Tennis Tipping #39 - Estoril



May 4-10, 2009
International Series
Proud Member of the ETTCT​


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.

Note: - In case of a tie, a tie-breaker will decide who moves on to the next round.
New 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.

How to Sign-Up:

Just post here that you would like to play. You can only play one tournament per week. Entries will be based on ranking. Everyone can commit.

More information: http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?p=14383865

How to send in picks:

Picks can be sent in as soon as the draws are ready. Remember, you pick a winner inevery match! Picks should be sent by PM, so that your opponent does not know your picks. Picks should be titled: [TT: Something, day #]. Picks can be sent in anytime until the beginning of play each day. If you're still in both singles & doubles, you use the same tips for both. For doubles, you still tip the WTA singles matches, not the doubles!No changes can be made after the play has started.


Good Luck, Luís Santos.

European Tennis Tipping Clay Tour (ETTCT)



What is the European Tennis Tipping Clay Tour (ETTCT)???

It's a new tennis-cup, to make european clay events more attractive and worth to play.

Who is able to play the ETTCT?

Everyone, who enters one of the tournaments below, plays automatic in the tour.

How will the ETTCT work like?

It will work like every other normal tournament. You have to enter the tournament to play in it. This also the commitment for the ETTCT. For each round you reach, you will get points, just as like the whole year long. Only different thing is, that in doubles you get ONLY points for your team. There will be NO single Doubles-Ranking for the ETTCT. At the end of the 12th tournament, Roland Garros, the winner will be known and win a prize. The special thing about RG is, that you will get points as for a Premier Event, not as like for a Grand Slam.

Will I get extra-points for the rankings?

No, you won't. Only points for the ETTCT rankings.

Will there be any special points in the ETTCT?

Yes! Points, which are gained in the qualifying will also count for the race. There will be also some special or better extra-points for winning 2 tournaments in a row, or winning both competition in one tournament.
More about prizes and points you find in the original thread (see bottom of this post).


Why should I play the ETTCT?

Well, I can't force everybody to play the ETTCT, but it will be for sure really funny and well organized tournaments are guaranteed, because only the best managers will manage the european clay tournaments.

How will I know, which tournament is an ETTCT tournament?

First of all, in post #2 there is a schedule of play. But if you won't find it, you can see it on the Tennis Tipping Banner, which SHOULD be used for every ETTCT tournament. Normaly it is up in post #1, that you can recognize you are entering an ETTCT tournament.

Who will run the ETTCT-Cup?

It's gonna be Adrian1992, with the help of all european clay tournaments managers. If you still have some questions about the ETTCT, you can ask him.

Daily reports​


Estoril News
Saturday, May 2nd 2009


It was under a luminous blue sky that the Estádio Nacional received the lower echelons of the TT ranks. After commitments closed early for Rome plenty of players booked their flights to Lisbon in a last attempt to get some clay matches under their belts. With this, the Estoril Open has now recorded it's biggest entry list ever, with 10 alternates lining to get a chance to make the qualifying draw.

But the flooding of players this year had no reflexes on national players as only one Portuguese player will grace the qualifying singles draw - No Mercy!!! is the 8th seed and will battle it out tomorrow for a place in the main draw where he'll again be the sole Portuguese presence. Marquee names for Portugal such as HenryMag, Ruisantos and Luís Santos all headed to Rome for the Internazionali d'Italia while Marcelo. remains on the sidelines this week.

As for the stars of this year's edition, France's number 1 NIKKO84 will be top seed 01. He will however, face tough competition from Chinese mega star Peterpan as well as gritty Polish Denijs who is this week's numbr 3 seed.
