Tennis Tipping - Fed Cup Final

http://www.fedcup.com/shared/images/header/headergraphic_left.gif

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.

Note:
- In case of a tie, a tie-breaker will decide who moves on to the next round.
New tie-break method: http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost....65&postcount=1

- In case a player (i.e. the actual WTA Player) retires in a match, this match will not be counted. If players are replaced by a lucky loser after the start of Tennis Tipping, these matches will be cancelled.

How to sign up?
You can't, lulz. Your team captain will decide whether you play or not. You can, of course, tell him that you are available.

Note:
- This is only the final. No other teams than Portugal and USA will play.

Good luck, Andreas. May the best country win.

You can play for the team you want to ;) However, you will probably not get chosen for teams who have many high ranked players.
I played for Serbia this season, but I think the rules force me to play for either Serbia or Denmark now. Not sure about that though.

Sorry guys but with my ranking I'll never be chossen to play for Portugal :p

I asked Meelis and he was unsure: Lacy played for CZE earlier this year but she is an American. Can I name her for the final or is she obligated to CZE for the entire year? In 2010, I know I can name her to the team but has anyone tried to go back to play for the real country in Fed Cup during the year after previously playing for a 'fake' country?

Adrian.
Oct 23rd, 2009, 01:45 PM
I would say she can't play for your team, as she was playing already THIS year for CZE:shrug:
