Post Where will the 'super-tie-break' be in use ?

A month ago, I read somewhere that the ITF has decided that, instead of a third set, a tie-break will be played where the winner needs 10 points for victory.<br />Will they use that rule a some low challengers or what ?

They had to go to it for the mixed final at the US Open. The crowd seemed a bit bewildered. The goal seems to be to "get it over with" as soon as possible. After all, why should the crowd be subjected to another set featuring 4 people who actually know how to volley? (Sarcastaroundô <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> )

I'm in favor of the tiebreak at the end of the final set, not instead of it.

They are using the super tiebreak for all Hopman Cup mixed doubles matches - for both live and dead rubbers.
