FORMAT
This weekend's dual matches will be a contest for the best-of-seven team points. The dual will begin with three doubles matches consisting of a six-game set, with a tiebreaker played at 6-6. The team that wins two of these three matches will enter the singles competition with one of seven points. Once the doubles point has been clinched, the remaining doubles match shall not be completed. After a brief intermission, six singles matches will be played. Each singles match will be the best-of-three sets and worth one point towards the team competition. If the first two sets are split, a 10-point tiebreaker will be used in lieu of a full third set to determine the winner. The overall dual match will be decided when one team secures four total points. Singles matches in progress when the dual match is clinched will be played to completion. This format of college tennis will be in effect until through the National Indoor Championships (Feb. 7-10).
