Re: Monday Final at O2 in 2012 ??

Can see those with tickets for the first Monday not knowing who they are watching until they get there!

Can't see that happening. I imagine they'll modify the schedule early on, they probably haven't decided yet.

Or ask Bercy nicely to play their final on the Saturday :)

Re: Monday Final at O2 in 2012 ??

No one seems to have mentioned it:confused:

It will start on Monday 5th Nov 2012 as Bercy Final is on the Day before

So unless they are going to mess up the schedule, the Final will have to be on a Monday night ???

Any confirmation ???
Yeah WTF will start on Monday, Nov 5th. They will probably just modify the schedule and stay with a Sunday final.

Starting on Monday is a necessity as there will no longer be a week off between Paris indoors and the WTF.

3 matches in one day isn't too bad. They're only best of 3 after all and it will only be required on the first two days as you suggest. Luckily it's indoor so they don't have to worry about weather or light.

Yes but how ???

The Best way is

Monday 2 Group A 1 Group B
Tuesday 1 Group B 2 Group A
Wednesday 2 Group B (same as this year)

But how do they fit in the third match ???

They would have to have a longer afternoon session as evening finishes too late
It is not going to be easy, I will give you that. You can fit the singles in 4 days, the big issues is how to fit the doubles

Tuesday 2 Group A 1 Group B
Wednesday 2 Group B 1 Group A
Thursday 2 Group A 1 Group B
Friday 2 Group B 1 Group A


'if you reduced the doubles teams to 6, you can have something like this

Monday
1 group a + 2 doubles
Tuesday
2 group b 1 group a + 1 doubles
Wednesday
2 group a 1 group b + 1 doubles
Thursday
2 group b 1 group a + 1 doubles
Friday
1 group a + 1 doubles

Just look at atpworldtour.com and the ad concerning the WTF. It says November 5th until November 12th (Monday). So it's obvious, isn't it?

Fun for whoever gets to play the Paris final if they're expected to debut at the O2 on the Monday.

If they must scrap that week off then Paris needs to move back a week and have some smaller events on the last week of the regular season.
