Best of Five Final at Indian Wells in 2005

I just heard from the sales office about my tickets for next year, and they told me that the men's final will be best of five next year, AND the women's final will be on Saturday again!



That's great news for me. I didn't like having the mens and women's final on the same day, and the best of five format is nice too. Maybe no one else cares, but I was excited.

Re: Best of Five Final at Indian Wells in 2005

I like the idea of a best of five final in TMS tournaments. I wish all TMS tournaments would do it.

SINCE THERE'S NO TENNIS ACTION I WENT FOR TONGUE ACTION

Re: Best of Five Final at Indian Wells in 2005

great
back to 5 sets again

last great IW final was in 1999 when Scud beat Moya in 5 epic sets

now they got to convince Canadian and Cinci to move to 5 sets as well
but they've been best of 3 for as long as i can remember.

Re: Best of Five Final at Indian Wells in 2005

that's good news. I agree that best of 5 is more appropriate for a TMS final.

Re: Best of Five Final at Indian Wells in 2005

I personally never understood why IW changed to best-of-three in the first place To the best of my knowledge, throughout the 90's all the finals were always best of five.

Also Miami used to be best of three in the early to mid-90's.

Re: Best of Five Final at Indian Wells in 2005

I like Canada and Cincy having best of 3 sets finals though. For some reason those 2 events don't bother me. Good for IW for implimenting the best of 5 sets finals though.

I will worship Jesus forever!

Go Monica and Guga!!
