Tie Break Rules updated 2009 (still to be revised)

2009 SR/TB Rules.

The TT OOP should have in its contents:

-The Round for which you are tipping;
-15 Set Ratio matches and 3 of those should be Tie Break matches too;
-The person/people picks should be sent to and the deadline to send picks.

Procedures to determine a winner:

1-The player who has more correct tips is the victor.
In the case of a tie in the number of correct tips the victor should be determined by this order:

2-Set Ratios:
Player A wins if he has more correct set ratios than player B. In case there is a tie in the number of correct SR's you should use the SR shootout method.

3-SR Shooutout:
If both players have the same number of SRs correct then you'll have to look at the SR's by their order and check who's the first player to have a SR correct while the other hasn't.
Eg.

Venus wins in 2; Zheng wins in 3.

Let's look at SR1: Both have Venus in 2.
Let's look at SR2: Player A has Zheng in 2 vs. Player B has Zheng in 3.

Zheng won in 3. Player B is the winner.

Unlike the TB procedures, if a player gives a set to the winner and the other player does not, you do not win on the SR shootout. It must be a correct set ratio.
A set ratio shootout implies identical winners. If one person had Venus, for example, and the other had Dulko. The one who chose Venus would win on SR1.

If a winner isn't determined after this we'll use the TB method.

4-Tie Breaks:

In case Player A and Player B chose the correct winner for the TB1 match and both have the correct/incorrect Set Ratio for that match, winner should be determined by this order:

Player has 2 set scores in the correct order > Player has 2 set scores in the wrong order > Player has 1 set score in the right order > Player has 1 set score in the wrong order.

If you can't find a winner after all this use the who's closer method:

Example: Sharapova wins a match 6-3 6-3

Player A chose her: 6-0 6-0
Player B chose her: 7-6 7-6

Total number of games in Sharapova match: 6+3+6+3=18
Total number of games in Player A pick: 6+0+6+0=12
Total number of games in Player B pick: 7+6+7+6=26

Player A: |18-12|=6
Player B: |18-26|=8

Player A wins as he is closer to the real score.

In case you chose the loser for the TB1 match:
Player A and Player B chose the loser of the TB1 match but Player A gives a set to the winner and Player B doesn't --> Player A wins.
Player A and Player B chose the loser of the TB1 match and no player gives a set to the winner ---> Use TB2/TB3 and do the same steps.
None of the TB's could produce a winner after using this method --> Use the old TB method where the Player who gives the winner the most games will win.

5-CB/”Looking Forwards”:

In Case everything is tied after the use of the TB’s use tournament Countback (CB) as a manner of untying things. If, after the use of CB everything is still tied make players send for the next round and the one with the best picks will win.
