[R] Daily time series

I'm dealing with time series with 1 observaton for day
(data sampled daily). I will create a ts object using
that time series and the function ts(). In ts() help is written:

The value of argument 'frequency' is used when the series is sampled an integral number of times in each unit time interval. For example, one could use a value of '7' for 'frequency' when the data are sampled daily, and the natural time period is a week, or '12' when the data are sampled monthly and the natural time period
is a year. Values of '4' and '12' are assumed in
(e.g.) 'print' methods to imply a quarterly and
monthly series respectively.

But what value should assume start in ts function?

Here is a time series:

1/1 10
2/1 20
3/1 30
4/1 40
5/1 50
6/1 60

x<-c(10,20,30,40,50,60) ## observation
serie<-ts(dati, start=c(1,1),frequency=7) ##creating ts object

serie ## printing ts output

Time Series:
Start = c(1, 1)
End = c(1, 6)
Frequency = 7
[1] 10 20 30 40 50 60

Could someone help me?

Thanks in advance.
