Is there a tiebreak in the fifth set at the French Open?

There is NO tie-break in the fifth set at the French Open.

Following a rule change at Wimbledon, Roland Garros is now the only tournament where play continues until a player with two clear games wins.

Will the Australian Open have a fifth set tiebreak?

The Australian Open has a tiebreak in the fifth set.

There is a twist, however.

To win the match, players must reach ten points in the tie-break instead of the usual seven.

Will Wimbledon have a fifth set tiebreak?

Up until 2019, players at Wimbledon played until there was a winner after two clear games.

However, this rule was then changed by now playing tiebreaks when a fifth set reaches 12-12.

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

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

Will the US Open have a fifth set tiebreak?

Yes. Since 1970, the US Open has decided all matches with a five-set tie-break.
