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

Suicide Moscow 2008

2007 Final:bg017 (AUS) def. DoctorG (ITA)

2006 Final:Chris 84 (IRL) def. mapaliey (INA)


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 - VENUS 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 8 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. 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 or else you will be DISQUALIFIED!

Day 01 Gremlin Report​


After one day of Gremlin play at the Kremlin, it is pretty clear why we should all listen to MH0861's life philosophy: do not trust devils, cakelovers, or drunks (paging Nadia Petrova).

Marion Bartoli, cake, and Nicole Vaidisova or better known as Slutty Devilsova provided many fatalities on our opening day. Like a gremlin, Nicole deviled her way out of the tournament while Marion ate her way out of it. She was too busy eating all the cookies in the kitchen. Retirement: need of milk.



With Day 01 updated and barely 20% of the field remaining after a huge Day 01 loss, Day 02 hopes to be a bit more predictable. Although Maria Kirilenko and Sara Errani are rumored to have third cousins who are Gremlins. Watch out!


The Gremlin Preview


Anna Chakvetadze needing her sugar fix.

Welcome to Moscow and The Gremlin Cup! Throughout the week, I'll point out the Gremlinest, slimiest, and perhaps stupidest picks with my special friend: Gizmo!



With the YEC Race coming down to the wire and yours truly fighting for entry, Moscow will be a real battleground. I may have to unleash the Gremlins on qczi, FORZA PENNETTA, aussie_fan, and slowvin to ensure my own entry but .. you didn't hear that from me!

Enjoy your time in Moscow! Try not to get tied up and robbed, craving those skittles like the aforementioned Anna Chakvetadze!

Good luck!
