Question About Doubles ...

... when do they play the super third set? Only in regular WTA events? I thought a few years ago they started it in majors ... but today Hingis/Hantuchova went to a 6-4 in the third.

In spite of the Grand Slams, in all the tournaments.

Re: Question About Doubles ...

It's not in Grand Slam tournaments, except for mixed doubles (everywhere except Wimbledon)

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.
