Tipping doubles Istanbul - 2013 world champions: Barktra/ma re

WELCOME TO ISTANBUL!



This is the tournament crowning the success of the best tipping doubles teams in 2013. Our participants this year are:

tina110 & Uranium
- champions in Indian Wells, runners-up in Wimbledon, US Open and Beijing -
come on lena & Igorche
- runners-up in Roland Garros and tipping doubles' #2 -
Barktra & ma re
- champions in Rome, Roland Garros and Cincinnati -
*Jean* & Drake1980
- champions in Miami and Wimbledon, runners-up at Australian Open -


The right to participate as replacements also have:

digor & goOudinUSA - Australian Open champions
BlackPanther. & JustPetko - winners of Toronto
mariusz pol & Mgray1966 - US Open and Beijing champions
Cooper96 & randy72391 - champions in Doha

Take notice however, that replacements will be awarded ranking points only if one (or more) of the invited teams does not participate in the tournament. Also keep in mind that playing uninvited is not possible in this tournament.


HOW TO PLAY

Playing Tipping is very easy. I will post the schedule and then you just tip who you think will win. To play, just type "in" and add a name of your partner.

e.g If the schedule was...
Errani/Vinci vs Hlavackova/Hradecka
Huber/Raymond vs Kirilenko/Petrova

This is how you would tip...
Errani/Vinci
Huber/Raymond

It is only main draw doubles matches.

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

Pick for each match should be posted before the start of that match.

For every match you also need to post your guess for the set ratio. For the final match you will also need to guess the scoreline. 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.

Also DO NOT make changes to your picks by quoting your previous post; this will make all of your changes invalid.


HOW TO SOLVE TIES

1. The player who guessed the winneing team.
2. The player who is closest in games guessed.
3. The team whose player posted the fastest in the final. If no one posted in the final, points from previous rounds are examined going backwards, until a clear advantage of one player is confirmed.


SCORING AND BONUS POINTS

9 points for each correct pick in the semifinal
10 points for correct pick in the final.
1 point for each correct set ratio (if you picked the winner)


Bonus points:

Points equivalent to Premier events (8 players and 4 teams)
1st: 150
2nd: 100
3rd/4th: 75
5th-8th: 50

HAVE FUN AND GOOD LUCK!

Re: Tipping doubles Istanbul - invitation only event

So, just in case someone missed it, for the semifinal matches you'll have to guess the set ratio and for the final match the final score (as usual). Super tie break will be played in the final.
