tennis tournaments

im a little confused about something
I always thought that a tournament had to start on a monday, but why is it that indina wells has stardted on a different day. Sky has just started to show tennis- calling this "day one" but its already the 3rd round-

thanks in advanced.

Nieminen- The lucky lefty of tennis.
Sampras- The hairy champion of tennis.
Ferrero- The mosquito of tennis.
Srichaphan- The Thai- ger of tennis.
Safin - The of tennis.
Bagdatis- The quotesman of tennis "my coach will watch, i will sleep with my girlfriend"
Kiefer- The naive guy, "yeh, me and seb are good friends"
Santoro- The double handed wizard of tennis.
Lopez- IS my hair right? IS my lipstick right?
Moya- The tatoo and muscles of tennis (although nadal kicks his ass in that department).
Tipsarevic- The tatoo of tennis, competing with moya.
Djokovic- Stole Jiri's surname

Sorry if I left out your favourite, just PM me to let me know-- thanks.

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.
