See discussion at Talk:Miami Masters--Nitsansh 00:11, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

The result was no move. —Mets501 (talk) 16:10, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
Agreed...I read the talk pages mentioned and the consensus was NOT to move it from the Miami Masters. Why was it moved anyways? Fyunck(click) (talk) 04:44, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Williams' boycott article[edit]

The discussion above dealt with moving articles -- it does not have any apparent relevance to the boycott. With this in mind, I say MERGE.--S. Rich (talk) 17:06, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

  • Support merge to keep things in perspective. --Ohconfucius ¡digame! 04:56, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Disagree This is old news and would probably triple the amount of prose on the Indian Wells page and turn it into the Serena and Venus and other info page. Merge it with the Serena or Venus pages if it must be merged because it would require no more than a single sentence on the Indian Wells page, if any. Fyunck(click) (talk) 05:18, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
I just checked and that link to merge was put up in April 2009 and never removed after the consensus was to leave it be. Talk:Serena_Williams/Archive_1#Merge. I removed the link to here. Fyunck(click) (talk) 07:51, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Indian Wells MastersBNP Paribas Open – There is no such thing as the Indian Wells Masters. "Masters" is exclusive terminology that refers to male-only ATP events. The BNP Paribas Open is a stop on both the ATP and WTA tours, so both men and women play at the tournament. Additionally, as the tournament has changed both name and location several times, there's no generic term that refers to this particular event. Therefore, it should be listed as it's currently known: BNP Paribas Open. --Relisted. George Ho (talk) 00:40, 6 June 2015 (UTC) – Grahamkins (talk) 22:34, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

This is a contested technical request (permalink).  Philg88 talk 05:36, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Sorry, this would be a very contested move. Tennis Project oversees naming and we use no sponsored names because they change all the time. There are so many sources that call it the Indian Wells Masters that this is an easy place to leave it. Fyunck(click) (talk) 22:39, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
    If this is the case, know that Masters is improper terminology and it does not reflect the type of tournament that it is. Perhaps defaulting to Indian Wells Tennis Tournament would be much more appropriate. Grahamkins (talk) 22:44, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
    That would be a possibility but most sources call it the Indian Wells Masters or Indian Wells Masters Series (for both ladies and men)... that's USA Today in 2001, ESPN in 2001, Sports Mirchi in 2015, ANC News Australia... Masters very much reflect the type of tournament it is... right below the majors. "Indian Wells Open" can be sourced though not as popular as Indian Wells Masters. We tend to go with majority of sources that are not sponsored names. Fyunck(click) (talk) 00:03, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose – as mentioned the consensus at the tennis project is to not use the sponsored name for the tournament article unless there are no realistic alternatives.--Wolbo (talk) 00:51, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose – for the same reasons mentioned above this defunct tournament Tokyo Indoor the individual yearly pages were first created using the tournament name then a lot of the pages were changed to the sponsors name e.g. 1978 Seiko World Super Tennis but you couldn't find enough sources but you could for 1978 Tokyo Indoor so they were changed back to the original.--Navops47 (talk) 07:14, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
