TENNIS TIPPING #33c | Istanbul


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 a player (i.e. the actual WTA Player) retires in a match, there's new retirement rule for 2011. The new retirement rule means that matches involving a retirement WILL count in TT, as long as the leading player is 1 set up. If players are replaced by a lucky loser after the start of Tennis Tipping, these matches will be cancelled.

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: Quanzhou, 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.
You have to send picks before play starts, late picks won´t be accepted!

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.

You are always moaning about draws. Please when you commit also put a number between 1-100. I have developed a math expression which place you in the draw based on your given number. (You can give the same number as the previousplayers, the figure will place you differrent) If you dont give the required number you will be randomly put to the remaining places. At least you cannot blame me.

Your position is based on two decimal digits of the following expression:

X =SQRT(abc/n)

n is a two digit prim
a is your position in the entry list
b is your ranking
c is your chosen number

(You are seed #3 (or #4) and x is calculated as 34. It is less than 50 you get position 3. If x is 73 you get position 4.
You are seed #5-8. If x is less than 25 you get P5, if x is between 25 and 50 you get P6 etc. P9-32 calculated the same way. Positions given by commit order, if position is already given you get the closest available one. If you don’t give number you will be randomly put to empty places.)
The draw

p1 vs. p17
p9 vs. p18
p10 vs. p19
p5 vs. p20
p6 vs. p21
p11 vs. p22
p12 vs. p23
p3 vs. p24
p4 vs. p25
p13 vs. p26
p14 vs. p27
p7 vs. p28
