UTS tournament regulations differ from traditional rules. For example, matches are divided into quarters based on time rather than sets. Tennis players enter the game without warming up, alternately serve the first two serves, can take a training timeout or influence the course of the game using special “cards” (for example, taking the second serve from the opponent). During transitions, players give interviews and communicate with fans.
The Ultimate Tennis Showdown champions were the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, the German Alexander Zverev, the Australian Alex de Minaur, the Frenchman Corentin Moutet and the Chinese Wu Yibing.
