Tennis Tipping | Doha


Welcome to Doha! The tenth tournament has arrived in the game Tennis Tipping. Read the rules and sign-up information and then decide to join!

What is Tennis Tipping?

Tennis Tipping is an idea of DeccyB123 on MensTennisForums.com, where it will started for the first time during the Australian Open. 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 Number Of Participants Per Round:
Day 1 - Qualifiers
Day 2 - Top 32
Day 3 - Top 16
Day 4 - Top 8
QF - 4 Players
SF+F - 2 Players
For the first day all qualifiers send their picks. Main Draw starts day 2. Top 16 make it to the next day. As you can see from then on, each day half of the participants are knocked out.



Note:

- In case of a tie, a tie-breaker match for which the score (as opposed to just the winner) is given, will decide who moves on to the next round. For all participants, this tie-breaker match is the same and will be assigned beforehand.
- In case a participant does not send in picks, he or she is forfeited and his or her opponent wins by walkover. If both players did not send in picks, they will be replaced by a lucky loser, which is defined as the participant with the most correct picks who still lost his or her match.
- In case a player (i.e. the actual WTA Player) retires in a match, this match will be cancelled and not taken into consideration when calculating the number of correct picks. If players are replaced by a lucky loser after the start of Tennis Tipping, these matches will also be cancelled.

How to sign up:

Make your commitments in the commitment thread to play :)
Notify me if you committed but do not see your name on the entry list before the start of the First Round matches.

How to send in picks:

Picks can be sent in as soon as all qualifiers have been placed. Remember, you pick a winner in every match! Picks should be sent by PM, so that your opponent does not know your picks. No changes can be made. In some cases a 1st round match will be played after a 2nd round match, so those matches would be cancelled if needed.

It may sound a bit complicated, but it is actually really really simple! So sign up for the Tennis Tipping event of the Qatar Total Open!

Well....you don't have to have 16 players to play here!

there are a lots of people wanting to play here! it's ridiculous, Tier II event but only contesting 16 players!

if this is going to be like this, I am sure a lots of poeple wouldn't continue to play this game!

Slokid is right, tennisguy didn't post that he will be playing here in the commitment thread, that's why he isn't in the list, all the others that have committed and aren't on the list. Don't worry, you'll be added in the final entry list. So there will be more than 16 players.

But you can ask the TT players to picks per round and you count it per day, Mommiej.. I don't know, but I think it's possible..

Draw is up!

All committed players will have to send points for the whole 1st round! On day 1 the qualifying matches will be played. And the whole 1st round will count for the round of 32!

champion88
Feb 26th, 2006, 10:54 PM
day 1 OOP is:
R Vinci V E Likhovtseva
M Hingis V M Washington
J Zheng V S Kuznetsova
J Jankovic V J Schruff
A Bondarenko V V Douchevina
D Hantuchova V K Peschke
Zvonareva V N Li

can't the qualifiers use these matches to qualify then the rest of us play from day 2 as normal??

Mommiej
Feb 26th, 2006, 11:00 PM
maybe that's just as smart, because there will be some 3rd round qualifying matches tomorrow.

So it will be:

Qualifiers will have to send their picks for day 1. On day 1 the qualifying matches will be played. And day 2 will count for the round of 32!

champion88
Feb 26th, 2006, 11:05 PM
cool- that's better because we do not know who the qualifiers are for the first round in the real tournie yet, so main draw people don't need to worry about picking til day 2- phew! glad this finally sorted! would have been easier if the doha website worked and the got the bloody OOP out earlier!!

That doesn't matter much, I'm just glad that all matches that are played, are in the Daily Matches here, so if you have to send your picks, you can do it without those 2 matches, but if you have allready sent your picks, than leave it and I just won't count them.

Then the game wouldn't be much different from Fill-in-the-draw :shrug:

Part of the attraction in this game and what makes it unique is the knock-out nature of the game ;)

i know.. i pmed him to pullout from somewhere.. and he pmed me back that he would pull himself out from doha after yesterday's result were out..

should we take a further step or let this fall?

:p @ ghosts

We could let it pass this time as I think it was originally an unintentional mistake, but once he realised he was in both he should have pulled out of one tournament straightaway instead of waiting for the results to come out.

Perhaps we could make it clearer that you should only send in ALT points for one event in future.

You should keep all picks until the end of a tournament for things like these

Mommiej
Mar 1st, 2006, 10:09 PM
We found the problem.

Scoreboard Doha says: 6-4, 8-6(4) for Kuznetsova (strange score)
Wtatour.com says: (6) Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) d. Maria Kirilenko (RUS) 46 63 62

Tennace
Mar 1st, 2006, 10:11 PM
WTATour.com said 6-4, 7-6(4 or 5) earlier :confused: it changed

Appearantly, but this also the score they put in the draw of Doha. 3 sets I mean.

everyone as 3, because when I counted the scores it said allready 3 on http://www.wtatour.com/results

Mommiej

But I also don't think this tournament site is very reliable, because they put on the draws just monday or tuesday and were also very late with the OOP on monday, that's why we also had problems then.
