Yes.

That is why I don't understand people who claim that playing on in the fifth is bad.

It is different than playing a TB, and equally interesting.

People still talk about the high BH volley Roddick didn't make, and it wouldn't have happened, if there was a TB.

It also cracks me up how different people pick random scores in the fifth, when, according to them, a TB should be played.

I mean, how the bloody hell do they know why exactly that point to start playing a TB is the most beneficial to tennis?

:cool:

I am not a big fan of tiebreakers and certainly not in the fifth set of a GS match but I can see why people want to have a tiebreak in the fifth. I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday's match and personally can't relate to the feeling that a match should end just because there's another match after that which the crowd wants to watch more.
But I guess it would be good for business if they have a tiebreak after 10 all or 12 all in the fifth.

Yes, the semi Djoko-Nadal was amazing last night. Hope they go on play same today.

But i think they could forbidd 2 things in tennis. Towels between points and choose 2 balls out of 3/4. Its crazy annoying.

A lot of the time, it's just to wipe their mouth in an habitual way.

And the ball obsessing, especially when they have to round them all
up for inspection and selection, is very annoying.

Yes, I do, but do I enjoy watching 2 players play 8 sets worth of it in one sitting? No. I wouldn't want to watch my two favourites of all time play 8 sets worth of tennis in one go. That's just stupid, especially as it's not a final, and you still have rounds afterwards to play.

As for determining when a 5th breaker should be implemented there is obviously no right answer. I think most people say 12-12, which essentially and not unreasonably means you play 2 sets worth of games, and if one person still can't finish the other off by that point then you just cut to the chase.
