All 8 teams compete Friday in the final matches. The matches are as follows:
Sano/Takayama vs. Morishima/Yoshie
Sasaki/Nakajima vs. Smith/Inoue
The 2nd & 3rd matches are irrelevant to the final outcome. But we’re almost 100% certain to have a tiebreaker match to determine the winners after all the matches are completed. The only way there can be an outright winner is if one of the 2 matches between the teams still in it goes to some sort of draw.
The tour and tournament wrap up Friday.
