Tennis Tipping General Rules
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.
- In case of a tie, a tie-breaker will decide who moves on to the next round.
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.
Some other rules:
*Tournament thread opening:
1week prior to the begining of the tournament.
Tournaments should have a draw which has the same size as the real one. Qualifying draws should have room for 32 players except in weeks where there are 3 WTA tournaments. In Those weeks the qualifying draws should have room for 16 players. Any exception to this rule should be decided by the board members.
*Standard First Page:

Now that we have many players, managers should start their “managing career” with a low tiered tournament. Only High-profiled managers will run slams.

Not used in the 2010 season.
*Determining Lucky Losers:
In the end of the final qualifying round managers should post a list of the players who have the higher scores in that round (If the score is the same you should use the TB System to order the players). Those are the first players to be called in case someone doesn’t send his/her picks.
*Deadline for Picks
Set by manager, time of first match. No more of "first point played." Makes it easier for everyone involved.
Top 30 players in the singles entry rankings can't play them, except during the Fed Cup and Grand Slam second weeks and when there are no regular WTA tournaments played.
*Number of commitments
Min. number of commitments for a tournament to be run is 16 players/8 teams.
It will be brought back and we shall decide about it in the next meeting.
You CAN’T send a SR in your TB different from the SR you decided to send first.
If you send a SR different from your TB (Ex: 2-0 6-3 4-6 7-6) that pick will be counted but the SR/TB won’t.
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.
Singles commitment deadline will be 3pm local time the day before qualifying begins.
*Missing Someone's Commitment
In the case that you miss someone's commitment while managing a tournament he/she will be topping the Alt or LL lists.
*Entry Lists/What rankings?
For doing entry lists the last posted rankings will be used.
*Number of Events Per week
One can only play one event per week which includes (giving) walkovers or being replaced by an ALT.
3 Month + 100 posts Rule
One can only play this game if he has created an account in this forum atleast 3 months ago AND has atleast 100 posts.
*Sendind picks for someone else
Should be sorted according to the commitment order.
*Use of Alternates/Lucky Losers
If more spots than alternates, highest ranked players receive byes. Place in ranking order.
*Qualifying for Bali
Highest ranked players that have won an international tournament and have not qualified for Doha.
*Qualifying for Doha
Highest ranked players/teams determined by a ranking composed by the best 16 results that the players/teams have done throughout the year. Top 8 players and Top 8 teams shall qualify.
you MUST send picks to the manager in order for them to count. if for some reason you cannot send to the manager, then send to the emergency tt board email address.
if you attempt to send picks to the manager and the pm fails, then your picks will count as long as you can provide evidence that the picks were sent in time. if you cannot, then such picks will not count.
if you send to your doubles partner, but forget to send to the manager, these picks will NOT count.
