2019 ATP Sudden Death League: Sydney


Hall of Fame
Welcome to our third event of the 2019 ATP Sudden Death League season:

Sydney International
6 - 12 January, 2019
ATP 250 event
Outdoor Synthetic Hardcourt

RULES (ATP 250 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. You pick one player per round.

3. You can pick a player only ONCE in the tournament. 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 from 2017 applies: let me know in advance if you want to make a specific set of picks.

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.

1 correct pick (R1): 30
2 correct picks (R2): 60
3 correct picks (QF): 100
4 correct picks (SF): 150

The following players have Save Picks for the 2019 SDL Season - these can be used as per the rules specified in my 2018 WTF thread. Save Picks are valid to use at any time throughout the 2018 SDL Season (except at the World Tour Finals), but must be used by the Round of 16 in Slams/Major Tournaments or by the Quarter-Finals in other tournaments:

The pressure is off me now. I did some indepth calculations and ran a couple computer models, and it looks like with a win and a final in these first two tournaments, it is now mathematically impossible for anyone to overtake me for Year End No. 1. Furthermore, Ivo Karlovic has locked up at least the No. 2 seed at the WTF.
