Tennis Tipping #11 - Dubai

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

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!

I'm running this tournament now instead of Deccy! Hopefully I can do a good job as a manager in my first tournament.

It was easier to start a new thread, when the manager changed in the last minute. All the previous commitments stay the same, no need to recommit!

There are 2 places still left in the singles! And 5 teams in the doubles!

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

El Guero, sorrowman, The Safinator, SaFed2005, HIM, tiptopdaisy, Buddy and Nathaliia!

Why don't you make 4 teams like:

El guero/sorrowman, TheSafinator/SaFed2005 HIM/tiptopdaisy and Buddy/Nathaliia

Anyone have problems with this pairing?

It is because it's my first tournament and I don't want to let anybody down! Plus I might withdraw because I still finally haven't made my mind up if to go to Wolfsburg or not, so why should anyone suffer.
We are teamed with Ville (Labamba) to play doubles in Sopot in August!

I will burn
And you will die...

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

The deadline for commitments closes in about 10 hours time. There is still room for new players in both singles and doubles!

The MTF Draws will be out on Sunday 12 PM CET.

Due to the changes made in the TT format to accommodate 32 players in the singles draw and 16 teams in the doubles, there are a few changes in the schedule of the game:

Here are the tentative schedules for TT singles and doubles (changes possible until I see the OOP for Day1):

TT Singles:
1R = 1st round matches played on Day 1
2R = Remainder of 1st round matches

QF = 2nd round matches
SF = QF matches
F = SF matches + Final

TT Doubles:
1R = all 1st round matches
QF = 2nd round matches
SF = QF matches
F = SF matches + Final
