Tennis Tipping #01a - Brisbane, AUS | Congrats Daszmarelli, garyyoung & xieergai


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.

In case a player (i.e. the actual WTA Player) retires in a match, there's new retirement rule for 2011. The new retirement rule means that matches involving a retirement WILL count in TT, as long as the leading player is 1 set up. If players are replaced by a lucky loser after the start of Tennis Tipping, these matches will be cancelled.

New tie-break method: TB/SR Rules 2015 (determining the winner)

How to Sign-Up:

One can only play this game if he has created an account in this forum at least 3 months ago AND has at least 100 posts.

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.

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: Wenshan, day #]. Picks can be sent in anytime until the beginning of play each day. If you are in singles and doubles then you can use different picks for each if you want to. For doubles, you still tip the WTA singles matches, not the doubles! No changes can be made after the play has started.
You have to send picks before play starts, late picks wont be accepted!

In case of emergencies/pick sending problems: Only in case of circumstances that a tt player cannot send picks to the manager of the tournament one can send his picks to the below e-mail address. The board will be able to access this account and picks sent here will be counted as normal. Please note that it should ONLY be used in emergencies. Also, a person who uses this method of sending picks should alert the tournament manager and a board member as soon as possible because the account won't necessarily be checked every day.

Good Luck, your manager Lizzard11120
