Blimey, Wimbledon is here already! Time for another edition of everyone's favourite competition.

I hope most of you will know the rules already, but here they are just to make sure. There have been no rule changes compared to this year's RG edition.

Pick a player each day. If your player wins, you advance to the next day and get to pick again. At the end, glory, lots of forum cred and an entry into the competition's hall of fame (if anyone can be arsed with updating it) awaits the ultimate winner. If your player loses, you are out and eternal shame shall fall upon on. Each player can only be chosen once, so maybe don't pick your favoured finalists on the first two days. If the first set was completed and your player retires, it counts as a loss. If your pick withdraws or retires before the first set is completed, you can pick from another match that hasn't been started yet. So retirement rules are basically the same as on the Betfair Exchange.

If matches are rescheduled due to rain, you are not allowed to pick it on the new day (e.g if Lorenzi-Nakashima is originally scheduled for day 1, but it rains and doesn't start on day 1, starts on day 2 instead...you are not allowed to pick it for day 2. You are however of course allowed to use it as your day 1 pick). If it comes to such a scenario, I will try to point out which matches you are not allowed to pick on the day.

The picks continue every day until either only one person is left, or the tournament has finished.

Picks don't have to be made before all play starts for the day, but it naturally should be made before the match that your pick

Final ranking is determined by day reached (1st, most important criteria) and then average odds of winnings picks (odds taken from tennisexploter.com) to break any eventual ties if multiple people reached the same day.

I hope that covers everything. If there are any additional questions, feel free to ask.

Angoose is officially out of people to pick from. Fret not though, as not all is lost. GRANTCKING needs to make one more winning pick to become champion. The competition will come down to Sabalenka winning or losing her semifinal clash against Towering Karolina. Can she handle the pressure of it all depending on her?

If the Czech wins, Angoose will even walk away with victory as he would clinch it on the tiebreaker of average odds of winning picks.

Tune in on Thursday for the conclusion of this year's women's edition of Wimbledon Suicide Tennis.

Well, after many years of failure, it is pleasing to see that the famous Robert The Bruce inspirational line of "if at first you don't succeed try, try and try again" finally came good Excited

It was quite a battle though, anubis7 was likely robbed of victory by the rain before there were accusations of an imposter at large, doubts being expressed in regard to who was behind the Grantcking selections.

That particular mystery was well and truly put to bed with the events of the final day leaving no doubt that it really was Grantcking behind the selections.

With his opponent requiring snookers, only a true world class bottler could have blown it, and true to form, that is what Grantcking managed to do Laugh

Having risen to the top, I will now have to rise to the challenge of staying there.
