The 8-Team Doubles format has been changed back to a Round Robin format (same as the singles) with 2 groups of 4 teams, 3 round robin matches plus the semifinals and final instead of an elimination draw.

No-Ad scoring will be used in the first 2 sets (vs. Ad scoring); the 3rd set will remain a 10-point tie-break. There will be (1) Doubles Alternate team  

This is gonna make it really tough on girls who make the Finals in both. If Barty or Sabalenka won both events (unlikely I know) they would need to play 10 matches in theoretically 7 days against the world's best in both fields. Huge ask.

I actually thought having ad scoring in the first two sets was special for the YEC as it's the only tournament using this format of scoring but then with a tie-break set.

Round robin is definitely better than single-elimination. Would they get more days to complete the matches?
