Tipping #249 Istanbul l Year-end Championships


Year-end Tipping Championships 2013



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...
Ivanovic
V. Williams

It is only main draw singles matches.

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

Each pick should be posted before the start of the match in question, otherwise it'll be considered invalid.

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.



SCORING

8 points for each correct pick in Round Robin
9 points for each correct pick in Semi Final
10 points for correct pick in Final.
1 point for each correct set ratio (if you picked the winner)



BONUS POINTS


1st: 325
2nd: 225
3/4: 150

Re: Tipping #249 Istanbul l Year-end Championships

Additional information and rules



Beside writing the winner of the match you must also write the set ratio you think will happen. For example if the OOP was:
Schiavone vs Jankovic
Wozniacki vs Zvonareva

then you pick:

Schiavone 2-1
Wozniacki 2-0

The purpose is to difference you in total points. You only get points for correct set ratio if you also picked the winner.


Bonus points for Year-End Championship:


W: 180
F: 135
SF: 90
QF: 75


8 points for each correct pick in Round Robin
9 points for each correct pick in Semi Final
10 points for correct pick in Final.
1 point for each correct set ratio (if you picked the winner)

TT Singles W ITF Karuizawa'14, W ITF Istanbul'14 ||| TT Doubles W ITF Wuhan'15, W ITF Burnie'15, W ITF Midland'14, W ITF Istanbul'13, W ITF Versmold'13
Tipping W Roland Garros'15, W Budapest'13, W Rome'12, F Acapulco'14, F Bastad'13, F Indian Wells'13
Tipping doubles W Cincinnati'14, W Roland Garros'14, W Rome'14, W Madrid'14, W Miami'14, W Indian Wells'14, W Beijing'13, W US Open'13
Suicide W Miami'15, W Dubai'15, W Baku'14, W Tashkent'13 ||| FITD F Paris'14, F Auckland'14, F Luxembourg'13, F Toronto '13

So what happens when a friend or partner holds a different opinion against your favorite?
