Default DTT Week 17: Cincinnati - congrats quiron and Duncan/JM-Del-Potro !!!

Doubles Tennis Tipping #17
CINCINNATI MASTERS SERIES





What is Doubles Tennis Tipping?

In the game, participants pick the winners of all doubles 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/showthread.php?t=114109

- 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 Doubles Tennis Tipping, these matches will be cancelled.


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: [DTT: ?, 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. 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 trucul2008@hotmail.fr

DTT Newsletter:




Hello everybody,

here is the DTT Weekly Newsletter ! First of all, we will come back on the DTT Tournament of Toronto, then we will have a preview of DTT Tournament at Cincinnati and finally a few news around DTT.

First of all, DTT Toronto, which was the 6th Masters Series event in the history of DTT saw a 6th different winner in DTT Singles: marr from Uruguay, known so far as number 1 in DTT Doubles Rankings, made a perfect week by managing at the same time the tournament and winning it. Maybe, this could give some ideas for new managers in DTT Game. Only 1 seed was beaten (MuriloBrasil the Wimbledon winner) but the Final against balloon was a great final, the winner being known only after the super TB of the Final. balloon also had a great week, both in Singles and Doubles but unfortunately, did not manage to win a title. marr is now climbing from DTT #16 to DTT #8 in Singles, being virtually qualified from DTT Masters Finals in Shangai (which is no more the case for Boarder35m). balloon moves from rank #30 to rank #21. Overall, this DTT Singles tournament was full of surprise with no seeded players in Semi-Finals. Only Drikke and diego36arg managed to reach QuarterFinals.

In DTT Doubles, JeffCandoi/MuriloBrasil, the number 1 Team in the Race, win a third Masters Series title after Monte-Carlo and Rome, increasing their lead over KalleOnAir/marr team. By reaching the final, balloon/vamos israel are now in the TOP 4 team in the race. Note that the TOP 8 teams in the race seem to have a huge advance over the other teams but everything is still possible since Nadie/Bjorki team is not anymore an active DTT Team. Some very promising teams were seen that week such as Lucian_Iasi/georg team.

Now, players are heading to Toronto for a new Masters Series. The major event is the comeback after rest of DTT Singles Number 1, Bjorki, who won Roland Garros and was runner-up at Wimbledon. All the best players are there and the first round draw gave interesting matches: marr vs. KalleOnAir, JeffCandoi vs. Tzar, diego36arg vs. balloon seem to be the most interesting first round matches.

In Doubles, balloon/vamos israel vs. Boarder35m/Kielian will be match of the day ...

It is always difficult to pick a winner for a tournament but, as Drikke, JeffCandoi and Lucho_Coria are the only top 10 members without any DTT Title, they need to be carefully followed during the week. In Doubles, KalleOnAir/marr, JeffCandoi/MuriloBrasil and balloon/vamos israel will be the top favourites.

Finally, here are some news about DTT: This week is the 15th tournament of DTT. As we want to follow the rules used in real Doubles for rankings, this means that Rankings will be based on best 14 tournament results. So, players who had played all tournaments will not be counted with their worst result for next ranking.
Note also that Olympic Games are coming closer and closer. If you have not yet committed in Singles and in Doubles with a partner of same nationality as you, you can still do it.

Plenty of surprises will come in DTT Forum directory in the coming days:

http://www.menstennisforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=973

Especially, stats (I am currently compiling them) and a thread dedicated to real Doubles players.
We will also experiment Quizz and vCash race this week at Cincinnati. Let us see afterwards if we can have a thread dedicated to quizz ...

That is all for this week. Enjoy DTT Game.

vCash race:

This week at Cincinnati, you will be able to win a lot of vCash in parallel with the official DTT Tournament. I plan to run what is called a vCash race where you can get some points based on best picks of the day (3 pts for the best pick, 1 pt for the second). Bonus points will be granted based on some quizz questions I will put in the thread every night.

As today is warm-up day and there are already 2 matches scheduled (which will not count for DTT Tournament), I propose that you send me (trucul) through PM your picks (SR PTS) for the following matches to win some points for the vCash race:


Feliciano LOPEZ/Fernando VERDASCO (ESP/ESP) vs. Tomas BERDYCH/Radek STEPANEK (CZE/CZE)SR1 PTS1
Jesse LEVINE/Donald YOUNG (USA/USA) vs. Robert LINDSTEDT/Jarkko NIEMINEN (SWE/FIN) SR2 PTS2

Deadline is Sunday, 18:00 CET (when matches start).

The rules about how many vCash will be granted depends on the number of participants, so do not hesitate to play. The more points you win, the more vCash you will get at the end of the week.

===========
Stage 1:

Berdych/Stepanek def. Lopez/Verdasco 7/5 7/6
Lindstedt/Nieminen def. Levine/Young 7/6 7/6

Nobody has 2 correct picks.

So, ranking for this first edition of vCash is:

Rank / Player / Nb Picks / SR count / SRid
1. Drikke 1-1-SR1
2. vamos israel 1-1-SR2 (vamos israel beats Balloon and MZverev-Fan on PTS)
3. Balloon 1-1-SR2 (Balloon beats MZverev-Fan on DTT ranking (21 vs. 22)).
4. MZverev-Fan 1-1-SR2
5. JM-Del-Potro 1-0-SR1

And vCash Ranking is after 1 event:

1. Drikke (BEL) 3 pts
2. vamos israel (ISR) 1 pt



============================
So, ranking after 2 events of vCash race is following one:

1. Drikke 3 pts
2. vamos israel 1 pt
2. juakos17 1 pt

Tomorrow, there will be 3 events:

- event #3: best pick of the day (with 3 points for the best pick and 1 for the second best pick).
- event #4: best quality pick of the day (with 3 points for the best pick and 1 for the second best). Quality pick is based on stats of picks at SR level. If tied, then will go to second quality pick and so on. If still tied, will be based on TT standard criteria.
- event #5: quizz at 23:15 CET ... A little bit more complicated than today. 2 pts for the winner tomorrow.
=================================

vCash Ranking updated after day 2:

1. marr 6 Pts
2. Drikke and Dupuis2006 5 Pts
4. MZverev-Fan 2 Pts
5. vamos israel, juakos17 and JM-Del-Potro 1 Pt.

Tomorrow, vCash events will be following ones:

- best pick of the day (3 pts for winner, 1 pt for second)
- best quality pick of the day (3 pts for winner, 1 pt for second)
- yellow jersey (leader in overall picks since begin of tournament) (3 pts for leader, 1 pt for second).
- quizz at 23:15 CET (3 pts for winner)
- bonus perfect score for any correct score tomorrow (5 pts for 1 correct score, 5*5=25 points for 2 correct scores, 5*5*5=125 points for 3 correct scores, ...).

================
Update after Tuesday's matches:

Update after this event:

1. marr 9 Pts
2. trucul 6 Pts
3. Drikke and Dupuis2006 5 Pts
5. JM-Del-Potro 4 Pts
6. MZverev-Fan and Bjorki 2 Pts
7. vamos israel, juakos17 and balloon 1 Pt

Wednesday vCash events:

- best pick of the day (3 pts for winner, 1 pt for second)
- best quality pick of the day (3 pts for winner, 1 pt for second)
- yellow jersey (leader in overall picks since begin of tournament) (3 pts for leader, 1 pt for second).
- quizz at 23:15 CET (3 pts for winner)
- bonus perfect score for any correct score tomorrow (5 pts for 1 correct score, 5*5=25 points for 2 correct scores, 5*5*5=125 points for 3 correct scores, ...).
