    sorry I've also posted about this in the General ATP thread.
    12-12 is probably the best choice. I guess you won't see many deciding tie breaks, and is winning 13-12 any less worthy than winning 14-12. I don't think so.

    12 all is sensible for the players. Don't really think there will be many TBs.

    I have always been against tie-breaks in final sets (to be honest I dont like TBs much anyway) but thye health of the players is of prime importance and we all saw what happened at Wimbledon this year.
    I do think 12-12 is a far compromise - I would hate to see someone lose a final over a couple of rushed points in a tie-break but that's the equivalent of a further 4-5 games. Hope it works out well.

    I would have preferred the TB earlier in deciding sets but obviously varying opinions and most will be relatively happy with the compromise. In a sense quite radical for Wimbledon to make the change now, even if overdue.
