FED Cup - rules and standings

RULES


- all the players of all the teams, send their tipps (guesses) for all the active FC ties in World groups 1 and 2
- prior to the first round each year, players can join any of the existing or form a new team
- there are no rules regarding the minimum or maximum number of players
- during the season, players can change teams or join other existing teams, but only if members who form the team in question accept this new player; completely new teams can be formed at any stage of the competition
- list of teams, along with rules, is always posted in the original post of every round of FED Cup ("Other tournaments" section of the forum)
- players who'd like to play for one of the existing teams have to sign-in before the start of the first match of the round in question
- only singles matches and only "live" matches (those that are played before the tie winner is decided) count for points
- only matches played between players listed in the original Order of play for a particular day, count for points
- both, WG and WG2 ties are played, along with their play-offs
- the sum of points made by each team is divided by the number of players representing that respective team, after each day of play
- points count for: a) race for the year-end winners and b) continuous roll-over rankings; points are not included into individual tipping rankings
- if certain teams are tied in the rankings, those with more players have an advantage over those with less
- other rules are the same as those for regular tipping tournaments

Re: FED Cup - rules and standings

After the first weekend of 2013 Fed Cup, France takes over the lead in the roll-over rankings, Russia comes back after being represented in 2011 and two teams - Italy and Chinese Taipei - lose their last points from 2012.

Re: FED Cup - rules and standings

So another Fed Cup round is behind us. There were some surprises this time, but not too many.

Two teams came (Israel and Serbia) came back to the game, after missing out on R1 in February. Although they are not really in contention for this year's championship, they can still improve on their 52-week ranking positions by coming back for the finals. Four other teams (Estonia, Brazil, UK and Spain) dropped out dropped out of the roll-over rankings and will not be included in the next round's entry list, unless they reapply.

Given the fact that in the Race there is no point defence this year's title is still completely open for grabs. Azerbaijan did a great job in this round and is closing in on Croatia who is just 10 points ahead and there are 28 points left to be won in the finals. France also moved 2 spots up and is now third, with Germany just one point behind.

This years #1 finish in the 52-week rankings is still wide open, with Croatia having a solid lead, but with having some points to defend from the same time last year as well as a lot left to win this year.

All in all, there's an interesting time ahead of us in Fed Cup for both the 2013 Race Champion and year-end #1 finish. Looking forward to meet you all there!
