Tennis Tipping Davis Cup

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.


- In case of a tie, a tie-breaker will decide which player wins.

- 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:

Sign Up for Davis Cup has already taken place.

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.


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

Re: TT Davis Cup R16 - World Group I and II

Some additional rules...

Team Changes
Changes to a team will only be allowed on Day 1 if a player doesn't send tips before the start of play and someone else on the team does. If a player sends tips late and a substitute doesn't send tips then only the late picks will count.
Tactical changes to doubles and reverse singles can be made before the start of the day's play by the captain sending a PM to me.

Match Changes
Any matches where the lineups change in the ATP matches will not count in singles. For doubles, players will tip the country rather than the players so will have to use their judgement to determine who is likely to play after the first days' singles results.

Dead Rubbers
Dead rubbers played on the final day will not count for TT purposes.
