Tennis Tipping
#18c Indian Harbour Beach (USA)



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.

Note:
- In case of a tie, new SR/TB rules will decide who moves on to the next round.
New SR/TB rules: http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=425109

- In case a player (i.e. the actual WTA Player) retires in a match, the new retirement rule will decide whether the match will or won't be counted (http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost....44&postcount=1). If players are replaced by a lucky loser after the start of Tennis Tipping, these matches will be cancelled.

How to Sign-Up

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.

More information: http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=425105

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: Something, 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.

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:wavey:

Is it possible to play two different tournaments for singles and doubles?

e.g.

singles = here
doubles = cagnes-sur-mer

?

Thanks in advance :)

Are you sure that this is also the case if I'm playing 1 singles tournament and another doubles tournament and not 2 different singles tournaments?

Thanks ;)

SVK
May 2nd, 2011, 05:45 PM
I was wrong, we need "just" 5 people. Itīs not impossible, I remember my first tournament when I found 4 people in Wednesday morning:lol:

You can PMed some persons you know, they even couldnīt be TT players, just they need to send "IN". They even couldnīt send the picks, just we need 16 people:p I will try to find some too.

It's a bit absurd situation as people were rather playing qualies of Cagnes-Sur-Mer and losing there than being here in MD. :spit: :lol:

SVK
May 3rd, 2011, 01:24 AM
Thatīs good, less work wit this:p

I still think I can find 5 people, will go to chatthreads and find some even who are not TT players. It would be shame to cancell it.

I only just figured out what happened to Paz vs Cohen, with Naydenova coming in as a LL for Paz. So yes, you were a bit unlucky, because Paz was one of my riskier picks.
