*Tipping #130 ~ Rome*



Rome, Italy - May 9 - 15 (Premier 5)







Welcome to Rome, the last Premier tournament before the French Open! This is the 130th Tipping tournament and the 16th in 2011.

Past Finals

2010: Inktrailer def. WhoAmI?
2009: Adrian1992 def. ronim1


How to Play

If you still don't know what Tipping is, it is like Tennis Tipping but different. You don't play other people and you don't have to tip the score which makes it an easier game to play. Everyone can play!

Playing Tipping is very easy. I will post the schedule every day and then you just tip who you think will win. Just type "in" to play (this will make my life easier but if you forgot to post "in" this is not the end of the world).

e.g If the schedule was...
J. Jankovic vs S. Kuznetsova
D. Safina vs V. Azarenka

This is how you would tip...
Jankovic
Safina

You only tip the main draw singles matches.

If there's 1 point played in a match then the match counts (walkovers or pre-match retirements don´t count).

Pick for each match should be posted before the scheduled start of that match.

For the final match you will also need to guess how many games will be played. This will work as a tiebreaker.

Do NOT edit your post. If you want to change your picks do it in a new post. Edited posts will make all your picks invalid.

Scoring

First Round = 1 point per correct tip.
Every additional round = one point more than for the previous round, per correct tip.

How to Solve Ties

1. The player who guessed the winner.
2. The player who is closest in games guessed.
3. The player who posted the fastest post in the final. If no one posted in the final go backwards to the semis and so on.
4. The player who got the most correct picks in the semi final. If the same, move backwards to quarterfinal and so on.

Bonus Points (Premier 5)

Aside from the points that you accumulated during the tournament, bonus points will be added for the Top 8 scorers.

W: 160
F: 120
SF: 80
QF: 60

The Rankings

Your best 15 results the past 52 weeks will count towards your ranking. There are no mandarory tournaments.

Good luck and have fun everyone!
