I can't have much sympathy for the DC guys when they only played a couple of matches over 3 days. Alex has played every single day since last Saturday. He played 8 singles matches, 2 doubles plus an exhibition match the night before his QF last week. I know that I'm sounding like a broken record but Alex went through a lot more than any of the DC players (anywhere) last week. Today was his first day off and it doesn't sound like he probably got much practice if the weather was that bad.

Smart of them to give Alex the night match

Re: Tuesday OP

Then that was even more reason to push Mardy/Alex to Wednesday... they all should've complained.

I mean they could've put Robby/Tommy on Tuesday, they were both in Houston for a while I think...And there are other 1st round matches they could've put out on Tuesday also. it just doesn't totally seem fair to the people that were coming in off other surfaces who didn't arrive til Sunday night to play on Tuesday. Actually, even the Houston Chronicle said that Andy, Mardy, and Thomas would all play on Wednesday. it just seems weird. So if that situation includes Alex, then I'll extend my statement to include him too but since he is playing Mardy it doesn't change it anyway lol

LOL...Thank you for including him though . You're so lucky for tomorrow night!! I'm sure their will be other good matches but my respect for Alex only grew last week so until he wins ( ) tomorrow I don't care about much else.

Re: Tuesday OP

I'm quite psyched.... don't know how many chances I'll get to see my current top two faves play right after the other Hopefully both Alex and Mardy play well.

Re: Tuesday OP

Tommy Haas was also on Davis Cup action last weekend in Germany, and he had a long trip to Houston... no way he should play on Tuesday!!

Re: Tuesday OP

oh yea...I forgot about that.... but anyway he's not playing! I don't think any of the people who didn't get in til sunday night should have to play Tuesday. that's all I'm saying

Plus with the rain yesterday, the players who didn't get in til Sunday apparently only got about an hour to practice!!
