Tennis Tipping | Istanbul Cup
May 22-27, 2006
Tier III, http://www.istanbulcup.com/


Welcome to Istanbul! The 23rd 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 and for the 1st round of the main draw.
- main draw starts on day 1, 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:


Day 1: Qualifying players + MD starts, 32 players
Day 2: 16 players
Day 3: QF
Day 4: SF
SF+F: F

For doubles:
- all above rules still apply
- you still tip the WTA singles matches, not the doubles
- you team up with another player of TT tournament and the score of the team is the combined scores of both players
- for commiting your team, just post a commitment in the relative thread of the TT tournament, like "posterA/posterB is a team"

The Number Of Participants Per Round
Doubles:

Day 2 - MD starts - 8 Teams
Day 3 + Day 4 - SF
Day 5 + DAY 6 - F



Commitment: If you want to play post a commitment in the Tennis Tipping commitment thread: http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=231351 (http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=231351%3C/a%3E%20%3C/b%3E)
Notify me if you committed but do not see your name on the entry list after the commitments close. All picks should be sent by PM, in case if the board is down for more than 1 day, the tournament will be cancelled.

I'm happy to run doubles, but the maximum number of teams likely to commit is 8, so I'm not sure if it would be worth it. If you guys want doubles to be run here, then I'm willing to do it :)

Yes, you pick the 5 matches that I've mentioned and also give your prediction for the set ratio....eg Catano OVER Bondarenko 2-0 or Bondarenko OVER Castano 2-1 and so on. For the match that is specified as the tie break match, send the set ratio AND your prediction for the score....eg Diaz-Oliva OVER Pironkova 2-0.....6-0 6-0....or whatever :)

Send your picks to me and I'll let you know if you've done it correctly :)

does anybody know when the Doubles rankings will be made?

SloKid

If you were to check the rankings thread you would've known.

And about the ranking points, the doubles were introduced on a trial basis. It will get done eventually.
You have to understand that the doubles represent an extra workload for the tournament runner and may not be done in all tournaments at this point.

Hopefully we will keep this trend of doubles at every tournament, but at this point it depends solely on the time available to the person that's running the tournament, it's purely his decision to run it if he has the extra time.
