TENNIS POKER 2014 DOPPIO GIALLO!
"Doppio Giallo" is a popular format in tennis events for kids or tourists, as it helps people to meet and find new friends: it's simply a doubles event where pairs change partner round after round
In each round partnerships will be decided according to the previous leg results, pairing up the first with the last, the second with the last but one, and so on... For the first leg, the 2013 final placements will be used for seeding, together with the singles YER to break ties.
But the 2014 season will introduce a Round Robin stage, instead of a series of elimination rounds, in order to let all the posters play at least till the 5th leg.
There will be 4 groups of 5 posters, with 1 match per leg in each group. The 5th poster will have a leg off, but the individual score will be stored to break ties in the final standings. In the Round Robin stage pairs will be formed in each leg adjusting the usual rule: the last poster in the previous leg will have the leg off, and the first will be playing with the last but one; if it’s not possible, because the posters have already played together or had their leg off, the next in line will be considered.
The posters with the highest number of wins in their respective 4 matches will advance to the main draw, with a direct semis qualification for the group winners.
Last 2 in each group will be eliminated after the 5th leg.
