From November 20th to 22nd, Jiushi Sports launched the "2020 One Goal Win
As the Shanghai Rolex Masters series, the biggest highlight of this game is its unique rules: "One goal wins", only one goal is played, winning or losing is only a moment of excitement.
In actual experience, how do you feel about such a rule? How to choose the right to serve when a goal is determined? The two players who had participated in the wild card competition of the event gave their personal experience to The Paper.
Citizen Mr. Liu.
One goal determines the outcome, which means that any missed shot will result in "sudden death." Therefore, even if a less powerful rookie is against a strong veteran, the latter may also lose the game "hand-skating", which greatly increases chance.
Mr. Liu, who has obtained the qualifications for the wild card tournament, told The Paper that the "one goal win" is indeed more unpredictable than normal tennis amateur events.
According to the rules of the tournament, there are a total of 512 lots in the game. If you want to win the final championship, you need to go through a total of 9 rounds. Any mistake will stop the pace of progress-for amateurs, it is just a control error. It is also a very difficult challenge.
Mr. Liu also said that even if the element of luck increases, the strength of the players is still important.
Another Ms. Zhang, who passed the wild card tournament, also believes that although on the surface the competition system gives more opportunities to weaker players, "but for those who really play well, there are more opportunities at any time."

Compared to a normal tennis game where the ball is served in turns, the importance of the right to serve under the "one ball wins" rule is extremely magnified-a strong serve is easier to initiate an attack, but once a mistake is made, the price of losing the game will be paid.
In the case of mixed competitions between male and female players, the special rules for the gender of the event also give players more room to play.
Ms. Zhang told The Paper journalists that she would choose to receive more serve, "boys only have one chance to serve, and (girls) may have some advantage."
张女士告诉《 The Paper》记者，她将选择接受更多的服务，“男孩只有一次服务的机会，而（女孩）可能会有所优势。”
Mr. Liu said that he will also focus on serving the ball next. "If you draw a female player to play against, you will probably let the male player serve, but the serve is still a more active weapon and more aggressive. If you receive the serve, you may still be passive."
However, both participants said that the bonus is not the ultimate goal, but hope to experience the process of the game more and enjoy the professional venues where Federer, Nadal and other top players have played.
The two contestants revealed that in addition to themselves, many tennis enthusiasts around them have signed up for this competition-in addition to the 40 wild card slots, a total of 472 places are open for registration for this event. Registration on the morning of October 16th After the channel was officially opened, the quota was quickly robbed.
On the day of the game, the players also hope that they can go to Qizhong Tennis Center with their family and friends to enjoy the joy of tennis. It is reported that contestants can get two tickets, and fans can also buy tickets on the WeChat applet of "Shanghai Rolex Masters".
In addition to the competition, surrounding activities such as theme fairs and special performances will also be held on site. Mr. Liu is also looking forward to this, "It's like a big tennis party, the experience should be great."
