Either way can be used provided that will be used to be announced ahead of the competition. If it is used the “Tie-break set” should also be announced if the decisive set will be played as “Tie-break Set” or “Advantage Set”.
a. “Advantage Set” The first player / team to win six games wins that “Set”, provided it is a difference of two games against the opponent (s). If necessary, the set will continue until the difference is made.
b. “Tie-break Set” first player / team to win six games wins that “Set”, provided it is a difference of two games against the opponent (s). If the score is 6-6 should be played a tie-break.
A match can be played after the “best of three sets” (a player / team must win 2 sets to win the match) or after the “best of 5 sets” (a player / team must win three sets to win the match).
