This match I'm talking about, S1 and D1 were the double bagels that cancelled each other out and the opponents won D1 so if it would have been weighted, they would have gotten the win. I feel like this could NOT have been unanticipated by USTA had they thought about it or asked players for feedback for two seconds. Ties are NOT rare. I have a weird situation on my team where one of my strongest players has trouble getting to the courts early (she drops kids at school) and our lower courts start later so she's on line 3 when she plays. Just weird stuff like that. Anyway I want a win to feel like a clear, deserved/earned win lol. This feels arbitrary. Curious why they aren't considering weighing S1?? Or they could weigh all courts at a different amount. I'm in a non-USTA league that does that where each court is worth different amounts sliding down from 50, 40, 30 etc. AND you can get points for winning a set even if you lose.Wow. So glad our area is weighting D1 with 2 points. Makes the math so much easier.
Interesting consequence of line-ups though. Usually best players are on D1. Then D3 seems to be stronger than D2. I guess a lot of teams are going for D1 + D3 for higher shot at a win.
