Tennis Tipping – Shanghai


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:
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.
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: Shanghai, 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 [email protected]

How to send picks

Welcome new players! I have borrowed this post from my first TT manager - justafanyyc

There is a schedule(OOP) that comes out each day and you play against one opponent in a knockout draw.

So for example here's an OOP

Monday OOP
(fake names to protect the innocent)

Alex BLOWMEARSEOFF[RUS] vs Buck NUMBNUTS[USA] PTS1
Jos BLEAU[FRA] vs Buster HYMAN[USA] SR2
Bybeiev RHIBODIE[KAZ] vs Som Yung GAI[CHN] SR3
Heywood JABLOMEY[USA] vs Al KAHOLIC[USA] SR4
Chee Tin HO[HGK] vs Pheela MABOOB[IND] SR5
IP FREELY[USA] vs Master BATES[GBR] SR6
Ho Lee FUK [KOR] vs Haid D'SALAAMI [IRQ] SR7
Izheet M'DRURZ [LEB] vs Wyatt Wooden WORKMAN [USA] SR8

The PTS at the end means you have to predict the correct score (for tiebreaking purposes)
The SR at the end means you have to predict just the set score

So you would send to the manager your picks in this format:
(use last names only)

BLOWMEARSEOFF 64 63
BLEAU 20
GAI 21
KAHOLIC 21
MABOOB 20
FREELY 20
D'SALAAMI 20
M'DRURZ 20


Whoever gets the most correct between you and your opponent wins!
It's that simple!
