Welcome to the 22nd event of the 2021 WTA Sudden Death League: US OPEN

Play starts on Monday 30th August

2021 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. You must be logged in to make your pick, proxy picks are not allowed

4. You cannot advance to the next round via a walkover, 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.
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.

8. For late picks, we will use whichever timestamp Flashscore.com shows for the match. Your post must be made before the time Flashscore gives. Keep in mind, Flashscore might round the start time (ie if a match begins at 12:07, Flashscore might show 12:05 or 12:10.). Ties will not be counted.

We will be picking 10 pick's for this tournament,

Pick 1: Round 1 top or bottom half
Pick 2: Round 1 bottom of top half
Pick 3: Round 2 top/ bottom
Pick 4: Round 2 bottom/ top
Pick 5: Round 3 top/ bottom
Pick 6: Round 3 bottom/ top
Pick 7: Round of 16
Pick 8: Quarter Finals
Pick 9: Semi Finals

Much as I admire Aussie Darcy, (s)he hasn't made a pick yet, as far as I can see. But in the League file as it now stands, there's a blank for me and my picks are on Aussie Darcy's line. I don't object to trading Darcy's SDL history with mine, so please transfer all of Darcy's SDL achievement history over to me, especially all his/her titles over the years? Many thanks!

The gender doubt was created by good memories of "Aussie Kim," as Clijstters was formerly christened by you all.
