http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/global/graphics/logos/charleston.jpg

Welcome to Charleston, 15th tournament of the Tennis Tipping season. Do you have what it takes to win down south?

Playing the game is simple:
- before the tournament start the qualifying and the main draw is 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 the morning after the matches are played (that's in the morning according to CET).
- 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
- The person running the game also has 2 WCs at his disposal, which he hands to two players of his choice, to ask for a WC post you request in this thread


The Number Of Participants Per Round:

Day 1 – Qualifying Players
Day 2 – MD starts - 32 Players
Day 3- Round of last 16 Players
Day 4- QF
QF - SF
SF+F - F





Make your commitments in the commitment thread located in the TT forum to play :)
Have fun!

I know this sucks, but according to the rules if there is a tie then the tb is the decider not the picks. :sad:

These matches are also in the OOP, but I didn't include them at first, so I'd suggest that everybody does send these tips to Milan, but if anyone has already sent a PM and doesn't see this post, then I would suggest that these matches do not count in determining the scores for the affected match-ups.

Oh and before I forget:
All players who lost in the final quali round send your picks in as well as you can be lucky losers in case both players in a match of the MD haven't sent in their picks!
:woohoo: maybe a 2nd chance.. ive already sent picks in milan but i missed the last 3 matches.. one of which is playing right now.. so i hope u can still accept it..
Tell me something. Which part of the "final quali round" don't you get? :scratch: :p

Main Draw
1st Round Results
[00-13] Drake1980(1) lost to champion88
[15-15] jtammer def. Bubba08
jtammer picked Craybas to win, Bubba08 picked Camerin to win, jtammer is through.
[00-00] azmad_88 vs. HTE*
Since neither sent picks, they will be replaced by nave 2 in the second round as the lucky loser, nave 2 is the highest ranked lucky loser and had the highest score of those who lost the final quali round.
[09-11] Gavnich77(7) lost to dAnFan
Schnyder vs. Tu, Jankovic vs. Vakulenko and Shaughnessy vs. Henke wasn't counted, because dAnFan didn't send picks for those matches, which was not his fault.
[16-00] SloKid def. BakersBoy(5)
[17-15] ..ikke.. def. mat87to

[18-16] Nimrodg def. vinceten

[20-00] daniela86(2) def. PPP

Three other lucky losers have sent in their picks, but wouldn't have defeated any of the players that have opponents, who didn't send their picks.

Again if anyone notices that I counted their points wrong point it out to me and if your real point total would take you through send your picks in and I will check the results, when I have time.

Final Result
[03-03] SloKid def. silverwhite
silverwhite picked Nadia in 3, but his tb score was Nadia winning 6-3 6-4. SloKid had Nadia in 2 and his tb score was Nadia winning 6-4 6-4 and as he has Patty winning one more game and since the match went to three sets he wins...:tape:
I know this sucks, but according to the rules if there is a tie then the tb is the decider not the picks. :sad:

Ceze
Apr 16th, 2006, 08:18 PM

I know that this outcome is extremly unfair, but those are the rules :sad:
What I don't get is why he picked Nadia in 2 for the tb, because if I had picked Patty he would've won no matter the tb score and if I chose Nadia in 2 I would've won without the need of the tb :shrug:
