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.

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.

Didnīt 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 :eek: :lol:
