I don't think so, I don't like that format in other sports, but the paying fans get to see another match with great players so, it's a positive for them.

I'd rather just have the final played in best-of-five again.

This. Matches for third place are unnecessary except the Olympics.

Berdych - Tsonga - Wawrinka - Del Potro - Gasquet - F.Lopez - Monfils - Haas - Janowicz - Youzhny - Tomic - Llodra - Hewitt - Gulbis - Mahut - Haase - Schoorel - Sijsling - Huta Galung - De Bakker - Van der Duim - Westerhof - Middelkoop - Koolhof - Lootsma - Meuffels - Sels - Van Rijthoven

All time: Safin - Schalken - Krajicek - Sluiter - Verkerk - Henman - Ivanisevic - Nalbandian - Ferrero - Philippoussis - Sampras - Siemerink - Blake - F.Gonzalez - Ancic - Haarhuis/Eltingh

Still supporting all the Dutchies despite their great choking skills

This. I'm not really that bothered by the lack of five-set finals in the regular tour events, but the WTF final definitely needs to be five sets, to be in any way 'epic'.

A match for the 3rd/4th place? are we at the Olympic games?
But a best-of-five final... oh that would be awesome

Why not? They can have the 3rd place match on the same day as the final.

Re: Should The World Tour Finals Have A 3rd/4th Place Match?

On the Sunday I was thinking:

Day Session:
Doubles 3rd/4th match
Singles 3rd/4th match

Night Session:
Doubles Final
Singles Final

Nah, we're copying the idea of the Olympics instead.
