View Full Version : Your ideal masters 1000 schedule

A few weeks ago on Sky Sports the presenters did an i'deal schedule', this included some changes to the masters 1000 schedule. I liked the majority of their changes and wondered what schedule for the Masters 1000 tournaments would work best, this is what I came up with.

Early January - Sydney
Mid March - Indian Wells
Late March - Miami
Mid/Late April - Monte Carlo
Late April/Early May - Rome
Early June - Queens
Late July - Toronto (not Montreal - make that a 500)
Early August - Cincinnati
Early October - Madrid
Late October - Paris
Early November - London (World Tour Finals)

Madrid Clay, Montreal and Shanghai should be 500's.

They should all be 64 main draws, no first round bye's for top seeds with best of 5 finals. Players should have to commit to a minimum of 7/8 of the 10 events.

Ideally if the AO is the true Asia Pacific slam you want all the Asian tournaments played before AO, like Shanghai Masters, Beijing and Tokyo500s all in Jan played before he AO. But the problem is it'd be too cold on north hemisphere in Jan.

Most ideal scenario would be having two masters before each slam.

2 masters -> AO
-> 3 masters -> French
-> 2 masters -> Wimby
- > 2 masters -> USO

-> YEC.
