2019 ATP Sudden Death League: US OPEN


Welcome to the the final Slam event of the 2019 ATP Sudden Death League season!

2019 US Open Championships
New York, USA
Outdoor Hardcourt
26 August - 8 September, 2018

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), pick by the round - this will mean making 10 correct picks in total to win the title.

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 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 will thus be structured as follows:

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