Tsitsipas discusses how Tie Break Tens could grow to become a very important tennis format

Stefanos Tsitsipas, the world No. 3, believes the Tie Break Tens format has the potential to “revolutionize” tennis. Tsitsipas, who finished second at the French Open this year, will compete in the Tie Break Tens event in Dubai on Friday.

“It’s a new format, a faster format, much more exciting for fans of a younger age.

“There’s going to be energy, there’s music, there’s a whole lot of vibrancy put into it which makes it like a breath of fresh air,” Tsitsipas said as per reports on TennisHead.

“It will revolutionize tennis, I would say, bring it to another dimension”.

At the Tie Break Tens Dubai, each match will be played in a super tie-break format and will run between 10 and 25 minutes.

“I don’t think there’s anything wrong with tennis.

In today’s world, everything is moving really fast, there are a lot of distractions, everything tends to be faster, quicker,” the Greek added.

“And the idea stemmed from there, making tennis much more exciting, with more energy and more intensity put into every single point.”
