Tennis Tipping #22a~ BuSaN Challenger
"Have a drink with us"
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:
Tuesday - TT R32
Wednesday - TT R16
Thursday - TT QF
Friday - TT SF
Saturday & Sunday - TT Final
Not enough teams
W - 84
F - 59
SF - 37
QF - 20
R16 - 8
R32 - 1
Q - 3
- 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.
- New TB method: 2007 TT TB Method

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: BuSaN, 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 final round of the qualifying, 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. The highest scoring losers from the qualifying finals will be used as lucky losers if any main draw player forgets to send in their tips
to avoid walkovers.
