The Coman Tiebreak Procedure
What is it?

The Coman Tiebreak Procedure is the same as the present tiebreak (set or match), except that ends are changed after the first point,
then after every four points (i.e., after the 5th, 9th, 13th, 17th points, etc.), and at the conclusion of the tiebreak. The scoring in the Coman
Tiebreak Procedure is the same as a traditional set or match tiebreak, and the procedure for playing the Coman Tiebreak is the same as
a set or match tiebreak. For example, if the Coman Tiebreak Procedure is used when the set score is 6-6, the player whose turn it is to
serve shall serve the first point from the deuce court; after the first point, the players shall change ends and the following two points shall
be served by the opponent(s) (in doubles, the player of the opposing team due to serve next), starting with the ad court; after this, each
player/team shall serve alternately for two consecutive points (starting with the ad court), changing ends after every four points, until the
end of the tiebreak game.

When will it be used?

The Coman Tiebreak Procedure will be used at all USTA League Tennis Sectional and National Championships in the 2006 league year
for all set and match tiebreaks. We will be using the Coman Tiebreak Procedure for all USTA Dallas League matches starting

Principal Advantages

1. Fairness – By changing ends more frequently, the effects of the elements (sun, wind, etc.) are distributed more evenly between the two
opponents as opposed to playing six consecutive points before changing ends.
2. In doubles, the server will always serve from the same end of the court, rather than having to serve from both ends.
