    It's just two first round matches here right?

    Does it start once the draws or out? Or is it the day before the first matches? Just want to mark it on the calendar!

    Unless the schedule change, the answer is Yes. 2 for ATP and 2 for WTA.

    Welcome, Woody!

    When the order of play is announced (usually sometime Saturday, USA time), we will post the Day 1 matches - once this thread is opened, you can make your Day 1 pick. We can't open the first days thread until we are certain what matches/half of the draw will be playing on Day 1.

    Welcome to TAT, noedee.

    When the Day 1 Order of Play is announced, we will post separate Day 1 Womens Pick and Day 1 Mens Pick threads in this (the Suicide Pool) section of our forum, and announce that we are open for your Day 1 pick. You just reply in that thread with the name of your Day 1 pick.

    We'll then Open a Day 2 thread at some point during Day 1 play, and you'll make your second pick, and so on...

    And if we lose are we then blocked from participating? I am not quite sure I understand how this works.

    hi nyjoel,

    to join, you'll need to post your pick in the correct thread in the forum. There will be new threads labeled something pretty obvious like "Day 1 Men's SP ..." and "Women's Day 1 ...". As long as your pick(s) for that day win, you'll need to make a new pick in the Day 2 thread(s), then Day 3, and so on.

    There's nothing physically preventing you from making a Day 3 pick if your Day 2 pick loses (for example). But once your Day 2 pick loses, you're out of the pool, and your Day 3 pick becomes moot.

    Does that help?

    Hi nyjoel!

    Yes, sadly, once your daily pick loses, you would officially be out of the contest, but certainly not barred from sharing your displeasure in what we affectionately call The Loser's Lounge

    Also, if you're out of the men's game, you are still alive in the women's, as they are separate events.
    I'll miss you!

    What happens if your pick doesn't get to play on the specified day because of the rain?

    You still need to make your choice for the next day.

    Unfortunately, audiman, you were one of two people who picked a player who was never scheduled to play on Monday (the wrong half of the draw). We also had one other person who picked Ferrer, who was in the other half of the draw as well.

    ALERT:

    For day 2, you have offered the Date-Krumm match, but it does not appear on australianopen.org on the day 2 Schedule of Play. Have there been changes to the schedule? You might have to get re-picks from some people. I'm assuming the official site has the official sched?
