Romanian Open 31 August-1 September 2019

Concept:

All the tournaments of the EPT 2019 must be played by the following concept:

  • 16 participating couples / teams
  • Saturday: Group phase (4 groups of 4) Sunday: Finals
  • Every team plays one game against each opponent in the group
  • A team gets 1 point for a victory and 0 points for a defeat
  • The first 2 teams of each group pass to the elimination stage A and the 2 other teams pass to the elimination stage B.
  • Classification in the groups are determined based on the following criteria:

-Points

-Sets won

-Games won

-If two teams are equal based on the above criteria, the result in their match is decisive

  • The matches in the group phase and the elimination phase are played by a best-of-3 (normal tie-break)

Ranking:

The system is based on a dynamic ranking as we know in tennis and Padel. In this system both teams can win points, also when a team loses his game. In this way, we give maximum competition and every game become important.

For every game won, the team will recceive 10 points. For a win game, the winner will earn 100 extra points.

EXAMPLE:
  • A game in with the result 6-2 3-6 6-4.
  • Winning team will gain: 6 + 3 + 6 = 15 points + 100 points for winning thegame
  • Losing team will gain: 2 + 6 + 4 = 12 points
