In the adjacent state, the win is based on total games if the second set is not completed (if both sets are spit, then a tie breaker is used), so you get an opposite situation when a player/team, after winning the first set, will totally tank the second set once down to get to the tie breaker.
wait wait wait

so you're telling me if I lose the first set 5-7 and winning the second set 5-1 when times is called I lose??

No wonder I prefer tournaments
