For those new to a compass draw, following is a brief description of how it works.
All players start in one single draw, ranked 1-64, “the EAST” draw. In round one, seeded player 1 plays 64, 2 plays 63 etc. After round 1, the draw is split, winners remain in the EAST draw, non-winners move to the next draw (WEST). Then we play again, 1 plays 32, 2 plays 31, etc, in East. In the newly created WEST draw, player 33 plays 64, 34 plays 63 etc. The draw keeps splitting (winners one way, non-winners another) for 3 more rounds, until there is 8 separate draws, E, NE, N, NW, W, SW, S, SE. (hence a Compass)
If there are no walkovers/withdrawals, every player is guaranteed 4 sets. If you make the semi of your [8th of the] draw, you will play 5 sets, and if you make the final, you will play 6 sets.
Ultimate glory goes to the EAST winner (who is undefeated) and to the EAST runner-up (who has lost only to the EAST winner). Tournament ranking continues from EAST (ranks 1-8) anti clockwise through NORTHEAST (ranks 9-16), NORTH (ranks 17-24), NORTHWEST (ranks 25-32), WEST (rank 33-40), SOUTHWEST (ranks 41-48), SOUTH (ranks 49-56), then finally at SOUTHEAST.(ranks 57-64).
