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 2012 US Open. Thirteen USTA sections
will run a Sectional Qualifying Tournament 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 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, a WTA event, part of the Emirates Airline US Open Series
(August 17-20 for singles, August 22-25 for mixed doubles). The
winner of each Singles Championship (1 male, 1 female) will receive
a wild card entry to compete in the 2012 US Open Qualifying
Tournament (August 21-24) and the winner of the Mixed Doubles
Championship (1 team) will receive a wild card entry to compete in
the 2012 US Open Mixed Doubles Championship (commencing August 29)
at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Go to
