Best of 3 is better for singles..as we wanna play or watch players in the top shape.We dont wanna see them doing mistakes because of the losing of stamina.
But i'll prefer best of 5 for Men's doubles.Put the match on the last part.Save the best for the last..

5 games would be way to long and tiring to play lol

15 point best of 5 games on a rally point system would be nice... brings out the old memories of the days gone by, and how it was played back then...
...but i think the current system is good as it is....

How about 5x11, if players skill too far, then the match probably won't so attractive (boring) and the match can finish faster with only need 33 points rally instead on 42 point.
If players are close, 5 games will be very attractive to watch, 5 games also more encourage for TV purposes with more break in between, for players, they also need more tactics/strategies/psychological, and the longest match only require 55 rally point instead of 63 rally point.

Personally, I found out in club level of competition, the new system gives huge advantage to "home" players, as the visitors are struggling to get to the new environment (different lighting, different court surface, different wind drift, etc). With 2 side with fairly equal level of skill level, the visitors always on the disadvantage side for 1st set, at least. If you shorter a set to 11, then before the visitor can finally see the lines clear enough, they are down 0:1 or even 0:2 in set already.

I would prefer best of 5 games for doubles under the new scoring system but 3 for the old system. For singles i would prefer best of 1 game

I would prefer best of 3 games because of fitness issues. But I were fit, i would prefer best of 5 games.
3 game match would be quickfire but in my opinion, 5 game match would test both your physical and mental fitness. To draw a similarity, if you know cricket, one form of cricket is played for just one-day and another one for 5 days. 5-day cricket is real test for players and every player agrees because of what it demands.

Best of 3:
More games means more games that count less.
All games should be important.
All rallies should be important too. (even if I do miss the risktaking and more entertaining play, you could afford in your own service, where errors were "free")
Games are too short, longer games would give more:
Room for errors and room for change and adaption of tactics.
Room and time for comebacks - Which we desperately needs.
Longer games would also give more variety in the play.
The tactical field would be wider towards the stamina side. And the fast, clever and strong nerved players who have benefitted from the current system, would have to change pace during the games as it would become too hard to push on at full speed if the sets were a little longer. Thus tipping the balance just a little towards the endurance players.

best of 3 games to 21 old scoring. this would reward all areas of the game. the new scoring system does not reward fitness and even the matches that go to three ends are still too short.

I agree with a lot of these posts, 3 games is best.
You cannot play at a good standard for 5 games, it just doesn't make an enjoyable game.

well, 5 games can be a breeze, BUT, if your going to play 5 games every match, and around 6 matches a tourney, your going to be next to dead unless you have some amazing stamina
