Tennis Tipping Davis Cup 2012 - November 2012 - WG I Final




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 which player wins.

- 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:

Sign Up for Davis Cup has already taken place. Weekend ties:

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 Davis Cup, 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 Davis Cup doubles, you tip the Davis Cup doubles rubbers. No changes can be made after the play has started.

Additional Rules

1. Players will be allowed to make tactical changes to the doubles and reverse singles up until the start of play for that day - the captains must pm me to inform me before the days' play starts though.

2. Non playing members of each team may send me in their tips each day as backup incase one of the other members of their team doesn't send in their tips.

3. Any matches where the lineups change in the ATP matches will not count in singles. For doubles, players will tip the country rather than the players so will have to use their judgement to determine who is likely to play after the first days' singles results.

4. Dead rubbers played on the final day will not count for TT purposes.

PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE

If the board goes down as has happened before, send your picks to murilo_esseka@hotmail.com.

Quote:

Tennis Tipping Davis Cup Nations Ranking

The TT Davis Cup Nations Ranking is used as the sole criteria for seeding at all levels of the Davis Cup competition. However seeds one and two in the World Group shall be the Finalists of the year immediately prior to the year for which the seeds are being selected, and seeds 3-8 shall be in accordance with the latest Ranking. The ITF Davis Cup Nations Ranking is published following every World Group round. All nations are ranked.

The ITF Davis Cup Nations Ranking measures the success of all Nations participating in the Competition over a 'rolling' four year period with recent performance weighted more heavily.

After each round the ranking period adjusts and any results outside the adjusted four year period drop off. At the same time points from the same round for the three previous years are reduced as per the points table below. Therefore, 100 points would become 75, then 50, then 25 over the four years.

The points stated are awarded to the winning team in that round. (A nation losing in the World Group first round, for example, earns 0 points for that tie.) In addition, any Nation that defeats a higher-ranked Nation receives bonus points according to its opponent's ranking as detailed in the table below.

Deadlines

Friday 2nd November 6 PM CET - Team nominations.

Wednesday 14th November 6 PM CET - Team line ups.
Quote:

Then, the team captains need to confirm their line ups to me by 4th April, i.e. who is playing singles and doubles. This only applies to teams with 3 or 4 players as teams with only 2 will automatically play singles and doubles.

*Note: If a live rubber is played on Sunday, dead rubbers played on the final day will not count for TT purposes. If the tie is decided on Saturday, both dead rubbers will count for TT.

Re: Tennis Tipping Davis Cup 2012 - November 2012 - WG I Final
 
I'm very honoured to send Србија team for that final as Andreas' substitute.

I've decided to ask Igorche to join the squad with his brand new energy in order to compete with the huge nation we are facing now.

I'm very happy to tell he accepted.

So it will be a huge celebration as always when serbian gathered from all over the world with truba, cocek and a lot of smiling faces and shljivovitza.

Our team will represent fairly our nation with 50% people or more living outside mother country Srbija !!!!


SQUAD MEMBERS :

Andreas
Andrijagajic
Igorche
Crvena Zvezda (c)


:cheerleader: Srecno Србија !!! :cheerleader:
