Tennis Tipping | Pattaya Open


Welcome to Pattaya! The 3rd 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 also start 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 participants and whoever predicted the winner of most matches correctly, moves on to the next round.

The Number Of Participants Per Round:
Day 1 - All commited players
Day 2 - Top 16
Day 3 - 8 Players
QF - 4 Players
SF+F - 2 Players

For the first round all participants send their picks. Top 16 make it to the next round. As you can see from then on, each round half of the participants are knocked out.


- 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 you 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 Pattaya Open!
