Tennis Tipping #17 - Houston


Welcome to Tennis Tipping Houston!

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 same applies for doubles, but you're in a team format and your scores are combined.


The Number Of Participants Per Round:

SINGLES:

Day 1 (including qualifying matches) = Tennis Tipping Round of 32
Remainder of R32 = Tennis Tipping Round of 16
R16 = TT-Quarterfinal
QF = TT-Semifinal
SF + F = TT-Final

DOUBLES:

R32 - 16 Teams
R16 - 8 Teams
QF - 4 Teams
SF + F - 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 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 12:00PM Sunday in Paris/Berlin.
For help with timezones, use this - www.timeanddate.com/worldclock.

Maximum Players for this tournament: 32
Maximum Doubles Teams for this tournament: 16

Entries into a tournament are based on a first-come, first-in basis.

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 #]. 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 should send in tips each day, even if you're not sure if you've made the next round. 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.

Good Luck! :wavey:

Preview:

Miami finalist Aiken Drum, Miami semifinalist scythe19pro and world no.3 el güero are the favourites of TT#17 in Houston. Despite a top 10 ranking in both singles and doubles, scythe19pro has never won a title and should be the most motivated this week. The Romanian refused playing doubles with Mara_M for the first time to play the singles here in Houston. Among the 23 players we have 6 previous champions: el güero (Zabreb), coreyschucky (Delray Beach), keqtqiadv (Vina del Mar), Aiken Drum (San Jose), Sylvester (Las Vegas) and robrulz5 (Indian Wells.) All the seeds have a bye in the first round.

In doubles, coreyschucky (with supertommyhaas) and LaTenista (with robrulz5) have the chance to become new #1, if Bubba08/Silverwhite don’t win in Valencia. Bubba08 recognised the danger and withdrew in the latest moment from Houston to play in the weaker doubles tournament in Valencia. But coreyschucky and LaTenista won’t have an easy way as there are other good teams like first seeds Aiken Drum/$@M, Melvins/Sylvester and keqtqiadv/scythe10pro, who are both top 15 players in singles, but the Brazilian has played only one doubles tournament so far.

Great preview JMG :lol: So, am I the only one in top 10 without a title? :o :crying2: The problem is that clay is my worst surface and I don't expect to do much damage during the clay season :p And the reason I'm not playing doubles with Mara_M is that she wanted to play in Valencia and I wanted Houston. :p
Anyway, in doubles keqtqiadv and I are playing the top seeds :scared: Definitley not an ideal first round match for us, but who knows, maybe we can cause an upset here :p

Yes, but don't forget to predict the score of the tiebreaker match.

" 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."

On Monday, you also have to predict the 4 qualifying matches.

So you won :worship:
My score was also 18, and you have a better 1st round score.
Just for curiosity, what was the score you bet? I don't believe it, I was almost to put 7/5 6/2, but I decided to go 7/5 6/4 in the last moment...

Let's win doubles!
my TB was 64 75 :haha:

I wasn't sure if the order is TB, CB, TB2, CB2 or TB, CB, CB2. In Dubai it was made with TB2 after CB and so I decided that keqtqiadv has won. I hope that's correct.

Why did i have to change from picking Melzer to win to picking Vicente! Knew it was a bad idea the moment i sent the pick to JMG

Relying on Fish to beat Spadea now really, which i am no longer anywhere near as confident with as i was earlier today. However, he has just broken back so things are looking up for him, plus i have him in 3 to win, so he could get away with losing the first set. Then, i have Haas over Roddick, which it seems that most people would have, so it may become nulified.

Come on Mardy!

Same here. I have Fish in 3 (75 46 63) and Haas. Spadea just won the first set 64. So far so good :)

Okay, i've got Goldstein and Haas for today, and with Goldstein a break up on Melzer that pick looks to be going well so far, and i can't see Haas losing to Fish, especially on clay.

Hopefully these two will both turn out as winners, even though they are the obvious choice

Since when was Goldstein the obvious choice? :lol:

Anyway, I'm ahead now and also picked Haas, so we'll have to pick opposite players in the final for you to have a chance. :p

I just couldnt see him losing to Melzer to be honest, but i should have learnt from the previous day when i was sure that Vicente would beat Melzer.

Oh well, i'm just going to have to try and pick a different person to you for today's match, but with it not being clear cut as to who will win, i dont know who to choose.

Well done for picking Melzer anyway

Finally, a pick against Melzer actually works.

I had Fish down to win, and if Shotgun Blues didnt have Fish, then i will have won the title, but if he had Fish as well, then congratulations to him.

I guess we'll have to wait for the scores to be updated, or for Shotgun to tell us what he picked
