Tennis Tipping – #1B Nouméa

http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/3347/noumacx4.jpg

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/showpost.php?p=4489037&postcount=1

- 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. 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: Nouméa, 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 vandersonfilho_12@hotmail.com

From Wikipedia

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/0/0f/Noumeacloudy.jpg/300px-Noumeacloudy.jpg
Noumea looking north showing new housing, 2006

Nouméa is the capital city of the French territory of New Caledonia. It is situated on a peninsula in the south of New Caledonia's main island, Grande Terre, and is home to the majority of the island's European, Polynesian (Wallisians, Futunians, Tahitians), Indonesian, and Vietnamese populations, as well as many Melanesians Demographics of Vanuatu and Kanaks that work in one of the South Pacific's most industrialised cities. The city lies on a protected deepwater harbour which serves as the chief port for New Caledonia.

Nouméa, the city, is the most "westernised" in the Pacific Islands region, with the exception of Hagåtña, Guam, and is a complete contrast to the rest of New Caledonia's wide open spaces, bare jagged hills, and largely Kanak population (although there also exist important concentrations of Europeans on the northwestern coast of New Caledonia's mainland, particularly around Bourail, Pouembout, and Koumac). Although Nouméa probably has the "best" climate in the South Pacific, with more sunshine days than any other Pacific Island capital, and some excellent beaches not far from the city centre, it is not currently a major tourist destination. The cost of living is high, and there is no cheap air-travel from the Pacific Rim. Nouméa's international airport is at Tontouta, the La Tontouta International Airport, 50 kilometres from the city, although there is an airport within the city, Magenta, which services local routes.

Welcome to Nouméa, guys!

Sunday is the last day to commit and to be sure that you are in the Main Draw at this Challenger (but I think that we won't have qualifying here). This tournament is very good for who will play the qualifying of the Australia Open in the following week, so you can training for the Grand Slam.

Thanks everybody that commited here! Good luck to you all! :wavey:

Do you make TT picks only by 1 round at a time or the whole draw at once??

I will post the Order of Play (OOP) of each round every day and update the draws. And you will pick a winner in every match that is in the OOP that I'll post (of course if you continuous in the tournament). You have to sent your picks to me by PM, so that your opponent doesn't know your picks. You can send your picks anytime until the beginning of play each day. You use the same picks for doubles and for singles.

Take a look in some examples:

EXAMPLE OOP:
Nalbandian v Saretta SR1 PTS
Davydenko v Monfils SR2
Youzhny v Nieminen SR3
Hewitt v Canas
Kiefer v Djokovic

CORRECT FORMAT TO SEND ME:
Saretta 6-2 5-7 6-4
Monfils 2-1
Youzhny 2-0
Hewitt
Djokovic

Do you understand?? If not, explain me more your doubts that I'll try to give you a complete answer.

I'm a big fan of Freddy Adu too!! hehehe :worship:

You have at about 5 hours and 30 minutes to send it to me... I hope every qualifiers can send. Anyway, I'll ask it to the board.

apparently i had a bye in the first quali round, so when do i send my first picks?

I will post the Order of Play (OOP) of each round every day and update the draws. And you will pick a winner in every match that is in the OOP that I'll post (of course if you continuous in the tournament). You have to sent your picks to me by PM, so that your opponent doesn't know your picks. You can send your picks anytime until the beginning of play each day. You use the same picks for doubles and for singles.

Take a look in some examples:

EXAMPLE OOP:
Nalbandian v Saretta SR1 PTS
Davydenko v Monfils SR2
Youzhny v Nieminen SR3
Hewitt v Canas
Kiefer v Djokovic

CORRECT FORMAT TO SEND ME:
Saretta 6-2 5-7 6-4
Monfils 2-1
Youzhny 2-0
Hewitt
Djokovic

Do you understand?? If not, explain me more your doubts that I'll try to give you a complete answer.

I'm a big fan of Freddy Adu too!! hehehe :worship:

Greetings! :wavey:


We pick the score too?? And thats not Freddy Adu in the pic, thats Todd Paul. EVen though Adu is a beast.

Today isn't necessary to you send your picks, but if you send, it can help you in the Count Back against your opponent.

Send me now your picks. These matches haven't started. They are the lasts of the official OOP. I just published the lasts matches, that might start at about in 5 hours.

Anyway, i'm not sure if it is allowed according the rules. I'll ask the board, but please, send ur picks to me now!

But Adu is very similar to Todd Paul.

Yeah... I have already seen it before in TT too, but I don't know if it is allowed according with the new rules of this season. Last year, for example "late picks" were allowed, but in this season they are ban.

Anyway, four players have sent me their picks: -Evita-, Stancho123, finishingmove and No Lets.

Well well.....have a nice tournament guys....but please don't just write "no picks from Goldmund" considering the fact that i waited till 3 o'clock in the morning yesterday for anyone to post an oop or just tell me which matches to take picks on...so i'm not lazy or oblivious ...i just didn't send picks because nobody told anyone to do so ;)

I understand your situation, but Blarghman has posted the OOP. :worship:

Some players have sent their picks, including your opponent. You should have do the same thing.

Well, I'm awfully sorry for this, but I couldn't do anything to avoid it. But it have passed and Noumea will have a great run now.

Later, I'll come back to post the Diffs of First Round and to update the first page!! Deadline is in a few hours.

Why isn't either monday oop or main draw in first page? Do you really expect people not to complain when no OOP and main draw aren't posted at first page and you don't receive their picks? I know it's hard to manage a tournament, but come on don't make the game harder to play because it's pretty easy if things are done the right way.

Manager??

Enjoy Incubus
01-05-2009, 01:13 AM
Ok, play has started and I had to do my stuff and couldn't send my picks. I'm gonna send them right now, late as expected. I just want to say to you Mr Manager, that if you won't have time, or if you won't be in the mood to update the first page, or if you simply don't fucking now what are the steps you have to follow to run a simple tourney as this challenger is, then you better not post in the managers thread that you'd like to manage a tournament, because it's not only that they won't let you run any other tournament in the future, but you're ruining the game this way man, you're just taking the fun away from it.

I'm so sorry partner because of the late picks, I just had to go right after I sent you the PM, it would have been pretty different if we had a nearly decent manager.

I admit that it's annoying not to have the OOP on the first page, but it has actually been posted twice on pages 11 and 13. It takes 30 seconds to scan through the pages of the thread to find it. It's hardly 'ruining the game', just an annoyance :shrug:

Actually, the OOP link was never on these pages, and it is not the users responsibility to have to search the 14 pages. The manager has a job and its not very hard. Users should not have to scroll through the 14 pages and have to open 2 boxes to make there picks. Who knows the all of the false-info and the wrong OOP users cpuld be posting on various pages. The manager needs to provide a simple link to avoid this nonsense.

I don't know what you mean with no OOP, Labamba posted it on page 11, and I have no idea what you mean by 'scrolling through 14 pages and open 2 boxes', you really are over-dramatizing it. I agree it's very annoying, but I have played in other tournaments where the front page was not updated or updated slowly, and most players still managed to figure it out. See for example Seoul CH, where the original manager was unable to update the thread (for a good reason, if I recall), and yet the tournament still ran smoothly. It is the responsibility of players to recognize when problems occur that they must be more diligent, and it is not the difficulty you portray it as. I just think there is some over-reaction.

In any case, I don't want to get in a big argument here. I think we both agree that we want vmbf to be diligent in updating the thread from now on, and the rest is not so important. :)

EnriqueIG8
01-05-2009, 02:29 AM
I agree with Blarghman, I mean come on people it's only a game and he's willing to manage it though it cost some time and I think he has done a good job thus far.
Yes he should have updated the first page but as Blarghman just said I asked for the OOP for Monday and it got postid on page 13 immediately 5 minutes after my post so please don't over-dramatize it. If you've sent late picks it is a pity but probably also your own fault and if not, well what is one missed tournament on a 52 week basis?

The manager knows what to do now and if he still doesn't handle the problem I'm sure he will not ask for more tournaments.

Good luck everybody :)

Enjoy Incubus
01-05-2009, 02:55 AM
I know it's not a big deal to search a bit, but I did look a bit for the OOP and couldn't find it, maybe because I expected it to be posted by the real manager of the tournament? :S I don't blame him for having connection problems, but if he was able to post OOP and main draw on pages 11 and 13 or whatever, he WAS able to post it on the first page so far. How much time could it take him to just copy OOP from page 13 to page 1? one minute, two? That's what I complain for, I don't need you to tell me that there are 52 weeks to play, that it takes just 30 seconds to search all over the pages, because I ALREADY KNOW that. What I say is: if you commit to doing something, do it decently, it's not that hard, I'm not asking that much. I commited to manage a tournament many times, and I'm sure I'm not the best manager ever but I did what I was asked for. I know he's trying to help by managing this tourney, but if you're not sure if you can update the first page at least, then DON'T COMMIT, there surely is more people willing to run a tournament that would have enough time to update it properly, that's all.

Blarghman
01-05-2009, 03:56 AM
I agree with you, Enjoy Incubus, that the first page should have been updated, I guess it is just different mileage for different people. I always get the OOP from the pages of the thread and not the front-page, so I didn't even notice. You are quite right that vmbf should have posted it there earlier today. I guess I just mostly objected to you saying he was 'ruining TT', when it is really more annoying than a serious problem with running the tournament.

That being said, hopefully vmbf will be back soon with diffs and such, since Tuesday's OOP is out. It is only 4 PM in Noumea, so results will still be some time in coming, though.

First one is to continue complaining about how terrible everything is :rolleyes:

Second one is we just try to get that tournament running, first one to get an OOP posts it and players try to follow the posts so they do not miss the OOP...:cool:

I personally prefer the second choice, so how about stop spamming complaints and leave the free space for results and OOPs like Blarghman is already trying to do? ;)

Fellows,

vmbf must be facing connection problems. He is also a member of a Brazilian forum and it has been 3 days since he doesn't enter there. He certainly didn't know he would have these problems when he asked for the tournament, and he can't call to Labamba to say he can't enter the internet. So it should be better that someone takes the job, as it has been done before.

No reason to complain about him. Just check his excellent job at last year's Asuncion challenger and you will see that it's not his fault this time.
