Post When does the schedule 'jump' one week back ?

The question sounds a bit strange, so I will explain:

The year usually has 365 days, that's 52 weeks and 1 day. So, if you have a 52-weeks-schedule, the tournaments will begin one day earlier every year. For example, Gold Coast started on January 1st last eason, this time it's December 31st.<br />To equate that, you have to transfer the whole schedule one week back every 5 or 6 years.

So my question: is there any official rule when that is to happen ?

the Australian Open always finishes the last SUNDAY in January.

Wimbledon final is 1st Sunday in JULY<br />US OPEN always starts last MONDAY in August.

<br /> It just pans out this way ...

Good luck to my favs

Eggy, the Wimbledon final has been on the 9th of July before, but I think that's the latest date.<br />Thanks anyway. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
