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, the match WILL count in TT, as long as the first point has been played, but they do not count for SRs or for TBs.

- If players are replaced by a lucky loser after the start of Tennis Tipping, these matches will be cancelled.

Tie-break method for 2015: TB/SR Rules 2015 (determining the winner) - TennisForum.com


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.


How to send in picks:

Picks can be sent in as soon as the draws are ready. Remember, you pick a winner in every match! Picks should be sent by PM, so that your opponent does not know your picks. Picks should be titled: [TT: Zhuhai, day #]. Picks can be sent in anytime until the beginning of play each day. If you are in singles and doubles then you can use different picks for each if you want to. For doubles, you still tip the WTA singles matches, not the doubles! No changes can be made after the play has started.
You have to send picks before play starts, late picks won´t be accepted!

In case of emergencies/pick sending problems: Only in case of circumstances that a tt player cannot send picks to the manager of the tournament one can send his picks to the below e-mail address. The board will be able to access this account and picks sent here will be counted as normal. Please note that it should ONLY be used in emergencies. Also, a person who uses this method of sending picks should alert the tournament manager and a board member as soon as possible because the account won't necessarily be checked every day.

[email protected]

You can also send your picks to [email protected] if you aren´t able to sign in to the board, as I check this email account daily anyway!

Good Luck, your manager Randy :hatoff:

TT ROLL OF HONOUR:

Code:
[U]Singles:[/U]

03:01 | (6) Elwin. (NED)  def. (3) Darth Revan (SRB) 

[U]Doubles:[/U]

06:04 | (4) Inger67/New_balls_please (USA/USA) def. (1) Jean/HAOCHEN-GOAT (FRA/ESP)

EVENT MODUS:

12 players (from 9th to 20th place of the 2016 TT race) in round robin format (four groups of three players, then single-elimination semifinals and final), and 12 double pairs from 9th to 20th place of 2016 TT Race (four groups of three pair, then single-elimination semifinals and final)
The tops of the groups will qualify for the semifinals only, all three players/teams of each group will play against each other on the Round Robin days.
All players/teams will have one day off during the RR stages but they still should send on that day as the total number of correct picks will decide when there is a tie between players/teams at the end of the RR stages.

For example:

Group A ( with 3 players on RR Day 1)

Player Z vs. Player X
Player Y vs. BYE

The match against BYE obviously does not count as official match as you don´t get points for it and players/teams who do not send for the match against BYE do not get replaced
