World TeamTennis is a mixed-gender professional tennis league played with a team format in the United States, which was founded in 1973. Originally played on a no-line court, each match consists of five sets. Each set features a different configuration. Prior to each match, coaches decide the order in which the sets will be played. Each player on a team usually plays in at least one of the five sets. Scoring is no-advantage; there is no requirement to win a game by two scores; at deuce, whoever scores the next point wins the game. The first team to reach five games wins each set. A nine-point tiebreaker is played if a set reaches four-all. One point is awarded for each game won. If necessary, extended play and a supertiebreaker are played to determine the winner of the match.
