Nick Kyrgios likes to try new things, and the FAST4 tennis format seems to be a good one for him.

What’s the FAST4

They call it FAST 4 because you win a game after 4 points (i.e., No-AD format); you win a set after conquering four games.

Therefore there are four key rules:
1- No-AD system;
2- Lets on serve are player;
3- Tiebreak apply on 3-all (5 points to win a tiebreak);
4- The first to conquer four games wins the set.

The format was initiated in Melbourne in 2014 during an exhibition between Roger Federer and home favorite Lleyton Hewitt. The Swiss won that match 4–3(5–3) 2–4, 3–4(3–5) 4–0, 4–2.

Why Kyrgios likes the format

Nick will take on Nadal in Sydney in an exhibition that will be played with the FAST4 format this coming Monday. The Australian is extremely keen on the format to comment

“Fast 4 is great because it allows you get to look at some of your main competitors prior to the major event, but you’re not playing full matches and running the risk of injury

It’s something different to what we usually face on tour; it brings the pressure points or big points earlier which is fun to play but also fun to watch for the crowd.

As it says on the tin, it’s fast and exciting. Aside from that, it’s another showcase to have people come along and watch and or talk about, and surely that’s only a good thing for tennis.”

Would prefer a Fast6 format. No-Ad, No-let on serve, AND 20s serve clock.

I really do not like this formats. It was ok for the mixed doubles at the Hopman Cup, otherwise they just change the philosophy of the game

Not a fan of the format. I would use it only in exhibition.
