Re: Tennis considers double bronze medals and 3rd set tie-break for 2016 Rio Olympics

stupid idea with cancelling bronze medal match... i don't think that either Azarenka or Kirilenko would have wanted to get bronze without a fight.

As for tiebreak , after Fed-Delpo i will agree with it. Schedule is too tight to pla long matches

What's the other way to get a bronze besides both Semi-Finalist Losers???
I think it's stupid
What a way to ruin the integrity of the Olympics
If it is such a problem, make it longer
I do think they should have a WTT Style Olympics Teams event though
Although that would still ruin the integrity

Re: Tennis considers double bronze medals and 3rd set tie-break for 2016 Rio Olympics

All they need to do every four years is have Cinci and Montreal take turns to be played in the post US Open gap. That´s once every eight years. The post US Open tournament would hardly suffer as Azarenka, Serena, Sharapova didn´t play Montreal anyway, Kerber/Stosur lost early. The 2nd major tournament before the US Open would benefit as most stars would opt to use it as their main preparation. If they did that they could extend the Olympics to a proper 12 day event and have the stars in better form.

Re: Tennis considers double bronze medals and 3rd set tie-break for 2016 Rio Olympics

Just move tournaments around to place 3 INTL in some weeks and set 2 weeks out for Olympics. Bronze medal then can be played. Tie break, however, can be considered.

Re: Tennis considers double bronze medals and 3rd set tie-break for 2016 Rio Olympics

Don't care about double bronze because really its just a consolation play-off as it is, also as a boxing fan I'm used to this occurrence. 3 set TB sucks.

Re: Tennis considers double bronze medals and 3rd set tie-break for 2016 Rio Olympics

Noooo, such a bad idea.
Even this year alone, I really liked seeing how much winning bronze meant to a player (aka Vika). It just wouldn't be the same if both semifinalists automatically got medals.

You forget that the summer Olympics are not always held in the same month. Although the recent 3 OG were in August, Atlanta and Barcelona were in July; Seoul and Sydney were in September. I don't know when will be Rio, but there is no one-size-fits-all scheduling solution.

Nooo! I like the bronze match - makes the semi finals all to play for, and then a really competetive bronze medal match too.
