2018 ATP Sudden Death League: Cincinnati (The Real Slam)

Welcome to the 25th official event in the 2018 ATP Sudden Death League season:

Western & Southern Open (a.k.a. "The Real Slam")
Cincinnati, USA
Outdoor Hardcourt
12 - 19 August, 2018

RULES (Masters 1000 Event):

1. 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 he loses, you're out.

2. Prior to the Round of 16, you have to pick one player per day (day 1 - monday, day 2 - tuesday and day 3 - wednesday). In the R16, quarters, semis and finals you pick one player per round. Day 1 is a Combined Sunday/Monday.

3. You can pick a player only ONCE. Obviously it's important to make smart choices in order to get far. If you have no picks remaining, you're eliminated from the competition.

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

5. You cannot advance to the next round via a walkover since it is hard to know exactly when someone announced they were pulling out HOWEVER this rule does not apply once you reach the semifinals

6. Since you can no longer win a match by a walkover it is highly advised that you make a back-up pick to your main pick - when listing your picks make sure you specify which is your back-up.

7. If the player you picked retires during the match, you're out. If he retires before the match, your back-up pick will be used unless you change your pick before your back up match begins.

8. If the opponent of the person you picked withdraws and is replaced by a lucky loser your original pick will stand unless you specifically change it. Usual caveat with this rule and the consideration of BU applies.

9. NEVER edit your pick. If you want to change your pick, please quote your old pick and choose a new player. Edited posts will not be taken into consideration.

2 correct picks: 120
