Re: Tennis Tipping|Fed Cup 2012|Commit teams for February!

In 2 short years I went from being USA's captain to being someone who doesn't even deserve to be picked. But I'd love to play if the captain will have me.

i look so fine, i look so sexy even with my face smashed up on the plexi

You pick the winners of all WGI and WGII matches. There is 2 singles matches on day 1 and 2 singles and 1 doubles match on day 2, like in real Fed Cup. In doubles you pick the winners of the doubles match.

but somehow I can't help from hoping
to find someone to talk to
who likes the way I am
who when he sees me wants to again

Okay. Thanks that makes more sense. But I dont get the tiebreaks. And do you have to guess the scores or just who wins. They should have used a real life example in the rules. They are unclear

Have a look in any Tennis Tipping thread and see how it works. Basically you tip the scores for 3 matches, the set ratios (2-0 or 2-1) for a further 12, and then just the winner for any other matches left over (in Fed Cup that's 1 match).

There are real life examples here.

Psst. Kev. wants to play for Australia.

Okay. So this is how it works.
These are my tips for the australian open round of 32 this year, for example:
1. Wozniacki 61 61
2. Li Na 63 62
3. Radwanska 64 62
4. Jankovic 2-0
5. Clijsters 2-0
6. Goerges 2-0
7. Azarenka 2-0
8. Bratchikova 2-1
9. Zvonareva 2-1
10. Williams 2-0
11. Kuznetsova 2-0
12. Sharapova 2-0
13. Cirstea 2-0
14. Zheng 2-1
15. Ivanovic 2-0
16. Kvitova

First, they count who got the most matches correct. then if both players are tied on the amount of matches predicted correctly, then they go by the closest set ratio. Then scorelines etc.

Thanks for the help by the way

Yup. Just read the rules thread(s) in the TT subforum.

Number of set ratios predicted correctly, actually. But yes, you're on the right track.

Dave B and I will do doubles if there's space on the US team still

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier
NEVER say "I don't care who wins, I just want good tennis"
