Welcome to Warsaw! The 16th 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
- main draw starts on day 2, 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. :hatoff:

It depends if there is late commitments or not, but I may cancel the qualifications. There is not enough players for doing decent qualifications and there is enough spots available for the 5 players of the qualifying list, the main draw will still start on tuesday though.

Today- guessed Kuzzie and Venus matches correct and sets correct.

Picked Patty over Ana :fiery:

Gotta hope Dani wins even though she is a break down- although I picker her in 3 so she can lose this set if she wants as long as she wins the next 2! :p

May 4th, 2006, 05:16 PM

Quaterfinals matches updated, two matches were really closed.

Here are some details in order to be a little bit clearer:

04:04 | ~~*Elena.D*~~ (GER) v champion88 (GBR) TB - (22:28)
champion88 is through as he picked V. Williams in 3 in the tb, ~~*Elena.D*~~ picked Hingis in 3, the exact tiebreak score is (22:28).

02:02 | Chris 84 (IRL) v (4) meelis13 (EST) TB - (15:16)
Both had Hingis in 2 and picked the same score for the first set, but meelis13 was one game closer of the real score in the second set, meelis13 is through.

Bubba, I don't understand, what do the numbers beside 'TB' mean? eg. (28-19) etc.
Oh yeah I know, I should explain how I do it.
TB is the tiebreab score of the poster in the tiebreak match, honestly it is not really necessary. Most of the time you can see the winner of a tied match without doing the count, I wanted to try this to make it clearer but it seems to be useless.
Anyways, your score in the tiebreak is the number of "right games" minus the number of "wrong games" giving by a poster in the tiebreak match.

Example: A def. B = 6-4 3-6 7-5

Poster C prediction: A def. B = 4-6 6-2 6-4
. In the first set, C gave 4 games to A which are 4 "right games" ( = 4 points), C gave 6 games to B which are 4 "right games" and 2 "wrong games" ( = 4 - 2 = 2 points ).
. In the second set, C gave 6 games to A which are 3 "right games" and 3 "wrong games"( = 3 - 3 = 0 points), C gave only 2 games to B which are 2 "right games" ( = 2 points ).
. In the third set, C gave 6 games to A which are 6 "right games" ( = 6 points), C gave 4 games to B which are 4 "right games" ( = 4 points ).

In the end, C gets: 4 + 2 + 0 + 2 + 6 + 4 = 18 points, that is his tiebreak score.

Poster D prediction: A def. B = 6-3 1-6 6-2
. In the first set, D gave 6 games to A which are 6 "right games" ( = 6 points), D gave 3 games to B which are 3 "right games" ( = 3 points ).
. In the second set, D gave 1 game to A which is 1 "right game" ( = 1 point), D gave 6 games to B which are 6 "right games" ( = 6 points ).
. In the third set, D gave 6 games to A which are 6 "right games" ( = 6 points), D gave 2 games to B which are 2 "right games" ( = 2 points ).

In the end, D gets: 6 + 3 + 1 + 6 + 6 + 2 = 24 points, that is his tiebreak score.

D def. C (24:18), the winner is D.

Congratulation if you read and understand my entire post, I hope it was clear and answered to your question kj-.

Thank you all for playing here this week! :wavey:

I had a great time running this tournament, I hope everyone was pleased by the organisation. If you have any remarks or suggestions on the organisation of this TT tourney, just let me know! Thus I could improve myself. :p

Congrats to east players for his first title. :yeah:

Commiserations to meelis13, reaching the final is a good achievement though.
