You'll often see a Tennislink entry with a default on Court One. That's usually somebody who got stuck in traffic and no one bothered to move the lower players up.
Yep what happened to us
Line one Singles played
They defaulted Line 2 singles - they had a no show
We defaulted line 1 doubles -We had a guy go to the wrong location so matches had started before he over ran the 15min mark and defaulted the match.
Line 2 doubles was played
They defaulted line 3 doubles- They had already planned to default # 3
