Tennis Tipping #15 - NASDAQ-100 Open, Miami



Welcome to Tennis Tipping

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 participants 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.


The Number Of Participants Per Round:

SINGLES:

Day 1 - 96 Players
Day 2 - 64 Players
R64 - 32 Players
R32 - 16 Players
R16 - 8 Players
QF - 4 Players
SF + F - 2 Players

DOUBLES:

R64 - 32 Teams
R32 - 16 Teams
R16 - 8 Teams
QF - 4 Teams
SF + F - 2 Teams

Note: Format of the tournament is subject to change according to the number of people who sign up. Please check again closer to the start of the tournament.



Note:

- In case of a tie, a tie-breaker match for which the score (as opposed to just the winner) is given, will decide who moves on to the next round. For all participants, this tie-breaker match is the same and will be assigned beforehand.
- In case a player (i.e. the actual ATP Player) retires in a match, this match will be cancelled and not taken into consideration when calculating the number of correct picks. If players are replaced by a lucky loser after the start of Tennis Tipping, these matches will also be cancelled.

How to Sign-Up:

Just post here that you would like to play. :)
You can only play one tournament per week.
You must commit before the designated time. For this tournament, that time is 10:00AM GMT Tuesday, 21st March
For help with timezones, use this - www.timeanddate.com/worldclock (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock).

Maximum Players for this tournament: 96
Maximum Doubles Teams for this tournament: 32

Currently, entries into a tournament are based on a first-come, first-in basis.

How to send in picks:

Picks can be sent in as soon as all qualifiers have been placed. 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: [tournament, day #]. Picks can be sent in anytime until the beginning of play each day. Because of the chances of 1st and 2nd Round matches being played on the same day, you should send in tips each day, even if you're not sure if you've made the next round. 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.

Good Luck! :wavey:

Robrulz5 has just won the Indian Wells Title. Here is an example of a player who has lost every round he has ever played but came through brilliantly to be the Champion here.

Just goes to show anyone can win at Tennis Tipping. Robrulz5 would have been the unlikeliest candidate having lost every round played before Indian Wells. WE have 65 entrents for Miami. So still 31 places available in the first round.
Come on you newcomers, Give TENNIS TIPPING a try! You have every chance of winning as proved this week. Lets make TENNIS TIPPING the biggest and most exciting game on MTF.

Entry deadline is 10AM GMT tomorrow.

Taz Warrior
03-20-2006, 01:37 PM
belco - Basically you predict the winners of ATP matches in a knockout format against your opponent. I will post the draw on the first page of this thread tomorrow. Matches are predicted on a round-by-round basis except for the first round which is split by day, until we get to the final 2 competitors who predict both the semi finals and final. For each round there is a tiebreak match for which you predict the score of the match - this is used when there is a tie between 2 players.


There is also a Tennis Tipping forum under the Games section as well with rankings, chat, suggestions, etc or you can look at the thread for last weeks tournament in Indian Wells to get an idea of how it works :)

No. Each round is seperate from the first.

Let's say you and me get put in a draw against eachother and you predict 25 matches correctly and I predict 22 matches correctly. You move on to the next round, and it is all over for me.

In each round it doesn't matter who you picked before, you just try to predict the correct winner of as many matches as possible to try to beat the MTF player you are matched up against.

belco
03-20-2006, 01:52 PM
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
ok
:D

so what happens in the final if we both make it and we pick the right winner?

it gets counted to how many wins overall ?

belco
03-20-2006, 01:55 PM

savesthedizzle
03-20-2006, 01:59 PM

Depending on how far you get there are rankings, and the rankings determine seedings and I assume it is done much like real draws are made. :shrug: You're asking a lot of questions I can't answer now since I don't manage this game. :lol:

In each round there is a match highlighted in red that is a tiebreaker match that in addition to predicting the winner you need to predict the score of. It is scored the same way as Predict-the-Score and whoever does that more accurately will win. If that is tied, then it goes into countbacks of the previous rounds results.

03-20-2006, 02:02 PM

No, no quallies :p

There are as many people in a draw as there are in the real draw... Miami probably won't fill up because not enough people play, but in the smaller tournaments you need to commit fast to the tournament you want. :p

The schedule, according to the website, is that the first 2 days will be first round matches only and the 2nd round will start on Friday.

Therefore the schedule for TT will be as follows, with only the first round being split in half:

Day 1 - R96 (R68)
Day 2 - R64
R64 - R32
R32 - R16
R16 - QF
QF - SF
SF + F - F

The doubles will start from ATP 2nd Round.

Draws will be published soon.

Draws are now out. There are 68 singles competitors and 26 doubles teams which again means 4 first round singles matches. The top 6 doubles teams have a bye.

As discussed in the Managers Thread, the following rules now apply for this and future tournaments:

1. Lucky Losers - These will only be used for the first round. If a player does not send in their picks in the second round they will be replaced by the highest scoring loser in the first round as long as they've sent in their picks. If a player fails to send in their picks after the second round his/her opponent will receive a walkover.

2. Even scores - matches that are tied on points will be determined by tiebreaker first as a used always. If the tiebreak score is equal I will use countback (score in previous round), if still equal, the countback in the round before that, etc back to the first round before using tiebreaks in previous rounds.. If all things are equal, then ranking will be used as the last resort to determine the winner.

Therefore, even if you are not involved in the first round, I suggest you still send in your tips for Day 1 incase countback is required. If you're drawn to play me in singles or doubles then you should send your tips to $@M and I will do the same.

Any questions, let me know.

Good luck to everyone and welcome to the game for all the new competitors

You have an advantage. I'm not sending first day picks for countback. I don't know which matches are being played tomorrow, and I don't want to pick all fisrt round today, because of qualifiers. I did it last week, and I had a great tournament, reaching QFs. I could send the picks, but I feel it won't be necessary.

Tennis Tipping Miami Preview

Another strong field heads to Miami with 9 of the top 10 on the entry list with only #2 <Lt*Alonso*CL>. Once again, the top seed is greatkingrat who wll be hoping to put a disappointing Indian Wells behind him as he opens against bavaria100. The German has been cursing his luck after another tough draw following his opening match against JMG in Indian Wells and this will surely be one of the matches of the round. #2 seed is the inform Labamba who just fell short of reaching the #2 ranking after falling in the semi finals of IW and will be looking to cement his fast growing reputation with another strong performance here. There's a potential banana skin though in the first round when the Finn will face an unranked opponent in either Siders or mesimarja. Fellow Finn el guero is the #3 seed who will be looking to bounce back after an earlier than expected exit from IW when he opens against Iza who clocked one of his best results in singles last week. Bolar Bolabi is the #4 seed and is another of those players hoping for a better performance in Miami before we head onto the clay court season. The Australian started off the year extremely well but has played poorly recently and will be looking to prove that his Aus Open semi final was no fluke. He opens against Melvins in what could prove a tricky match.

JMG is slowly building up a reputation as one of the most consistent performers in the game. The German #5 seed very rarely loses early in the competition which could prove bad news for second round opponent skykisser. Brilliant one week, poor the next - that's the way to describe #6 seed _pyromatic and the American will be hoping that the trend continues for this week at least. After He opens against Julio1974 who jained his first TT win in Indian Wells after 3 previous first round exits. Another man who gained his first TT win last week after 3 first round defeats was robrulz5. The #7 seed came to life last week as he took the title with some crushing victories including two highly impressive wins in the semi finals and final against Labamba and scythe19pro where he forced his opponents to take risks and play out of their comfort zone after taking early leads. His first opponent linus is a solid competitor though who took out Bolar Bolabi in the 2nd round at IW, so hopefully the Australian will have stopped partying as he will need to be at his best straight away. Runner up at Indian Wells scythe19pro rounds out our top 8 seeds. One of 5 Romanians in the draw he meets one of the others in the form of Sandra in his first match where he will hope to consolidate his top ten ranking and prove to everyone that he deserves to be there.

As seen in Indian Wells though everyone has a chance to win with the right picks, the ability to take a chance now and then and sometimes a little bit of luck.

Good luck to everyone - here's to a good competition.

Oh dear day 1 and it's already gone wrong :rolleyes: :o :mad:

Stewards enquiry needed - the Gimelstob v Goldstein should not have counted. I admit I was in a rush and didn't realise that Gimelstob had retired, therefore the result is overturned and viorela_pax wins 11:10.

Sorry belco for giving you false hope, but you are second in line to be a LL and with such a big draw size I'm sure someone will forget to send their picks and you'll stand a chance of going through.
