- Procedure for Tie Break
The player due to serve the 13th game serves the first point into his/her opponent's deuce court.
After the first serve, the serve goes over to the other player, who then serves the next two points, serving first into the ad court and then into the deuce court.
After the third point, the players alternate, serving two points each — always beginning on the ad court.
After the first six points are played, no matter what the score is, the players change ends (and continue to do so after every other six-point span) until one player wins at least seven points with a margin of two points.
12. If tie breakers are equal then the team which won the number 1 singles full match will be declared the winner.
