Does the winner of this match have to play tomorrow too?

edit: It looks like no, so it's not so bad. Though the scheduling for this tournament is pretty weird. All the staggered rounds towards the end is just stupid.

Problem is, this delay in getting the macth started has probably resulted in him eating while waiting for the match to start. I estimate he has probably eaten a couple dozen krispy kreme doughnuts, a few Big Macs, 6-7 large milk shakes, and a few bags of Frito Lays Potato Chips (with the french onion dip).

<<< keep in mind this is the appetitizer>>

LOL. Thanks for the laugh, drak.

they just had to squeeze that womens match in tonight :shock:

i hate to say it but that's not exatly an accurate description according to the order of play published last night:

Wednesday, March 18, Order of Play

STADIUM 1 start 11:00 am
[4] V Zvonareva (RUS) vs [9] C Wozniacki (DEN) - WTA
Not Before 1:00 PM
[17] F Gonzalez (CHI) vs [2] R Federer (SUI) - ATP
[3] N Djokovic (SRB) vs [16] S Wawrinka (SUI) - ATP
[12] D Ferrer (ESP) vs [7] A Roddick (USA) - ATP
Not Before 7:30 PM
[1] D Safina (RUS) vs [8] V Azarenka (BLR) - WTA
Not Before 9:00 PM
[1] R Nadal (ESP) vs [14] D Nalbandian (ARG) - ATP

I assume that everyone scheduled for stadium 1 is there because they want to be, in particular because of the challenge review.

As I said in the other thread, the men's matches went long. Not the women's. The Djokovic match alone took two and half hours and that one was a straight set victory. The other two took three sets. It was silly of them to schedule three men's matches in six and half hours. They should have put one of them on another court.

Yesterday the women played last. Why couldn't they do the same thing today?

Could it be because the women are in QF and the men are not ...... because the women started playing a week before the men did?

only a curmudgeon or a woman-hater would
begrudge the top women 2 games out of 6
in stadium 1 ........................... riiiiiiiiiiight?

I don't know what is more boring

a)this match

Aaaw, Love Game, in this case, you'll have to get used to disappointment as this place is filled with curmudgeons. :p

It's not the women's fault of course, it's the organizers,they really don't care about the players. They could easily have moved one of these matches to tomorrow.

*snicker* :)

I still don't get why IW brags so much about being the second biggest tennis stadium after our dear Flushing Meadows but can't be bothered to spring for Hawkeye on Courts 1 and 2.

now that i have to agree w/you on.

might have something to do with the new multinational corporation sponsorship not wanting to spend the money.

Whatever happened to Gasquet/Wawrinka vs Gonzalez/Robredo? It was supposed to be played after Isner/Del Potro on stadium 2.

Nadal/Nalbandian should be a good one, I can't see Nalby winning here even though I am cheering for him.

As if I needed another reason to dislike Safina. Here she is doing everything she can to drag the match on, thus making my life miserable.

The good news for the winner of this match is that he has a day off.I doubt they would move the match so the winner does get some rest till his next match

PS how has no one commented on nadal's amazing interview:

Q. What do you have to do to get past David Nalbandian? You haven't played him for a while, but you've had problems with him each time.
RAFAEL NADAL: More than problems. 6 2, 6 1 and 6 4, 6 0 is more than problems. (Laughter).

his english seems to have improved recently, really love his interviews

voted nadal in 2; these aren't the same rafa + nalby as 1.5 years ago..

I know from an inside source that Nalb will feast on roast lamb during the changeovers, as well as enjoying chocolate milkshakes and various other assorted candies.
