Mixed Doubles

Focus on the female player. Women generally are the lynch pin to winning an overall Mylan WTT match, and this holds especially true in mixed doubles. If she can handle the opposing male player’s shots and consistently return his serve, her team has a decided advantage.

No-Ad Scoring

Games are the first to 4 points. If the score gets to 3-3, the next point wins – no need to win by 2 as with the more traditional format. These sudden death moments are always the most exciting moments of the match, and they’re also when a player’s strengths and weaknesses become a factor. If you’ve noticed that a player has a shaky backhand, anticipate that the opponent will target that side with a serve on the deciding point.
