Hey, how come TTC didn't show the Nadal/Kohlschreiber and Roddick/Davydenko matches?

    Both of those matches were scheduled to be night matches today starting at 8:00pm local time (2pm EST/11am PST), but Tennis Channel didn't show either match. They showed the entire Verdasco/Monaco match on an outer court instead. What gives? :confused:

    Because they were walkovers.

    Not sure about the Roddick match, but the NAdal match was a walkover...didn't see it but Kohlschreiber had to retire after only one game I believe.

    5000 posts and you get "read the news" to an honest question. Unreal.

    It was a walkover, not retirement.

    Really? BOTH matches? Has that ever happened before in the same night session?

    So BOTH Kohlschreiber and Davydenko had leg injuries? Lucky for Roddick and Nadal. :) Davydenko would have beat up on Roddick and Kohlschreiber isn't bothered by high one-handed backhands like Federer is.

    Thanks for the info.

    Too bad because I was looking forward to watching both matches. :(

    They were walkovers. Retired implies that they started the matches..

    the match was played on center court, not an outer court.

    But it was originally scheduled to be played on an outer court.

    Thanks for the info, but those were round robin matches so players could forfeit a match and still continue in the tournament. That's why round robin is a dumb idea.
