2.# of SR right
3.SR Shootout
4.PTS
5.CB Picks from previous round
6.CB SR from previous round
7.CB SR Shootout from previous round
8.Game difference
9.Ranking

I'm reading the first couple of posts and it doesn't really specify anywhere specifically the order of how things work to determine LL, and I'm in a case in a tournament where it appears I've lost on CB SR's which is like 6th on my list
Yes, the LL order gets decided the same as a normal match when picks are tied.

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

I used:

How are LLs chosen?
1) Losers of qualifying final round (Final round most correct picks, SR's, PTS, previous round most correct picks, SR's, PTS, ...)
2) Losers of the previous round (Previous round most correct picks, SR's, PTS, ...)


from Tennis Tipping Rules & Questions

as my guide.

Do you want me to go through it with you to show you the steps I took?

I saw that too but I thought I seen it done like a regular match before so I was just asking to make sure. I've probably lost no matter how it goes but would you mind PMing me extremaduratenis' picks? More for my vertification than anything but I just won't be able to put it to rest until I know for sure

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

One of my TT players sent through a pick Seppi 3-0 for a best of 3 match, clearly meant to be a Seppi 2-0. I guess I have to accept it as is though? In other words, I want to clarify that we're not allowed to amend any picks apart from correct spelling mistakes in names, even if the number part of it is an obvious mistake, like someone sending a set won as 7-4 etc.

In my opinion a manager can never assume he knows what the player meant to type - it could really open a can of worms. How obvious is obvious? Yes, 74 is clearly wrong, but should it be 64 or 75?

I had a player a few weeks ago who picked Bohli (not in the OOP) instead of Bastl, and got quite upset that I refused to assume what he really meant!

I think if it's noticed in time a manager can send the player a PM suggesting they review their pick(s), but otherwise what they write is what has to be accepted.

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

According to the rules and FAQ thread someone who wants an SE has to apply for it. I can't find anywhere where it gives a deadline for this application. Can you clarify?

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

why on Tennis Tipping no have Wild Cards for players?

It will be very good if have Wild Cards for tournaments.

Like Bucareste give wild cards for Romenian players. Or on Brasil Open give wild cars for Brazilians.

I suppose if a player has entered the tournament anyway there's no need for applying for it
Otherwise, the deadline is the 2nd deadline afaik.

my tentative TT schedule
Monte Carlo (w/ TankingTheSet), Madrid (w/ Evita), Rome (w/ Gallina), French Open (/w Nando_L), Wimbledon (w/ Evita)

The manager should make a sum of the team's entry ranking points combined. Whoever has more points is listed first.
And if both teams have the same sum of entry ranking points? Which one is listed first?

This subject has previously been discussed, and the majority were against it. If you are good enough it doesn't take too long to get your ranking up high enough to gain entry to the tournaments you want to play in.

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

Can I have a ruling please?

Round 2 singles - 1 PTS match designated on the OOP.

Both players sent all matches as PTS (for doubles purposes)

Picks and SRs the same, PTS 1 the same.

Am I allowed to use their additional PTS picks to decide the round or am I only allowed to use the designated PTS1 pick and then move on to the next tiebreak method?

I believe you aren't allowed to do that, goes to CB directly. (I think)

If the rule isn't that way it ought to be , CB is less random than PTS
