Tennis Tipping-- Fed Cup 2018

Tennis Tipping Fed Cup 2018 (ALL WORLD GROUPS)





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 a player (i.e. the actual WTA Player) retires, the match WILL count in TT, as long as the first point has been played, but they do not count for SRs or for TBs in which both players/teams picked the same winner.

- If players are replaced by a lucky loser after the start of Tennis Tipping, these matches will be cancelled.

Tie-break method for 2016: TB/SR Rules 2015 (determining the winner) - TennisForum.com


How to Sign-Up:

Your team captain should send me his team selection and line-up through pm or post it in the thread.

How to send in picks:

Picks can be sent in as soon as the draws are ready. Remember, you pick a winner in every match! Picks should be sent by PM, so that your opponent does not know your picks. Picks should be titled: [TT: Name of the tournament, day #]. Picks can be sent in anytime until the beginning of play each day. If you are in singles and doubles then you can use different picks for each if you want to. For doubles, you still tip the WTA singles matches, not the doubles! No changes can be made after the play has started.
You have to send picks before play starts, late picks won´t be accepted!

In case of emergencies/pick sending problems:

Please send your picks to the following email address: [email protected]

The board will be able to access this account and picks sent here will be counted as normal. Please note that it should ONLY be used in emergencies.
Also, a person who uses this method of sending picks should alert the tournament manager and a board member as soon as possible because the account won't necessarily be checked every day.

Good Luck

Re: Tennis Tipping-- Fed Cup 2018

Unofficial Nations Rankings

Rankings are based on the results in TT Fed Cup in last four years (208 weeks).

Only winning nations can receive points, number of points depends on the round in which they play. Nations that win by walkover will not receive round points.

Recent performance is weighted more heavily: points from the second, third and fourth year of the ranking period will be reduced by 25%, 50% and 75% respectively. Therefore, 100 points would become 75, then 50, then 25 over the four years.

Here's points distribution per round


@Igorche has gone through results threads in the last four years and got these results: (thank you so much for all your work!)

Re: Tennis Tipping-- Fed Cup 2018

Romania captain is @histery , if he wanted to play.

Also, @lucian_iasi might join the team.

Maybe, @Haleptard ?

I'm in, anyway. And I'll captain the team only if Alin declines the Fed Cup participation.
