Tipping 178: Fed Cup 2011, Finals, Russia vs. Czech Republic

TIPPING FEDERATION CUP



Welcome to the final round of Tipping Federation Cup 2011! This is the 178th tipping event overall and 36th 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 in February or R2 in April, 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
ESTONIA: WhoAmI?
FRANCE: *Jean*, Djezonfly
GERMANY: Magdalena Ry, KeisukeHonda
GREECE: hellas719
ITALY: Ralph214, VIKtorious
ISRAEL: ronim1
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

ALSO, during this final weekend, you will have to post your guess for the number of sets in each match. Each correct guess will bring you one additional point.

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 finals: 6 points per correct tipp + 1 per each guess of the number of sets played

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 can be found in the Games -> tipping section of the forum, along with all the rules.

THE FINAL TIE

In Moscow, Russia
Russia vs. Czech Republic

Matches will take place on the 5th and 6th of November. Complete Order of play will be posted here as soon as it is available.

Have fun and good luck!
