Does Wimbledon have a fifth set tie-break? French Open, US Open and Australian Open final set rules – The Sun

WIMBLEDON is back and Novak Djokovic will be looking to retain the title he won against Roger Federer in 2019.

And anybody watching that match will remember that it went the distance in an epic fifth set.

Here's a reminder of the fifth set rules at all the grand slams.

Does Wimbledon have a fifth set tie-break?

Until 2019, players at Wimbledon used to keep playing until there was a winner by two clear games.

However, this rule was then changed with tie-breaks now being played when a fifth set reaches 12-12.

And the new format was used in the final the same year when Novak Djokovic triumphed over Roger Federer.

Wimbledon's rule change means all four Grand Slams use a different format to decide five-set matches.

Does the French Open have a fifth set tie-break?

The French Open DOES NOT have a fifth set tie-break.

Following a change of the rules at Wimbledon, Roland Garros is now the only tournament where play continues until one player wins by two clear games.

Does the Australian Open have a fifth set tie-break?

The Australian Open DOES have a fifth set tie-break.

However, there is a twist.

In order to win the match, players must reach ten points in the tie-break rather than the usual seven.

Does the US Open have a fifth set tie-break?

Yes. The US Open has used a tie-break to decide all five-set matches since 1970.
