That is at 12-12 isnt it?
Indeed. Brought about by KAndo and Jisner.
The isner game was a decade at least before.
Seems odd it is held up as reasoning for it
Not that one, the Kevin Anderson v John Isner Semi final.
Oddly I dont remember that!
After the final set went 50 games its burned into my mind!

I have a vague memory of Anderson in the final.
That's about it

Stupid rule change
Been that way at the US Open as long as I can remember.

I get they need a limit for earlier rounds but it would be great to have a limitless 5th Set in the final of all 4 Slams.
Has it?
Idiot idea
The champions tie break at Wimbledon makes slightly more sense
I thought the Wimbledon Final Tiebreak in 2019 was an anticlimax as well.

I'm a traditionalist, but not much stays the same these days. I'm convinced the early rounds of Grand Slams will go to Best of 3 sets soon, too.

Yep, but it shouldn't be for the Final.
Please do not confuse Denis Ovens with Denisovans.

Anyone know if Nadal has been shite or has Schwartzman played lights out?

Two of the five supposedly 'worst losses' were 1-2, and two of the remaining three that were 0-2, there was at least one set which got to a tie-break.
Schwartzman played impressively yesterday.

Nadal didn't look fit from what I saw.

Shapovalov has impressed me the most this week moved very well on clay considering his game is suited to hard and grass
