Tennis Tipping # 19 - Barcelona



http://img2.menstennisforums.com/500/barcelona_2005.jpg

Welcome to Tennis Tipping Barcelona!

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 - 56 Players
Day 2 - 32 Players
Day 3 - 16 Players
R16 - 8 Players
QF - 4 Players
SF + F - 2 Players

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 5:00PM Sunday in London.
For help with timezones, use this - www.timeanddate.com/worldclock.

Maximum entries for singles - 56
Maximum entries for doubles - 24

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 #]. 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.

There are a certain number of participants who forget to send in their tips some rounds. So each round, the top 2-4 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 to avoid walkovers.

Good Luck! :wavey:

Many people say doubles with whoever needs a partner. If these people can actually ask someone personally then we can have more doubles teams, as it doesn't look to good for filling all the spaces.

I guess we need to wait for the TT draw first to know who you're playing against in singles and doubles. If you don't draw me in either competition, I can check your and alansk's and your opponents' scores! :wavey:

Sorry about how long it took, I'm going to do the doubles in a sec. Seeing as we have 15 teams, the top seeds will get a bye and everyone else will play in the first round. This means that the TT Final will actually have the semis and the final, so it will be out of 10 instead of 4.

Why don't you put all the doubles teams straight into round 32. Then give the 1st seed a bye in round 32 and everyone else plays. The rest will pan out automatically then :wavey:

There are a certain number of participants who forget to send in their tips some rounds. So each round, the top 2-4 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 to avoid walkovers.
Didn't we just change this rule a couple of weeks ago so that there are no LL's after round 2??

This is from invu2day's introductory post in the Casablanca tournament:

"If you go out the first round you must still send in your tips for the second round as there are a certain number of participants who forget to send in their tips. Only in the second round will the highest scoring losers from the first round be used as lucky losers if any second round player forgets to send their tips to avoid walkovers."

Oh shoot. I forgot I was playing him in doubles and already sent in my picks :o But the doubles isn't starting until the second round because of the number of teams we have, right? I think that's what was decided. :o

I have a bye in the first round of singles anyway and only sent in picks incase of a countback in the second round... so not a huge deal I guess.

SINGLES:

Day 1 - 56 Players
Remaining 1st Round Matches - 32 Players
R32 - 16 Players
R16 - 8 Players
QF - 4 Players
SF + F - 2 Players



gaynor, looking at the tomorrows order of play (9 matches of R64 + 4 matches of R32), wouldn't it be better to organize the rounds this way:

Day 1 - 56 Players
Day 2 - 32 Players
Day 3 - 16 Players
R16 (Day 4) - 8 Players
QF - 4 Players
SF + F - 2 Players

What do you think? The ties until the final wouldn't last over 2 days in this way. :wavey:

Despite you being closer I think the TB points would be the same and would I then win on higher ranking???
Did you pick Ferrer and Coria?

yes Ferrer and Coria. DK for the ranking...but given the stats of the match, it's far from over betwen gabash and wawa.

There were no picks from supertommyhaas ins ingles or doubles so LK_22 takes his place as a lucky loser. I got duncan's picks but they were late so I need to decide what to do. Also there were no picks from PaulHopkins in doubles.

I have a feeling we won't have to go by there. But still if it happens then I will remind me I won the first round with less games than my opponent. ;) (even if the ranking is quite an odd rule :p )

Correct me someone if I'm wrong, but isn't this the reason why it's always recommended to send your 1st round picks? Even if you had a bye :scratch: I don't know :p

Sorry to point this out Alansk but if your matchup is a tie including the tiebreak, Pixie will go through on countback. Players with a bye have always been asked to send in first round picks for countback purposes for this exact reason. Having said that most players with a bye still don't send in first round picks. You can verify this with any of the board of managers.


BUT UR LUCKY !!!!! WAWA just won :)

Thankyou for clarirying this again because that is what I thought was the case :) I sent in 1st round picks with a bye just in case.

However if my match is a tie I don't think we'll be needing a countback since I stuffed up my TB score :o

Deccy had Starace 6-4, 6-3

Well there is a difference in points between those two scores... someone with 6-4, 6-3 gets more points because the 6-4 is in the correct location.
