Suicide Tennis 2013 - Rotterdam


1. Each day of play you must pick 1 winner playing an ATP main draw singles match. 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 your pick on Federer or Nadal to win in 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. You have to submit your own pick, no one else can submit your pick for you.

4. Only in the case of a walkover or a withdrawal of your main pick, 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 occurrence of a walkover or withdrawal, as stated above. Retirements do count as completed matches.

Replacement picks must be identified like this:
Back-Up Pick - Andy Murray
Make it clear and try to do it all in one post!

5. No commitments are necessary! If you wish to participate, just post your Day 1 pick in the correct time. New players are ALWAYS welcome!

6. Once the order of play is released, it will be added IN THIS THREAD, right below, to facilitate your choices. Each day, this post will be updated with its respective order of play.

NOTE: You can't pick a player from a match scheduled for the previous day and postponed for the next due to rain or darkness! Choose only from the matches posted in the OOP here for the concrete day!

7. Picks will be acceptable until before the start of the FIRST match each day.

8. The scoring system will be as follows:

Losing Pick on Day 1: 1
Losing Pick on Day 2: 10
Losing Pick on Day 3: 25
Losing Pick on Day 4: 50
Losing Pick on Day 5: 100
Losing Pick on Day 6: 180
Losing Pick on Day 7: 300
Winning the title: 500


9. This thread is not made to complain about format, points, etc. There's Suicide Suggestions Thread created for that.

Hm. Difficult round, this. Janowicz and Granollers both lost, leaving only two or three players standing. I might be the third but my pick Davydenko has not played yet. Simon and Klizan are at least confirmed winners. Youzhny won't play today so masterclass ' BU comes in play.

Oh, forgot to check the schedule :).  I was just going by round...  So to confirm, it is by day, and not round?
In any event, I chose Klizan as back up and he won, so I guess I'm still in it, Sir Markus?

You're in. We are lenient about such errors which can be of no advantage to the participant whatsoever. Klizan counts as your day 1 pick and you can pick Youzhny for day 2 or anytime later. And yes - it is by day, not round. We will pick someone seven days in a row, if we're lucky enough to get that far, whereas no player will play more than five rounds. So look for the daily OOP, which will be posted at the start of this thread once it is available (and the organizer has opportunity to add it).

We count someone as a main pick only if they are actually scheduled to play that day - and it's main picks than can only be replaced in case of a WO/withdrawal  :)

Another question that might arise - not likely in Rotterdam indoors, but on other occasions - if you pick someone who is supposed to play but don't get the opportunity then he still counts whenever his match gets to be played, and you must pick someone for the next day without being sure yet if you got that far.

Davydenko has won this evening Markus.
