The Australian Open will no longer play advantage final sets. As from AO 2019 the final set will be decided after six-games-all with the longer of the tiebreak formats – first to 10 points. The decision comes following the most extensive consultation in the tournament’s history. “We asked the players – both past and present, commentators, agents and TV analysts whether they wanted to play an advantage final set or not, and went from there,” Australian Open Tournament Director Craig Tiley said. “We went with a 10-point tiebreak at six-games-all in the final set to ensure the fans still get a sp

An alternative tie-break system called the "Coman Tie-Break" is sometimes used by the United States Tennis Association. Scoring is the same, but end changes take place after the first point and then after every four points.  In 2001, the Australian Open replaced the deciding third set of mixed doubles with an eighteen-point "match tiebreak" (first to ten points and win by two points wins the match).[23] Despite some criticism of the change by fans and former pros,[24] the US Open and the French Open have since gone on to join the Australian Open in using the.

Australian Open organisers earlier this month said the decision was made "following the most extensive consultation in the tournament's history".

The Australian Open has introduced a slight variation to the traditional tie-break in fifth sets. Rather than playing to seven points, the first player to ten points will be proclaimed the winner. As with a regular tie-break, the winner must win by two clear points. How do fifth sets work at other grand slams? For the first time ever, each grand slam will have a different method of deciding a fifth set. Despite being thought of as the grand slam most steeped in tradition, Wimbledon has decided to change with the times and introduce a fifth set tie-break. However, this will only occur if player

The Australian Open has joined Wimbledon in introducing a final set tie-break from next year's competition, following the "most extensive" consultation in the event's history, tournament director Craig Tiley said on Friday. According to the new rules, which will come into force at the 14-27 January event, matches tied at 6-6 in the final set will move into a tiebreak and the first player to reach 10 points with a difference of two will win the contest.

Melbourne [Australia], Dec 22 (ANI): The Australian Open is going to have final set tie-breaks from its upcoming 2019 edition. According to the new rules, the final set will be decided after six-games-all with the longer of the tiebreak formats which means that the first player to get ten points after 6-6 would be declared as the winner. Tournament director Craig Tiley said that the decision was taken after extensive consultation with those associated with the game. A ten-point tie break at six-games-all gets approval as this format is expected to give fans a special finale to epic contests, T

The Australian Open has obtained permission to follow Wimbledon in shortening the potential length of matches by introducing a tie-break in the deciding set across all events. However, in a move that perfectly sums up the lack of uniformity across the four grand slam tournaments, Australian chiefs have decided their preference is to play a “super tie-break” at 6-6, in which the player must win ten points by a margin of two. With approval recently granted by the grand slam board, players are now being consulted to determine whether this should be introduced as soon as the 2019 tournament, which

Before the curtain rises on the 2019 tennis season, a warning to the audience: The script might be confusing because the directors can’t agree on an ending. The Australian Open, which begins Jan. 14, announced Friday that fifth sets in men’s singles matches and third sets in women’s singles will now conclude with a first-to-10-points tiebreaker at 6-6. That means each of the four Grand Slam tournaments will have a different format for deciding deadlocked matches next year. The United States Open had been the only Grand Slam event to use a tiebreaker in the final set, playing a standard first-t

The Australian Open introduced the first-to-10 tie-break format in deciding sets for this year's grand slam. And British player Boulter was the first to win in the new format following her 6-0 4-6 7-6 (10-6) victory against former world number eight Makarova at Melbourne Park.

Tie-breaks will be played in the final set at the Australian Open for the first time in January, after organisers decided to move away from the existing practice of advantage final sets. If the match reaches 6-6 in the final set, the winner will be the first player to reach 10 points. Organisers made the decision following the “most extensive consultation in the tournament’s history”.  “This longer tie-break also can lessen some of the serving dominance that can prevail in the shorter tie-break.” The new rule will apply to qualifying, men’s and women’s singles, doubles, mixed doubles, junior singles and doubles, wheelchair singles and doubles and quads. The first four sets for men and two sets for women will have a normal tie-break, with players winning by two clear points. The US Open was the first grand slam to introduce final-set tie-breaks, with a first-to-seven-points game played at 6-6.

Tiley said Australian Open organisers believe an extended tiebreak still had the potential to provide a special finale to an epic contest. "This longer tiebreak also can lessen some of the serving dominance that can prevail in the shorter tiebreak," he said. "We believe this is the best possible outcome for both the players and the fans around the world." A traditional seven-point tiebreak at 6-6 for the first four sets will remain in the men's draw. In women's singles, men's and women's doubles and mixed doubles, the deciding set of three sets will be p

From 2019 the Australian Open will replace advantage final sets with a 10-point tiebreaker for the first time in its history. The decision by the Melbourne major follows the example set by the US Open, which has used standard tiebreakers in the deciding set since 1970. Under the new scoring rules, once the final set reaches 6-6, a super-tiebreak will then take place. The winner will be the first player to reach ten points with a least a two-point lead. “We asked the players – both past and present, commentators, agents and TV analysts whether they wanted to play an advantage final set or not,
