I also heard it's best of 3. But always thought it will be best of 5.

Hmm, I'm still confused. Is anyone sure it's best of 5?

Re: IW Final Best of 3 or 5 sSets?

i don't know, there is nothing on steveg's site. But it does say that monte carlo and hamburg are best of three. So maybe this one is too.

edit: but then again Miami is best of five

Re: IW Final Best of 3 or 5 sSets?

The ATP rule book says that finals will be best of 3 BUT this year there can be exceptions if approved by the APT. I am convinced I read that both Indian Wells and Miami are best of 5 this year, but can't remember where I read it!

Next year, best of 3, no exceptions, according to the rule book

Re: IW Final Best of 3 or 5 sSets?

The last I heard Indian Wells and Miami have retained best of 5 finals because they are 2 week events, the rest have gone down to best of 3.

I haven't heard anything official to contradict that yet.

Re: IW Final Best of 3 or 5 sSets?

as i said in the other thread, the official ATP rules for 2007 say that all ATP event finals are to be best of three EXCEPT indian wells and miami

therefore, it is best of 5

Ah yes, the link saiprakash posted just before my last post takes you eventually to an ATP news item:

"Eleven tournaments with best-of-5-set finals this past season will move to best-of-3 in 2007: Barcelona, Basel, Gstaad, Kitzbuhel, Stuttgart, Vienna and the ATP Masters Series events in Hamburg, Madrid, Monte-Carlo, Paris, and Rome. ATP Tennis Masters Series tournaments Pacific Life Open and Sony Ericsson Open will maintain their five-set finals for 2007."
