    Looking at the schedule of play for today Acasuso is supposed to play Volandri in the opening morning match (which the scoreboard said he won).

    The live score board is showing Acasuso playing right now (same day but in late afternoon) against next round opponent Almagro.

    Tennis rule allow this for professionals? seem unfair. I played 3 days ago and I'm still sore :)

    when there is rain typically they will play 2 matches in a day to get back on schedule. Look at the German Open last week where Kuznetsova or Henin had to play 2x I think on the final day.

    Yup, he's not the only one.

    Hey - they're getting 5-100k per match :) You'd probably play a couple in a day for that!

    Sure I would play a couple of matches for that $. But it is definitely a disadvantage for a player to play twice in a day against someone who have a day rest. Would love to see ATP stat for players without rest.
