Wimbledon needs a fifth set tiebreak!

Some think fifth set tiebreaks in slams are stupid. Now you've seen why a tiebreak could be a good thing. What do you think?

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Wimbledon needs a fifth set tiebreak!

I think it`s good as it is.Last year we had drama with 16-14 and it was acceptable.Something like this is a complete rarity and probably won`t be matched.I don`t think rules should be changed just on one match where two guys serve amazing and are struggling to put any good return in

Re: Wimbledon needs a fifth set tiebreak!

And stop absolute epics that come along once every...well, never before or after this.

This is one of the best sporting events I've ever seen.

So the answer is NO WAY!!

Super-tiebreak to settle in the 5th, first to 14 points.

Re: Wimbledon needs a fifth set tiebreak!

I think they should introduce tiebreak at some points, like 15-15 or 20-20

Novak Djokovic - Backhand Lover - Flavia Pennetta
Juan Martin del Potro - Stanislas Wawrinka - Benoit Paire
Juan Carlos Ferrero - Lleyton Hewitt - Andy Roddick
Soderling - Davydenko - Tipsarevic - Ljubicic - Volandri

TT: W Umag (ATP, 10), W Trimbauch (Ch, 14), W Busan (Ch, 11), W Tanger (Ch, 10), W Napoli (Ch, 09), F Palermo (Ch, 09), R16 Us Open (Slam, 09) - Best Ranking: 65
TT D: W Poitiers (Ch, 14), SF Roland Garros (Slam, 14)

Re: Wimbledon needs a fifth set tiebreak!

No. USO should remove 5th set tiebreaks on the other hand

Re: Wimbledon needs a fifth set tiebreak!

Nope, the current format leads to some epic matches which is great. The Isner-Mahut match is insane but it's an anomaly it's not like this is going to happen again anytime soon.

Re: Wimbledon needs a fifth set tiebreak!

A 5th set tiebreak would make the most sense at Wimbledon....seeing as it's harder to break serve on the grass, therefore you're more likely to have these matches where no one can break. But I doubt that is a real consideration unless this starts happening more often.
