Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

If a match ends 6-3 6-3 6-3 to Del Potro against Ferrero for example, and I put 6-3 6-3 6-3 to Del potro I won all sets correct scoreline, right?
And If I put 6-3 6-3 6-0 I win two, right?

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

Let's assume the following situation. Challengers A and B are taking place on the same week. Challenger A is crowded, they have to start qualifying on Saturday while challenger B has few players and so the deadline for singles commitments is extended to Sunday. Let's say there's a player X who's in the qualifying list of challenger A. It's late Friday night, the qualifying draw for challenger A has been done, the OOP has been published... And player X suddenly decides he wants to play challenger B instead. Is he allowed to switch so late?

Okay, thanks. Is he allowed to change after the final deadline but before the draw has been made?

# Correct SRs: 4-4
SR1 - SR5 - no decision (same picks)
SR6 - no decision (matches with retirement don't count in the TB system)
Just wondering if this post will be updated with the new retirement rule for SR Shootout. I stand to be corrected, but wouldn't Player A win with the new rule that if one player picked the winner in a retirement match and the other didn't, then he would win on SR shootout?

By the way...LOVE this post! If there's info that you can't find somewhere, here is ususally where you find it. Thanks for it!!

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

2010 Updates

COMMITMENTS

Rule) Top 30 & challengers in Davis Cup & Grand Slam 2nd weeks and when there are no ATP tournaments played: Top 30 players (singles & doubles) are allowed to play these challengers as late entries (LE).
Rule) Doubles commitments: Players are allowed to commit to doubles in week #1.
Rule) Top 30 DOUBLES players & Challengers: Top 30 doubles players are not allowed to play challengers. The same rules apply to singles and doubles.
Rule) Players must withdraw from the tournament they've previously entered before being accepted in the entry list of another tournament (as a late entry).
Q&A) Deleting commitments.

ENTRY LIST

Rule) Protected ranking (PR): Players are allowed to ask for a PR after they're back from their absence.
Important: They must request a PR before they commit to any tournaments.
Q&A) GS week #2 help.
Q&A) GS LL spots x GS week #1 challengers.
Q&A) Friday's play & SEs.

ex: Ljubo vs Blake SR1 -> result Ljubo def Blake 61 ret.
Match: Player A 12:12 Player B - SRs 5:5 (Player A picked Ljubo & Player B picked Blake)
Result: Player A wins on SR1 correct winner.
Rule) Number of SR matches: All matches as SRs.
Rule) Monday’s SRs for doubles (two-day round) – when the manager doesn’t say anything about them, they should go to the bottom of the SR order (for shootout purposes).
Q&A) SR winners rule change erased (not possible anymore).
Q&A) Examples updated.

- 250 (6 rounds) = 200, 140, 90, 50, 25, 10, 0 (+10 for qualifier)
Rule) Challengers & the WTF race: Challengers count for the WTF race.
Rule) WTF points, WTC points updated.
Rule) Schedule: Tuesday start, Saturday final updated.
Q&A) Nationality changes, DC/WTC team captains.

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

A few "newbie" questions, with apologies if they have been answered before somewhere. (I did try looking through the threads!)

1. The rules say "4 slams and 14 other tournaments to count for ranking". I have a low rank. If I don't enter a slam, or if I enter and lose in the QRs, do I count 0 points or can I count up to 18 other tournaments?

2. I have entered 4 tournaments this year but in both the singles and doubles ranking lists the second column shows as 2. Is this because I was only in 2 main draws, and losing in the qualifying rounds does not count as a tournament played?

3. If I get a bye or walkover in the first round and then lose in the second round, do I still get second round points, or do I have to win a match before I get anything?

M. T. F.
The biggest source of bullshit since cattle were domesticated.

1. if your ranking is not enough to play GS directly, points from other tournament will be counted

2. yes, just main draw appearance is counted

3. you don't get points for defeating a "bye"
