Tennis Tipping #98 / Taipei, TPE 100K+H -- Congrats to Sexysova and Chrono./Drake1980

Tennis Tipping | ITF Taipei

November 2-8, 2009
ITF $100,000+H, Tournament website






Welcome to Taipei! The 98th tournament of the Tennis Tipping season. Read the rules and sign-up information and then decide to join!

What is Tennis Tipping?

In the game, participants pick the winners of all main draw matches and are placed in a knock-out system. That means each participant plays a different participant and whoever predicted the winner of most matches correctly, moves on to the next round. The same applies for doubles, but you're in a team format and your scores are combined.

Note:
- In case of a tie, a tie-breaker will decide who moves on to the next round.
New tie-break method: Tie Break Rules updated 2009 (still to be revised)

- In case a player (i.e. the actual WTA Player) retires in a match, this match will not be counted. If players are replaced by a lucky loser after the start of Tennis Tipping, these matches will be cancelled.

How to Sign-Up:

Just post here that you would like to play. You can only play one tournament per week. Entries will be based on ranking. Everyone can commit.

More information: http://www.tennisforum.com/643-tennis-tipping/362155-tennis-tipping-general-rules-post14383865.html

How to send in picks:

Picks can be sent in as soon as the draws are ready. Remember, you pick a winner inevery match! Picks should be sent by PM, so that your opponent does not know your picks. Picks should be titled: [TT: Something, day #]. Picks can be sent in anytime until the beginning of play each day. If you're still in both singles & doubles, you use the same tips for both. For doubles, you still tip the WTA singles matches, not the doubles!No changes can be made after the play has started.



Good Luck!

Recap of final day

Great final day in Taipei. We have our winners.
Sexysova decided to take a risk and it payed off, he is the winner of the first ever Taipei TT tournament!
Picking Chan over Morita was brilliant decision in this clutch moment.
We wondered if he would lose his head in the final moment but it didn't happen and he remained unbeaten.
Fantastic result and good indicator for what will happen in 2010, surely great things ahead.
Same could be said for the finalist Daniela-Is-Mine, great week and he can also looks forward to next season.
It is always hard to go to final day of the final with minimum advantage, pressure is bigger and it is hard to guess what tactic opponent will choose.
Still he has to be pleased with points here, will maybe push him in top 100.

Winners of doubles tournament are third seeds Chrono./Drake1980.
They managed to surprise first seeds here and win the title. Great pick in the end.
Chan certainly wasn't favorite and yet you just have to take risk and pick underdogs if you want to win titles, especialy against such good opponents like Chris 84/SloKid.
It was amazing week for the winners, beating world's top 2 teams and showing that they have great chemistry. Hopefully they will play more in the future.
As for Chris 84/Slokid it was fantastic week but they won't be happy with it.
With such long career and always at top you have high standards and it is totaly understandable.
Still they win 110 points as finalists which is a nice consolation prize.

Thanks to all players who played here, I hope everyone had some fun.
Congrats to Sexysova, Chrono./Drake1980, Daniela-Is-Mine and Chris 84/SloKid! Great week for you all!



Recap of first day of final

It was typical first day of the finals. Nobody gained significant advantage but opportunities were there. In singles final both picked Chang in two which was not a good pick as Morita won that match, big opportunity wasted here. Other pick was correct for both, Chan won her match in three sets against Mladenovic. Daniela-Is-Mine gained advantage in set ratios by guessing it right. This is hardly a big advantage as final match decides it all, still it was very good pick as one would think that Mladenovic would be able to take a set at least.

In doubles final it's identical situation. Chris84/SloKid and Chrono. all picked Chan in three sets while Drake1980 picked her in two. It is not very significant avantage but still they are going into final day as clear favorites like before the final. Here also nobody picked Morita, first seed at this tournament. If one of the teams picked her it would have been decisive advantage.


Sunday preview - finals


1) Daniela-Is-Mine (USA) vs. Sexysova (CZE)

Going into final day with only advantage 1/0 in set ratio doesn't guarantee anything. Tomorow is new day and final match is the most important one. Morita against Chan. It will be interesting to see who will finalists choose. Sexysova has to make different pick from Daniela-Is-Mine, at least different set ratio. Very close match between two best players this week worthy of final showdown.

2) (1) Chris84/SloKid (IRL/SLO) vs. (3)Chrono./Drake1980 (CHN/CAN)

This is it, final day, there is no room for any calculations left. If you want to win you have to make right decision and hope it is enough. One opportunity is already gone, now second one, last one will decide it all. Will any of the teams be ready to take some risks. Certanly what is expected from Chrono./Drake1980.

Recap of semifinals day

Great semifinal day is behind us and we got our finalists ready for the 2 days showdown.

In first all American semifinal it was another close battle for hankqq but this time he ended up losing it.
Both had 3 correct picks but Daniela-Is-Mine had more set ratios correct. Perfect week for Daniela-Is-Mine, had great form during whole week taking out players in good form and all matches were very close.
hankqq will maybe regret that he didn't pick Mladenovic over Ferguson, it was his big chance. Still great week for him too.

In other semifinal situation was similar, tough, close match but Drake1980 couldn't stop Sexysova from advancing to his first ever singles final, one of many in the future surely.
It was identical scoreline like in the first semifinal, bot with 3 correct picks and set ratios 3-2 for the winner. Definitely, seeing Sexysova in the final isn't a surprise. During whole week his picks were of great quality and he beat some great players on the way.
Drake1980 won't be unhappy with reaching semifinal, still good effort. Maybe same as hankqq only regret would be not picking Mladenovic, big opportunity for win.

In doubles it seemed like it would be a classic final between two best teams in ranking but Chrono./Drake1980 didn't like that idea.
They took out number 1 team MH0861/James prety comprehensivly with 7 correct picks as opposed to 4. Finaly they showed their great potential in bright light.
Smart picks from both players in team were more than enough for slightly weaker MH0861/James team then usual.
Especially great pick came from Chrono as he was the only player in that match who picked Mladenovic. Good week for MH0861/James but they surely won't be pleased with it.

In other semifinal there were no surprises. Number 1 seeded team and second in rankings were again in fantastic form giving no chances to lucian_iasi/tennisfan_77 to even think they could win.
Chris84/SloKid had all picks correct while their opponents had only half of it. Amazing form and yet another final for this long lasting team. Good experience for lucian_iasi/tennisfan_77, surely next time it will be much closer, great week anyway.


Saturday preview - finals


1) Daniela-Is-Mine (USA) vs. Sexysova (CZE)

Everyone is looking forward to the first day of this final which often can be crucial so both players will have to think carefuly who they pick.
You don't want to give any advantage to your opponent when there are only 3 matches to decide the winner.
Daniela-Is-Mine is hoping to win second challenger title of career and the way things went whole week everything is possible.
On the other side this is first final for Sexysova and if you don't win it first time it gets harder and harder each new time.
However Sexysova's form has been fantastic so far and surely he won't lose his head in the final moment.

1) (1) Chris84/SloKid (IRL/SLO) vs. (3)Chrono./Drake1980 (CHN/CAN)

Not exactly expected final, but when you look at whole week results then it is.
Certainly Chris84/SloKid's participation in final isn't surprising.
It is what everyone expected at the beginning of the tournament and they totaly fulfilled those high expectations.
Of course their goal is to win here and everything else wouldn't be good enough.
Chrono./Drake1980 on the other hand didn't have so much experience playing together and they needed some time to finaly show their true colours.
Luckily just in time for the final.
First day will be very important cause nobody wants to get down so quickly and lose all hope before final match.
It will be interesting to see if Chrono./Drake1980 can repeat great performance from semifinals cause we all know that Chris84/SloKid can and probably will.

Recap of quarterfinals day

No more seeds in singles draw!
Most people would think at first that seeds just played bad and maybe weren't motivated enough but it was quite opposite.
All matches had great quality picks and only small differences decided it.

Match of the day was between 4th seed MH0861 and Sexysova. We expected great battle and they delivered it cause both had all picks correct and all set ratios correct! Next is TB1 and guess what, it was identical from both. You would think that in such hard fought match younger player with less experience would faulter and lose, but no it was Sexysova who had won with better TB2 score. Great win over big name and what a confidence booster. MH0861 showed great class warmly congratulating his younger opponent.

Having all picks correct didn't also help second seed James to get through to SF. Another inspiring performance from unseeded player. Drake1980 won with all 4 correct set ratios while James had 3. Really great win for Canadian and big name scalp, one to treasure.

In top half of the draw hankqq continued to impress. After beating first seed in previous round he got enough confidence to get through this hard match against juki. They both had all picks correct and same number of set ratios. Decisive was SR1 at the end in favor of hankqq.

Last player advancing to semifinals was Daniela-Is-Mine. American was able to keep great form from the start of tournament and it was enough to beat Xiu ZhiFu in yet another hard fought match with all picks correct. Decisive were set ratios, 4-3 for Daniela-Is-Mine.

In doubles we have completly opposite situation with only seeds left in tournament.
Match between first seeds Chris 84/SloKid and Sexysova/tiffanykatya. totaly fulfilled our expectations. All 4 players had correct picks and only set ratios made difference. It was 8-7 for world number two team. Nothing to be ashamed for Sexysova/tiffanykatya. who will probably get many more opportunities in the future for revenge. Chris 84/SloKid remained favorites for the title here.

4th seeded lucian_iasi/tennisfan_77 had the easiest win of the day over hellas719/joe87. It was just a solid performance and safe passage to semifinals. tennisfan_77 was the only player who had all 4 correct picks in this match.

Next great quality match was between second seeded MH0861/James and Boreaz/MarrymeYungJan. again all correct picks but set ratios in favor of world number one team. It was an excellent fight from Boreaz/MarrymeYungJan, nobody really expected such a close match. Tournament lost its only home player. MH0861/James getting closer to the title.

Third seeds chrono./Drake1980 advanced to semifinals with win over No mercy!!!/Daniela-Is-Mine. Sweet hard fought win with nice reward: semifinal for this good doubles team with greater potential.




Friday preview - semifinal matches


1) hankqq (USA) vs. Daniela-Is-Mine (USA)

What a nice ocassion for these two players. Getting through to this stage with some great wins. Certanly hankqq was a bit more impressive as he beat number 1 seed while Daniela-Is-Mine didn't have to face a seed but did beat players who were in great form. Winner will have a great chance for the title.

2) Sexysova (CZE) vs. Drake1980 (CAN)

Seems like Sexysova is finaly playing against easier opponent after having to beat two seeds, but it isn't quite so. Drake1980 has enough experience and quality to beat anyone which he proved in previous round. Will he have enough experience to stop this young shooting star in top form? Well the only thing sure is that it won't be easy.

3) (1) Chris84/SloKid (IRL/SLO) vs. (4) lucian_iasi/tennisfan_77 (ROM/CRO)

Doubles tournament reached a point of showdown between seeds.
Nice experience for lucian_iasi/tennisfan_77 playing semifinal against TT legends. It is a hard task for them, nobody is expecting a win. On the other side Chris84/SloKid will be hoping to get to another final this year without too many difficulties as they were much more impressive so far.

4) (3) chrono./Drake1980 (CHN/CAN) vs. (2) MH0861/James (USA/NED)

It's time for chrono./Drake1980 to live up to that greater potential and give some tough time to world's best team. After surviving tough first round and quarterfinal they should be ready for it. MH0861/James won't let it happen though. They want title here.


Recap of second day

Finaly tournament came completely alive with start of doubles.
First seeds Chris 84/SloKid had no problems advancing to quarterfinals, same as second seeds MH0861/James and forth seeds lucian_iasi/tennisfan_77. Match of the day was as expected between third seeds Chrono./Drake1980 and Stiles./hankqq. Both had 7 correct picks so it all came down to set ratios. Again seeded team went through with 5-4. We got our answer who is maybe the weaker link in team Drake1980/Stiles. Team Boreaz/MarrymeYungJan had a nice, convincing win over tangchenbo2008/lovehotel, so tournament still has home player in draw.
In singles first seed Stiles. couldn't find good form again and lost with another weak performance. hankqq proved once again that he is very dangerous layer who isn't afraid to beat top players.
Sexysova was a creator of another upset ousting 6th seed leoneo. It was confortable win for this very promising young player. Broseghini's winning streak ended but it wasn't surprise that MH0861 was the one who ended it.
Second seed James barely beat tiffanykatya. in a high quality match. It will be interesting to see their next encounter.


Thursday preview - the most interesting matches


1) (4) MH0861 (USA) vs. Sexysova (CZE)

After two impressive wins from both, it is time for this highly anticipated clash to show us who is in better form. Young up-and-coming player aginst one of the proven stars is always a guarantee of great match.

2) hankqq (USA) vs. juki (BEL)

After beating first seed, hankqq won't have it much easier in the next round facing player who had best score of second round. juki already beat two tough opponents and his picks are of great quality.

3) Boreaz/MarrymeYungJan (CHN/TWI) vs. (2) MH0861/James (USA/NED)

First real test for second seeds after getting through first round too easily. Tournament organizer will hope that home player MarrymeYungJan can stay in tournament as long as possible. Another thing making this clash interesting is "nice" verbal exchange between Boreaz and MH0861 that happened courtside yesterday when MH0861 said out loud that tournament lost diva nobody ever heard of. Probably not very well taken from self proclaimed diva.

4) (1) Chris 84/SloKid (IRL/SLO) vs. Sexysova/tiffanykatya. (CZE/HKG)

First seeds against young promising players. This match will show us how far Sexysova/tiffanykatya. are away from the top. Talent is there, only experience is needed. Certanly not an easy match for Chris 84/SloKid.

Recap of first day

First day brought us many interesting matches with some surprising results.
The biggest shock was exit of 3rd seed Chris 84 who was in solid form but his opponent tangchenbo2008 was inspired today reaching one of the best scores of the day.
Other seed casualties were hellas719, lovehotel and iDaniela.
First seed Stiles. barely scraped through, but win is a win. It was great opportunity for adrygf but as it often happens top players win also when playing bad.
Broseghini continued winning streak with another solid performance. Great quality match was between joe87 and Sexysova, both had 10 correct picks so set ratios were decisive. Tough loss for joe87 and great win for Sexysova.

Wednesday preview - the most interesting matches


1) (1) Stiles. (GEO) vs. hankqq (USA)

After weak performance in first round Stiles. has to face his doubles partner and very dangerous player hankqq who had great first
round score. It's time to step up to the plate and pick smart for the win!

2) (4) MH0861 (USA) vs. Broseghini (BRA)

What a great time for Broseghini, winning in Poitiers last week and winning here first round. But next up is third seed and one of TT stars MH0861 who had one of best best scores of first round. Tough match for both.

3) (3)Chrono./Drake1980 (CHN/CAN) vs. Stiles./hankqq (GEO/USA)

Tough first round for 3rd seeds.
What makes it even more interesting is that Drake1980 and Stiles. usualy play together at tournaments. Maybe this match will show us which one of them is weaker link in that team.

4) Boreaz/MarrymeYungJan (CHN/TWI) vs. tangchenbo2008/lovehotel (BLR/CHN)

After losing in singles the only home player MarrymeYungJan will have another chance to score a win. Paired up with Boreaz, self proclaimed "Diva" against tangchenboo2008 and lovehotel who had better first day making them favorites in this match.
