Player Selection Type
This tournament is part of the US Open National Playoffs - a series
of tournaments that gives any player 14 years of age or older who
meets the eligibility requirements the opportunity to qualify for
the 2014 US Open. Sectional Qualifying Tournaments will be held
across 13 USTA Sections to include a men's singles, women's singles
and mixed doubles division between April 1 and July 4. With a
maximum of a 256 singles draw and a 128 mixed doubles team draw,
players/teams will compete in a single elimination draw. Singles
players will play to the best-of-three tiebreak sets and mixed
doubles teams will play two tiebreak sets, no-ad scoring, with a
match tiebreak in lieu of a third set. Within each division, the
top two players/teams will be seeded based on their ATP/WTA
computer ranking (if any). The winner or top available finisher of
each Sectional Qualifying Tournament in each division (men's
singles, women's singles, mixed doubles) will advance to the US
Open National Playoffs Championships in their respective division
taking place in New Haven, CT at Yale University during the New
Haven Open at Yale, an Emirates Airline US Open Series event
(August 15-18 for singles, August 20-23 for mixed doubles). The
winner of each Singles Championship (1 male, 1 female) will receive
a wild card entry to compete in the 2014 US Open Qualifying
Tournament and the winner of the Mixed Doubles Championship (1
team) will receive a wild card entry to compete in the 2014 US Open
Mixed Doubles Championship at the USTA Billie Jean King National
Tennis Center. Go to USOpen.org/NationalPlayoffs for additional
