If it could be managed to accommodate all 128 players, that would be great indeed.

Yes, that sounds better than what I had in mind initially, at least for the rounds two and three.
With most of it and also the separation I would agree.
Only, a single tiebreak (7 votes to victory) is maybe a bit short, even for 1st and 2nd Rd matches.
Imagine the blockbuster Federer-Nalbandian here on MTF.
Bo3 tiebreaks (14 votes to victory) may be more appropriate.

However, there are other problems, that might make a Tennis-score counting format too impractical in general:
Already "Seed elimination" relies to some extent on the fairness and awareness of the voters, with giving the correct score, sticking to the time-rule of voting again and watching out for others who violate rules.
Anyway, if somebody breaks these rules (and it's detected) the score can be corrected relatively easily there.
But with this game and the planned "uncontinuous score" (deuce, advantage, deuce) a score correction would be much more difficult (even with only a few simultaneous matches or with just one).
Probably the counting format needs to be more simple; continuous, and therefore less Tennis-score-like but more like a normal voting.
