Tennis Tipping #33 ~ Newport

http://www.atptennis.com/en/graphics/tournamentlogos/315_2004.gif

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.

The Number Of Participants Per Round:

SINGLES:

Newport Day 1 - TT R32
Newport Day 2 - TT R16
Newport Days 3 and 4 - TT QF
Newport QF - TT SF
Newport SF + F - TT Final

DOUBLES:

Newport Days 1 and 2 - TT R16
Newport Days 3 and 4 - TT QF
Newport QF - TT SF
Newport SF + F - TT Final

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 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.
You must commit before the designated time. For this tournament, that time is Saturday 8 June, 10:00 AM in Lisbon (possible change).
For help with timezones, use this - www.timeanddate.com/worldclock .

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

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 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: [Newport, 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 in the first round, you should still send in your tips for the second round as there are usually 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 in their tips to avoid walkovers.

PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE

If the board goes down as has happened before, send your picks to sylvgb@clix.pt (xolin@sapo.pt)

Bad luck :p

Doubles rules!!!

GlennMirnyi/Berdych Fan the new doubles specialists... hehehehehe

Portugal played well and left everything in the field, but didn't deserve the victory. I'm not happy to say that, as I was supporting heavily our motherland and Felipão, who is from the same state (or province) as Berdych Fan and myself. France played better. Great performance from the defense and Henry played an incredible match even alone vs 3 to 4 defensors.
I think you portuguese should be very proud that your team finished with honor. You guys fought till the end and tried 'till the last second. If Felipão stays, I guess his work will flourish an even better team for the next world cup. Maniche was a revelation for me. Great player.

Makes no difference if you just enter him into the bye with the lowest seed.

Same as Pigpen Stinks. Place against lowest seeded player with a bye. No need for alternatives when you have bye positions in the draw. :)

Allowing someone into a bye position does not make any difference in the game. In an ideal world no player should have a bye in an IS tournament but as we cannot always fill all 32 positions tops seeds receive a bye.

In future draws should only be made on Friday is qualification matches are to be played on Saturday and Sunday. The earliest Newport and Bastad should have been drawn was when 32 players had entered or Sunday before tournament. Don't forget TT is only 6 months old so we are all still learning from our mistakes. It will take time to make everything run to routine.

We are still developing TT to new players and this weekend we could have turned away 3 new players. Had we done that would they want to come back? Would other new players bother try to join TT tournaments later in the week?

In the ATP this would not happen adding a player to the draw. I know we are trying to follow ATP as close as possible. BUT they have 32 players regardless everytime for each event where as we don't always. If a late entry takes a bye position the only difference it makes is it bring the opponent onto a level playing field with the rest of the players in the draw. As Balloon has stated before receiving a bye is not a privelage, it is a circumstance because we cannot attract a full draw.

keqtqiadv
07-09-2006, 12:21 AM
I agree with you in the new players point. But I'm still against this late replacement in the draw.
A seed was firstly given a bye. When we have a late entry and this spot is filled, he doesn't have choice but facing this late player. The draw needs to be fair, so his opponent should be one of all non seeded, but it's not what happens. If the late player were A_Skywalker or the best score of the round, for example, would a seed like it? Bye is not a privelage, but it can't become a disadvantage.

Sorry, maybe I'm being excessively rigorous. Like you said, we're still developing TT :p

Nah, you're no being rigorous, this is just a healthy discussion. I understand your point about a late entry being a high ranked player. But this is where TT differs from the ATP. The nature of TT has proven that a Non Ranked player has every same chance as a high ranked player. There are no Federers or Nadals in TT. That is why in my opinion it does not really matter who you play as long as you play someone. I know I would rather play a higher ranked player rather than a newcomer as this way I kind of know what to expect.

Pigpen Stinks

Just noticed that you're my opponent in the next round. I think you have a good chance to win this one because I'm cursed when it comes to quarterfinals. I've already played five of them and lost them all (the last three on tiebreak). Anyways, good luck to you!

I've actually been playing quite well this week, which is a bit of surprise for me, and this is the first time i have won 2 matches in a row since Munich. I do seem to do well in small, American tournaments, with a weak entry list, so hopefully i can win another match here, although it will be a tough one

Well they definately get a lucky loser spot, but for the other one i wouldnt be sure. You could either allow the highest scoring team you lost from the R1 to take the spot, and just play with 1 player for the round, or give the highest score team out of the 2 who had players missing the spot in the quarters.

(would prefer the team who lost to get a lucky loser spot, as it might be me...)

Either way, with all the R2 matches being played today, and most of them having obvious picks, i cant see how the 1 can beat the 2

Well they definately get a lucky loser spot, but for the other one i wouldnt be sure. You could either allow the highest scoring team you lost from the R1 to take the spot, and just play with 1 player for the round, or give the highest score team out of the 2 who had players missing the spot in the quarters.

(would prefer the team who lost to get a lucky loser spot, as it might be me...)

Either way, with all the R2 matches being played today, and most of them having obvious picks, i cant see how the 1 can beat the 2

And the two teams would face each other, so maybe the best thing is to disqualify both teams and the lucky loser team gets a bye... :unsure:

It's probably best to see what some of the other managers say about this. My view would be slightly skewed, simply as i know that i did have the highest score for a lucky loser, so would want the spot in the quarters.

I think we may have come to a situation here that we have never come across before

GlennMirnyi and VamosIsrael did not send picks... :sad:

So two teams should be replaced by lucky losers.

But only mat87to/Faik Kheft can be lucky losers.

Murilo, Labamba: What should I do?

whoever (from GlennMirnyi and VamosIsrael) sends the remaining picks faster, will stay in play, and the other team (slower) will be replaced by lucky losers (mat87to/Faik Kheft)

:wavey:

And if neither send the picks?

I would keep GlennMirnyi (BRA)/BerdychFan (BRA) in play with just one player (due to a higher score than the other team with just one player...) :shrug:
