I think one week is enough for Madrid. IW and Miami are exceptions, unlike other M1000s, they aren't prep events for a slam/WTF. That's why two-week M1000s are OK in IW & Miami; because of extra days, big names often play also doubles in IW. But in my opinion, Madrid should be a one-week event, it's just prep for RG.

I assume Madrid will get an extra week if it brings more money to ATP/WTA than having MMs in that week. And of course Tiriac wants Madrid to be a two-week event, he wants Madrid eventually to become a slam.

Alex:
Madrid sucks. sorry, I'm not saying this because Nole lost today. Hamburg was a much better tournament. Madrid organizers try so hard to experiment and sh!t. the worst master in tennis history.  :\

Clay Death:
interesting.
 
tiriac has money and he has influence.

I agree, something about it doesn't have the legitimacy of other masters to me.
 
 

Clay Death:
some of the top players don't like Madrid either.
