Tennis Tipping Davis Cup - Semifinals & Promotion/Relegation Play Offs



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.
New tie-break method: http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...37&postcount=1

- 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:

Captains (the same players who lead teams in previous rounds) pick 2, 3 or 4 players to be in the team and choose using whatever methods you like. Please confirm teams as soon as possible, so that not picked players are able to commit to a challenger in DC SFs week.

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: ?, 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.

PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE

If the board goes down as has happened before, send your picks to [email protected]

A couple of points re: the format of the final:

1. As there is only match you will need to send picks for all possible matches in singles (16 permutations in all) to ensure that in the case of lineup changes everyone has picks for both ties.

2. I think that for the final days' matches that dead rubbers should count otherwise if the 4th or 5th rubbers are dead then it could get farcical. Let me know if you have any objections to this.

:p
