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

Suicide Berlin 2007


2006 Final: SloKid(SLO) def adachi(CHN)

( Day 07 Invalid over Day 07 Invalid )

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 Justine Henin or Svetlana Kuznetsova 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 - Serena Williams

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

5. The seeds will be based on the last rankings. The top 16 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. "I love Britney" is my favorite. 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.

OKTOBERFEST -- DAY 02!!

Welcome to Oktoberfest! Yes, usually this is held a little later, but Germany has decided to bump it a little with the WTA Suicide Tour being in town and all. Over the course of the next five days, while people cry and whimper about their backups twisting their ankles [ or Charlda going Tonya Harding on everyone for his early exit ], I will be passing out some of the world's finest collection of BEER to cheer up everyone's lonesome days.

Day 02:
My, my, my. I do declare that Berlin has turned completely into a mess with no signs of recovery. The rain will be coming on even harder tomorrow and thankfully, we only lost four souls today so more of us can enjoy some Oktoberfest beer.

Today's Beer: Samuel Adams.


Today's beer goes out to someone -- not to drink, or not even to admire -- but so we can pour it over his head and then crack it across the back of his head. WELOVEGAYPEOPLEHEREDONOTVOMITWHENYOUTALKABOUTTHEM. And what better place to punish poor little gigiberi than in Berlin? Enjoy your Sam Adams!!

Good luck on Day 05, we will have many fatalities as many people seem to disagree over Ana and Patty and Sveta and Nadia! Good luck!!

Day 01:
Today's beer goes out especially to Mr. Ronim1. Miss Shahar Peer has never been a friend of mine, or a peer of yours today as she forced your exit from Suicide HELL-in.

Enjoy the Miller Lite, I know I do -- and often. Anywho, moving on to Day 04, hopefully Miss Jelena Jankovic does not have a sudden outbreak of SARS or everyone is screwed. Good luck on Day 04 and prepare for tomorrow's beer!
