Tennis officials are "considering adding third-set tiebreakers" at the next Olympics after some marathon matches in London this year, according to the AP. In addition, Bronze Medal matches "could be eliminated to lighten the loads of players entered in multiple events." Int'l Tennis Federation President Francesco Ricci Bitti said the matches this year were "very balanced and very long and that ruins the scheduling somewhat." If Bronze Medal matches are eliminated, it would "mark a return to handing out two bronzes for each of the semifinal losers." The process already happened at the 1988 Seoul Games (AP, 12/8).
