Tennis Tipping #23 Istanbul Cup....Winner is tucker1989!!!

Tennis Tipping | Istanbul Cup
May 22-27, 2006
Tier III,
http://www.istanbulcup.com/


Welcome to Istanbul! The 23rd tournament of the Tennis Tipping season. Read the rules and sign-up information and then decide to join!

Playing the game is simple:
- before the tournament starts the qualifying and the main draw are made.
- if you're in the qualifying you send in your pick of day 1 matches in a PM to the person running the tournament (including the set ratios for each match) You also send the exact score of one chosen match by the person running the tournament as a tie-breaker. The result you get is used throughout the qualifying rounds and for the 1st round of the main draw.
- main draw starts on day 1, all qualifiers and players directly into the main draw send their picks with set ratios and a tie-breaker score to the person running the game.
- the results will be posted as soon as possible.
- you have to send your picks, before the first match of the day starts, if you send your picks late, then all the picks for the matches already started or finished won't be counted.
- a match will not count in case of a retirement, withdrawal or any late schedule changes.
- you get a point for each correctly predicted winner and a bonus point for the correctly predicted set ratio, the person running the game can decide if the set ratios get counted for a certain round (you're still obliged to send them), this depends on the number of matches, if there is a large number of matches played in one day, then set ratios might not get counted.
Credit to Slokid for the further above informations.



Code:
Day 1: Qualifying players +
Code:
 MD starts, 32 players
Day 2: 16 players
Day 3: QF
Day 4: SF
SF+F: F


For doubles:
- all above rules still apply
- you still tip the WTA singles matches, not the doubles
- you team up with another player of TT tournament and the score of the team is the combined scores of both players
- for commiting your team, just post a commitment in the relative thread of the TT tournament, like "posterA/posterB is a team"


Code:
The Number Of Participants Per Round
Doubles:

Day 2 - MD starts - 8 Teams
Day 3 + Day 4 - SF
Day 5 + DAY 6 - F

Commitment: If you want to play post a commitment in the Tennis Tipping commitment thread: http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=231351
Notify me if you committed but do not see your name on the entry list after the commitments close. All picks should be sent by PM, in case if the board is down for more than 1 day, the tournament will be cancelled.



Come on the Bhoys!

I'm happy to run doubles, but the maximum number of teams likely to commit is 8, so I'm not sure if it would be worth it. If you guys want doubles to be run here, then I'm willing to do it
