US Open No Tiebreak

I am a purist, I like Grand Slams to all have no tiebreaks. That way people have to be good at the whole game, including returning serve, to win matches. But Tiebreaks in the first four sets is the only way to speed things up, so I guess it's okay like that, even if I like it the other way.
However, I hate the fact that US Open fifth setters always end in one lousy, boring tiebreak! US is the only GS to have this, and it sucks!!! It is simply boring to watch tiebreaks!!! Those who play better under pressure, like those who can ace do well at the US because of this rule!!! Without pressure, we will see tennis from the actual best players of the sport.

So who likes this idea?

Re: US Open No Tiebreak

Capriati lost 3 3rd set tiebreak semis at the USO
Dementieva, Seles and Henin.
I agree in a way, the tiebreak usually is a bad way to end the match in a slam.

Re: US Open No Tiebreak

I thought I wouldn't like it, but to watch a match with a rd set tie break can be so thrilling..with the serve strenght of most women it is more important on the mens tour (see wimbledon final)

elena used to be the 3rd set tiebreak queen..maybe that's why i liked it

Re: US Open No Tiebreak

I think it's much better to have a "normal" 3rd/5th set in the USO

Re: US Open No Tiebreak

Agreed on the fact that US Open should follow the rules at other slams. I disagree that tiebreaks are boring; they are not especially in women comeptition. They favor, however, a specific profile of a player.

Re: US Open No Tiebreak

I agree...whilst I wouldn't want the tiebreak to go altogether I certainly wouldn't want it in the deciding set. I know they want tennis to speed up so they can get more tv deals & casual fans etc but I hate that a GS is potentially decided with tiebreak...I mean you can play terribly & just scrape through holding serve all day & then just get lucky for 7 points or your opponent can just get really unlucky for 7 pts. Some tiebreaks are great & played well but sometimes it's a bit like a lucky dip as to who ends up winning it & I don't think that should decide a GS in the final set.

I will say though that if Ivo Karlovic is playing then they should just immediately start with tiebreaks & forget playing up to 6-6 in the sets.

yeah...i agree with you...but probably they don't do that because it would be too hard for a player to play many tournaments in a row...i think at least they should cancel it from the finals of every tournaments and in the Tier I (i don't remember their new name!)

well.. I could agree about that, for sure, but I think there're not a lot of matches which end 7-6 in third.. at least not the same player plays a lot of matches of this kind..

Re: US Open No Tiebreak

I actually dont mind the third set tiebrakers. Every other slam is notable for something. Let The US Open be different. I could care less.

Re: US Open No Tiebreak

Exactly. With two hardcourt slams, let this be what sets the US Open apart. All us 'mericans have short attention spans anyways.

What were we talking about?

Re: US Open No Tiebreak

I prefer the 3/5th set tiebreak. If not having a last set tiebreak is so great then why don't they use it at other tournaments outside of the three slams? If you want to be a top elite tennis player, then you have to deal with big pressure situations and points, ie. the tiebreak. Plus it speeds things along, some of these mens matches (ie. Wimbledon final) can drag on for WAY too long.

Yeah but that's part of the appeal, the fact that the match will not end til someone can break & hold...or hold & break, depends who's serves first etc. That Wimbledon final was a prime example, tension supreme & way more than if you knew all they had to do was get to 6-6 & then they'd have a straightforward tiebreak & the final set would probably all be over in an hour absolute max. I pushed my Sunday dinner back by like 4 hours so I could see the whole final, didn't even want to leave to get the food started so it could cook in the background whilst I watched, it was that exciting & unpredictable. Tiebreaks suck out the drama at the end of a final.

Re: US Open No Tiebreak

I agree and disagree. It's kind of unfair because the tie-break can really ruin the momentum a player has built up.
