    Welcome to the fifth edition of the 2013 WTA Sudden Death League season: Internazionali BNL d'Italia, Rome!

    Rules of the game:

    1. Every day of the tournament that day's matches will be posted. You pick one player who you think is going to win. It's a knock out-system: if the player you picked wins, you're through to the next round. If she loses, you're out.

    2. Till the Round of 16, you have to pick one player per day. In the R16, quarters, semis and finals you pick one player per round.

    3. During a tournament, you can pick a player only ONCE. Obviously it's important to make smart choices in order to get far. If you somehow have no players left to pick, you're out as well.

    4. You can't pick a player from a match that has started already.

    5a. If the player you picked retires during the match, you're out. If he retires before the match, you're allowed to change your pick.

    5b. If the opponent of the player you picked retires, it counts like a win. However, you can't pick a player whose opponent had already retired from the tournament.

    6. If you want to change you pick, make a new post quoting the old pick. Edited posts containing picks will not be taken into account.

    SCORE FOR THIS TOURNAMENT
    1 correct pick: 50
    2 correct picks: 150
    3 correct picks: 200
    4 correct picks: 250
    5 correct picks: 470
    6 correct picks: 620
    Winner: 900

    Hi Jay

    I can post something tomorrow after the Rome Masters post the entire tournament schedule. My apologizes about Madrid. I could not find a tournament schedule for the life of me from that website.

    I'll post an official tournament schedule tomorrow night, but for now, this is a tentative one:

    Day 1 - Monday
    Day 2 - Tuesday
    Day 3 - Wednesday
    Day 4 - Thursday
    Quarter-Finals - Friday
    Semi-Finals - Saturday
    Finals - Sunday

    It doesn't look like any Round 1 matches begin tomorrow so I think this is the schedule. Again, this is tentative only.
