Tennis Tipping #3 - Brisbane

http://www.abc.net.au/reslib/200801/r216038_840493.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.

The TB system has been changed for 2009.

- 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

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: ?, Monday/Tuesday etc]. 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 (my MTF username @ yahoo.com).

No she didn't really.. not carrot. More a mousey colour from memory (it's been a while).. but I remembered seeing Guccione on her credit card and then when Gooch made the final of Adelaide they showed her on TV in the stands and I knew for sure it was her :yeah:

Yeah the distribution is a little funny. But the cut will decrease quickly if a few more reasonably ranked players commit.

If you want to see a poor entry-list check out Chennai (one player out of the top-40). ;)

No:sad:Sorry:sad:

Can I withdraw from here, since I will get bumped down to alt list anyways? If so, then I will withdraw and go enter a challenger. Thanks:)

I wouldn't do it, firstly your place here is guaranteed (nobody who committed before the first deadline today will get bumped out of anything, late entries go at the end of the cue) and secondly if you commit to a challenger as a Late Entry you still run the risk of being bumped out of the main draw (or worse) there.

:wavey: Be aware that the tie-break rules for 2009 have changed a bit. The PTS rules have not changed. Also all matches (up to 20) are SR matches.


Note: Matches with retirement won't count in the TB system.

1. Total # of Set Ratios correct: 1-20 (20 where possible) > if same then

2. Set Ratio shoot-out: 1-20 (compare SR1, SR2, SR3, etc.) > if same then

Note: When both players pick the loser, the shoot-out win goes to the one who gave more sets to the winner.

3. PTS 1 (1-20 in all first round matches)

Both players have incorrect winner in the PTS match: +2 points for every set predicted for the winner

Correct order of sets for:

1 set – 1 point
2 sets – 4 points
3 sets – 7 points
4 sets – 10 points
5 sets – 13 points

Correct scoreline for:

1 set – 3 points
2 sets – 6 points
3 sets – 9 points
4 sets – 12 points
5 sets – 15 points


The main change is in the SR shout-out. If player A picked Guccione 2-1 and player B picked Guccione 2-0, and the result is Delic def. Guccione, then player A wins on SR-shoot-out when considering that match because he gave a set to Delic.

TankingTheSet
01-03-2009, 12:02 AM
Well, the deadline has passed.

Be aware of the rule change this year, any late picks basically means a w.o. for the opponent. Only if the opponent doesn't sent picks, then sending late picks can still make you win the match.



8. Late Picks
- No late picks allowed, even if there are no LLs available. Other player will be given a w/o. If both players don't send, then late picks > no picks. Also 0 points > no picks (in a 2-day round sending on one day is enough to avoid a walkover).

Sorry, I was pulling a practical joke on you. It worked too. :devil:



Guccione 6-0 6-0


:worship:

It's a safe pick, Firstly because the score is very likely, and secondly because the chance of SR16 PTS being decisive is 0.00000000000001%. ;)

Maybe I'm wrong but I can't check now cos I'm on my mobile
