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

Suicide Gold Coast 2008

2007 Final:​
hu2891601 (USA) def. kwanfan (USA) (Day 05 OVER Day 05)​
2006 Final:​
Event Not Held​

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. This is a Tier III tournament, therefore no byes are granted and everyone must make a pick on Day 01.

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: #112 - Suicide Tennis - GOLD COAST 2008 - SIGN UP! New Players Welcome!

Gold Coast's GOLD Tournament Preview

Well, welcome to the first official event of the 2008 season! Even if it's still 2007. I've never been good at math. But play along, won't you?

We kick off the year at Gold Coast (or Auckland), depending on whether you're a flukeish 2-time slam champ on the mend (love ya Amelie) or a 3-time slam champ Mama on the Prowl (LD what what!). Speaking of which, I don't appreciate the slight Mrs. Davenport received when the new Suicide Banner was released. I demand the following banner be used until this wrong is corrected by the Australian Open:



Thanks in advance to the powers that be.

Moving on, Gold Coast may be the first tournament of the season, but that's no reason to be careless. Let's take a brief look at some of the pratfalls and dangers that lurk in the Australian Outback that could lead to an unfortunate death:

KILLER KANGAROOS-

Australian Kangaroos eat small children people!!


FRIGHTENING CREATURES LURKING OFF THE GOLD COAST-

Lose in my tournament and you will walk the freakin plank into these waters!

WILD AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK NATIVES
These natives will bite, scratch and/or sit on you. :sad:


Please remember not to feed the wildlife. Thanks for your cooperation


And without further delay, I present the Gold Coast Gold Exempt List :) (as well as Silver to keep the party going)


Gold Coast's GOLD Exempt List
aka Suicide's Most Valuable Players​

#1. mat87to
Who is more valuable than our year end #1?

#2. NyCPsU
He's a survivor! He's gonna make it! He's ain't gonna stop! He's gonna work harder!

#3. In The Zone
After a dream run to the Australian Open Final, the Gold Coast crowds go wild for ITZ. And Britney. Gimme more, In The Zone. Gimme more.

#4. Ivanovic Fan!!!!
Without Sjoerd, we wouldn't be able to tell a timray from a leoneo!!!!

!!!!!

#5. Tomek.
Proving that you aren't a real champ until you put a period at the end.

#6. Randriantastic!
Randriantastic! has spread the suicide love to various ends of the Earth - most notably Madagascar. If only the masses there could get a computer to play.


SILVER Exempt List
aka The Elena Dementieva's of Suicide Tennis​

#7. Dementieva_Dude
Do I even need to explain? :p

#8. pierce0415
Giving hope to banned posters everywhere that you, too, can overcome the hate and rise above it all to succeed. So we keep on waiting (waiting!) waiting on the board to change.

#9. Ceze
You've been a bit MIA, but we say enter any tournament any day :D

#10. SloKid
Well every good countdown needs a good trainwreck story. You're a former #1 and still command much respect, despite a questionable ranking!

Gold Coast's GOLD EXEMPT EMERITUS Status

#11. SpikeyAidanM
Should you ever decide to come back, we'll welcome you back with open arms ;)
