You can't just say that "the whole of the past match is thrown in the dustbin". They played three sets, and at the end the score was 1-1 in sets, 6-6 in games. There has to be some point at which you say "enough is enough - these two players are tied, and we need to break that tie". If a tennis match goes on for three hours and the scores are still level, it needs to be ended, even if the ending is as unpredictable as tossing a coin.

Look at it this way: Justine and Jennifer played 34 games to reach that point. What if those 34 games had been distributed 0-6 6-0 11-11? Do you think they should keep on playing until the third set score is 27-25, or 36-38, or 102-104?
