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.

Note:

- In case of a tie, a tie-breaker will decide who moves on to the next round.
New tie-break method: http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=114109

- 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 Sign-Up:

Just post here that you would like to play. You can only play one tournament per week.
This means: You cannot play here if you play Tennis Masters Cup in singles or doubles.
Entries will be based on ranking. Everyone can commit. :D

Please read this post for more information
http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=4423014&postcount=1

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: ?, 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.

PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE

If the board goes down as has happened before, send your picks to zackstennis@web.de

MONDAY REPORT

Risky play did not pay off on the first day of the Astana president's cup. All players who tried to cut out their rivals with an unexpected move, finally lost their matches. Paris runner-up JMG even caused riots on the streets of Astana when he played the so called Gasparyan shot which never before had been seen on the TT tour. The shot indeed looked wretched, and Kazakh gamblers, who lost loads of vcash today, claimed the German's match against his long time doubles partner Bolar Bolabi would have been fixed. They demanded an investigation. It surely was a wise move from Kazakh president Nursultan Nazarbayev to move his country's capital (and the president's cup) to the quiet town of Astana. In busy Almaty, the Gasparyan incidend could have caused a civil war.

Top seed FiBeR finally calmed down the crowd declaring that the Gasparyan shot was supposed to be a quite effective one. "I was in fact thinking about trying that shot myself :haha: :haha: :haha:, he said.

Many other doubtful shots like Basilashvili or even Makeev were seen today. TT experts were very disappointed that nobody tried the legendary Donskoy shot.

QUALY SUNDAY REPORT

On the second day of qualifying for the Astana President's Cup there was little action. MZverev-Fan an Dun I Love, who had already missed the first day, again did not show up.

MZverev-Fan was right when he assumed he would have no chance against stasm anyway. Stasm showed a solid performance and again scored three points. Starluk made three points as well and gave jmjhb no chance to come back into the match though jmjhb tried hard.

However, Dun I Love - claiming the Aachen semifinal would have been to exhausting - wasted a big chance as opponent l_mac obvioulsy felt too sure about the victory and didn't even bother to show up either.

The best match of the day was the one between alternate zxcv and unranked rookie jordanaus. jordanaus won with a perfect score on the second day while zxcv had to pay for joining the competition too late on saturday and may still have been affected by the intransperent discussions about the question whether he was allowed to enter the tournament. TT experts now are looking forward to the first round match between jordanaus and Aachen finalist Drikke.

On monday, spectators may see some more high class tennis tipping. Several main draw players have already been spotted at the venue preparing their matches. There is some hope that the rate of late picks will be significanty lower tomorrow.


QUALY SATURDAY REPORT

There is no doubt that the Astana president's cup is held at a very remote place for most european TT players who had to travel across several counrties they had never heard before to reach Kazakhstans capital. 12 o'clock noon turned out to be a too early start for four of the eight qualifying competitors. When jmjhb and MZverev-Fan finally arrived at the venue their opponents Starluk and stasm had already served one ace after the other and easily taken the first set. Kubecki and Dun I Love haven't been seen until this very moment and are believed to be still asleep in ther hotel room. So jordanaus and l_mac had an easy start as well.

Chilean doubles specialist zxcv, who appeared on a practice court nearby when play had already started, ask whether he could still join the competition. The TT officials were unsure what to do with zxcv and even called ATP chief executive Etienne de Villiers in London who made a decision that was revised later. "I was contacted late at night my time and did not fully understand the issues being discussed", de Villiers had to admit. Now the TT board - which is known for working much more professionally than its ATP counterpart - is taking over.

However, as qualy matches will go on tomorrow, the players who showed up late today still have a little chance to turn their matches around.

Keep in mind that the special exempts may indeed be needed as Drikke and Dun I Love are playing semis in Aachen today. I extended the deadline for late commitments to 6 p.m. CET. I originally set an earlier deadline but the qualy draw won't be made before play in Aachen is finished anyway.

I will post the qualy OOP as soon as it's available. All players who are on the qualy list by now should send picks.

(I would very much appreciate SeagullUK and alonsofz to confirm that they have noticed they have been asked to team up for doubles. :))

QUALY SATURDAY REPORT

There is no doubt that the Astana president's cup is held at a very remote place for most european TT players who had to travel across several counrties they had never heard of before to reach Kazakhstans capital. 12 o'clock noon turned out to be a too early start for four of the eight qualifying competitors. When jmjhb and MZverev-Fan finally arrived at the venue their opponents Starluk and stasm had already served one ace after the other and easily taken the first set. Kubecki and Dun I Love haven't been seen until this very moment and are believed to be still asleep in ther hotel room. So jordanaus and l_mac had an easy start as well.

Chilean doubles specialist zxcv, who appeared on a practice court nearby when play had already started, ask whether he could still join the competition. The TT officials were unsure what to do with zxcv and even called ATP chief executive Etienne de Villiers in London who made a decision that was revised later. "I was contacted late at night my time and did not fully understand the issues being discussed", de Villiers had to admit. Now the TT board - which is known for working much more professionally than its ATP counterpart - is taking over.

However, as qualy matches will go on tomorrow, the players who showed up late today still have a little chance to turn their matches around.

ZackBusner
11-01-2008, 02:25 PM
zxcv will replace Kubecki or Dun I Love. The final position in the draw is still to be determined. He made one point today (Ikramov). Two picks were late. One pick was wrong.

QUALY SUNDAY REPORT

On the second day of qualifying for the Astana President's Cup there was little action. MZverev-Fan an Dun I Love, who had already missed the first day, again did not show up.

MZverev-Fan was right when he assumed he would have no chance against stasm anyway. Stasm showed a solid performance and again scored three points. Starluk made three points as well and gave jmjhb no chance to come back into the match though jmjhb tried hard.

However, Dun I Love - claiming the Aachen semifinal would have been to exhausting - wasted a big chance as opponent l_mac obvioulsy felt too sure about the victory didn't even bother to show up either.

The best match of the day was the one between alternate zxcv and unranked rookie jordanaus. jordanaus won with a perfect score on the second day while zxcv had to pay for joining the competition too late on saturday and may still have been affected by the intransperent discussions about the question whether he was allowed to enter the tournament. TT experts now are looking forward to the first round match between jordanaus and Aachen finalist Drikke.

On monday, spectators may see some more high class tennis tipping. Several main draw players have already been spotted at the venue preparing their matches. There is some hope that the rate of late picks will be significanty lower tomorrow.

Exactly.

You have the same set ratios. So your PTS tips will decide.
SeagullUK: Kravchuk 6-1 6-4, Istomin 7-6 6-3
Starluk: Kravchuk 6-4 6-2, Istomin 6-4 6-4.

I'll check PTS 3-8 later if they are needed.

diego36arg won :yeah:
Sorry Gallina :hug: I missed the PTS2 diff.

Zack, the definition of the matches for points.
It is the sum of all the differences of matches with PTS.
This way you keep in mind the exact result of one set and it doesn't add of total Pts.
Does shootout of PTS exist?

The PTS results are not added. PTS works by shoot-out only. :wavey:

MONDAY REPORT

Risky play did not pay off on the first day of the Astana president's cup. All players who tried to cut out their rivals with an unexpected move, finally lost their matches. Paris runner-up JMG even caused riots on the streets of Astana when he played the so called Gasparyan shot which never before had been seen on the TT tour. The shot indeed looked wretched, and Kazakh gamblers, who lost loads of vcash today, claimed the German's match against his long time doubles partner Bolar Bolabi would have been fixed. They demanded an investigation. It surely was a wise move from Kazakh president Nursultan Nazarbayev to move his country's capital (and the president's cup) to the quiet town of Astana. In busy Almaty, the Gasparyan incidend could have caused a civil war.

Top seed FiBeR finally calmed down the crowd declaring that the Gasparyan shot was supposed to be a quite effective one. "I was in fact thinking about trying that shot myself, he said.

Many other doubtful shots like Basilashvili or even Makeev were seen today. TT experts were very disappointed that nobody tried the legendary Donskoy shot.

Nobody was on Jun. But Betty gets a consolation prize because she was the only one who picked Tursunov 2-1.
