Doubles tie-break: who serves first?

Whichever player was due to serve the next game serves the first point of the tie-break game from the right hand court. The following two points are served by the player of the opposing team due to serve next. The rotation of serves continues as it was in the previous set unless a match tie-break is being played instead of a third set. In this case, teams can change the order of who serves first in their team. The player/team whose turn it was to serve first in the tie-break game receives in the first game of the following set.
