Tipping 126: Fed Cup 2011, R2, Japan vs. Argentina day 2 OOP in post #151!

TIPPING FEDERATION CUP



Welcome to the second round of Tipping Federation Cup 2011! This is the 126th tipping event overall and 11th in 2011.

HOW TO PLAY

First of all, you have to sign-in and specify the team you'll play for. If you have played R1 (the first Fed Cup weekend, back in February), you don't have to sign-in again, unless you'd like to play for another team. New players can choose to join one of the existing teams (listed below), or select any other country. There are no restrictions regarding the number of players per team.

You do, however, have to sign-in before the start of the first match if you'd like to play for an existing team as a new player. If you are a bit late, you can still play, but for some country that still has no players representing it. Changes of team choices are possible until the start of the competition. You can switch teams as the season goes, but you will be able to transfer to an existing team only if members of that team state that they don't object you joining in.

ENTRY LIST at the moment looks like this:

AUSTRALIA: Kev., Buitenzorg, hessie
AZERBAIJAN: WTAtennis2011
BELGIUM: elle-marie
BRAZIL: Broseghini, wtatourfan
CANADA: Drake1980
CHINESE TAIPEI: coolfish1103
CROATIA: ma re
CZECH REPUBLIC: ronim1
ESTONIA: WhoAmI?
FRANCE: *Jean*, Djezonfly
GERMANY: Magdalena Ry, KeisukeHonda
GREECE: hellas719
ITALY: Ralph214, VIKtorious
LUXEMBOURG: MandyRulz
MEXICO: legionmx
NETHERLANDS: Sasja, Wrongagain
NORWAY: SamR03A
POLAND: Spain07, Beesley
RUSSIAN FEDERATION: NDee
SERBIA: BlackPanther.
UK: no-hay-igual, british_player, Inktrailer
USA: KittyTennis, Vaxey

Tipping is like Tennis Tipping but different. You don't play other people and you don't have to tip the score which makes it an easier game to play. Everyone can play!

Playing Tipping is very easy. I will post the schedule and then you just tip who you think will win.

e.g If the schedule was...
Ivanovic vs Sharapova
V. Williams vs S. Williams

This is how you would tip...
Ivanovic
V. Williams

We play only main draw singles matches and only "live" matches, so when one team gets to 3 points and wins the tie, we don't count any matches played later on.

If there's 1 point played in a match then the match counts (walkover or a pre-match retirement doesn´t count).

Deadline for posting your tips is until the scheduled start of the match in question, so check this info due to time zones etc.

Do NOT edit your post. If you want to change your picks do it in a new post. Edited posts will make all your picks invalid.

SCORING

Fed Cup semifinals: 5 points per correct tipp
World Group play-offs: 3 points per correct tipp
World Group II play-offs: 1 point per correct tipp

After all the matches of the day are played, we'll sum up all the points earned by the players of each team and divide by the number of players of that respective team. So for example, a sum of points earned by 4 players of some team during the day, will be divided by four to give the team's score.

Scores from each Fed Cup weekend will count towards the end of season team winner, but will also be taken to form continuous, 52-week team rankings. So each season the points earned last year will have to be defended. Points earned during Fed Cup weekends will not count for your individual tipping rankings (points earned playing tournaments). Fed Cup rankings and race standings after R1 can be found in the Games -> tipping section of the forum, along with all the rules.

SECOND ROUND TIES

Slovenia vs. Canada

In Lugano, Switzerland
Switzerland vs. Sweden

Great guys, but as I wrote above, IF YOU'RE ALREADY SIGNED IN, YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN, UNLESS YOU'RE CHANGING TEAMS! Sorry for shouting

So, new players and those who'd like to play for a different team do need to sign-in - others, not.

Welcome people! I'll ask current players of your desired teams to confirm to me via a private message that they don't object to you joining - after they confirm, I'll add you to these teams (rules specify that this confirmation needs to be done if you're joining an existing team; you can also play for some other country that still has no team).

Do you have to play for a country that's actually in Tier 2 of the Fed Cup?

If not, I can also play for Chinese Taipei if that's an applicable pick.

No, you can play for ANY country, be it one of those already chosen, or any that you'd like. Doesn't have to be a country that is actually competing in Fed Cup. It can be a country you are from, but it doesn't have to be, it's your choice. If you'd like to play for Chinese Taipei, that's perfectly fine and if you want I'll sign you up for that (new) team.

Sure, I'll do that! Thanks.

Done! But you should know that, since you are joining after the season has already started, you won't be able to catch up with the rest in the race for this year's title (2011 champion). But if that's not important to you, then great. Of course, you'll have a chance to win the title next year, and your team will earn points for continuous ranking, just like all others.

Any one that you want!

As I wrote in my previous post, you can play for ANY country, even if that one's actually not competing in Fed Cup (OK, you can't play for Anctartica or Mars, that's where I draw the line...). But, as I also wrote there, due to the fact that the teams listed in the initial post have already played R1, if you decide to play for some country that still hasn't competed in Tipping FC, your team doesn't stand a chance of winning the Fed Cup champions title this year. If that doesn't bother you, there's really no problem.

OK, I'll sign you up as soon as I hear with Ralph214 that he doesn't mind you joining him in the team. I've already sent him a private message this morning and am waiting for a response.
