Welcome to NEW HAVEN!



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

Suicide New Haven 2010

2009 Final : Ballbasher (MNE) def. MH0861 (USA)


2008 Final : delicatecutter(SRB) def. FORZA PENNETTA (ITA)


2007 Final : Buitenzorg(AUS) def. timray(BEL)




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 Serena Williams or Venus Williams in the early rounds. Conversely, you don't want to make a pick at all on Ana Ivanovic. 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 - MARIA KIRILENKO

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 EIGHT 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!

Announcements


DAY01 & DAY02

Thanks to the Pavlyuchenkova withdrawal and the Kvitova loss, there were an astonishing 44 people killed off on the first day! Then, the usually reliable Jie Zheng only managed to take 3 games against Errani, and 18 more people were taken out on the second day. With a total of 62 people already out, only 35 players are left in the game, include 6/8 seeds. Astonishingly, no player outside the top 80 managed to make it out of DAY01!! DAY03 looks to be a little easier to pick, but who knows with all the deaths already this week!


DAY03

DAY03 was yet another tough day for Suicide New Haven, with 25 players all picking incorrectly! Yanina Wickmayer, who (usually) has a solid hardcourt game, got demolished by Timea Bacsinszky, and Olga Govortsova managed to knock out the favored (although perhaps only slightly) Andrea Petkovic. All of the "big matches" this tournament that have knocked out a lot of players all have one surprising thing in common: they've been very bad straight set losses. Going into DAY04, only 11 players have managed to survive, with only 1 seed!


DAY04

Surprising, no one got knocked out on DAY04 :worship:. The same 11 players still remain going into the quarterfinal round of play.


DAY05

What an eventful DAY05! Surprisingly (although not according to the rankings), Bartoli went down against Dementieva, and some players went for the underdog Safina against Kirilenko but were not rewarded. With Wozniacki's withdrawal and her match being declared Invalid, everyone was eliminated except two players :eek:. Nababescos survived DAY05 but has chosen all 4 quarterfinalists, leaving Inger67 as the only player with a DAY06 pick and our champion :worship:


DAY06

As the only picker on DAY06, Inger67 managed to correctly pick Petrova! Going into the final day, he needs Caroline Wozniacki to beat Dementieva, or he will be left pickless.
