TIPPING FEDERATION CUP



Welcome to the first round of Tipping Federation Cup 2013! This is the 218th tipping event overall and 5th in 2013.

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 committed 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: HawkAussie, randy72391
BRAZIL: Broseghini, wtatourfan
CHINESE TAIPEI: coolfish1103
CROATIA: ma re
ESTONIA: WhoAmI?, chingching
FRANCE: *Jean*, Djezonfly
GERMANY: Emrys, Frederik
GREECE: hellas719, Hakon, come on lena
ITALY: Ralph214, Shadowcat
ISRAEL: ronim1
JAPAN: longtin23
NETHERLANDS: Sasja, Wrongagain
POLAND: JustPetko, Beesley, Barktra
RUSSIA: Хлоэ, F4CU
SERBIA: BlackPanther., Igorche
SLOVAKIA: Hapsara
SPAIN: supertec
UK: kejm
USA: KittyTennis, Vaxey, goOudinUSA

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.

Re: Tipping 218: Fed Cup 2013 R1

I've updated the entry list, corrected some links in the oppening post etc., but please let me know if I've missed some username changes, cause they're sometimes quite frequent and at times I lose track, especially in Fed Cup which we play just 3 times a year. Btw, those of you who sign up for existing team, your name will be added once the competition starts, unless there are no objections from other team members.​

missed me for Azerbaijan :)
No, I just said I'll add new players to existing teams once the play starts, and unless there are no objections from committed players of that team. So if HBO02 doesn't show up and/or doesn't complain you'll get signed in once the matches of day 1 start ;)
