Sam Groth campaigns for fifth sets to go on and on and on…….
Former tennis pro Sam Groth is a firm believer in the fifth set going the distance.
“I think the advantage fifth set provides the full test of tennis in terms of the technical, mental and physical aspects.”
There have been calls to play fifth set tie breaks in all grand slams, not just the US Open, but Groth believes a tie break wouldn’t be a fair way for a player to bow out of a big tournament.
“It’s a long time to be out there to have a net cord or a bad double fault go against you and a match swing the wrong way in a tie break.”
