Quick reminder: the matches will be played in four 10-minute quarters, with a two-minute break between each. The player with the most points after 10 minutes, which will be signified by a loud buzzer, will win the quarter. There will be a loud countdown for each second during the last minute of the match. If both players are tied, a decisive point will be played. If a player wins the first three quarters, the fourth quarter is played for set-average purposes. If they have won two quarters each, a fifth will be played with a sudden-death format. The first one to win two points in a row will be the winner.
