Welcome to the 13th event of the 2020 WTA Sudden Death League season: STRASBOURG

Play starts on Monday 21st September

2020 WTA SDL sheet - LEAGUE FILE

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, your back up will be invalidated.
If your main pick is invalid (ie late, unreadable or unspecific) then your back up will become your pick.

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.

We will be picking 5 pick's for this tournament. 1 pick per round

POINTS FOR THIS TOURNAMENT -

1 correct pick - 30 points
2 correct picks: 70
3 correct picks: 120
4 correct picks: 180
5 correct picks: 300

SAVE PICKS FOR 2020

@luiz_gustavo & @Aussie Darcy have 1 save pick to use

1. You can use your save pick to advance if your player loses or retires during their match.

2. Save picks must be used before the last 16 of the Grand Slams or before the last 8 of any other tournament and must be used before the WTA Finals.

3. Please nominate a winning player to replace your losing player.

4. Your next pick must be correct to gain additional points.

5. Covid rule - any unused save picks are OK to use in any 2021 tournament that is not held in 2020. ie IW, SW19

We have clarified the rule regarding what happens if your main pick is late..

If your main pick is invalid (ie late, unreadable or unspecific) then your back up will become your pick
 
Even the set Stephens won she didn't look like she cared too much.
I do not understand her. She's more flighty and inconsistent than Mary Pierce ever was in bringing out her best form. She could literally win the French Open after this loss and I wouldn't be in anyway surprised.

Stephens' isn't close to Pierce in fighting intensity. And Mary had some shockers, but nothing like Stephens. Also when Pierce was 'on' no one could beat her. I'm not sure the same could be said of Stephens.
Still, what she and Pierce do have in common is likeability.

Zhang literally is the only one I can see just not losing. I can see every other match going either way
