I think there should be a "half time" before the 5th set. To stop any momentum and make it fair. Thoughts?

Yeah I mean clearly it totally stopped Rafito's momentum as he immediately broke him. If not for that massive momentum shift, he would have broken him twice in the first game.

FYI, it has always been common to take a break before the fifth set..been since I've been watching tennis 1980s. The fact that the rafa took one after the first set and fed took one before the fourth is a fair shake.
