Taking place between 25-29 November 2020, WTT Macao is a promotional showcase that will offer a first glimpse into the future of the sport. It boasts a thrilling, original playing format and will place many of the biggest table tennis stars under the spotlight of brand-new WTT surrounds.
The first change comes in the Top 4 Seed Battle. Matches will continue to be contested in a best of 5 games format, the 8-point games have been reduced to 5-point games, and Sudden Death will occur at 4 points apiece.
The second change gives the unique opportunity for the Top 4 seeds to select their opponents for the quarter-finals to add extra intrigue to the experimental event. Following the completion of the Top 4 Seed Battle, the highest ranked player will have the first say to decide their quarter-final opponent. Seed 2 will have the second pick and seed 3 the final choice, with seed 4 playing the last remaining quarter-finalist.
This change will bring an added competitive incentive for the players and unmatched drama to the Top 4 Seed Battle, ensuring that WTT Macao offers high-stakes action from the first to the final ball played.
