Welcome to Prague!
This is the 99th tipping tournament and 21st in 2010
How to play
Playing Tipping is very easy. I will post the schedule and then you just tip who you think will win. Just type "in" to play (this will make my life easier but if you forgot to post "in" this is not the end of the world).
e.g If the schedule was...
Ivanovic vs Sharapova
V. Williams vs S. Williams
This is how you would tip...
It is only main draw singles matches.
If there's 1 point played in a match then the match counts (walkover doesn´t count).
Pick for each match should be posted before the scheduled start of that match.
For the final match you will also need to guess how many games will be played. This will work as a tiebreaker.
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.
How to solve ties
1. The player who is closest in games guessed.
2. The player who guessed the winner.
3. The player who got the most correct picks in the semi final. If the same, move backwards to quarterfinal and so on.
4. The player who posted the fastest post in the final. If no one posted in the final go backwards to the semis and so on.
Scoring and bonus points
First Round = 1 point per correct tip.
Every additional round = one point more than for the previous, per correct tip.
Your best 15 results the past 52 weeks will count towards your ranking. There are no mandarory tournaments.
One tournament will be played each week. If there is more than one on the calender the bigger one is played. If they are of the same level it will be decided later. Look in the 2010 Calender thread for more.
