    Yeah I'm on Fed side with this. For one, GS should never be reduced to best of 3.

    I would love for some master 1000 events and obviously the ATP finals to be best of 5

    Djokovic, Federer unsettled on match length

    As Fed said on the actual, there isn't a single best of 5 event which sucks

    I am OK with best of 3. Best of 5 is basically a coin flip when top players square off. Injuries become an issue. It is also better for the older players who can extend their careers which would be better for tennis overall.

    I like a tiebreak to substitute the fifth set.

    A best of 5 Finals would be good.
