Why are Doha semis and finals on friday and saturday?

Most tourny's usually have them on sat and sund except just before a slam. Will Dubai be the same? Or is it becuase the mid east has it's weekends on the friday and saturday.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Because EVERYONE LOOOOOOOVES Dubai, and they gotta be ready for it

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

The new week starts on Sunday, because Friday is a holiday, as it is a holy day for Muslims. It took me some time getting used to having Sundays off and going for classes on Friday, when Pakistan switched to a Saturday/Sunday weekeend. What rocks is that on Friday, we only have a half day because of the afternoon prayers.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Didn´t the camera-crew stopped working last year due to their prayers? We just got the total-view of the court, no zoom or something like that for some time (do I have a false memory?). Anyway, interesting culture, thx for explaining! Sunday, work
