Tie-breaks at 12-12 in the final set. I think this is a good move. I'd like to see it at 12-12 in the other slams.

This is all Isner's fault! Seriously though, this is a v good sensible decision - 12-12 is a nice balance - we get to see the drama of players trying to break/hold serve in a competitive drawn out 5th set, but 12-12 allows it to be concluded before it gets out of hand and adversely impacting upon the schedule and the physical condition of the players.

I agree with the decision. I've been saying they should do this for years.

Gosh. A change by sports administrators that is sensible. Of course it would only be the Australian and the French that would have to change as the USO has a tiebreak, at 6-6, already.
There was little doubt that Anderson had not much left for the final at Wimbledon. People may recall that after the titanic Isner-Mahut match a few years back Isner had to play the next day and promptly lost his first FOUR service games as he was totally cream-crackered.
