Welcome to Doha!



http://www.interlineres.com/upload/images/pictures/cities/doha_City_Skyline.jpg


This is the 113th tipping tournament and 35th in 2010!

Tipping is like Tennis Tipping but different. You don't play other people and you don't have to tip the score which makes it an easier game to play. Everyone can play!

HOW TO PLAY
Playing Tipping is very easy. I will post the schedule and then you just tip who you think will win. Just type "in" to play (this will make my life easier but if you forgot to post "in" this is not the end of the world).

e.g If the schedule was...
Ivanovic vs Sharapova
V. Williams vs S. Williams

This is how you would tip...
Ivanovic
V. Williams

It is only main draw singles matches.

If there's 1 point played in a match then the match counts (walkover doesn´t count).

Each pick should be posted before the start of the match in question, otherwise it'll be considered invalid.

For the final match you will also need to guess how many games will be played. This will work as a tiebreaker.

Do NOT edit your post. If you want to change your picks do it in a new post. Edited posts will make all your picks invalid.

SCORING
First Round = 1 point per correct tip.
Every additional round = one point more than for the previous, per correct tip.

BONUS POINTS
W: 180
F: 135
SF: 90
QF: 75

Good luck and have fun:wavey:

Additional information and rules


Beside writing the winner of the match you must also write the set ratio you think will happen. For example if the OOP was:
Schiavone vs Jankovic
Wozniacki vs Zvonareva

then you pick:

Schiavone 2-1
Wozniacki 2-0

The purpose is to difference you in total points. You only get points for correct set ratio if you also picked the winner.

Bonus points for Year-End Championship:

W: 180
F: 135
SF: 90
QF: 75


8 points for each correct pick in Round Robin
9 points for each correct pick in Semi Final
10 points for correct pick in Final.
1 point for each correct set ratio (if you picked the winner)

It seems like congratulations are in order for Tennisfan_77, so congrats girl on your 3rd title of the season, and by far the biggest and most important:worship: I probably won't be able to update the rankings until tomorrow, but I think there's a chance you finish the year at #4 (but don't take my word for it). Of course, thanks Tales for doing a great job at yet another tournament;)

So, only one event left and then a loooong break of almost two full monts until another season. I miss the Tour already...:sad: :lol:
