TENNIS TIPPING #1: MELBOURNE

http://www.atptennis.com/en/graphics/ao140.jpg

Welcome to Tennis Tipping. In this game, players pick winners out of every match of every round. In each round, you will be matched up against an opponent in a knockout format, with the person with the most correct picks progressing to the next round.

eg. Round 1- Player A def Player B, Player C def Player D
Round 2- Player A v Player C

The Semi's and Final will be combined into one round, so therefore the format will be:

Round 1 (Unlimited) - Round 1 (64 Matches)
Round 2 (32 Players) - Round 2 (32 Matches)
Round 3 (16 Players) - Round 3 (16 Matches)
Quarter Finals (8 Players) - Round 4 (8 Matches)
Semi Finals (4 Players) - Quarter Finals (4 Matches)
Final (2 Players) - Semi Finals & Final (3 Matches)

Here is the official thread for this tournament. (http://menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=65327)

I've decided there will be no limit on players in any tourny. If the amount of players exceeds the amount of spots, there may be some matches of three. That way, more people can play :)

In the event of a tie, the player with the more picks right in the previous round will progress. For the first round, there will be 5 tie-breaker matches, with the player with the more right progressing.

RANKING POINTS:

W....1000
R/U..700
SF...450
QF...250
R3...150
R2...75
R1...35

ATP MASTER RACE POINTS:

W....200
R/U..140
SF...90
QF...50
R3...30
R2...15
R1...7

To play, reply below. You may only enter one tournament per week. Please ask if you don't understand this explanation. :)

You have until 2:00 PM Sunday GMT to sign-up.

P.S. Im sorry there was no games last week, i became unexpectedly busy. :( Glad to see so much interest in the game. :)

There is a flaw in your system, because there is also a fourth round between the third round and quarter finals.

Main Draw is out!

You can PM your votes into me whenever you want, but the draw wont be out until the time allowed to commit to the tourny is up, in another 22 hours. Good Luck! :)

This should be a good game. Looking forward to it.

Question:

In the freak occurance that we choose the same amount of wins as our opponent including all the tiebreakers, what happens?

DeccyB123
01-14-2006, 12:35 PM
Lets hope it doesnt come to that...

With 64 games, it's highly unlikely there'll even be a draw. In future, it'll be the higher ranked participant. From the second round onwards, it'll be the player with the more points the previous round.
