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 went with a 10-point tiebreak at six-games-all in the final set to ensure the fans still get a special finale to these often epic contests, with the longer tiebreak still then allowing for that one final twist or change of momentum in the contest. This longer tiebreak also can lessen some of the serving dominance that can prevail in the shorter tiebreak. “We believe this is the best possible outcome for both the players and the fans around the world,” Tiley continued. The event format for Australian Open 2019 are as below
However, many tie-break games are played with different tiebreak point requirements, such as 8 or 10 points. Often, a 7-point tie-breaker is played when the set score is tied at 6-6 to determine who wins the set.. The score of games within a set is counted in the ordinary manner, except when a player or team has a score of no games it is read as "love". The score is written using digits separated by a dash. Tie-breaks are not used in the final set in the Australian Open for singles, the French Open for singles, Wimbledon, or the Fed Cup, nor were they used for final sets in Davis Cup play or the Olympics before 2016. The US Open now uses a tiebreak in the final set, both in singles and in doubles, and is the only major tournament to use a tiebreak in the final set for singles, but the Australian Open and French Open do now use a final set tiebreak in both men's and women's doubles.

Tie-breaks will be played in the final set at the Australian Open for the first time in January after organisers move away from existing practice of advantage final sets. John Isner's epic Wimbledon victory over Nicolas Mahut in 2010 is the longest match in Grand Slam history. 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.

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

The Australian Open will introduce final-set tiebreaks from next month. The deciding set in singles and doubles will draw to a conclusion after 6-6 using 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 th
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

To win the decisive tie-break, a player will need to be the first to 10 with an advantage of at least two points. The move means all four Slams now use different rules, with only the French Open holding off from introducing a tie-break in the decider. Speaking at the Hopman Cup in Perth this week, Federer -- who said he had been asked for his opinion on the change by tournament officials -- admitted marathon final sets would be missed by some. But Federer, aiming for his third successive Australian Open title and seventh overall, said he was personally “a bit torn” between the options. “I am okay with any format really,” he said. “Thing is, when it goes to six-all in the fifth, you’ve had plenty of chances to win it, or lose it, so from that standpoint how it ends is secondary in my opinion.”
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.

Roger Federer (SUI) vs Cameron Norrie (GBR) 2019 Hopman Cup Round Robin Match Point HIGHLIGHTS: Roger Federer d. Cameron Norrie, 6-1, 6-1. 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
The introduction of the super tie-break follows two marathon men’s matches that took place at Wimbledon during the summer. Kevin Anderson required six hours and 36 minutes to defeat John Isner. Then Novak Djokovic spent more than five hours to overcome Rafael Nadal. In 2019 all four grand slams will have different scoring systems in the final set. The Australian Open will have a super-tiebreak at 6-6, Wimbledon will have a standard tie-break at 12-12 and the US Open will have a standard tie-break at 6-6. The French Open is the only major to continuing having the traditional scoring system. Continue Reading.
The Australian Open’s move to kill off advantage sets and introduce ‘super tie-breakers’ to break the deadlock in men’s and women’s matches has been widely condemned by tennis fans. From next month’s tournament at Melbourne Park, a tie-breaker will be employed when the score reaches 6-6 in the fifth set of men’s matches, and the third set of women’s matches.

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. Tennis Australia were seeking to decrease the number of long-lasting matches during the Open and the move should also help with scheduling, as matches routinely started close to midnight under the previous rules.

Tie-breaks will be used in the final set at the Australian Open for the first time next year after organisers decided to follow Wimbledon in abandoning advantage final sets. AFP | Dec 22, 2018, 08:20 IST. (AP Photo). SYDNEY: Tie-breaks will be used in the final set at the Australian Open for the first time next year after organisers decided to follow Wimbledon in abandoning advantage final sets. In matches that reach 6-6 in the final set, the winner will be the first to reach 10 points. Wimbledon said in October it was reverting to final-set tie-breaks. The change came after Kevin Anderson's semi-final with John Isner this year lasted nearly three hours. Anderson eventually won the set 26-24 but the exhausted South African went on to lose the final in straight sets to Novak Djokovic. Anderson led calls for the rules to be changed. The 2019 Australian Open takes place from January 14 to January 27.
