Good luck, and let’s get those matches played!
Due to the hot conditions, will all players please remember rule 6 – i.e. that playing a championship tie-break in lieu of a deciding set is an option if agreed by all parties before the match starts. As they are plenty of matches to be played, we think this is a good option to keep fatigue down!
Rule 6. All matches will be the best of three tie-break sets (tie-break at 6-6). If the players agree beforehand this can be modified to two tie-break sets and if the scores are 1 set all then decided by a championship tie-break (i.e. played to 10 points). The idea is to reduce the overall burden on players due to the number of matches being played.
