Mumbai Final Moved to Monday

Due to today's rain in Mumbai, the singles final between Tursunov and Berdych has been moved to Monday. The forecast for Monday though is still more rain, so there's a big chance that both players will just share the title and the prize money.

If that does happen (although I'm hoping it doesn't), will it be the first time that a singles final won't be played? Any tennis historians out there who remember a similar situation happening?

Re: Mumbai Final Moved to Monday

It has happened before in Monte Carlo when the final between Vilas and Connors wasn't played and Jimbo would be the one who was happier about that.

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".

Oh okay.. How would that work though? Would they be named co-champions? How will the ranking points be given?

Not that i know of. But yeah in case the singles is cancelled the each player will get $41,300 and about 150 ATP points. At least the fans won't be dissapointed that their favorites did not lose.

Or maybe they will be disappointed that neither of them "won"

It happened in Rooterdam too. A final between Lendl and another big name. A bomb alarm caused the final to be postponed and eventually not played at all.
The bomb alarm was a false one, incidentally.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

They were co-champions and they had a different points system then.

They will both get the same points, if not completed.

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".

Nothing to worry about, he will get there and stay there on his own terms eventually.
