Tennis Tipping #20 - Casablanca


http://www.atptennis.com/en/graphics/tournamentlogos/casablanca_70x105.gif


Welcome to Tennis Tipping Casablanca!

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 (including qualifying matches) = TT Round of 32
Remainder of R32 = TT Round of 16
R16 = TT Quarterfinal
QF = TT Semifinal
SF + F = TT Final

DOUBLES:

R32 = 16 TT Teams
R16 = 8 TT Teams
QF = 4 TT Teams
SF + F = 2 TT Teams

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 5:00PM Sunday in London.
For help with timezones, use this - www.timeanddate.com/worldclock.

Maximum Players for this tournament: 32
Maximum Doubles Teams for this tournament: 16

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.

If you go out the first round you must still send in your tips for the second round as there are a certain number of participants who forget to send in their tips. Only in the second round will the highest scoring losers from the first round be used as lucky losers if any second round player forgets to send their tips to avoid walkovers.


PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE

I hope we will get at least some first round matches in singles. Obviously people like the Spanish tournaments. I had the same problem in Houston, but this time Barcelona has even 56 spots, so I guess we won't even get the 24 players I had in Houston. :o

I myself am playing at Barcelona because I didn't want tp play in the tournament I am managing, so I can't say I blame anyone for choosing that event over Casablanca.

Besides if we only get upto 16 players everyone will play the entire first round instead of just day 1 :D

I'm playing here as there isnt going to be as many entrants, so even though the points are higher in Barcelona, i have more of a chance of picking up points here.

Bit of a cowards way around it, but i seem to do much better in the smaller tournaments (houston final), so i hope i can pick up a similar result here to push me up the rankings

Plus, i have struggled in the european tournaments so far, so i am trying to avoid them at the moment

Yeah. I also signed in here because I need only 4 wins (3 in doubles) to win the title. :p But to be honest, I needed some time to realize that Barcelona has 300 points for the winner. :o

For those players without doubles partners I have taken the liberty of pairing you with another player for the doubles title. You have nothing to lose and even if you go out the first round you will have gained some points and hopefully pushed up your doubles ranking:)

New doubles teams are as follows :

Tiptopdaisy (AUT) / Robrulz5 (AUS)
*julie* (CAN) / Dupuis2006 (CAN)
Julio1974 (IRL) / Frooty_Bazooty (IRL)
NyGel (ARG) / Caralimon (ARG)
Edg (TUR) / Almouchie (LEB)
JBdV (FRA) / Buddy (SIN)

Tiptopdaisy from Austria has been paired with Robrulz5 of Australia.
All new Canadian team of *julie* and Dupuis2006.
All new Irish team of Julio1974 and Frooty_Bazooty.
All new Argentine team of NyGel and Caralimon.
Edg from Turkey has been paired with Almouchie from Lebanon and finally
JBdv from France has been paired with Buddy from Singapore.

True, but if you are level in the second round then we go to a tie-break, then countback from first day. You don't have to send picks for first day but it would be in your interests.

Nobody likes to go out on a countback.

Initially I did select WASKE v MULLER as tiebreak match, but since I have seen the order of play for Tuesday and that match seems to be missing so I don't know whether that is an error or the match may not take place. To be on the safe side I have changed the tiebreak match to BRACCIALI v PATIENCE.

Tuesday OOP - Day 2:

(1) MASSU, Nicolas CHI v BERRER, Michael GER
(8) SIMON, Gilles FRA v HERNYCH, Jan CZE
(WC) TAHIRI, Mehdi MAR v MARACH, Oliver AUT
MAYER, Florian GER v (WC) OUAHAB, Lamine ALG
BEHREND, Tomas GER v (3) ROCHUS, Christophe BEL
(7) BRACCIALI, Daniele ITA v PATIENCE, Olivier FRA (Tie-break for doubles also)
WASKE, Alexander GER v MULLER, Gilles LUX
GICQUEL, Marc v TIPSAREVIC, Janko SCG
PERIC, Tomislav v (2) HORNA, Luis PER

All players to send in their picks because everyone is still in the doubles including those who didn't send any picks today. Plus some first round losers may end up as Lucky losers in the second round.

Good Luck to all. :)

Got a nice first round win in the singles, and now i have a rematch of the Houston final, so i think its time to get my revenge for that loss

Have a nice lead in the doubles match as well, and hopefully will be able to hold onto it and move through to the next round

Just a 1 game down in the singles at the moment, but i do have a pretty decent score in the tie break if it comes down to that. I think i need Marach to hold on in his match at the moment though.

Update with 2 matches to go in second round.

04:06 | (1) JMG (GER) v Bubba08 (MLT)
05:03 | Melvins (POR) v (8) Nimrodg (ISR)
04:04 | (5) Sylvester (POR) v Frooty_Bazooty (IRL)
04:05 | Forever-Delayed (ENG) v (4) Shotgun Blues (BRA)
05:06 | (3) Coreyschucky (USA) v NyGel (ARG)
04:05 | Bavaria100 (GER) v (LE) SaFed2005 (NEP)
04:05 | (LL) JBdV (FRA) v Julio1974 (IRL)
05:05 | its.like.that (RUS) v (2) Robrulz5 (AUS)

The players highlighted in blue have progressed into the next round no matter what the result in the last two matches.

Everyone has picked MASSU over Berrer so that match cancels itself out. As for the 4 undecided ties everything rests on WASKE v MULLER who are playing on Wednesday. Most of you have sent in your pick for WASKE v MULLER. You will all be allowed to re submit this pick again should you feel the need before start of play tomorrow as there will be alot on stake in this match. Or maybe you already have picked the winner :)

Good luck everyone. :wavey:

Wednesday OOP - Day 3:

First Round :
WASKE, Alexander GER v MULLER, Gilles LUX
Second Round :

PHAU, Bjorn GER v SAOUDI, Slimane (ALG)
VANEK, Jiri CZE v (6) MELZER, Jurgen AUT

(Tie-break will be on Thursday for Second Round)

Still one match to go in the second round of TT so don't forget to resend your WASKE v MULLER pick if you so wish.

Plus don't forget to send your 4 2nd Round Casablanca picks if your still in the doubles and/or 2nd round TT singles.

Cheers :wavey:

Friday's Play - Day 5:

(1) MASSU, Nicolas CHI v MAHUT, Nicolas FRA v
PHAU, Bjorn GER v VANEK, Jiri CZE
(8) SIMON, Gilles FRA v (3) ROCHUS, Christophe BEL
(7) BRACCIALI, Daniele ITA v (2) HORNA, Luis PER (Tiebreak match)

Extremely close match between Frooty_Bazooty and Shotgun Blues. Tied the match 5:5, tied the first TB 7:7, tied the first countback 6:6, tied the second countback 3:3, tied the second tiebreak 0:0 and then Shotgun Blues finally prevailling in the third tiebreak 17:0 all because Frooty_Bazooty never sent in his first day tiebreak score. How he must be kicking himself right now...... Commiserations to Frooty. :hug:

In the doubles JBdV will need to track down his partner Buddy for the semifinal otherwise he will be fending off his opponents all by himself.
