Tennis Tipping #02 - Doha
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.
The Number Of Participants Per Round:
Saturday - TT Q1
Sunday - TT Qualy Final Round
Monday - TT R32

- 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 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: Doha, day #]
. Picks can be sent in anytime until the beginning of play each day
. 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.
