Reckon Wimbledon have it right, tie break at 12-12. But no Tilley and the AO need to be different and introduce what really is a crap way to decide it. Hopefully sh!t like this comes back to bite the administration.
Didn’t even know that Wimbledon rule, should be a GS global rule. Feedback so far hasn’t been good for the super so hopefully they do something.

Learn how to slice Medvedev. Not sure how this guy has got as far as he has without an effective slice. Out of the young guys I don't see him being anymore than a top 20 player only. Doesn't have enough tricks.

Wimbledon has got it right. 12-all. It prevents the crazy Isner matches but keeps the tradition of how you meant to finish an epic match(etc winning games). Keeps it fair

Yeah. Wouldnt want to be them. I always sit on the baseline when I am watching tennis matches live, and i always get the calls wrong.

In 10 years time, we will have electronic hawk eye line calls. Will be for the better, but we will miss the human element.
Nooo, I hope not, that's for Nintendo-wii tennis game not the real one :). The human element adding so much drama to the match, keep it like that please.

That should have been a point replay. I don't see how it is not..
It should have been because it affected the point, or at least could have, which is enough to justify a replay.

Yes Busta wasnt getting to it but often what happens is when a ball is called out before the player hits it, often a player is just free to rip the ball without the fear of it going out. Whether or not Nishikori had this mindset, I don't know, but its possible. Its a terrible call for mine.

Sometimes what we hear on TV is couple of seconds lagging from the actual play, anyway hopefully this incident will trigger to change the 10 TB rules.
In my view, once an out call is made, regardless of whether the ball was hit or not after it, and it is challenged, it should be reviewed.

They called it out and it was in. Play should have stopped right there.
