Tennis matches shortened at Olympics to reduce player strain | AP sports

The men's final is to switch from the best-of-five sets to best-of-three tie-break sets, which brings the gold medal match into line with other singles matches at the Olympics.

Since 1996, the format for the men s singles event has been best-of-three sets in all rounds except the final, but all matches at the 2020 Games in Tokyo will be now played over the shorter format.

The changes in the match format decrease the concern of a player playing more after reaching the final stage of the events.

The men's and women's doubles match will attribute the 10-points tiebreaker at the score of 1-set all.

In Seoul (1988) and Barcelona (1992), all the matches in the men's singles draw had been played in the best-of-five format, with no tie break at 6-6 in the decider for an even bigger drama!

Tennis events at Tokyo 2020 are due to be held at the Ariake Tennis Park, which is undergoing renovation work to be ready in time for the Games.

Britain's Andy Murray and Monica Puig, Puerto Rico's first Olympic gold medallist, won the men's and women's singles events respectively at Rio 2016.
