TIPPING FEDERATION CUP



Welcome to the first round of Tipping Federation Cup 2012! This is the 182nd tipping event overall and 4th in 2012.

HOW TO PLAY

First of all, you have to sign-in and specify the team you'll play for. If you have played before, you don't have to sign-in again, unless you'd like to play for another team. New players can choose to join one of the existing teams (listed below), or select any other country. There are no restrictions regarding the number of players per team.

You do, however, have to sign-in before the start of the first match if you'd like to play for an existing team as a new player. If you are a bit late, you can still play, but for some country that still has no players representing it. Changes of team choices are possible until the start of the competition. You can switch teams as the season goes, but you will be able to transfer to an existing team only if members of that team state that they don't object you joining in.

ENTRY LIST at the moment looks like this:

AUSTRALIA: Kev., Buitenzorg, hessie
AZERBAIJAN: WTAtennis2012

Tipping 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 and then you just tip who you think will win.

e.g If the schedule was...
Ivanovic vs Sharapova
V. Williams vs S. Williams

This is how you would tip...
Ivanovic
V. Williams

We play only main draw singles matches and only "live" matches, so when one team gets to 3 points and wins the tie, we don't count any matches played later on.

If there's 1 point played in a match then the match counts (walkover or a pre-match retirement doesn´t count).

Deadline for posting your tips is until the scheduled start of the match in question, so check this info due to time zones etc.

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

World Group I first round: 4 points per correct tipp
World Group II first round: 2 points per correct tipp

After all the matches of the day are played, we'll sum up all the points earned by the players of each team and divide by the number of players of that respective team. So for example, a sum of points earned by 4 players of some team during the day, will be divided by four to give the team's score.

Scores from each Fed Cup weekend will count towards the end of season team winner, but will also be taken to form continuous, 52-week team rankings. So each season the points earned last year will have to be defended. Points earned during Fed Cup weekends will not count for your individual tipping rankings (points earned playing tournaments). Fed Cup rankings and race standings can be found in the Games >>> Tipping section of the forum, along with all the rules.

For current STANDINGS as well as info on how much each team is DEFENDING in this round, go HERE.

when does it start?saturday?
Yes, it says so in the opening post (4th and 5th of February i.e. Saturday and Sunday). Most ties will start at approximately the same time on Saturday - between 11 AM and 3 PM Central European Time. Exceptions are...

- Japan vs. Slovenia which starts at noon local time i.e. 4 AM CET
(19:00 on Friday in Los Angeles, 21:00 in Mexico City, 22:00 in New York/Bogota; 1:00 on Saturday in Sao Paulo, 5:00 in Johannesburg, 7:00 in Moscow, 8:30 in New Delhi, 10:00 in Bangkog/Jakarta, 11:00 in Beijing/Hong Kong, 14:00 in Sydney)
- USA vs. Belarus which starts at 1 PM local time i.e. 7 PM CET
(10:00 in Los Angeles, noon in Mexico City, 13:00 in New York/Bogota, 16:00 in Sao Paulo, 20:00 in Johannesburg, 22:00 in Moscow, 23:30 in New Delhi, 1:00 on Sunday in Bangkok/Jakarta, 2:00 in Beijing/Hong Kong, 5:00 in Sydney)

P. S. Serbian and Greek team are updated; KittyTennis is OK with changes to the US team, so we're now just waiting for Vaxey to confirm.
