JUst read on a british news site that the Wimbledon organisation has made an end to endless 5th sets... for mnext year onwards, the 5th set will have a TB when it goes to 12-12...

A positive change to the slam -format... a TB at 6-6 is still my preferred option, but it is a start. 

Now it is  up to AO and Roland Garros to follow.

That's a smart decision. Wish men would play 3-set. I can't imagine sitting there watching a 5-hour tennis match.

It's about damn time. The best Wimbledon news ever for both the fans and the players. Why should one set last longer than an entire match? And particularly if the match is just a bunch of aces and nothing more? A total snoozefest for the fans and completely unfair to the players as they are completely spent from such a grueling match.
