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)
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
- 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 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.
