Tennis Tipping #11 - Dubai



Welcome to Tennis Tipping Dubai!

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 participants 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.

Code:
The Number Of Participants Per Round:

SINGLES:

Day 1 - 32 Players
Remainder of R32 - 16 Players
R16 - 8 Players
QF - 4 Players
SF + F - 2 Players

DOUBLES:

R32 - 16 Teams
R16 - 8 Teams
QF - 4 Teams
SF + F - 2 Teams
Note:

- In case of a tie, a tie-breaker match for which the score (as opposed to just the winner) is given, will decide who moves on to the next round. For all participants, this tie-breaker match is the same and will be assigned beforehand.
- In case a player (i.e. the actual ATP Player) retires in a match, this match will be cancelled and not taken into consideration when calculating the number of correct picks. If players are replaced by a lucky loser after the start of Tennis Tipping, these matches will also be cancelled.


How to Sign-Up:

Just post here that you would like to play.
You can only play one tournament per week.
You must commit before the designated time. For this tournament, that time is 9:00PM Sunday in Melbourne.
For help with timezones, use this - www.timeanddate.com/worldclock.

Maximum Players for this tournament: 32
Maximum Doubles Teams for this tournament: 16

Currently, entries into a tournament are based on a first-come, first-in basis.

How to send in picks:

Picks can be sent in as soon as all qualifiers have been placed. 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: [tournament, day #]. Picks can be sent in anytime until the beginning of play each day. Because of the chances of 1st and 2nd Round matches being played on the same day, you should send in tips each day, even if you're not sure if you've made the next round. If you're still in both singles & doubles, you use the same tips for both. For doubles, you still tip the ATP singles matches, not the doubles! No changes can be made.

Good Luck!

Re: Tennis Tipping #11 - Dubai | Sign-Up!

Also, I'd like to point out three major changes we've made, which is different from the past tournaments, for those who're not aware of the changes in writing in the introduction post.

1. There're now 32 available Singles spots to accommodate the increasing popularity of this game, and 16 Doubles teams.

2. For the entry spots, we've changed from 'ranking priority-basis' to 'First come-First in basis'. Which simply means the first 32 players who commit first, will be guaranteed a spot in this game. If you're late, and the spots are filled, then no matter what your previous ranking in this game is, you'd have to wait as an ALT or commit to other current tournaments. But hopefully, there'll be no need for that, since that's the reason why we've increased the numbers of players to 32.

3. In the First round, there have been a split into Day1 and Day2 tips. Day1 would also include any qualification matches which will be played on the day, therefore it is very important to check the schedule of each day carefully. Day2 tips will include the rest of the first round matches that have not been played, including any played on day3.


For your benefits, please ensure that you understand the rules prior the game start by reading the Introduction post or asking the TT Managers for more information.

Thank you very much.
