13 May 2024      Recently, I've seen a lot of tennis matches decided by the same, 7-point tiebreaker used to decide a set.   It seems to me that if one player gets hot and wins 3 of the first 4 points, he or she has a high probability of winning the tiebreaker.   And so, it's almost like tossing a coin, but not quite.   I hope the ITF rules committee will consider using a longer tiebreak game to decide a match, say, first to 9 points or 11 points (and ahead by 2 points) ?
