Tennis Tipping #31A -- Vancouver -- Gongrats Luis Santos, tal20/tankman

Tennis Tipping – Vancouver


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.

Note:

- In case of a tie, a tie-breaker will decide who moves on to the next round.
New tie-break method: 2007 TT TB Method

- 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. Entries will be based on ranking. Everyone can commit.

Please read this post for more information
Tennis Tipping 2009 Rules Thread (out of date - use 2013 Rules)

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: ?, 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 after the play has started.

PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE

If the board goes down as has happened before, send your picks to miniemen@hotmail.com

Re: Tennis Tipping #31A -- Vancouver -- Blablablabla

TT Stats & Awards

Review Day 1

First round singles and doubles at the Vancouver Challenger yesterday. Here's a short review !

First, we have to apologise us, our regular review writer is sick and now I have to write this, but my english is very bad. I hope you all understand it

In singles, 5 seeded players didn't survived the first round. Only second seed, Tankman and sixth seed Dupuis2006 won their first round match. Firsth seed Tennis-Engineer had a bye and didn't had to play in the first round. The biggest surprise was the elimination off thirth seed tal20. He lost to insieme. After the match insieme sais:"I'm not really surprised, I'm in a good form, last week I played well at the San Marino Challenger and I hope play even better here." Tal20 wasn't happy with his elimination:"I knew I had a tough draw, but I should have won this match."

Also seventh seed Drikke lost his first round. After the match Drikke was very angry:"This loser Bogdanovic was playing on the court next to mine. Everytime I see him, he plays so bad, it's ridiculous. I lost my concentration and lost my match against a great opponent." MH0861 was very happy with this win:" I'm in good form, I won an exhibition tournament last week and I hope to win my first real title here. But I hope I can concentrate me on the tennis. We don't find my doubles partner In The Zone anymore. I hope everything is okay with him."

The best player off the day was Snoo Foo. He played extremely well and only made one small mistake. In the next round he will play against firsth seed Tennis-Engineer."Tennis-Engineer is a great player, he will be in the TT top 10 very soon. I'll have to play even better then today to win, but I hope I can do it."

Also Haute played very well today. He played the final off the San Marino Challenger last week and is in a great form. With this great win, he made himself one off the favourites the win here in Vancouver.

In the doubles tournament, all matches were called for the day at 10PM. Things are looking good for Machiavelli and Snoo Foo. They are leading +4. Also Albop and dlgicu are much up aftet In The Zone didn't showed up. Play will resume today.

Now you can win 250 vCash with our DTT Prize question, sponsored by Doubles Tennis Tipping. The question is:

If you want to play doubles at the DTT Olympics, your partners has to be from ...

A)The same country
B)The same country, but he can change his nationality
