Wiki tennis policy is to include BOTH scores of the tiebreak. Please conform to policy when updating. Thanks. Fyunck(click) (talk) 19:15, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

Do you mean that a score of 7–6(3) should be written as 77 and 63? Because all of the tennis results pages that I've seen in the past list results like 7–6(3) as 7 and 63. Prayerfortheworld (talk) 23:25, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

Tennis policy is not to include both scores of the tiebreak. it wasn't done in any tournament of this year and of past seasons. i can't see why add the winning score now. It's not useful and uncorrect. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.81.171.98 (talk) 19:37, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Incorrect...it is against wiki consensus WP:TENSCR to do otherwise. Both scores must be present and no tiebreak scores in prose. It is done all over the place it's just that many articles have not been corrected. And I believe on June 1st there is going to be a wikipedia tennis drive to correct tiebreaks in as many old articles as possible. Fyunck(click) (talk) 20:58, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
