Tennis Tipping – Fed Cup (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 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:

Your team captain should send me his team selection and line-up through pm.

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! :cheer:

Re: Tennis Tipping | Fed Cup 2014

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



I've gone through results threads in the last four years and got these results:

Re: Tennis Tipping | Fed Cup 2014

Captains were determined by the highest ranked individual who either represents their country or played FC for their country last year. If you wish to decline your role, it will then go to the next ranked player, and so on.

New teams can still join and will be placed in the WG 2 until it's full.

You can not play Fed Cup and tournament in the same week (week #6)


Tournaments this week:
Code:
06a 03 Feb  Launceston            AUS    50K       32/16/16/8      tenniscreep
