Disgusting. Might as well get rid of the entire tournament if you're going to implement BS like that.

Davis Cup is THE event for epic five set matches, tiebreaks kill the magic.

Another great tennis tradition gone to appease top players in the hope they'll play more ties.

"La idea es que a partir del año próximo la Davis incluya el tie-break en el quinto set. Lo de jugar siete horas es lindo para los periodistas, pero no para los jugadores. Lo decidiremos pronto", dijo Francesco Ricci Bitti.

The idea is that, next year onwards, DC has fifth set tiebreak. Seven hour matches are nice for the media, but not for the players. We'll decide soon, said Francesco Ricci Bitti.

so, not confirmed *yet*. Hold your horses...

Ah ok, the writer of the article announced it as 'almost decided' on Twitter. And it kind of sounds that way, anything else in the article that makes it more clear?

I don't care one bit about DC, but fifth set TBs are absolutely disgusting in general - definitely one of the reasons why US Open is my least favourite slam.

What a terrible idea this is. I'm not the biggest fan of Davis Cup but don't take away one of the best aspects of it

THIS!! I can't elieve they're actually considering to do that. DC doesn't need Fedalovic to be epic, but it definitely needs its endless five-setters!

If this is the first step to reduce this "tournament" then I'm all for it.

Well, it is the ITF president who came out and said this... no small fish, I agree that it looks very likely atm, but not official *yet*

Does the Olympic Gold Medal match have a tie-breaker in 5th set?

Default Re: Fifth set tiebreak in Davis Cup from 2016 onwards

Unpopular Opinion: I am happy either way. While I like the drama the 5th Setter brings (especially like that match with L. Mayer) I think this is a good way to attract more players in general (not just top). DC is already seen as just a speck in the calendar, and if it makes players be attracted to play it then I think it is a good idea. Unless they change it to something more significant in the sense scheduling, like as I said make it bi-annual, or make it into a post-season tournament, I think this is the best way to keep players from more exhaustion. Be glad it is not No-Ad.
