IW moves women's final to Sunday

According to The Desert Sun in Palm Springs, The Pacific Life Open in Indian Wells has moved the women's final to Sunday with the mens. I'm guessing the finals will both be televised together. Didn't they try that in Miami one year? It will be interesting to see if they shove the women's semis on Friday and men's on Saturday or if they intermingle them.

btw....this thread is for people who want to discuss the tournament in Indian Wells. If you want to come in here and rant about what happened in 2001, make your own thread. Some people actually do like this tournament, even though we miss the top players immensely.

I think miami did it in 99 but the semis where still on thursday as I far remember

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

If both finals are on Sunday and the men are playing 3 of 5, how can television show both matches?

I don't like it because the players won't get much time to prepare in Miami and get used to the HEAT

I plan on going so this should be interesting. I wasn't going to stay for the finals but if that's the case, maybe I'll drive back in on Sunday to see both.

with no Williams, Williams, Capriati at this event, it may get boring. Why delay the final? get it over with!

It's a bummer that the W/Sis and JCap haven't been in a while, but it usually has a fairly strong men's field. I think the only other chance I will get to see the guys play is at UCLA in the summer, so it's worth it to me.

I can always see the W/sis and JCap in L.A. or San Diego.

I've seen the Indian Wells committments - they are at the Babsi Schett sit - I cant remember the web address off hand...

Jen is playing.. In fact all the top 20 are playing except for Venus, Serena and Henin and Hingis. Even Mauresmo is playing this year.

Looks like Clijsters and Hantuchova will be the top 2 seeds though.

The men do it, and if the women want equal prize money, they need to be able to do this without complaining...This should help their cause!

Visit MONICA!

Good works can't save you from hell!! Jesus loves you and wants to be in your heart and mind!!!

I will worship Jesus forever!
