2019 WTA Sudden Death League: US Open


Hall of Fame
Welcome to the 16th event of the 2019 WTA Sudden Death League season: US Open

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.

Pera was down a set & 3-5, reeled off 4 in a row to at least keep me alive a little longer. What’s the quickest ever exit in a Slam? It’s not even noon here in Texas.

And I join the Garcia losers. Awesome. Pera was up 4-2, blew the next 4.

I had never heard of Mariam Bolkvadze until today.

I really thought Caro was gonna take the win. Ons is one of those players we all underestimate. Kudos to her for getting the W and in straight sets too.
