new tie break system??
anyone know why the winner of a match is sometimes decided by a 'tie break' instead of a third set?
i'm now following the 2nd round match between Daniela Hantuchova/Kevin Ulyett and Ai Sugiyama/Thomas Shimada from the net... and after each pair wins a set, they do not play the third set... now all of the sudden, each has 6 games and they play tie break to find 10 points.
Just now, Hantuchova/Ulyett won the match..
the same case also happens 2 days ago when Prakusya/Adams beat Eagle/Schett... they won 10-7 in the third set which only took 11 minutes! it was a bit weird if i thought they were playing until 6 games each at the third set. so Why is this tie break replacing the third set??
anyone please inform me....
