Tuesday's Wimbledon schedule??

I can't believe how they scheduled the matches today, scheduling women's 4th round matches before men's 3rd round matches. They must have known it was gonna rain again and due to this weird scheduling Djokovic and Kiefer might have to finish their match tomorrow. This means all 4th round matches in the bottom half of the schedule should be played on Thursday, which'll result in 4 straight days of best of 5 set matches for those players.

Is it that the really want to play the women's final on Saturday, cause otherwise I can't explain this? The women's side isn't in that much trouble since before today they still had 6 days to complete 4 best of 3 matches (if they moved the final to Sunday that is).

What do you guys think about this?

Yeah, I was thinking the same. Can't believe they put the women to play before the men. That's a joke.

I think they will end up pushing the mens SF to Saturday thus making it "Super Saturday" Wimbly style.

They don't like to put people on first after a continuation.

But that match was in one of the outer courts, if I'm not mistaken... the point is that the 3rd round matches should be the first to be played, before the women.

Why the heck is this?

All the other slams do this too and it annoys the heck out of me.

They did that yesterday to. Threw the women on, who can play forever before men's matches that needed to get done.

The rain wouldn't be that big of an issue if they were getting the second half of the men's draw out there. Nadal's match should have been their first priority today. It should be done by now.

The whole tournament should be on schedule before the women start again.

I understand, but this is just getting ridiculous. They needed to FINISH those third round matches before putting the women on. God only knows how long Keifer and Nole will take.

The women are all caught up right?

Men's matches need to be the first two the next few days. Though I'll be willing to bet center tomorrow is Federer and a women's match not something that needs to be caught up.

They should have just put the top women players on the outside courts.

Re: Tuesday's Wimbledon schedule??

There is a minimum 12hr time period from when an overnight suspended match can be restarted, so this is why they are not usually first on the OOP.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

but they start at 11:00 am so players have more than 12hrs rest from time when game was suspended. They don't finish at 11:00 pm...
