Hypothetical mini games that could replace the tiebreaker for six all sets
I know the old saying goes if it isnt broke dont fix it, however something about the tiebreak system seems like a lottery..much like footballs penatly shootout and the debate over it.
Is there a better mini game that could decide a set of tennis?
What about playing 5th sets out vs 5th set tiebreakers.
What other mini games could there be?
Id love to see a serve/ace based game. The baselines and grinders have too much of a general advantage in todays game I feel, with the surfaces and racket technology. I know tiebreaks favour big servers, but not enough. Lets give the serve bots a genuine chance to win hardcourt slams for a change.
What about just straight out playing the sets out?
How about some kind of volley based game?
Its hard to think of how to impliment the games into a structured miniture sport, but be creative, see what we could come up with.
