In the OOP here

in court 3 and court 4 you can see the players participating today
but I don't know any results...

Yes thanks I also saw it in the OOP, but I can't find anything about it - no results, no drawsheets, no explanation of the format which seems to be unusual. It is really annoying that they have the event but then don't bother to communicate any info about it.

When I was in Eastbourne over the weekend & Monday, I saw the draw up on a board. The 1st round format is 4 groups of 4. I think that then leads into semis & final. Can't help with finding the results though!!!

Thanks bluepastures

Looks like it may be in the same format as the world cup finals - groups of 4 with the 1st and 2nd in each group going through to a knockout phase. Just guessing as there are 8 slots for the 2nd round matches on the OOP.
