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

Suicide in Antwerpen


Final 2006: Sonic the Hedgehog (GBR) def. SpikeyAidanM (AUS) (WINNER over DAY 07)


1. Each day of play, you must pick 1 winner playing a WTA main draw singles match. No qualifying matches qualify. Of course, the player that you choose, is playing one match scheduled to be played that day (as seen on the order of play). If your pick loses, you are out.

2. Once you pick someone, you cannot choose them again for the rest of the tournament. So, you may not want to waste a pick on Anna Chakvetadze, the only player I seem to vaguely care for in this draw, to win 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 first 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 - Kim Clijsters (the bridesmaid again...)

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

5. The seeds will be based on the Suicide Rankings. The Top EIGHT ranked players to commit will be given a bye and will not be required to make a pick on Day One.

6. To sign up, please type the word "In". Your sign up will be confirmed when you post your picks on the first day of main draw play.

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.

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.

Re: #0059 - Suicide in Antwerpen - Accepting entries now!



A napkin to wrap up these waffles

I had a waffle in Maastricht and it was a delight. We had it avec warm cherries and whipped cream and it was delish. I would give some to all six of you who picked your way to 245 points (unless you hate fruit like one of my friends does) but the postage would cost too much. :sad: Shout-out to Fire_Fox for taking the title, Star for coming close and my man MH0861 as usual! :D I could not believe it but we had Death By Sloth even on day 7, as cometz9, who would otherwise have been a semi-finalist, did not remember to come by our pleasant topic and post a pick. :bonk: That is not acceptable, people. For your interest, here is our Suicide Antwerp Death By Sloth Hall Of Shame:

Day 01: hu2891601 (piercerocks picked a qualifying match, so at least he made an effort, albeit a misguided one)
Day 02: jazar and E.Dementieva_FAN
Day 03: Springer78
Day 04: i.Like.Tennis
Day 05: TdF_DBLL
Day 06: Tennace
Day 07: cometz9

A pox on you all! :(

Anyhoo, as usual, thank you for playing, yada yada yada, remember to join Dubai AVEC GIFT PACKS FOR PARTICIPANTS if you haven't yet and hope to see you all again very soon. :) It may be my last tournament for a while but I'll be back someday... maybe with some ice cream (of the Mayan Chocolate variety)...
