Do you ever play with variants of tiebreaks, such as 20 point tie breaks win by five?

Sometimes I like substituting extended tiebreaks instead of playing regular sets.

I've played before like best of three, 20-point sets, win by 5.

I want to play like a set of 50 points, win by 10.

Winning by these larger margins is fun because there will be so many momentum changes! You could be up by 4 points at 19-15, but then you lose the next 2 points, win one, and lose 2 more, and then its 20-19! And then let's say you iwn one point, but then they win 5 more points! Then it's 21 to 24! Then they are just 2 points away from winning!

Let me know your thoughts!

And let me know if you guys have done this before and if you are interested in doing this in the future!

no but when hitting, i like to do say 1st to 10 (can be any number) points but the point must start with a rally of say 4 shots at least.

Sometimes I play best of 5 10-point tiebreakers if I'm short on time (or even best of 3).

I've played 9 point tb where the 1st to get 5 points wins, so if it's 4-4, that next point is it

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
