Tennis Tipping #3 - Vina Del Mar

http://www.atptennis.com/en/graphics/tournamentlogos/vina190x67.jpg

Welcome to Tennis Tipping Vina Del Mar!

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 participants and whoever predicted the winner of most matches correctly, moves on to the next round.


The Number Of Participants Per Round:

R32 - 16 Players
R16 - 8 Players
QF - 4 Players
SF + F - 2 Players

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 moves on to the next round. For all participants, this tie-breaker match is the same and will be assigned beforehand.
- In case a player (i.e. the actual ATP 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 can only play one tournament per week.
You must commit before the designated time. For this tournament, that time is 9:00PM Sunday in Melbourne.
For help with timezones, use this - www.timeanddate.com/worldclock.

Maximum Players for this tournament: 16

Currently, entries into a tournament are based on a first-come, first-in basis. If the maximum spots for this tournament are filled, you have two options:

1. Join another tournament with less entries.
2. Become an alternate, where you send in your first round tips the same as everyone else, and will replace a participant in the MTF Main Draw who does not send in thier tips.

How to send in picks:

Picks can be sent in as soon as all qualifiers have been placed. 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: [tournament, day # or round]. Picks can be sent in anytime until the beginning of play each day. Because of the chances of 1st and 2nd Round matches being played on the same day, you have the option of sending in your tips by the round or by the day. No changes can be made.

NEW RULE: There are a certain number of participants who forget to send in their tips some rounds. So each round, the top 4 ranked losers will be alternates, where they send in their tips, and replace another player who didn't send in his/her tips for the round. That way, there's no walkovers.

Good Luck! :wavey:

Sorry Buffel, Zagreb has filled up. You have the choice of here or Delray Beach, or you could be first alternate in Zagreb, but you might not get to play then.

DeccyB123
01-24-2006, 11:07 AM
OK, for this tourny, it will be different to the Australian Open. You' have a choice to either send in your tips daily (like suicide tennis) or send them in by round, because sometimes 1st and 2nd round matches are played on the same day. Whatever suits the tournament format. Send them in even if you don't know whether you've made the second round or not.

But they should feel the effects of jet lag , fatigue and change of surface ;) , so they shoud have pulled out of Viña del Mar :p

No, we need to send first round pics. Previous rounds points can be used in case of a tie (in normal pics and in tb match score).

And Rosie, bad luck, but this just goes to show, when 1 point down heading into the final, you should probably pick the underdog. The player who's leading will normally go the safe option, and picking the underdog would've been your only chance of winning. :wavey:
