Re: tennis tournaments
Miami and Indian Wells are the 5th and 6th biggest tournaments in the world, and both include women as well as men. They cannot be real two week events because the Slams would get mad, so IW starts qualies on Wed and main draw on Friday, Miami starts qualies on Monday and main draw on Wednesday. Both have 96 player draws (32 seeds with first round byes) and the players would have a mutiny if they tried to do that in 7 days.
Best twitter posts of the epic match:
@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.
@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.
@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
