The main differences:
- Doubles is played up to 6 instead of 8. If tied at 6-6 then there's a standard tiebreak.
- There's no warm up before singles matches after the doubles matches. What teams are now doing is they will just stay out on the courts to practice/warm up with their own teammates.
- For singles, there's no 3rd set. In place of the 3rd set is a super tiebreaker up to 10 must win by 2.
This experimental format as ended...for now at least.
