Tennis Tipping 44a – 珠海, CHN


你好

2018 was once again a thrilling year on the TT Tour. And while the best of the best is battling it out for the last time in Singapore, we turn to the final WTA Event: the ELITE TROPHY where the best of the rest, the players and teams ranked from 9 to 20 will be hoping for some last minute glory on the tour. With an expected mix of former greatest stars who missed out on Singapore and newbies playing their first ever year-end championships, the ELITE TROPHY will most certainly be an exciting event.

Located just above the city of Macau, Zhuhai will be home of this event for the fourth consecutive year.

What is Tennis Tipping?

OK, you didn't make it to Singapore, but if you end up the year in the top 20, you should know by now what the rules of the game are.

This tournament however, is slightly different as it will be a Round-Robin event.

All players/team will be placed in 4 groups of 3, with each team facing each other over the course of three days. The player/team that doesn't play on a specific day must however send for that day as well, as it can count in case of a tie at the end of the Round Robin section of the draw. The winner of each group will be determined as follow: Whoever won his/their two matches will be the winner of the group. If each player/team finishes with one 1 and 1 loss, the player/team with the highest score (Picks, then SR if necessary) over the three days will advance.

The four teams who won their respective groups will go to the Semi Finals.

The controversial rule specifying that if a player/team in the Semi-Final doesn't send he/they will be replaced by the second player/team from the same round robin group will apply here like last year. Unlike last year however, whining about this rule will not be permitted. If you disagree with this rule, feel free to go play a challenger instead.

The 8 teams who lost in the round robins will have the opportunity to compete in a consolation draw. This event is however unofficial and will not count towards either the rankings nor thet stats of the said players/teams. (but it's the last time you can pick players you actually have seen play so enjoy it!)

You can find all specific Round Robin Rules in this post: https://www.tennisforum.com/80857109-post2.html

How to Sign-Up:

Zhuhai can only be entered upon invitation. Participation can either be confirmed in this thread or by replying the Invitation PM. Alternates will also be invited to join in case some of the players do not enter, do not send, or end up entering Singapore as Alternates.

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: Name of the tournament, 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!

Good Luck, your manager ^bibi^

View about Tennis in China: Tournaments in China not only benefit Chinese girls, but also benefit other asina country girls, which most of them find it difficult and expensive to travel to Eourpe or America, a decade ago, I heard many talented asian girls cant afford to travel and had to decide to retire, and tennis is not as famous as badminton or table tennis in most asia, its a good way to draw more asian paying attention to this fabulous sport.

Biggest disappointment: I would have liked to go further in Grand Slam tournaments, but overall I'm satisfied with my results
Goal(s) for 2019: Staying consistent in top 20, I would also like to reach top 10 again if possible and winning at least another title

Let's learn more about this player...
The 2018 season in one word: The only adjective to describe my season is "top-heavy". :lol: I made an amazing start to the year and despite not winning any big titles, found myself in the top 3 of the race. However since the summer I have barely been winning matches (in singles) so it's a wonder that I made it to Zhuhai at all.
Most proud of : I was very proud to reach the F in Charleston, a tournament that I have attended personally for several years.
Biggest disappointment: My only disappointment is not being able to keep up my stellar form from the first part of the season all the way to the end but that's the name of the game.
Goal(s) for 2019: My goals for 2019 are to re-commit to TT as I have felt my interest waning in the last few months. I would like to get back in the top 10 and do better in slams.
View about Tennis in China: For Americans, the Chinese tournaments are great because the matches take place while we are asleep, so we don't have to agonize over our diffs. :)

The 2018 season in one word: Unspectacular.
Most proud of : It’s in doubles but it’s winning my local event at Eastbourne, which meant that I completed my British grass court summer events doubles titles collection
