Many of the matches (including finals) were decided by just a few swing points during that critical march towards the ten points. Here are some questions to ponder…
• Is it fair, to focus critical match results on such a small number of points?
• On the other side, doesn’t it make the time more manageable for scheduling other tournament matches?
• Isn’t it also easier on us seniors?
• Should the singles also be played the same way?
• Or, should only the “older age groups” (75, 80, etc) have that feature?
• Should the early round matches (singles or doubles) feature that; but the semi’s and finals play a full third set?
What do you think?
