Any match not completed will be coin tossed by The Championships Committee the following day, the winners of the coin toss will advance through to the next round.The matches will be best of 3 sets, the 3rd set will be decided by a championship tiebreak (first to 10 points, 2 clear).Now that the draw has been done you can not change your partner for any of the doubles events.
