Welcome to the 5th event of the 2019 WTA Sudden Death League season: INDIAN WELLS

Play starts on Wednesday 6th March

WTA SDL SHEET IS HERE - Rankings 2019

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.

Yeah, only one pick in R1 since there are so many byes, then we split the draw up for the next 4 picks if you keep advancing.

So R2 Top OR Bottom I only pick once either from above or below. But R3 Top slash Bottom I have to choose one match each from those sections? I think I got it.

One pick from R2 top or bottom, whichever half is played first. If you advance, then a separate pick from the other half. Rinse & repeat in R3.
