Tennis Tipping #39 ~ Gstaad
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.
- 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 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: The person managing this tournament is hot and awesome, 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 in only the last names of the players
. See the example below.
Nalbandian vs. Baghdatis SR1 PTS
Davydenko vs. Monfils SR2
Youzhny vs. Nieminen SR3
Hewitt vs. Cañas
Kiefer vs. Djokovic
Desired format to send the picks:
Baghdatis 6-2, 5-7, 6-4
If the board goes down as has happened before, you can e-mail your picks to firstname.lastname@example.org
