Welcome to our 2nd Slam Event of the 2019 ATP Sudden Death League season:


Roland Garros - The 2019 French Open
Paris, France
26 May - 9 June, 2019

(Outdoor) Clay

RULES (Slam/Major Event):

1. In the Main Draw, 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. You pick one player per "half" of the draw for the first 3 rounds. From the Round of 16 (R4) onwards, pick by the round - this will mean making 10 correct picks in total to win the title.

3. 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 cannot 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 cannot 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.

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.

Picks for Slams will be structured as follows:

Pick 1: Round 1 Half 1
Pick 2: Round 1 Half 2
Pick 3: Round 2 Half 1
Pick 4: Round 2 Half 2
Pick 5: Round 3 Half 1
Pick 6: Round 3 Half 2
Pick 7: Round of 16 (Round 4)
Pick 8: Quarter-Finals
Pick 9: Semi-Finals
Pick 10: The Final

This usually depends on which half of the draw plays first - this will be revealed by Saturday 26th May at the latest. Bear in mind that this tournament has a Sunday start.

You are permitted to make conditional picks for the following half/round if you find that your pick is one of the last matches for that half/round and your next desired pick is scheduled to play before your original pick.
Hi - were the rankings updated after Rome? It maybe I'm looking at an old spreadsheet.
Cheers

You might be right, don't think they have been!
Looks like we're a bit behind - I can't access it atm, if someone else hasn't done it by this evening I'll be able to get it done later
You should have quite a few more points (not to mention potentially being #1 after this tournament is done)

Last time I looked I think it has been updated, unless there's been a few missing entries. PDJ has his 600 points from Rome.

I updated both rankings and race yesterday.

PDJ actually dropped 400 pts. A few changes in the top 10, but I suppose that the big change in the rankings it's gonna happen after RG.

In the version I get, it reads l have (for Rome) 280 points in The Race rather than the aforementioned 600?
