Will the final be played in best of three or best of five sets in Monaco?

Last year it was best of 3 in Monaco, but Miami changed it this year for best of 5, so we never know;)...

Well I understand that last year was meant to be best of 5, but they altered it at the last minute as the weather was so bad it seemed unlikely that a 5-setter would be finished. Not sure about this year though.

As I said before Billabong - I honestly don't know for sure. It was meant to be 5-sets last year before bad weather intervened, but whether that has changed for this year or not I really can't say. I had a quick look on their web-site but couldn't find anything about it - I'm sure it's there somewhere though if I had time and patience to look properly! I'm supposed to be going down there at the week-end though (providing David recovers on time), so I'll let you know soon enough once I get there :)

I think it's best of five. It would be best of three, like last year, if time doesn't permit a best-of-five.
