Doubles Tennis Tipping #1
DOHA (and CHENNAI / BRISBANE)


http://i268.photobucket.com/albums/jj35/trucul/doha_intro.jpg


What is Doubles Tennis Tipping?

In the game, participants pick the winners of all doubles 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 2009 will be used.

- 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 Doubles Tennis Tipping, these matches will be cancelled.

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: [DTT: ?, 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. 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 trucul2008@hotmail.fr

Friday, January 2nd:

DTT season has officially started ! Draws for first tournament of the year are now available. In DTT Singles, a few seeded players already face a tough draw: diego36arg (vs. Duncan), lucho_coria (vs. nevito) and trucul (vs. Jens) will face a difficult first round. In DTT Doubles, Björki/Dupuis2006 vs. Boarder35m/Jens and Drikke/MZverev-Fan vs. Deathless Mortal/vmbf are undoubtedly the clashes of the first round. But, before main draw starts (on Monday), 3 qualifying matches will take place with Brisbane doubles matches on Sunday and Monday. It will be interesting to see how the 2 newcomers, Yves. (vs. kai.) and sharas36 (vs. Netin!) will behave around 2 good opponents. The 3rd match (Eljab vs. Nando_L) will decide who will be the second Swiss in Main Draw (maldini being first one).

I will publish official deadline early tomorrow Saturday. In the meantime, do not hesitate to play vCash by trying to guess who will be the DTT winners of this tournament.

Talk to you soon !


Thursday, January 1st:

Welcome to Doha (and Chennai/Brisbane) for the first DTT tournament of 2009. First of all, I wish all of you a Happy New Year 2009 and all the best for this new season of DTT. The kick-off of this new season will take place in less than 24 hours: tomorrow Friday 22:00 CET, the deadline for commitments will be closed and the draws of Singles and Doubles will be made. Due to the great number of participants (very encouraging for a first tournament), qualies will be played and will start with Sunday Matches at Brisbane (around 01:00 am CET). Yves. and sharas36 will compete in these qualies and, as newcomers, are welcome to this DTT Game.

Note that some slight changes have been applied to the DTT Rules 2009:

- first of all, rules of TT 2009 will be used also for DTT:

http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=90040

Especially with an updated Tie-Break system:

http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=135174

One important thing to know is that you need to make sure that your picks are sent before deadline set by manager. If picks are not available at that time (even if first point is not played), you will be considered as losing by w.o.

- the specific rules related to DTT are following ones:

- DTT Masters Finals qualification will be based on a new system which is a mix of best Doubles pairs and best individuals. I will detail this is an upcoming newsletter but the objective is to give the choice to the DTT players whether they wish to play with the same partner during the whole year or whether they want to play with different partners.

- when a match scheduled for a day is postponed from more than 1 day, this match will be cancelled from the initial Order of Play under certain conditions.

For this first week of the year, do not hesitate to ask me if you are not sure about some of these new rules.

Note also that this week will also include one vCash competition (similar to what was done at DTT Cincinnati last year). The best players of the week will earn vCash at the end of the week. This will be based on many small events during this week (predict the correct score, quizz, DTTT, ...). Every evening, I will publish the event of the upcoming day (number of events will depend on my availability). If there are good feedbacks for this first week, we may have in 2009 a parallel ranking for vCash DTT and the best of the years could earn vCash bonus at the end of the year ...). Stay tuned after the draw tomorrow for more ...

Now, coming to the DTT competition itself, less than 24 hours before deadline and draws, 14 of the best DTT Singles 16 players are there (only MuriloBrasil and NoFroz are missing, because they prefer to extend their vacations before first Grand Slam of the year ...). I will comment on that more in details after the draws but the favourites for this week are the best ranked players (Björki wishing to win a second title after Roland Garros, diego36arg looking for a 4th DTT Singles title but also nevito and Duncan who are relatively new to this game but had the best winning percentage in the last months of 2008).

In DTT Doubles, Björki/Dupuis2006 have won the last 3 DTT tournaments (Lyon, Paris and Masters Finals). They will try to continue this incredible winning streak, especially if JeffCandoi/MuriloBrasil are not playing this tournament. lucho_coria/Tzar, who will try to get their revenge of Shanghai, and diego36arg/trucul are the most serious contenders.

That is all for today. More after the draws are done tomorrow 22:00 CET. :wavey:

I have just realized that Brisbane will start on Sunday, January 4th.

http://www.atpworldtour.com/en/common/TrackIt.asp?file=/en/tournaments/fullcalendar/2009_atp.pdf

And due to timezone (+9 hours compared to CET), this means that first matches could start around Sunday 01:00 CET.

In the same document, I have noticed that Doha final would be on Saturday.

So, I prefer to close the official commitment dates exceptionnally on Friday, January 2nd, 22:00 CET. There is a huge probability that some qualies will have to be played (considering number of commitment so far and based on the fact that many regular players have not committed yet), the tournament will start with qualies based on Sunday's Brisbane matches (night of Saturday to Sunday CET). If there are not enough matches or there is a need to have more than a 1-round qualy, the rest of qualies will be based on Monday's Brisbane matches (in the night of Sunday to Monday CET).

First round of DTT Singles Main Draw will take place with Chennai/Doha matches starting on Monday.

Thursday, January 1st:

Welcome to Doha (and Chennai/Brisbane) for the first DTT tournament of 2009. First of all, I wish all of you a Happy New Year 2009 and all the best for this new season of DTT. The kick-off of this new season will take place in less than 24 hours: tomorrow Friday 22:00 CET, the deadline for commitments will be closed and the draws of Singles and Doubles will be made. Due to the great number of participants (very encouraging for a first tournament), qualies will be played and will start with Sunday Matches at Brisbane (around 01:00 am CET). Yves. and sharas36 will compete in these qualies and, as newcomers, are welcome to this DTT Game.

Note that some slight changes have been applied to the DTT Rules 2009:

- first of all, rules of TT 2009 will be used also for DTT:

http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=90040

Especially with an updated Tie-Break system:

http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=135174

One important thing to know is that you need to make sure that your picks are sent before deadline set by manager. If picks are not available at that time (even if first point is not played), you will be considered as losing by w.o.

- the specific rules related to DTT are following ones:

- DTT Masters Finals qualification will be based on a new system which is a mix of best Doubles pairs and best individuals. I will detail this is an upcoming newsletter but the objective is to give the choice to the DTT players whether they wish to play with the same partner during the whole year or whether they want to play with different partners.

- when a match scheduled for a day is postponed from more than 1 day, this match will be cancelled from the initial Order of Play under certain conditions.

For this first week of the year, do not hesitate to ask me if you are not sure about some of these new rules.

Note also that this week will also include one vCash competition (similar to what was done at DTT Cincinnati last year). The best players of the week will earn vCash at the end of the week. This will be based on many small events during this week (predict the correct score, quizz, DTTT, ...). Every evening, I will publish the event of the upcoming day (number of events will depend on my availability). If there are good feedbacks for this first week, we may have in 2009 a parallel ranking for vCash DTT and the best of the years could earn vCash bonus at the end of the year ...). Stay tuned after the draw tomorrow for more ...

Now, coming to the DTT competition itself, less than 24 hours before deadline and draws, 14 of the best DTT Singles 16 players are there (only MuriloBrasil and NoFroz are missing, because they prefer to extend their vacations before first Grand Slam of the year ...). I will comment on that more in details after the draws but the favourites for this week are the best ranked players (Björki wishing to win a second title after Roland Garros, diego36arg looking for a 4th DTT Singles title but also nevito and Duncan who are relatively new to this game but had the best winning percentage in the last months of 2008).

In DTT Doubles, Björki/Dupuis2006 have won the last 3 DTT tournaments (Lyon, Paris and Masters Finals). They will try to continue this incredible winning streak, especially if JeffCandoi/MuriloBrasil are not playing this tournament. lucho_coria/Tzar, who will try to get their revenge of Shanghai, and diego36arg/trucul are the most serious contenders.

That is all for today. More after the draws are done tomorrow 22:00 CET. :wavey:

Here it is for DTT Draws. First DTT OOP of the year will be on Saturday morning CET when Sunday OOP of Brisbane will be known. Doubles matches of Brisbane Sunday (and potentially Monday if not enough matches) will be used for DTT Singles Qualifying round.

DTT Main Draw will start on Monday with Chennai/Dubai Doubles matches.

Now that draws are made, let us talk a little bit about vCash game ...

This week will also include one vCash competition (similar to what was done at DTT Cincinnati last year). The best players of the week will earn vCash at the end of the week. This will be based on many small events during this week (predict the correct score, quizz, DTTT, ...). Every evening, I will publish the event of the upcoming day (number of events will depend on my availability). If there are good feedbacks for this first week, we may have in 2009 a parallel ranking for vCash DTT and the best of the years could earn vCash bonus at the end of the year ...).

So, here is vCash Event for Saturday:

vCash Event for Saturday:

Event #1: DTT winners. Deadline: Monday 01:00 am CET.
Give your pick for the DTT Singles Doha Championship winner and DTT Doubles Doha Championship winning team. If you find the correct winner, you will get +10 points bonus in vCash race.

Friday, January 2nd:

DTT season has officially started ! Draws for first tournament of the year are now available. In DTT Singles, a few seeded players already face a tough draw: diego36arg (vs. Duncan), lucho_coria (vs. nevito) and trucul (vs. Jens) will face a difficult first round. In DTT Doubles, Björki/Dupuis2006 vs. Boarder35m/Jens and Drikke/MZverev-Fan vs. Deathless Mortal/vmbf are undoubtedly the clashes of the first round. But, before main draw starts (on Monday), 3 qualifying matches will take place with Brisbane doubles matches on Sunday and Monday. It will be interesting to see how the 2 newcomers, Yves. (vs. kai.) and sharas36 (vs. Netin!) will behave against 2 good opponents. The 3rd match (Eljab vs. Nando_L) will decide who will be the second Swiss in Main Draw (maldini being first one).

I will publish official deadline early tomorrow Saturday. In the meantime, do not hesitate to play vCash by trying to guess who will be the DTT winners of this tournament.

Talk to you soon !

And in doubles, I don't see the name of JeffCandoi. And we don't have qualifying. If he agree, can we be an alternate, and if any double don't send your picks, we'll be in the main draw?

A little bit more than 4 hours remaining before deadline. I currently don't have picks from kai., Nando_L and Netin! (+ MuriloBrasil as alternate).

I won't be able to post diffs at 03:00 am CET. I guess I will post them around 07:00 am CET. However, if picks are late compared to deadline (03:00 am CET), I will apply the new TT/DTT rule. It will be considered as a w.o.

If there is an alternate (or more if anybody wants to commit now), the alternate will play the DTT player who has the lower ranking.

Do not forget also to send picks for the Main Draw DTT in Doha (deadline when matches start but it is better to do it before 13:30 CET). Even if you play qualies (whether you win or lose), you need to send these picks too.

OOP Monday DTT Main Draw:

Monday DTT Main Draw is a 1-day for DTT Singles first round and day 1 of a 2-day round for DTT Doubles. Everybody needs to send picks (even if you play qualies).

Ross HUTCHINS/Andy MURRAY (GBR/GBR) vs. Christopher KAS/Philipp KOHLSCHREIBER (GER/GER) SR1 PTS1/SR PTS
Michal MERTINAK/Potito STARACE (SVK/ITA) vs. Lukasz KUBOT/Dmitry TURSUNOV (POL/RUS) SR2 PTS2/SR PTS
Marc LOPEZ/Rafael NADAL (ESP/ESP) vs. Oscar HERNANDEZ/Albert MONTANES (ESP/ESP) SR3 PTS3/SR PTS

Fabrice SANTORO/Mikhail YOUZHNY (FRA/RUS) vs. Abdulla HAJJI/Lamine OUAHAB (QAT/ALG) SR5 PTS5/SR PTS

All matches are played in Doha.

For DTT Doubles, SR PTS will be in that order but will have lower priorities than those of DTT Tuesday.
You cannot send different picks for DTT Singles and Doubles.


All, send picks to trucul except:

alex_k, Yves, diego36arg, trucul, Jens: send picks to Boarder35m.

Deadline is when matches start (third match after 2 matches which start at 13:30 CET) :wavey: (with new DTT rules, all picks sent after this deadline will be considered as a w.o)


Is DTT always this weird? I received a message from Trucul with those second series of matches, so I tipped the winners etc. and I thought I was done. But now I see I'm too late with these matches! Is that a w/o for alex_k and me?

I am sorry for you. It was clear in the headline of first thread and in OOP that all send picks by 13:30 CET ... I have also insisted in OOP and in the thread that if you play qualies you should also send it ... Maybe, I should have insisted more.

For doubles, the rule is that you are not out if you both send picks tomorrow (this is a 2-day first round). But, I guess it will be difficult to win.

Before publishing second part of the DTT Singles result, I will publish official DTT OOP since I have Chennai OOP (2 matches):

http://www.chennaiopen.org/resultsandschedule


Currently, Doha OOP is available with 3 doubles matches and will be used for DTT.

http://www.atpworldtour.com/en/common/TrackIt.asp?file=/1/posting/2009/451/op.pdf

Brisbane matches are not compatible with timezone so they won't be used for DTT.

http://www.atpworldtour.com/en/common/TrackIt.asp?file=/1/posting/2009/339/op.pdf

I will use some of them for vCash. ;)

Very funny when Franky tries to calm down Dani ... These 2 ones are very opposite but they are very complementary: Franky is very cool, tall and has a huge serve (227 Km/h is his best serve according to http://www.topspintennis.de/steckbriefe/moser.php ), good net coverage while Crazy Dani is ... hmmm ... very nervous, breaks his racket on the floor, curses everybody ... and has very good background strokes. ;)

I am sorry for you. It was clear in the headline of first thread and in OOP that all send picks by 13:30 CET ... I have also insisted in OOP and in the thread that if you play qualies you should also send it ... Maybe, I should have insisted more.

For doubles, the rule is that you are not out if you both send picks tomorrow (this is a 2-day first round). But, I guess it will be difficult to win.

Before publishing second part of the DTT Singles result, I will publish official DTT OOP since I have Chennai OOP (2 matches):

http://www.chennaiopen.org/resultsandschedule


Currently, Doha OOP is available with 3 doubles matches and will be used for DTT.

http://www.atpworldtour.com/en/common/TrackIt.asp?file=/1/posting/2009/451/op.pdf

Brisbane matches are not compatible with timezone so they won't be used for DTT.

http://www.atpworldtour.com/en/common/TrackIt.asp?file=/1/posting/2009/339/op.pdf

I will use some of them for vCash. ;)

Deadline will be 13:30 CET.

For the future, I know know that I have to check the DTT threads more regularly.

Kas 2-0 vs. Lopez 2-0, Wassen 2-0 2-0 vs. Butorac 2-0 Wassen 2-1,
Allegro 2-0 vs. Late,

Marach 2-0 vs. Lipsky 2-0 does it mean that if Lipsky wins weg get +2?
Wassen 2-0 2-0 vs. Butorac 2-0 Wassen 2-1 does it mean, when Wassen wins we get +1?

1. question: No, you get +1; if Lipsky wins, the 2-0 is just in case it goes to SR's
2. question: Yes

Yesterday trucul send OOP late and I had to go to school early today and so I just send my picks to him as I looked for the OOP at atptennis.com ;)
I didn't see the match Scherrer/Wawrinka - Allegro/Tecau, but I don't think I should be disqualified, because I forgot this match ;)

I posted "late" in the diffs but this is rather "too early" or "invalid" pick. ;)

I don't think as week this is a cause of disqualification because picks were sent.

I am waiting for OOP of Chennai and Doha for official Thursday OOP (day 1 of 2-day DTT SF) but I can already give a first schedule:

- Chennai: no match will be there.
- Brisbane: Gicquel/Tsonga vs. Parrott/Polasek (actually played the night after but part of Thursday OOP)
- Doha: Nestor/Zimonjic vs. Cerretani/Hanescu and (winner of Lopez/Nadal vs. Kas/Kohlschreiber) vs. Santoro/Youzhny.

Even if these matches are not played on Thursday, they will be part of DTT Thursday OOP (to avoid the split for day 2).
