Time to eliminate Miami and Indian Wells

They drag the season. Take way too long, we don't need these days of no tennis.

They should be cut to 64 draws and played over 1 week and maybe eliminate them entirely.

It feels like a transition rather than actual tournaments

Re: Time to eliminate Miami and Indian Wells

surely it would be a priority for the calendar to switch at least one of these to only one week ... or even take off Indian Wells (although I prefer Indian Wells than Miami from TV, but I've heard that Miami is a better stadium and organization, history, all of this ...)

useless old guy

Re: Time to eliminate Miami and Indian Wells

64 player draw and just have these events as 1 week events would be enough.

They won't get rid of them.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Red Card is a new low...what if parera gets trashed again in the clay season??? would you ask for rome to be removed as well?

Re: Time to eliminate Miami and Indian Wells

They should both definitely be shortened to one week each, there's absolutely nothing interesting about the first week anyway, and please dont' compare it to the first week of a GS.

As for eliminating them, well that's just Everko being his usual bearded clam self, so just nod and go on with your lives.

Allez!

That's orangutang crap. It has nothing to do with Nadal losing, he has had success in them before. Djokovic has won them as well. Read the damn thread before responding next time superslam.

Re: Time to eliminate Miami and Indian Wells

Let me restate.

They are too slow, these days in early parts of the week with no main darw tennis is not needed. They are badly placed in the schedule and take way to long. 4 weeks for the 2 tournaments? Too much

Seriously the IW+MS are two of the most important MS in the season. I think they should make the clay season longer and add importance to MC again. For grass Halle should have been a MS.

techno not better than classic rock.

Re: Time to eliminate Miami and Indian Wells

I'd suggest to completely eliminate mud season and make good ol' grass season a proper one, but that's just me of course...dirt season is for talentless grinders and pushers, this is not the kind of tennis I prefer to watch. How about this topic for a change?

Get rid of one of them and play the other on Har-Tru.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
