The tie-breaker was created to replace the traditional rules whereby a player had to win a set by a two game margin with at least six games. Matches could literally go on for days with set scores such as 16-14, 9-7, 6-8, 15-17, 6-2 …. A true match score at a Wimbledon match earlier this century!!
At 6 games all here are the rules:
Coman Match Tie-Breaker
A Coman match tie-breaker is played when the score of the match is one set all. The rules are the same except the object of the tie-breaker is to win 10 points with a margin of two points. Examples of the tie-break scores are 10-2, 10-8, 11-9, 15-13. The winner of the match tie-breaker wins the match.
If players accidentally forget to switch after the first point, play will continue using the standard procedure. If players play one point, switch and then accidentally forget to switch after the 5th point or the 9th etc., the point played incorrectly will stand, make the correction and continue playing the tie-breaker using the Coman method.
