rush to qualify for the Year End Death Championships, taking place in Mad-dead, Sprain this year. :D I hear it's a charming place. While rankings haven't been updated in a while (I STILL LOVE YA CEZE! :D ), the YEDCs will be taking place as scheduled, with the Top 8 ranked players qualifying, and maybe an alternate or two to spice up the fesitivities. Details coming soon.

That said, it places much importance on Linz as every single point counts! I don't know about you, but I've had a pretty crappy Autumn in this game. From ankle sprains to Bondarenkos running wild, it's been a crazy time - but we must maintain the positivity! Everyone's favorite Day 01/02 stalwart, Shahar Pay-er, pulled through for us! :D Unfortunately for those in Team Kirilenko, beauty fades, but slumps can be forever :sad: She retired with running mascara or a broken nail or choking or something.

I HAVE AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!! No, it's not that I've been named King of the World. I'll be holding that press conference next Wednesday.. WTAworld is going to be down tomorrow, and it's going to last for 16 hours ( :eek: )! Please, please take note of my e-mail address ([email protected]) and send me your picks if you can't get on the board! Or you'll be as dead as Alexandra Stevenson's career! See the sticky upgrades announcement or whatever it's called for more details. :)

That is all for now...! Good luck and happy picking for Day 02 - it's an especially bleak selection. :sad: ;)

Note: All seeded players have received byes and will not be required to pick a match during DAY 01. However, if they are to lose on DAY 02, they will receive only 1 point. Regular rules apply to the challengers.

If you are ranked anywhere from 9 onwards, YOU ARE NOT GUARANTEED A BYE.. Please make picks as usual, and byes will be confirmed at the END OF DAY 02.
