Tennis Tipping – #46a - ATP Finals


What is Tennis Tipping?
In the game, participants pick the winners of all main draw matches (and sometimes some qualifying 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 exclusive for those in the Top 8 of the TT Singles and Doubles Races. You can view the current race standings
here. I will notify you through PM and a mention if you are eligible to compete here. If you get notified, just post here that you would like to play. If you elect to play here, you may not play anywhere else this week. Entries will be based on your TT RACE ranking, not your TT Ranking. 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 groups 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: ATP Finals, ***day. Picks can be sent in anytime until the official beginning of play each day, or in special cases until the deadline set by the manager in order to benefit the majority. 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

In please :)

I still remember last year, my beginning in TT, when I joked with @NDee whether we would get 7 or 8 points for advancing a round in the Challengers 😄
Also congratulations to @156mphserve ! Fantastic season for you, with great picks at times.
Congratulations to all the other qualifiers too. Special season and situation this year.

Myself I am very tired, hoping finding last energy for London ;)
Unfortunately, except AO and the 2nd week of RG, I couldn't watch any Tennis at all this Year, except a lil bit at the weekends. Job has been since March this year, super stressful, unfortunately. Really think about taking a break and apply for PR.

At this point, many, many thanks again to @BMT360 @a1canada and all the other Managers, you are doing a great job - very appreciated thank you!!
