Am I hearing Brad Gilbert right? The guys who finished their round of 16 are going back onto the court for their quarterfinal matches? Back-to-back matches?

At least Fish and Gasquet are coming back out for their quarterfinal match.

Fish vs Gasquet is going to start. I suspect that they will try to get Raonic and Isner on. Probably Grannolers vs Tips too. Dunno about Haas vs Djokovic
 
Quarterfinal match-ups set:

(1) Novak Djokovic vs. Tommy Haas

Marcel Granollers vs. (5) Janko Tipsarevic

(11) Mardy Fish vs. (14) Richard Gasquet

(8 ) John Isner vs. (16) Milos Raonic

Aside from the fact that Djokovic stuck around, you'd have a tough time convincing me that this tournament is a Masters 1000 based on that draw.

Agreed, I've seen better draws in the 250s but what can you do with the Olympics just happening and when no-one turns up?

Feel sorry for fans really. :neutral:

wrong

the problem was Delpo, Tsonga, and Berdych losing, and Murray WO, otherwise except for Fed and Nadal, the best players on this surface were around

poor performance by some, yes, but that's to be expected after Olympics
 
Gasquet breaks back to tie the set at 3.

Loving the Frenchman's game this week. So much talent but still yet to really break through.

I think the doubles match currently on might have something to do with this.

They're barely in the 2nd set and they've already played an hour.
But Fish V Gasquet was supposed to be second on Grandstand and it's been moved to first on Stadium...

Confused.

Okay, cool... maybe he's the main event? :confused:
Is it okay if Novak is on the grandstand and not centre court? Resurgent Haas and the World Number 2........should deserve more, no?

Side Note: Stop Whining Fish...first the court is wet, then the ballkids are doing something wrong, Hawkeye pissed him off and looking at the linesmen!

I think the committee was right on Djoko. I guess this is what happened:

Djoko was initially 1st in night session on center
Then Haas finished too late, so Djoko had to be placed in 2nd match somewhere
But the 2nd slot on Center was taken by Isner Raonic since yesterday,
So Djoko had to go to Grandstand

Extraordinary circumstances, no slight to Djoko or Haas

Honestly mate, I don't have a clue what's going on.

Hopefully it's on soon though. :)
