2018 ATP Sudden Death League: Washington DC

RS92

Hall of Fame
Welcome to the 23rd event of the 2017 ATP Sudden Death League season:

Citi Open
Washington, DC, USA
Outdoor Hardcourt
July 30 - August 05 2018



RULES (ATP 500 event):

1. 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. You have to pick one player per round.

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.

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 - as stated in the Monte Carlo and Barcelona threads.)

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.

SCORE FOR THIS TOURNAMENT:

1 correct pick: 50
2 correct picks: 100
3 correct picks: 160
4 correct picks: 220
5 correct picks: 320
6 correct picks: 500

I thought Big D (Felt so wrong to call him Big D lol) is from Oz.
From Houston but he traveled to Oz for AO ('16?).
Haha, yep born and raised in Houston, Texas. You're right, it was the '16 Australian Open I went to; Got to see Federer beat Dimitrov on the jumbotron outside of RLA, then we had tickets to the night session on MCA for Djoker vs Seppi. Watched a bit of the Cilic vs RBA match on one of the courts right outside of MCA after Djoker won, but Cilic wasn't playing very well and then some annoying guy right near us kept yelling Cilic, so we left before it was over. I wish we would have stayed closer to the tennis complex because the train ride to Melbourne Park from Box Hill and vice versa was a bit lengthy. I remember we didn't get back until about midnight and there wasn't much open in terms of restaurants.

@TripleATeam The Medvedev thing stems from this incident earlier in the year at Miami:

Medvedev was miffed that Tsitsipas took an emergency bathroom break during the 3rd set and then Tsitsipas clipped the tape with one of his shots and didn't apologize, which was enough to send Medvedev over the edge, despite the fact that he won the match.
