I LOVE tiebreakers.
I didn't lose a tiebreaker all last year and so far this year. (Knock on wood :mrgreen: )
I especially love tiebreakers in lieu of a 3rd set. Ultimate in pressure play.

There are so many things that I do or adjust too during tie breakers depending on who I play.

2 of the most major for me are:

- Get my first serve into the body in. I rarely go for aces during tiebreaks. It's all about weak replies for me. Plus the serve into the body is my most reliable serve.

- I try to mini-break at EVERY opportunity. My objective is to win by as huge a margin as possible. The closer it gets the more tension there is and pressure on me to hold serve.
If I'm 5-0 with 2 mini breaks, I will work my like crazy to break my opponents next 2 services.


What are some of your tips for Tiebreaks?
