Whether singles, doubles or mixed doubles and regardless of men or women, the rules in table tennis are uniform. To win a set, a player or team needs eleven points and at least a two-point lead. Serving is also simple: after two serves in a row, the serve moves to the other side of the table and therefore to the opponent. At a tie at 10:10, the serve is alternated after each point. Depending on the event, three (best of five) or four (best of seven) winning sets are needed to decide the match. In Munich, all doubles will be played as best of five, while the singles will be contested in best-of-seven format from the main draw onwards.
