Tennis Tipping - Davis Cup

Tennis Tipping - Davis Cup



Welcome to Tennis Tipping Davis Cup!

What is Tennis Tipping - Davis Cup?

In the game, participants will team up into teams of 2 (or 3 or ) from the same country. Both participants in the team pick the winners of all matches in all ties (singles and doubles). If there are more than 2 on a team, you can have one tipping the doubles or whatever you think is best. Teams are placed into a knock-out format (just like the actual Davis Cup), also known as a tie.

In a tie, players will be matched up just like in the real Davis Cup. You will play both players from the other team, as well as a doubles match. Certain Davis Cup matches in each tie will be assigned to each match. This is an example for a complete tie. :

FIRST MATCH (First Days Singles) :
Player A (AUS) v. Player C (ENG)
Player B (AUS) v. Player D (ENG)


SECOND MATCH (Doubles) :
Player A/Player B (AUS) v. Player C/Player D (ENG)

THIRD MATCH (Last Days Singles) :
Player B (AUS) v. Player C (ENG)
Player A (AUS) v. Player D (ENG)


Code:
The Number Of Teams Per Round:

Davis Cup Round 1 - 16 Teams
Davis Cup Round 2 - 8 Teams
Davis Cup Round 3 - 4 Teams
Davis Cup Final - 2 Teams
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 wins the match. For all participants, this tie-breaker match is the same and will be assigned beforehand.
- In case a player (i.e. the actual Davis Cup Player) retires in a match, this match will be cancelled and not taken into consideration when calculating the number of correct picks. If players are replaced by a lucky loser after the start of Tennis Tipping, these matches will also be cancelled.


How to Sign-Up:

Just post here that you would like to play.
You must commit before the designated time. For this tournament, that time is 9:00PM Thursday in Melbourne on 9th February.
For help with timezones, use this - www.timeanddate.com/worldclock.

Maximum Teams for this tournament: 16

How to send in picks:

Picks can be sent in as soon as the draw is released. Remember, you pick a winner in every match in every tie! Picks should be sent by PM, so that your opponent does not know your picks. Picks should be titled: TT: Davis Cup Picks can be sent in anytime until the beginning of play in the first tie. No changes can be made.


It sounds a bit complicated, but it will be easier to understand once the draws for each of the ties come's out. Just remember, you have to pick the winner of every match in every tie (even doubles).

For now, just make a team with a fellow countryman/woman and I'll be able to explain it better once the draw comes out.

Good Luck!

Re: Tennis Tipping - Davis Cup | Sign-Up (Teams)

Okay, so i've introduced davis cup to give you a go at a teams event for Tennis Tipping!

Please find a fellow countryman/woman and sign-up.

Countries with 2 or more Tennis Tipping participants:

Australia
USA
Great Britain (combining Wales, Northern Ireland and England)
Israel
Argentina
Chile
Finland
Netherlands
Germany
Canada

If you're the only Tennis Tipping player from your country, find another and introduce them to the game.
If there are 4 or more players from the one country, you can form two teams. Eg: Australia 1 & Australia 2. But if there are too many teams entering, the Country 2 teams will be the first to be omitted.
