The Australian Open is set to introduce tie-breakers in the final sets of all matches, with the change to potentially be introduced for the 2019 tournament.

The move would see a ‘super tie-break’ played at 6-6, meaning players would need to win ten points by a margin of two, reports The Times.

Players are now reportedly being consulted as to whether the change should be brought in for next month’s event, or if instead a trial will take place in qualifying and junior matches.

The move would mean epic matches such as 2018’s semi-final between Simona Halep and Angelique Kerber (6-3, 4-6, 9-7), or 2017’s stunning Ivo Karlovic v Horacio Zeballos first round contest (6-7, 3-6, 7-5, 6-2, 22-20) would not have happened as they did.
