Wimbleodn adopts final set TBs

I was annoyed when I first read the title as I thought, 2 exceptional matches should not force a change of rule but then I saw that the TB would apply at 12 all and not at 6 all like in the USO. I think this is a fair change of rule. Though it should most affect those who cannot return: Isner, Mahut, Kevin, etc....

It's stupid.  The final of Wimbledon should not be won on a tie break.

The only things that differentiated W from others has been taken away, crap.

At least Final should be left as it was.

any match that goes to 12-12 in the 5th will also be the end of that player's chance in the next match.  They've simply added a nonsense change.

real change would be a tie breaker in 5th but leave the final alone.  Easy. 

But no.

Agree with Daniel. What’s the point of a TB at 12-12? Only Djokovic and Nadal could survive that and be fresh enough to compete in the next Rd.

It should have been set at a maximum of 8-8.

Also agree that the final should remain without a TB.

Cannot understand the utterly stupid application of this idea.
