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!

:woohoo:

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. :yippee:

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

great :D :)
back to 5 sets again :D :)

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.

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

I personally never understood why IW changed to best-of-three in the first place :confused: 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.

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.:yeah:

With the exception of 2003, TMS Miami has also had a Best of 5 final for a long time.

Indian Wells used to have a best of five format in the 90s.
