    which means they have to postopne the match till tomorrow which means that first the WTA matches will take place which means that Nadal-Ferrer will finish at 9:30 p.m. which means that Federer-Djokovic have to play on Saturday which means they have no rest compared to Nadal

    well dammit

    First of all are you sure Nadal-Ferr is up first. Second, they will have to split the matches across 2 courts. Both semis in parallel.

    Considering that the Fed-Djoker match will be the tougher of the 2, hopefully they will schedule it first.

    Best would be to fly them to Madrid for the rest of the matches. :D

    This is what happens when you're in the year 2012 and you don't have a roof.

    they'll have to start earlier than 2pm tomorrow. Maybe they'll put Stosur and Errani on Lenglen and Sharapova-Kvitova on Chatrier. Then the guys follow on Chatrier. I'm guessing Fed and Djoker play first.

    For a change , they should schedule Nadal's match second. (when was the last time that happened ? Even at the USO, he gets to play first irrespective of whether he is in the top half or bottom and rest his knees while Fed-Djok battle it out in a 5 setter). If the match is likely to be moved to Saturday, chances are he will threaten a boycott :twisted:

    Yeah...that "open air" tradition is fine for any any event not connected to physical activity.

    This crap got old 40 years ago, and to this day, the tennis PTB still hoard money, instead of spending it on the very thing to keep the event moving forward.

    I hope Errani wins this RG
    She deserves it, by beating two former champs, Kuz and Ivanovic
    Amazing power for her size

    Steroidosur is sure giving Errani a helluva licking in this 2nd set.
