Each match consists of:

Five (5) sets
Each set is played first to six (6) games with a 4 minute shoot out at 5-all.
No ad scoring applies for each game and each game won counts as one (1) point for the teams total.
Set Format

Each match features five (5) sets:

Men's Singles
Women's Singles
Mixed Doubles
Men’s Doubles
Men’s Legends Singles
The order of play to be decided by the home team and the team line up is given to the umpire 45 minutes before the match starts.

Match Winner

The team that wins the most games accumulated from all five sets wins the match; if a match is tied after five sets the Super Shoot Out determines the match winner.

Team Standings: A team that wins a match receives 4 points

For the losing team:

A team that wins more than 20 game points wins 2 points
A team that wins more than 10 game points wins 1 point
A team that wins less than 10 game points in total gets 0 points
League Winner

Team with the most points won, wins the league.

In the event of a tie in team standings, the team with the most match wins is declared winner with the following criteria, in this order:

Head to head standing
Number of games won
Number of games lost
Biggest games winning margin in any single match win
Coin toss
Coin Toss/Serve

At the start of each match a coin toss decides which team serves first in the first set of each match.

The team that served last in the last game/Shoot Out of the previous set will automatically be the receiver in the next set.

In case of a Super Shoot Out, a coin toss will decide who serves first.

Shoot Out & Super Shoot Out

A five (5) minutes “Shoot Out” is played at five (5) games all to replace the traditional seven (7) point tie breaker.

The Shoot Out follows the traditional tiebreaker rules meaning the player to start the Shoot Out serves for one (1) point and from then onwards every player serves for two (2) points.

There will be no change overs and the player which wins the most points within the four (4) minutes wins the set.

Players have a 20 seconds shot clock between points and lose a point in case the shot clock runs out.

If the score is tied at the end of the five (5) minutes, the next point wins the Shoot Out and the set.

Each player receives one (1) additional player challenge during the Shoot Out and any un-used player challenges will be carried over from the set.

The "Super Shoot Out" is played the same way as the "Shoot Out" but it lasts for seven (7) minutes and is played to settle the score in case the points total between the teams is tied after five (5) sets.

A coin toss decides who serves first in the Super Shoot Out.

Each player receives two player challenges during the Super Shoot Out.

Unless otherwise agreed, the Super Shoot Out is played between the leading men’s players of both teams . In case the leading player is injured, the team can decide to substitute with the other male singles player, or with a doubles, legends player.

Final Set Importance

The final set of each match will be played until either the leading team in overall game scores wins the final set.

If the trailing team in overall games wins the fifth (5th) set and the trailing team is still behind in overall games won, then the match continues until either the trailing team has won enough games to equal the overall score and forces the play of the Super Shoot Out or the leading team wins one (1) more game to win the match.

In case the player of the team which is leading in overall games won gets injured, then the trailing team automatically wins the set with the total numbers of games needed to equal the score and to force a Super Shoot Out.


Shot Clock

A shot clock manages the following and can be set, stopped and re-started only by the Chair Umpire:

20 seconds shot clock between points
20 seconds shot clock between points during Shoot Out and Super Shoot Out
45 seconds shot clock during change overs
60 seconds shot clock for coach's timeouts
3 minutes shot clock after the end of each set
Any time violation will result in a point loss by the violating team
Venue Entertainment

DJ Irie and Freelusions will entertain the spectators at all the venues.


Each Team Coach can call for a "Time-Out" at any time once (1) during each set; each time-out lasts for 60 seconds, only.

Power Point

Receiving player can call a "Power Point" once every set indicating that the next point counts double.

We'll just see what happens here.

The format is pretty similar to World Team Tennis so it's something that Daniela has experience of and the travelling won't be too intense as the action is spread over three days in each venue and there's at least one day off after each city. I expect that Serena Williams will probably play most of the singles while Daniela will probably play mixed doubles.

Daniela just wants to play tennis and enjoy herself so hopefully she has fun doing this and it doesn't disrupt her preparation for 2015 too much.

Personally I think Slings is a much better name than Slammers.

Flipping through the dials last night and found Tennis Channel was showing a match from an arena that looked like it was in this part of Asia, and as the match was in progress an interview was ongoing of Venus Williams. I got a little excited thinking this is that league Daniela is in. Didn't take long to figure out that it was another league, the Championship League. Heaven help us, now there's two of these dumb things. Guess it doesn't matter what we think as long as Dani enjoys herself. And please, let her come out of this with no injury and let her results after this league be better than they were after WTT!

I tried to decipher the rules. You guys thought WTT was hard to figure out. This set of rules is harder to figure out than the Dead Sea Scrolls! :roll:

Daniela's playing singles against Ivanovic and mixed doubles with Bruno Soares against Mirza & Bopanna for Singapore against Indian Aces tomorrow. In Saturday's tie against UAE she plays singles against Mladenovic and mixed doubles with Soares against Mladenovic & Zimonjic. She's not playing on Sunday.

Question is, will there be any streams?

Post subject:  Re: International Premier Tennis League

Try drakulastream.eu or goatd.net, eddy.

There might be something because it's international, in Asia and with a lot of big stars.

That....could have gone better.

Lost in mixed doubles to Mirza/Bopanna 4-6,and then bagelled by Ana 0-6.

Post subject:  Re: International Premier Tennis League

That sucks. From what I've read Ivanovic played really well and the scoreline was a reflection of her performance rather than Daniela playing badly, winning a game would have been nice though.

Ivanovic was grinning away like a Cheshire cat on prozac afterwards, balls to that, I preferred her when she was coached by Sears.

Hopefully Daniela can do better against Mladenovic tomorrow.

Judging from that result, we must remember that it is still %*$$%*((! 2014 and that won't change for 34 more days. Makes you want to despair and wonder if there is anyone left that Dani can beat. But then I see that picture of her with Andy Murray and that priceless smile. That helps the attitude immensely!

Post subject:  Re: International Premier Tennis League

I really couldn't care about this league. Just want Daniela to have fun stay injury free and make adjustments to her game. Hopefully Daniela was trying to do that against Ana which is why she didn't play well. Her advice from Carlos will take time to sink in. Hopefully she can play better tomorrow. Take the money and run Daniela lol.

Also the power point system is ridiculous!!! A random double point is just #facepalm

Take the money and run Daniela lol.

Of course, the very best quality Daniela possesses is that she takes the money and gives some of it to children's hospitals. :hearts:
