    Welcome to the 15th event of the 2018 WTA Sudden Death League season: CINCINNATI

    Play starts on Monday 13th August

    WTA SDL SHEET IS HERE - RACE 2018 & RANKINGS


    Rules of the game:

    1. 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. 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.

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

    4. 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

    5. As you cannot win a match by a walkover it is highly advised that you make a back-up pick to your main pick. Your pick and back up cannot be from the same match. If so, back up will be invalidated.

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

    7. 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.

    We will be picking 6 pick's for this tournament. Our schedule is -

    Pick 1: Round 1
    Pick 2: Round 2
    Pick 3: Round 3
    Pick 4: Quarter Finals
    Pick 5: Semi Finals
    Pick 6: Final


    SCORES FOR THIS TOURNAMENT -

    1 correct pick: 60 points
    2 correct picks: 140 points
    3 correct picks: 250 points
    4 correct picks: 400 points
    5 correct picks: 600 points

    I think you might have missed the start of the Barty match as Flash Scores has it started at 4.05 UK time. Looks like we will have to go with Kanepi who is 1 set all at the moment

    Well I don’t mind as both one so if I didn’t make Barty I’ll have the Kanepi pick then.
