Tennis Tipping Davis Cup Final - Congrats Finland

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 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:


Code:
The Number Of Teams Per Round:
Davis Cup Round 1 - 16 TeamsDavis Cup Round 2 - 8 TeamsDavis Cup Round 3 - 4 TeamsDavis 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) who is scheduled to play is replaced by another in any of the rubbers, this match will be cancelled and not taken into consideration when calculating the number of correct picks.

How to Sign-Up:

1. As there are no team captains as such, I will give priority to the people who played in the last round - if they don't want to/can't play, only then can they be replaced by other people from that country who commit. In the next post there is a list of teams still left in the competition and the players who played in the first round. In the first instance, can all those players please confirm that they want to play in the Final.

2. There is a limit of 3 places per team - most teams only have 2 players. I will give details of how you can add a player once all the current players have confirmed their participation.


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).

Good Luck!

Re: Tennis Tipping Davis Cup Final

Davis Cup Matches
As the final is only tie there is a high possibility of lineup changes, therefore I would like you to send in tips for all possible matches. Below are the scheduled lineups with all alternative matches listed below that (Let me know if you think I missed any out). However this does mean that there are 16 possible singles and 36 doubles matches
If it's easier you can save work by saying, for example, Safin def all if you think Safin will win whoever he plays.
For doubles you can just say RUS def ARG in all matches or RUS def ARG except for the following.....and then list the line ups where you think ARG would beat RUS.
Please also send in scores for all matches.

Scheduled Matches

Day 3
Nikolay Davydenko (RUS) v David Nalbandian (ARG) TB1
Marat Safin (RUS) v Juan Ignacio Chela (ARG) TB2

Possible Alternatives
Davydenko vs Acasuso
Davydenko vs Calleri
Tursunov vs Nalbandian
Tursunov vs Acasuso
Tursunov vs Calleri
Tursunov vs Chela
Youzhny vs Nalbandian
Youzhny vs Acasuso
Youzhny vs Calleri
Youzhny vs Chela
Safin vs Acasuso
Safin vs Calleri


Good luck

One to go. Hopefully Smasher can make it!

So let's begin to focus for the big final. Any speculation about the selections? What about the court speed?
