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.

Note:

- In case of a tie, a tie-breaker will decide who moves on to the next round.
New tie-break method: http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=4489037&postcount=1

- 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. Entries will be based on ranking. Everyone can commit. :D

Please read this post for more information

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: Dubai, 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. For doubles, you still tip the ATP singles matches, not the doubles! 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 fclabamba@hotmail.com

Melvins never played doubles without me in ATP tournaments. I guess he did it in one or two challangers.

I played with Bjorki in a challanger, with Alansk in the US Open and Smasher in Rotterdam this week. I think I played with someone else in a tournament last year, but I can't remember.

guys, you still need to confirm that you're playing together :)

the deadline for entries is tomorrow at 6 pm CET :wavey:

Labamba
02-23-2007, 12:04 AM
Good news, yemok was kind enough to volunteer to be my assistant manager in this tournament :cool: He's the man you should send your picks if you happen to face me in either singles or doubles :p

The other good news for the tournament director is that the entry lists are top class :yeah: In the singles we have 13 players out of the current Top 20 here. The doubles list is even better, all the currently active Top 10 players are here and 15 out of Top 20 :worship:

This means that the qualifying tournament, which begins on Saturday, will also be very competitive. Here's the current singles qualifying entry list:

SINGLES QD ENTRY LIST (rankings from Feb 12)

1. Pixie (FRA) 54
2. PaulHopkins (GBR) 59
3. Nimrodg (ISR) 62
4. Blaze-2004 (USA) 71
5. Dupuis2006 (CAN) 80
6. njnetswill (USA) 112
7. tal20 (ISR) 115
8. mikko (MAC) 124
9. Buddy (SIN) 132
10. Homo_Esperanto (GER) 137
11. Hotzenplotz (GER) 138
12. yarkko (MAC) 139
13. nando_lasheras (BRA) 147
14. sharas36 (ISR) 225
15. Carito_90 (ARG) 232
16. theduckswillrise (USA) 252

alt1 grenberg (FIN) 254
alt2 bogo (ISR) NR
alt3 angela (COL) NR

5 players from the Top 100 will take part in the qualifying, which means the seasoned veterans (like Nimrodg and Pixie) will have to take on some of the hottest prospects (like Hotzenplotz and Homo_Esperanto) in the game. Only four will make it through to the main draw.

The doubles qualifying entry list is also full of well-known names:


DOUBLES QD ENTRY LIST (rankings from Feb 12)

1. keqtqiadv/nando_lasheras (BRA)/(BRA) 24+104=128
2. Marksman/tal20 (GBR)/(ISR) 81+63=144
3. Dupuis2006/east_players (CAN)/(HUN) 68+89=157
4. rob88hock/theduckswillrise (GBR)/(USA) 87+130=217
5. PaulHopkins/Carito_90 (GBR)/(ARG) 93+170=263
6. mikko/yarkko (MAC)/(MAC) 134+131=265
7. Hotzenplotz/Homo_Esperanto (GER)/(GER) 175+139=314
8. grenberg/Buddy (FIN)/(SIN) NR+110=NR

alt1 sharas36/bogo (ISR)/(ISR) 240+NR=NR


All the eyes will be on the star player/manager keqtqiadv, who has to go through the qualies for the first time in his career. That tells something about the quality of this field :eek:

Some late entries might still cause changes in the lists, but they are very unlikely at this point. The entry deadline is at 6 pm CET, and right after that the qualifying draws are made. The main draws for singles and doubles will be done on Saturday :)

This tournament will also have some TT games, which everybody can take part in if they like. More about the games later on. I hope all the players will enjoy this tournament, which promises to be a great one! :rocker2:

singles - you need Troicki

doubles - you need the big man from Morocco

:wavey:

Thanks :)

Viktor looking good so far though I shouldn't speak too soon ;)

Quite surprised Younes is the only difference in doubles, we were so convinced some other match would decide our doubles match :eek:

Disappointing number of no-shows here in the qualies, makes this draw for us feel even tougher compared to what could've happened :eek:

the 'tip' was allright, I think the youngster just couldn't get used to the special climate in Dubai during the short match :rolleyes:
looking forward to see another hot tips (especially to the Federer's matches)

I just saw yarkko&mikko playin' here in the qualies and that reminds me of the victory of Mikko Hirvonen in Rally Norway last week :rocker2:
great guy, I'll support him in 2007! (ignore this if you are not following WRC / motorsports :Q)
