Tennis Tipping #32d - Samarkand -Congratulations to Gallina and Kielian/stealthisnick



Tennis Tipping - Samarkand, Uzbekistan




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: 2008 TT TB System


- 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
http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...14&postcount=1


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: Samarkand 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. It will be highly appreciated if you send only the last names of the players. See the example below.


EXAMPLE OOP
Nalbandian v Baghdatis SR1 PTS
Davydenko v Monfils SR2
Youzhny v Nieminen SR3
Hewitt v Canas
Kiefer v Djokovic


Desired format to send the picks
Baghdatis 6-2 5-7 6-4
Monfils 2-1
Youzhny 2-0
Hewitt
Djokovic



Precautionary Measure


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

Re: Tennis Tipping #32d - Samarkand - Still some clay left for the clay court fans :)

OK, I have lost contact with my assistant manager - Tankman
So if he does not post anything until tomorrow - you can start committing tomorrow (Friday - July 17)
I'm sorry for posting it today, but I'll be away for the weekend.
Have fun!

I'm in, as well, which means that Ervin might have some work, if I guess a score
