Funny that the player with the worst 5-set record is chosen to speak for the atp player council. They could've chosen someone w/ perhaps a little less bias on the subject. Btw, there are currently 13 tournaments w/ five set finals (I believe theyre all masters series events?) I don't mind 3 set finals either but the back to back day scheduling and five set finals are another good argument for giving masters wins more weight.
“The players strongly support the move away from best-of-5-sets finals at ATP tournaments,” said James Blake, ATP World No. 5 and a member of the ATP Player Council. “This is one step toward ensuring that the last two players standing at any given tournament aren’t sidelined the next week or even longer.”
