Tennis Tipping #61
AIG Japan Open Tennis Championships

http://www.linternaute.com/voyager/lieu/japon/tokyo/diaporama/images/2.jpg


Welcome to Tokyo! The 61st 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 start 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
- 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 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, if a player is defaulted 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.



Singles:

Monday – Qualy
Tuesday – Round 16
Wednesday - QF
Thursday - SF
Friday and Saturday - F

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 but in alphabetical order.

Doubles:Wednesday : QF
Thursday - SF
Friday and Saturday - F

Commitment: If you want to play post a commitment in the Tennis Tipping commitment thread: http://www.linktothecommitmentthread.com
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.
