May I suggest scrapping the Monday start rule? Sometimes it does make some sense, but in other cases it really doesn't imo. For instance tomorrow in Rome 6 matches will be played, why are we wasting a day again? The most glaring case is Roland Garros though with I think 16 matches played on the first Sunday.

As far as I understand the rule is to make sure people don't miss out due to a tournament starting Sunday, but really what are the odds that people on a tennis forum don't know on which day one of the 4 Slams starts? At least for RG a Sunday start would make perfect sense imo.

You play TT, don't you? Compare the number of LLs entering in tournaments with Sunday starts to those with Monday starts. More precisely, compare RG with W. And this is for a tournament that traditionally starts Sunday, not like ST where seasoned players know we start Monday for almost everything.

As for wasting a day, if we did play Sunday it would be less points for each day of progression, to in the end land at the same 1000. We don't have an 8-day scale atm. We could of course make one. It would be more challenging this way. It's not an option changing the last minute, though, so Rome maintains a Monday start. We can have the discussion in the off season and make a poll. Or if it is big demand for it, perhaps already before RG.

I understand your point, I'd prefer playing RG from Sunday but it's better to bring this up in the off season so people aren't caught by surprise. Besides, after this it'd be pretty much NID I'd lose on the first Sunday if we started there
