In order to prevent tennis matches from going on and on like dog chasing its own tail, the All England Lawn Tennis Club is setting tie-breaks at 12-12 in the final set at Wimbledon. But are those long matches of attrition fun or boring to watch?

Tennis is a sport that requires mental and physical stamina rarely seen in any other sport. Those long matches at Wimbledon that go beyond 12-12 in the final set are a testament to the training and grit these players have to truly give it all for a win. The crowd loves it, too! They want to see players who won't give an inch, stare down an opponent that won't give them anything in return and battle it out to determine who's the better athlete. Cutting epic matches like this short cheapens the sport. Wimbledon needs to keep the traditional rules.

Tennis can be an exciting sport, but it can get tedious to watch if it starts becoming a battle of wills. Players aren't playing to win anymore; they're playing not to lose. The strain their bodies go through is unimaginable. It's unsafe for a human being to sprint so much for that long. These new rules will not only improve the quality of play, but it will also prevent these players from breaking down physically. Marathon tennis is horrible.
