Suicide Tennis #11 - ATP MS1000 Miami - Ann is the winner!
« on: March 19, 2013, 01:04:36 PM »
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: 80
Losing Pick on Day 6: 130
Losing Pick on Day 7: 200
Losing Pick on Day 8: 280
Losing Pick on Day 9: 400
Losing Pick on Day 10: 550
Losing Pick on Day 11: 750
Winning the title: 1000


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

Only five players? That's a disappointment. The good news is that all five survived the 1st day. Hewitt gave a scare in losing games twice while serving for the match but won in the end. Malisse didn't seem rock solid either but came through.

No masterclass either. This is truelly disappointing after the effort we put in to promote this game here.
If it gets only 5 players the next coming weeks, we should think about giving up on it.

I'm not willing to organize it every week by myself if only 5 are playing it.  :Confused:

A game like this would work if a lot of people are around.
 
If traffic improves in coming times then it can be restarted if it doesn't pick up soon.

I was thinking that too.
But the Castlers aren't really playing it, and there aren't many newcomers to the forums.
In FITD we already have about 10 consistent players.

More players makes it definately more challenging.
