Tennis Tipping #34 ~ Båstad - Congrats to Shotgun Blues and Ville/GWH!!!

Tennis Tipping #34 ~ Båstad



The best Interenational Series tournament


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 participant 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:

Bastad Day 1  - TT R32
Bastad Day 2 - TT R16
Bastad Days 3 and 4 - TT QF
Bastad QF - TT SF
Bastad SF + F - TT Final

DOUBLES:

Bastad Days 1 and 2 (not counting qualifying matches) - TT R16
Bastad Days 3 and 4 - TT QF
Bastad QF - TT SF
Bastad SF + F - TT Final
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 counted as long as one point has been played. If players are replaced by a lucky loser after the start of Tennis Tipping, these matches will 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 Friday 7 June, 5:00 PM in Brasilia (possible change).
For help with timezones, use this - www.timeanddate.com/worldclock .

Maximum Singles 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 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: [Bastad, 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.

If you go out in the first round, you should still send in your tips for the second round as there are usually a certain number of participants who forget to send in their tips. Only in the second round will the highest scoring losers from the first round be used as lucky losers if any second round player forgets to send in their tips to avoid walkovers.

PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE

If the board goes down as has happened before, send your picks to murilo_esseka@yahoo.com.br

Re: Tennis Tipping #34 ~ Bastad

I am testing something out and seperating myself from Novak Djokovic for a week to see if not predicting his matches will help me.

So I commit and I need a doubles partner if anyone is interested.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

I'm in for singles
and doubles with blaze-2004

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.

Re: Tennis Tipping #34 ~ Bastad

I'm in for singles. Jessa do you have to give our partnership another shot, or do you want to part ways?

What would Anderson say?

Re: Tennis Tipping #34 ~ Bastad

This is my hometown tourney so I am in.

Labamba, are you playing the clay events after Båstad?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
