Tie-break sets are now nearly universal in all levels of play, for all sets in a match; however, the tie-break is not a compulsory element in any set, and the actual formatting of sets and tie-breaks depends on the tournament director in tournaments, and, in private matches, on the players' agreement before play begins. Tie-breaks are not used in the final set in the Australian Open for singles before 2019, the French Open for singles, Wimbledon before 2019, or the Fed Cup, nor were they used for final sets in Davis Cup play or the Olympics before 2016.  In 2019, the Australian Open introduced a "super-tiebreak" for singles in the final set, replacing the previous format in which the final set would continue until one player was ahead by two games.

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.

The US Open has played a tie-break at 6-6 for almost 50 years, while the French Open does not use any final set tie-break.

The Australian Open has followed Wimbledon by introducing final-set tie-breaks for matches at next month's tournament. But, while Wimbledon will have a standard first-to-seven-points tie-break at 12-12, Australian Open matches that go the distance will be decided by a first-to-10-points tie-break at 6-6.

The Australian Open is set to follow Wimbledon and introduce final-set tie-breaks. The change could be introduced in time for the 2019 tournament in January. However, while at Wimbledon the final-set tie-break is to take place when the score reaches 12-12 in games, in Melbourne they plan to go to a tie-break at 6-6. The ‘super tie-break’ will be won by the first player to reach 10 points, with a margin of two.  Players are reportedly being consulted about whether to introduce the ‘super tie-break’ from 2019 in Australia or trial it during qualifying and junior matches, with a final decision to be made later. Tennis Australia are seeking to decrease the number of long-lasting matches during the Open and the move might also help with scheduling, as matches can currently start close to midnight under the current rules.

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,

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.

A partire dalla prossima edizione, in programma dal 14 al 27 gennaio, lo slam aussie concluderà il set decisivo con un super tie-break a 10 punti (come nel doppio): per le donne al terzo set, per gli uomini al quinto. La decisione di Melborune segue quella di Wimbledon, che dal 2019 introdurrà un tie-break (a 7 punti) per assegnare il set decisivo arrivato sul 12-12. Con gli US Open che da tempo hanno adottato il tie-break, l’unico major che conserva il set decisivo a oltranza resta il Roland Garros. Gasport. © riproduzione riservata.

2018 Australian Open - Day 14. 20-time Grand Slam champion and defending Australian Open Champion Roger Federer opened up about the recent new 5th set tie-break rule made by Tennis Australia for the upcoming Australian Open.

Melbourne: The Australian Open has joined Wimbledon in introducing a final set tiebreak 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 January 14-27 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. “We asked the players — both past and present, commentators, agents and TV analysts whether they wanted to play an advantage final se

In most scenarios, advantage 5th sets make for epic, memorable encounters and provide a satisfying conclusion–look no further than the other semifinal of this year’s Wimbledon between Djokovic and Nadal, which will be remembered as an epic match for a long time. John Isner is arguably the best server in the history of the sport (only Karlovic has an argument over him), and one of the worst returners ever as well.  There’s no epidemic of unreasonably long 5th sets in men’s tennis; they’re incredibly rare and can almost entirely be pinpointed to one man. It makes no sense to change a rule that provides so many epic finishes because of one man; Isner himself advocated for 5th-set tiebreaks after the match (as did Anderson for that matter).  Kevin Anderson might have been a different player today if there had been a 5th set tie break.

The Australian Open's decision to introduce a match tiebreak in deciding sets has drawn mixed reaction from ATP players. "A ten-point tiebreak at 6-6, it affects hardly any matches during the event," Andy Murray was quoted as saying by the Brisbane Courier-Mail. "There are other things tennis could look at to change the matches and make them a little more exciting." Alexander Zverev was critical of the change, saying the players had not been asked for their opinion and it deprived the event of special contests. "We weren't at all. I don't think any playe

It is the 11th Grand Slam singles title of the Serbian’s career as he retained the Australian Open title he won last year. He continues to hold three of the four Grand Slam titles, with only the French Open eluding him. Djokovic survived a break point in the opening game of the match and then rattled through five straight games to eventually win the opening set 6-1 in just 23 minutes.  The set headed for a tie break, and Murray got off to an awful start with two double faults, and that enabled Djokovic to build up five Championship points and he duly took them after a couple of attempts to win the third set tie break 7-3. A sixth title means that Djokovic equals Roy Emerson’s record for the most Australian Open titles, and continues his hoodoo over Murray who loses in the showpiece at the Rod Laver Arena for the fifth time in the last seven years.

Australian Open has yet to decide on the format for the tie-breaker but it is also reported that unlike a Wimbledon where it will be taken at 12-12 in the final set, the organisers in Melbourne will bring in the tie-breaker at 6-6. What could be different is that unlike the other sets, the fifth set tie-breaker will award the win to the first player to reach 10 points instead of seven, with a difference of two. Before any final decision around the tie-breaker rules is taken, however, players will be consulted and a decision will be accordingly taken. The 2019 Australian Open is less than 40 da

In the third set, the Spaniard got an early break but soon, Nishikori broke back to make it 3-3. From there on, the two men held their serves and took the set to the tiebreak. Nishikori then got the better of Carreno Busta in the tiebreak and took the match into the 4th set. In the fourth set, Nishikori m

Few 5th sets go beyond 12 games anyway. So why ruin a perfectly good system for the occasional aberration.
