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. Shortly following Wimbledon's final set tiebreak introduction announcement, the Australian Open also for their 2019 tournament has now 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 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
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. Organisers made the decision following the "most extensive consultation in the tournament's history". Wimbledon announced in October it would use final-set tie-breaks next year. That chan
Deciding-set tie-breaks will be introduced for the first time at the Australian Open next month. In a move that follows Wimbledon and the US Open, Australian Open organisers have opted for a first-to-10 points tie-break with a two-point advantage at 6-6 in the final set in the men's and women's draw.

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. "We asked the players - both past and present, commentators, agents and TV analysts whether they wanted to play an adv
The Australian Open will follow Wimbledon in introducing tiebreakers in the final sets of all matches, per the Times. The change could be introduced as soon as the 2019 tournament. The Open would differ from Wimbledon's rules by including a "super tie-break" played at 6–6, in which players would have to win ten points by a margin of two. Wimbledon recently introduced a final-set tiebreaker at 12-12 to start in 2019. 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. All four Grand Slams will have different w
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.”

Tie-breaks: no more fifth-set marathons? Not any more. While there remains no sign of best-of-five being scrapped in men’s matches at grand slams, calls for fifth-set tie-breaks to be introduced after Kevin Anderson took six hours and 36 minutes to win his Wimbledon semi-final against John Isner last year. However Australian Open organisers have also moved to spare players from fatigue by introducing a tie-break at 6-6 and, for an extra slice of variation, will use the slightly expanded first-to-10-points version seen in doubles matches. That differs from the US Open, where tie-breaks at 6-6 in the final set involve the traditional first-to-seven points singles format, and means there is absolutely no uniformity across the four slams. Men’s matches at the French Open can still go on for ever. Is this a wise move?
Final set tie-breaks were introduced for all match formats for the first time at the 2019 Australian Open. If a match reached 6–6 in the final set, the first player to score 10 points and be leading by at least 2 points won the match. Katie Boulter and Ekaterina Makarova were the first players in a main draw to compete in the new tie-break format.. For the first time in the men's singles competition, a 10-minute break due to heat was allowed after the third set when the Australian Open Heat Stress Scale reached 4.0 or higher.

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. The decision was made following .. 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 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. The US Open was the first grand slam to introduce final-set tie-breaks, with
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
The Australian Open Tournament is set to introduce a 10-point tie-break should the players be tied at 6-6 in the final set -- the fifth set in the men's competition and the third in the women's -- as of 2019, the organisers announced on Friday. Current and former players were all involved in the decision to change the current format, the organisers of the Australian Open said, reports Efe.

While the tie-break kicks in at 12-all in the final set at the All England Club, the Australian organisers are planning to play a 'super tie-break' at 6-6 in which players must win ten points by a margin of two. Ironically, the plan demonstrates the lack of uniformity across all four Grand Slams. Once the Aussie model comes into play, all majors will have a different scoring system. While the French Tennis Federation are yet to introduce any deciding set tie-breaks, all sets must be determined by the usual first-to-seven formula once the score reaches 6-all at the US Open. Wimbledon and the Australian Open both began discussions earlier this year to cut the length of five-set matches after players complained about the number of exhausting matches.
Tomas Berdych wins Tie Break Tens as Rafael Nadal puts Australian Open field on notice. TOMAS Berdych claimed the first Aussie Tie Break Tens title but it was Rafael Nadal who delivered the strongest message ahead of next week’s Australian Open. RAFAEL Nadal’s quest to win a second Australian Open title took a giant leap forward on Wednesday night with an at times awesome, at times rusty display at the entertaining Tie Break Tens event at Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne. The shortened format featuring seven of the world’s best players and Aussie icon Lleyton Hewitt delivered on its promise of fast-paced action and high-class entertainment with Czech Tomas Berdych defeating Nadal 10-5 in the final to claim the $US250,000 prizemoney.

The decision by the organisers of the Australian Open to introduce a 10-point super tie-break rule in the final set to decide men and women’s matches has divided opinion, with many tennis fans greeting the news negatively on social media. Organisers of the tournament claim that, following extensive consultation, they have followed the example of the US Open and Wimbledon, and introduced a final set tie-break which will come into force when the score is six-all in the final set. The move is intended to shorten matches, and help with scheduling, especially with the extended night sessions in Mel
The US Open introduced a classic seven-point tie-break when players are tied at 6-6 in the decider.

Tie Break Tens, was held on 5 March 2018 and marked an evening of firsts for the tournament. Held at none other than New York City’s iconic Madison Square Garden, it was the first ever Tie Break Tens competition on US soil. Eight world-class female tennis players battled it out for the $250 000 winner-takes-all prize in the first woman’s only competition.

As you might have gathered from the three tiebreaks and the names involved, today’s third round match between Nick Kyrgios and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was a white-hot serve-off. At 1-1 in the third set, Nick Kyrgios fired one particular serve that caught my eye. By this point I was admittedly a little delirious—it’s hard to watch these matches on the East Coast—but it was still memorable that this serve went 220 kmh, because that is pretty honking fast for a serve to go, and as fast as any I had personally witnessed this tournament. Perhaps it is not a coincidence that this year the Australian Open broke ties with IBM after a 24-year partnership. When IBM handles statistics for a tournament, their branding is emblazoned everywhere, especially on the match summary pages. If you want to play a game, try to find the letters “IBM” at least four times on this one U.S. Open match summary.

Australian Open to feature final set tie-breaks. The Australian Open has followed Wimbledon by introducing final-set tie-breaks for matches at next month's tournament. Credit: PA. 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 which go the distance will be decided by a first-to-10-points tie-break at 6-6.
