    I posted this in the Pro Match Results section as well.

    Ok I understand that weather is bad, but couldn't they build more proper and secure stadium if such wind is possible there, or they could have organized the tie in some other venue. Spain has many of them on clay.

    Also I think none of the players are happy to stay additional day or two in Spain and arrive late in Indian Wells which starts on Wednesday.

    What if weather is bad for another couple of days or they can't fix the stadium?

    Typical slap dash construction. They do not build things the way they used to.

    Fire the engineer. So why are they in a temporary stadium? They can't play this tie in Valencia, Barca or Mardrid where they already have tennis stadiums.

    Now they're planning on finishing up on Monday which means it'll be a tight schedule to IW. The setting of the stadium is beautiful could even match Monaco. They should have read the two week weather forecast though.

    Apparently, there was an uproar last year when the Spanish captain chose to play in Madrid. It has to do with altitude and the way it affects players' games. But that doesn't explain Valencia, (yet.)
