For first-time viewers the absence of the 1st and 2nd rounds can be rather challenging to understand. As there are only 8 players, conventional tournament progression would result in a rapid event, instead, a Round Robin held 4 matches every day. The Round Robin works off the basis of 2 equal groups. The 8 players were divided into 2 groups of 4 players each. All parties in a group compete against each other, i.e. player no.1 will go up against players no.2,3, and 4 from Group A. Group B will proceed in the same way and the top players from both groups will advance to the semi-finals.

The semi-finalists are selected based on numerous criteria, but the main factor is the greatest number of wins. Then, in the semi-finals, the first-placed player from one group will compete with the second-placed player from the other group and vice versa. This way, the final can be played by people from the same or different groups. All singles matches will be played to the best-of-five sets.
