The sudden-death tournament features no games, no set, and only tiebreaks. Because of that, every point counts. The first player to ten points, with a difference of 2 points, wins the match.
It’s actually unbelievable. I didn’t know much about Tie Break Tens – we’re used to playing long matches, which can be a little tense sometimes at the end but this is tense all the time. It’s fantastic for the crowds and a great part of the process of becoming a great tennis player as well.
