Tennis Tipping #1B - ATP CUP BRISBANE - Manager a1canada

See the source image


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.
  • 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:


This event is by invitation ONLY

Please read this post for more information


Tennis Tipping Rules & Questions - MensTennisForums.com

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 (Conversation) , so that your opponent does not know your picks. 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

Tennis Tipping returns!
It appears likely Greece will be a walkover for all 3 other countries in GROUP F, although @Ertl93 can still earn individual points for all 3 of his RR MATCHES. Good luck to ALL!

Sorry there is no give on the posted deadline, the one golden rule of this game as much as I would have loved another player.

There is still 2 more rounds, and never out, Himalaya won WTF after 0-2 start in this same format
