Tournament Draw and Results
Results will be updated throughout the weekend in PDF format.
The 207 Loyola Men's Tennis Invitational will be played as a Points Of The Compass draw.
At the end of each round, the winners continue their competition in the same direction, while the losers move to a traditional consolation bracket and then to satellite brackets that ensure each team will play four matches.
Each school will enter four doubles teams, and each line of the bracket will be played by opposing pairs. The teams will play an eight-game pro-set doubles match, and the individuals will then face each other in best-of-three formats with the third set played as a super-tiebreaker.
Following is an explanation of how the bracket is composed:
- At the end of round 1:
- The winners go east
- The losers go west
- At the end of round 2:
- The east losers go north
- The west losers go south
- At the end of round 3:
- The east losers go northeast
- The north losers go northwest
- The west losers go southwest
- The south losers go southeast
- At the end of round 4:
- The losers are out of the tournament (unless it is announced in writing before the start of the first match of the tournament that there will be semifinal play-offs);
- The winners play the finals on each draw sheet.
