Tennis Tipping General Rules 2016 | Changes in Red | Check pages 1-5

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 of a tie, new SR/TB rules will decide who moves on to the next round.

Retirements:

In case a player (i.e. the actual WTA Player) retires in a match, the match WILL count in TT, as long as the first point has been played, but they do NOT COUNT for SRs, ISR (giving a set to a winner) or for TB Points decisions but they do count for TBs in which players or teams picked different winners.

If players are replaced by a lucky loser after the start of Tennis Tipping, these matches will be cancelled.

Draw Sizes:

Tournaments should have a draw which has the same size as the real one. Qualifying draws should have room for 16 players in weeks with 4 TT tournaments.
PM and P5 tournaments obviously have bigger draws, specific rules should be decided by the board members.

2-days QF: For tournaments with a 32 Player MD Field and 7 MD days (Monday-Sunday) we will have 2 days of QF.
So if there is a Sunday final, Qualies starts Saturday and MD starts Monday.
If day one has less than four matches in total or no main draw matches, round 1 becomes a 2-day round.

TT Schedule at Grand Slams:

Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open:

(GS Qualifying R1) ~ TT Qualifying Round 1 Singles and Doubles

(GS R32) ~ TT R16 Singles and Doubles
(GS R16) ~ TT QF Singles and Doubles
(GS QF) ~ TT SF Singles and Doubles

(GS R32) ~ TT R16 Singles and Doubles
(GS R16) ~ TT QF Singles and Doubles
(GS QF) ~ TT SF Singles and Doubles
(GS SF & F) ~ TT Final Singles and Doubles

Tournament Managers:

Managers should start their "managing career" with managing challengers
Only high-profiled managers will run slams and bigger tournaments
Managers/User who post the OOP should post a link of the responsible personīs username

Example:
Quote:
All players send picks to Michael!
Rankings System:

Best of 20. This means that your best 20 results throughout the year will be counted for your ranking. When two or more players have the same number of ranking points, the tie for the ranking position will be decided according to the following priorities:

Code:
a) The player with the most total points from all tournaments
b) The player with the fewest number of tournaments
c) The highest number of points from one single tournament, then if needed, the second highest and so on
d) name (for singles; doubles players stay tied)
Wild Cards 2016:

Defending champions in singles and doubles will get a Main Draw WC at all WTA tournaments (incl Grand Slams) but there wonīt be any Wild Cards for WTA 125 and Challenger tournaments.
People who want to use a WC have to request it in the respective tournament thread (same deadlines as for regular entries) and the tournament manager has to inform the TT Board about it, which will make sure that the WC is justified.
The WC spot will be cleared once the 2nd deadline of a tournament is over, in this case the first player/team from the qualifying list moves into Main Draw.


Determining Lucky Losers:

In the end of the final qualifying round, managers should post a list of the losers who had the highest scores in that round (If the score is the same you should use the TB/SR system to order the players). Those are the first players to be called in case someone doesn’t send his/her picks.
Players who had a BYE in 1st round and didnīt send for FQR will be at the end of the LL List only (behind those who sent and lost in 1st q-round)! The order of those in the LL list will be decided by ranking then.

Deadline for Picks:

The deadline for accepting picks is the time at which the matches are scheduled to start. NO PICKS will be accepted if they are sent after that point.

Example:

Quote:
Deadline: 10:00am
All picks sent until 09:59.59am will be accepted.
Picks sent at 10:00.00am or later will not be accepted.
Managers are allowed to make the deadline earlier if they are not able to post the differences at the time when the play starts. However, all picks which are sent between "manager's deadline" and real start of play have to be counted. When the differences are posted, you can't change your picks anymore.

Example:

Quote:
Manager sets the deadline to 10am because (s)he needs to post differences earlier but the play (the first match) starts at 11am. All picks received between 10am-11am have to be counted.
If a manager put a "wrong" deadline and play already started before manager deadline is over, then all picks which are sent between the real deadline and the manager deadline will count as well but matches which already started wonīt be counted.
Note that Tournament countback is not always useable in this case.
This rule wonīt affect matches in which both players already sent their picks before the real deadline has passed, in this case all matches will count.
If the start of play is not defined exactly then deadline to send picks should be the time when the first match of the event starts.

Challengers:

Top 30 singles players and top 30 doubles players are now considered to be "late entrants" for all challenger/futures tt tournaments. the order of LE priority which they gain will be dependent on their reverse rankings (ie world #30 has first LE priority, world #1 has last)
Top 30 Late Entries are not able to be seeded (Qualifying or Main Draw)
If there arenīt enough players in the draw and Top 30 Late Entries have to be seeded then they should be seeded in reversed order.
Players with a Protected Ranking of 30 or better in singles or doubles wonīt be considered as LE if they enter a Challenger tournament with their Protected Ranking.


Protected rankings:

In order to be eligible for a Protected Ranking, one must have been out of competition a minimum of six months and a maximum of two years. The eligible player must apply for a PR in the „Protected Ranking“ thread before re-entering TT competition.

A player has one year from the date he/she returns to competition to use the Protected Ranking and may enter a maximum of 2 Grand Slams and 2 Premier Mandatories as part of his/her eight Protected Ranking Tournaments.

For seedings only the actual ranking of a player matters and players don't have to use their PR if they get into the draws with their actual ranking anyway.

Number of commitments:

Minimal number of commitments for a tournament to run is 16 players/8 teams.

Fed Cup:

Players who play Fed Cup are allowed to play a Challenger or WTA tournament in the same week.


TB/SR Rules (for detailed information click HERE):

SR RULE: Every match on the OOP will be a SR match

You CAN’T send a SR in your TB different from the SR you decided to send first. If you send a SR different from your TB (Example: 2-0 6-3 4-6 7-6) that pick will be counted but the SR/TB won’t.

CB/”Looking Forward”: In Case everything is tied after the use of the TB’s use tournament Countback (CB) as a manner of untying things. If, after the use of CB everything is still tied the players will send for R2 of their current tournament AND for the next day's OOP of whichever other tournament is selected.

Where two players play each other and both fail to send picks in singles, then countback is used to split them and determine a winner (except for first round of Q or MD, of course).

If you have a bye at any stage of the tournament, you should still send picks because if you do not, this will go against you in case of countback later on in the tournament.

Number of Events Per Week:

One can only play one event per week which includes (giving) walkovers or being replaced by an ALT.

It is not allowed to play another tournament during the same week, after being accepted into the draw of any of the tournaments. That includes withdrawing after the draw is made and not sending picks.
Alternates are allowed to send picks and (in case they don't get in) play another tournament that week.

Sending picks for someone else:

Not allowed

Commitments:

Entries will be based on ranking (rankings from two weeks before the start of the tournament)
Tournament thread posted not later than Sunday (two weeks before start of the tournament)
Players have at least 8 days (from Sunday till Sunday) to commit to the tournament and this will be done by ranking.

First entry deadline for Singles is always Sunday 6 pm current time in Europe (CET or CEST).
The day before TT qualifying begins is the 2nd deadline for changes (the exact time is up to the tournament manager) and the draws are made after that.
Doubles players have ca. two weeks (from the Sunday when the thread is opened until the 2nd and final deadline) to commit to the tournament.
There aren’t Late Entries in doubles anymore (except for the Top30 LEs in challengers obviously), everyone who commits after the Final deadline for doubles will be considered as ALT.

A single entry post by one of the members of a doubles team is enough to commit the whole team to the doubles competition.
The post of the commitment must be clear and made by one of the player of the team.

Example for Antwerp (Quali starts 7th and MD starts 9th February):

Quote:
Manager opens thread for Antwerp on Sunday, 25th January
First deadline for Singles: Sunday, 2nd February (6pm CET)
Final deadline for Singles and Deadline for Doubles: Friday, 6th February
Draws will be made straight after the Final Deadline
EL and Seeds will be based on rankings from 26th January
Late Entries:

Everyone who commits after the first entry deadline in singles will be considered as Late Entry.
LEs, who commit after the 1st deadline will go to the bottom of the Entry List (at ITF tournaments behind the Top 30 entries which are automatically counted as LEs as well).
Late entries should be sorted according to the commitment order.
Everyone who commits after the Final deadline will be ALT.
Normal Late Entries (not top 30 LEs) can be seeded and can have BYEs!

Example for 32 MD:

Quote:
- for example 26,30 or 34 entries on Sunday after 1st deadline is over.
- Manager should fill up to 44 players (28 direct MD entries + 16 QD) with late entrants (if LEs available obviously)
- 45th entry and/or all those who commit after the final deadline is over will be ALTs.
Managers have to extend the final deadline only, if there are still spots available in the Main Draw after the second deadline, the first deadline is always Sunday 6 PM CET/CEST!

Maximum number of direct Main Draw entries (incl. SE/WC) is always 28 (14 for doubles), for bigger draws 56,112 or 116 (28 or 56 for doubles)
All further players have to be in the Qualifying Draw, even if that means that players in the Q-Draw get a direct BYE into the MD (in this case players obviously do not gain any points for qualifying).


If I have less than 32 players at the latest possible commitment deadline then highest ranked players on the Entry List will receive a BYE (example: 20 entrants in a 32 draw size 1st round => The 8 seeds + players ranked 9-12 (Top 30 LEs are always at the bottom of that List) get a BYE

Double commitment (player commits to two different tournaments in the same week):

Before the 1st deadline on Sunday, 6pm CET players can commit to any tournament, withdraw from there and commit to another tournament without being a LE.
After the 1st deadline players have 24 hours time to withdraw from events of their choice.
If the player is still on two different Entry Lists once the Withdrawal Deadline (Monday, 6pm CET/CEST) is over, the player receives an official warning from the TT board.
Is the infraction noticed before the tournaments start, only the first commitment will be valid and no punishment is applied.
If the double commitment is not noticed by anyone before the draws are made, points gained by the player in any of the two tournaments will not be considered and the player will be replaced with ALTs/LLs (only possible if the player didnīt win a round already in that tournament).

If a player, who received an official warning before, is again on two different Entry Lists once the Withdrawal deadline is over, then this player gets disqualified immediately and wonīt be allowed to play any tournament in that week.
After that the warning expires and the user will receive a warning again before getting disqualified.
All warnings expire at the end of the year and all players will start from zero again once the new season starts with tournament 1.


A list of players who received a warning or got disqualified can be found here

Challengers in 2nd week of Grand Slams and Indian Wells/Miami:

Players who reached 4th round in singles or/and 3rd round in doubles at Grand Slams are automatically out of all ITF tournaments which take place in the 2nd week of the events mentioned above.

The ITFs in the 2nd week of Indian Wells will have Final Deadline on Sunday 6pm CET always, those of Miami on Saturday 6pm CET, which means that all players who reached 4th round in singles or/and 3rd round in doubles are automatically out of all ITF tournaments in the 2nd week as well.


Missing Someone's Commitment:

In the case that you miss someone's commitment while managing a tournament he/she will be topping the ALT or LL lists.

Commit in someone else:

You can't commit in someone else. You can always commit in only yourself in singles and your doubles team. Difference is in doubles where you commit in your team and your partner doesn't have to confirm it.

Alternates/Lucky Losers:

If someone's opponent doesn't send his/her picks, the opponent gets a walkover.
If there's ALT/LL available, then this ALT/LL replaces the opponent who didn't send his/her picks.
LL1/ALT1 replaces opponent of the lowest placed player of the Entry List in the draw.
LL4/ALT4 ( if there are 4 people on the list, for example) replaces opponent of the highest placed player of the Entry List in the draw.

Example (with 3 LL):

Quote:
(1) AdeyC (GBR) vs. LL3
(5) DJDVD (NED) vs. LL2
Adrian. (GER) vs. LL1
Matches where neither send should be replaced first:

ALT#1/LL#1 vs ALT#2/LL#2

LL#1 vs LL#4 and LL#2 vs LL#3 if there are two such matches etc.
And then rest of the LL are placed against the players who did send (but opponents did not)
If more spots than ALTs/LLs available, then place ALTs/LLs in ranking order.
That means that the highest ranked player of the Entry List, whose opponent didn't send, gets a walkover.
Note that Top 30 LEs in Challengers are always at the bottom of the Entry List and therefore don't get a walkover even if they have a better ranking than none Top 30 players.

Where there is a 1st round match in which BOTH players/teams do not send picks, the following will happen:

1) 2 LLs or 2 ALTs will replace the players
2) where only 1 LL/ALT is available, that LL replaces one of the players, the No.1 seed's opponent replaces the other player, and the No.1 seed receives a walkover
3) where no LL/ALT is available, the opponents of both the No.1 and No.2 seeds move to that part of the draw and both No.1 and No.2 seeds receive a walkover
4) If the No.1 or No.2 seeds didnīt send picks then the opponents of No.3, No.4 or No.5 seeds etc. will move to that part of the draw and No.3/No.4/No.5 seeds will receive a walkover
5) If more matches are in the same circumstances, the opponents of the lower seeded or highest placed unseeded players of the Entry List will fill in the draw in the appropriate order

Example: (for further examples please click HERE)!

Quote:
Original Draw (Non Senders in RED)

00:00 | (1) garyyoung/xieergai (CHN/CHN) vs. MikBs/Med.Nico (ITA/SUI)
00:00 | Allez-Alejo/Tuckii (USA/FRA) vs. (3) DJDVD/Freak3yman84 (NED/USA)
00:00 | (2) histery/diego36arg (ROU/ARG) vs. Xiu ZhiFu/Fantasy Hero (CHN/ITA)
00:00 | saarsngg/Ekin (SIN/CHN) vs. (4) Meelis/SodaPop (EST/SIN)

2 ALTs available

2 ALTs replace Allez-Alejo/Tuckii and DJDVD/Freak3yman84
Opponents of 1st seeds and opponents of 2nd seeds move to the other part of the draw where both teams did not send picks and 1st and 2nd seeds will receive a walkover.

New Draw

00:00 | (1) garyyoung/xieergai (CHN/CHN) vs. walkover
00:00 | ALT1 vs. ALT2
00:00 | (2) histery/diego36arg (ROU/ARG) vs. walkover
00:00 | MikBs/Med.Nico (ITA/SUI) vs. Xiu ZhiFu/Fantasy Hero (CHN/ITA)
In Doubles Draws teams already get replaced if one player of a team did not send picks, if there arenīt LLs/ALTs available then the opponents receive a walkover.

Opponents of players/teams who did not send picks will receive a walkover in all 1 Day Round matches (incl. Non-1st round matches)
Teams/Players can only get replaced on a 1st day of a two days 1st round
Teams/Players who did not send picks are allowed to stay in the draw (and still have a chance to win) whenever there is a two days round (in non 1st round matches)

Matches (not 1st round) in which only one player of each team sent picks will be played as one vs. one
In Matches (not 1st round) in which only one of four players sent, the one who send picks will receive a walkover


Sending Picks:

You MUST send picks to the manager in order for them to count.
If you attempt to send picks to the manager and the PM fails, then your picks will count as long as you can provide evidence that the picks were sent in time. If you cannot, then such picks will not count. If you send to your doubles partner, but forget to send to the manager, these picks will NOT count.

Note that sending picks in an incorrect format can lead to point penalties, you can find more information about this on Page 3 of the Rules Thread.

Where a player sends picks to the person who posts the OOP, then even when it is clearly marked who the PM should be sent to, if the player sends his picks to the person who posted the OOP or any other understandable person (eg the regular assistant manager) then picks have to be accepted for play as long as they are forwarded to the rightful recipient (ie the manager) before the deadline for picks to be in (please note that this excludes doubles partners).

Picks canīt be accepted where a player attempts to send picks to the manager but spells the name wrongly in cases where the manager has posted the OOP.

Example:

Quote:
Michael! posts the OOP and clearly states that picks have to be sent to him.
Chris 84 sends picks to Michael. instead, such picks will NOT be counted.
Emergency E-Mail Address: tennistipping@hotmail.com

If for some reason you cannot send to the manager, then send to the emergency TT board email address (tennistipping@hotmail.com).
In this case that you have to send your picks to the emergency email, please aware the manager of the tournament and at least one board member.

Rules for TT Olympics 2016 in Rio:


Every player can play for the nation he was ranked for in the 2015 year-end-rankings (in this case the rankings from 9th November 2015) or he played Fed Cup for between 2012 and 2016.
New players who will start playing in 2016 are allowed to use the nation they started with.

People have to sign in in the tournaments-thread and have to mention for which country they play.

There is a maximum of 4 singles players and 2 doubles-teams for each country.
The doubles players can be differnt from the singles ones, so 8 players in total is possible for every country (depends on the ranking of course)


Round Robin (RR) Events:


Qualifying for YEC:

Highest ranked players/teams determined by a ranking composed by the best 20 results that the players/teams have done throughout the year. Top 8 players and Top 8 teams shall qualify.
The format will be two groups (4 players in each group) for singles and two groups (4 teams in each group) for doubles

Qualifying for WET (WTA Elite Trophy):

12 players (from 9th to 20th place of the 2016 TT race) round robin singles format (four groups of three players, then single-elimination semifinals and final), and 12 double pairs from 9th to 20th place of 2016 TT Race (four groups of three pair, then single-elimination semifinals and final)
YEC ALTs who didnīt get in are obviously allowed to play this event as well


Qualifying for Challenger YEC:

Exact date of the Challenger YEC will be announced during the year, it will probably take place in the week after the WET and will feature the Top 8 challenger players and Top 8 teams of the year.
WTA 125 tournaments will count for the Challenger race as well.
People who played in the YEC or WET are INELIGIBLE for this event.
They can play singles of one and doubles of the other, but not singles in both, etc.
The format will be two groups (4 players in each group) for singles and two groups (4 teams in each group) for doubles.

General Rules of the RR Events:

Qualifiers and ALTs will have to confirm their participation in the respective threads, Commitment deadline will be Sunday, 3pm local time before the event starts.
Tournament managers should inform players about their possible participation as soon as it is sure that they qualified for the event.

The situation with ALTs will remain the same. If you wish to be an ALT for YEC, WET or Challenger YEC then you canīt play in a challenger in the same week.
Maximal number of ALTs for the RR events is 4 (4 ALTs for Singles and 4 ALTs for Doubles)

Players or Teams (one player per team is enough) who fail to send picks during the RR rounds of the tournament will be permanently replaced by alternates.
Players or Teams who got replaced during the RR rounds still have the chance to qualify for the next stage if they scored more points than her RR opponents.
Players or Teams are allowed to stay in the draw when there are no ALTs available and still have a theoretical chance to win the match.

If somebody does not send for the semifinal then they will be replaced by the 3rd/2nd place finisher from their group.
If somebody does not send for the final then they will be replaced by the player/team they defeated in the semifinal.

If doubles partners are drawn to the same singles group then they have to play against each other in the first first round (RR1)

The TB rules remain the same as for the regular tournaments.

The winner and the runner-up of each group will be determined by the following tie-breaker:

Quote:
1) Greatest number of wins
2) Head-to-head results if only two (2) players are tied
3) If three (3) players are tied, then:
a) Number of correct picks.
b) If (a) produces one (1) superior player (first place), or one (1) inferior player (third place), and the two (2) remaining players are tied, the tie between those two (2) players shall be broken by head-to-head record.
c) Number of correct SRs.
d) Number of correct ISRs


Special Exempts (SEs 2016)


In 2016 every International tournament will have space for 2 Special Exempts ( 1 for Singles and 1 for Doubles)
Challenger Race Standings from certain periods will determine the holders of the Spots

All managers of International Tournaments should have space for 1 SE for Singles and Doubles.
SE holders have to request their SE till Monday 6PM CET/CEST (24 hours after the first deadline).
If they donīt request their SE in time or they don't need their SE as they are in MD anyway, then the SE gets transferred to the SE ALTs (the next person/team in the race), who can request it until 2nd deadline of a tournament.
SE spot will be cleared if it isnīt used once the 2nd deadline of a tournament is over.


In case of a tie between players/teams the order will be determined by this:

1. The highest number of points from one single challenger tournament during the period, then if needed, the second highest and so on
2. Number of challengers played during the period

TT Code of Conduct


1. General

1.1 TT is a game where the best standards of sportsmanship are expected.

1.2 This code of conduct is intended to raise awareness of acceptable behaviour in TT threads.

1.3 By entering into any tournament a player agrees to accept this code, whether or not he has actually read it.

1.4 The code will apply to all TT tournaments, including exhibitions and friendlies.

1.5 This code will take effect when the first tournament thread of the 2016 season is opened. It will then be subject to possible amendments.

1.6. The TT Board shall be responsible for the interpretation of this code, and for taking any action necessary under it, and their decision shall be final.

1.7 Where required by the context “he” shall be read as “he/she” and “player” shall be read as “player or players”


2. The Manager

2.1 The manager will be aware of the Time Zone for his tournament, and its relationship to CET/CEST

2.2 The manager will attempt to volunteer for tournaments which best fit in with his personal commitments.

2.3 Except in an emergency a manager will not manage more than one tournament in any week.

2.4 If opened in “skeleton” form the thread will be updated at least 2 days before the first deadline. In the meantime the manager will respond promptly to any queries by players/potential players.

2.5 The entry lists will be updated at least one day before the first deadline and at regular intervals thereafter.

2.6 The manager will publish the OOPs as soon as possible, and will attempt to give a window of at least 12 hours for the players to send picks.

2.7 The manager may delegate responsibility for posting the OOP to another person in order to achieve the 12 hour window.

2.8 The manager will usually aim to post differences within 1 hour of start of play (always after the deadline).

2.9 The manager will post results (updates for a 2 day round) as soon as possible.

2.10 In case of unfinished matches the manager will give full instructions regarding the sending of picks.

2.11 Where 2 rounds are played in one day, the manager will try to post differences for the second round when the results of the first are known, but he is not obliged to do so. If differences are not posted he will respond to players’ reasonable requests for information.

2.12 The manager will be familiar with the TT rules, particularly those governing tie-breaks, and will ask for advice if in doubt.

2.13 The manager will keep the first page of the thread updated, especially the draws and the OOP

2.14 If using the -Evita- Spreadsheet the manager will be responsible for its correct operation, and will be prepared to double-check any result on request.

2.15.The manager will treat all players impartially.

2.16 The manager will be courteous and considerate at all times, even when provoked.

2.17 The manager will be especially tolerant and helpful towards players new to Tennis Tipping.


3. The Players

3.1 The players should remember the one tournament per week rule, and their commitment should be clear, particularly in doubles.

3.2 Players are responsible for checking the entry lists and making sure their name is included in the draw.

3.3 Players will remember that the manager has a private life, and be prepared to be flexible when necessary.

3.4 Players may request OOPs, differences or results before the deadlines mentioned in this code, but must do so politely.

3.5 Players are free to criticize the manager, but must be specific and not make generalizations.

3.6 Players must not accuse the manager of laziness, incompetence or bias without clear and precise evidence.

3.7 Players must not personally abuse the manager, their opponents or any fellow player.

3.8 If a player breaches the code, the manager may, at his sole discretion, give the player a chance to retract before taking any action.

3.9 A separate thread in TT has been opened for disciplinary matters.

3.10 The TT board has the option to discipline players, who regularly break the rules of the Code of Conduct.
Players who are in at risk of discipline will receive an official warning before, method of discipline will be individual for each case and will be discussed by the board.

EXAMPLES FOR THE PLACEMENT OF LUCKY LOSERS/ALTs

Managers very often misinterpret rule about placement of LLs. They often do it randomly but it is wrong, we have written rule about it, and you can read it HERE.

Here are a few examples of how to use rule.

EXAMPLE 1: If there is enough LLs/ALTs (note: I'll work with LLs but the same is with ALTs)

Original draw (Red are non senders)
Quote:
(1) buji (IND) vs. Med.Nico (SUI)
Idemo (AUS) vs. (Q) Q1 (XXX)
rvugt (NED) vs. goOudinUSA (USA)
HenryMag. (POR) vs. (5) Kevin. (USA)

(3) Mynarco (HKG) vs. Nightcrawl3r (ROU)
Fantasy Hero (ITA) vs. M.P (HKG)
diego36arg (ARG) vs. (Q) Q2 (XXX)
tennisbuddy12 (USA) vs. (8) iPatty (USA)

(6) shuai.P (CHN) vs. Vincey! (CAN)
FORZA SARITA (ITA) vs. Javi. (ESP)
Southend Aussies (AUS) vs. HAOCHEN-GOAT (ESP)
(Q) Q3 (XXX) vs. (4) MikBs (ITA)

(7) hessie (AUS) vs. Crux Squall (RUS)
(Q) Q4 (XXX) vs. PinkTape (AUS)
Wanderer (SRB) vs. charmedRic (PUR)
DJDVD (NED) vs. (2) gumoll (POL)
LL LIST
1. (LL1).Andrew. (USA)
2. (LL2)Bummel (GER)
3. (LL3)Jose. (POR)

Arrange players (whose opponents didn't sent) in ranking order and then:
LL1 replaces opponent of the lowest ranked player in the draw.
LL3 replaces opponent of the highest ranked player in the draw.

1. (6) shuai.P (26th on TT singles rank) vs. (LL3)Jose. (POR)
2. M.P (45th on TT singles rank) vs. (LL2)Bummel (GER)
3. Crux Squall (97th on TT singles rank) vs. (LL1).Andrew. (USA)

And then rest of the LL are placed against the players who did send (but opponents did not).

ALT4 replaces opponent of the highest ranked player in the draw.

Note 1: Where there is 3 1st round matches in which BOTH players don't send picks, we will have:
LL1 vs. LL6
LL2 vs. LL5
LL3 vs. LL4

Note 2: Where there is more than 1 1st round matches in which BOTH players don't send picks, but there is not enough LLs/ALTs, use a combination of the previous examples.

Note 3: For doubles everything is the same, only we are looking at combined ranking and teams already get replaced if one player of a team didn't send picks.

I didn't see the other thread. If it gets sticky, it's ok how it is.

Re: Tennis Tipping General Rules | Updated for 2011! | Changes in red text!

I have a big question about the Q draws. So, if a Q Draw can have max. 32 players that means;

1. Two rounds for the 1st day of the tournament or
2. The tournament should start one day earlier or
3. Final q round should be the same day as 1st round

I need some advice here....

Re: Tennis Tipping General Rules | Updated for 2011! | Changes in red text!

Ondrej, can you add the rule with 2 days OF's?

For WTA-tournaments with a 32 Player-MD-Field and 7 MD-days we use to have 2 days of OF. So if there is a Sunday final, Qualies starts Saturday and MD starts Monday.

Re: Tennis Tipping General Rules | Updated for 2011! | Changes in red text!

like this?

Use of Alternates/Lucky Losers: If more spots than alternates, highest ranked players receive byes. Place in ranking order.

Where both players fail to send picks for a 1st round match and there are no LLs or ALTs to take their places, the highest-ranked players in that round will receive byes to rd2, and their previous opponents will play each other in the "problem match"

Re: Tennis Tipping General Rules | Updated for 2011! | Changes in red text!

Yeah. Great
In addition, the line "place in ranking order" is a bit vague. The first ALT for QD/MD faces the lowest ranked player wihout opponent, and so on, right?
