The good news is tomorrow and Friday are supposed to be beautiful. The bad news is it looks like another rain filled weekend Saturday Sunday and even Monday
There won't be many matches on Sat/Sun like Thurs/Fri. So weather should not affect that much.

Different session, different ticket-holders. They probably still hope that ticket-holders for the night session get to see the evening matches. I wouldn't be surprised if the Djokovic match gets later delayed or cancelled if conditions are still crap.
Yeah. Big oof either way for the tournament though due to the doubling price of the day session.

I can't believe 18% of predicting the mightu Fed there's no way he wins this he didn't win Madrid which is a lot faster conditions and now he has to play a condensed schedule there's no way the mighty Federer wins this

Yes that was really wicked from the organizers to double ticket prices. I would be extremely pissed of if I had bought one of these overpriced tickets and got no matches to see at all.

Today's daytime gaming session was definitively canceled by the ATP and WTA supervisors. It will be recovered tomorrow, Thursday 16 May, starting at 10.00 and will include two meetings on the Central and two on the Grand Stand.Ticket holders valid for Wednesday will be able to access the system in the areas indicated in them.

Anyone who fails to use the current access ticket tomorrow will be able to request a refund in a manner that will be subsequently communicated.

Tomorrow's game session on May 16th will start at 1:00 pm and only after this time will ticket holders valid for that day be able to enter the Foro Italico. The holders of tickets for the Central and for the Grand Stand can therefore access these fields only from the third

Roofs to cover 2 main courts so atleast the big players' matches can continue....
I'm sure halle makes way less profit than rome

Build a roof to make sure this s**t doesn't happen again,
If the holy grail of tennis, Wimbledon can change, why not rome???
Come to think of it none of the Masters tournaments have roofs not even IW (Paris is an indoor event). The only tournaments I can think of that do have them other than the Slams are the 2 German events: Hamburg and Halle.

Madrid has a retractable roof.
 
I don't get it. Djokovic was supposed to be the last one who plays today. So shouldn't by logic his match be moved for tomorrow?

You can't expect organisers to displace every other match slot if one of them suffers at the hands of nature, do you? It's best if the washed out matches today be played tomorrow while the ones that are on the schedule should be kept that way.

Well, we know one thing for sure; the 'big 3' will be hugely pissed off at having to extend themselves for a couple of days. And, by the way, don't the organizers have access to the weather channel? Did they forget to check?

"The ATP and WTA Supervisors have cancelled Wednesday’s day session at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia. Matches scheduled for today will now take place tomorrow (Thursday May 16) and the day session will be split into two parts. Ticket holders for Wednesday will be able to access the grounds to watch the first two matches on Centre Court and Grandstand (starting at 10am) while those members of the public with tickets for Thursday will be able to watch the matches scheduled from 1pm on Centre Court and Grandstand.

Wednesday ticket holders who are unable to use their tickets tomorrow will be able to ask for a refund. The procedure for securing a refund will be communicated to them at a later date."
 
If a few matches can be played today then by logic it should be the matches which were scheduled to be played earlier.
I don't think the players would think so, how is it good preparation to hang around all day to perhaps play a match you were due to play at 12 in the morning, from live scores it appeared they were cancelling the matches as the day wore on allowing players to leave the venue and relax.

I believe Shanghai is open stadium that has a retractable roof, even though it's considered "indoors".

craziest schedule I’ve ever seen, Big 3 could all end up playing a Masters match on the second court

Who do you think will suffer more out of Big 3 ?

I feel that Shapo & Kohli is gonna be tough for Djoker. For Fed, it depends how handles Sousa.

Kohli and Cecchinato will be a big scrap, they'll be tired out when they get to Djoker. Shapo is not consistent enough on clay to challenge Novak. Coric will be tricky since he's well rested and it depends how quickly Fed can do the turnaround.

Rome, the hell?! Are you trying to destroy your favorites? Playing both 2R/3R on the same day gives high chances for upsets. Upsets are bad for the business so early in the tournament. Should've played 3R/QF on Friday instead. :mad:

I think you're probably right.
It's so damn exciting.
I already sent an email to take a day off tomorrow :giggle:

Also. LOL at them for charging 2x after Fedr confirms particaption and THEN gave him a 5.5hrs turnaround compared to Nadl's 8hrs, Djokr's 6hrs, and Thiem's 6hrs. Who's the ancient one? :eek:

Honestly I would not be surprised if Fed and Novak tank. They dont want/need to have the extra match practice before RG. Novak is in fine form and can peak during RG. Fed probably does not have the highest expectations. Rafa needs the matches to gain confidence

Djokovic will be fine, he will face in R3 an opponent who will also be playing his second match of the day. Nadal and Federer on the other hand will face opponents who are already qualified for 3R and who will be much fresher.
