Why doesn't Nadal play against Youzhny on Wednesday?

It was obvious that today final set against Soderling wouldn't last long, so why organisers didn't decide to put Nadal's match into schedule? Why is there no match of Bjorkman vs. Berdych or Davydenko vs. Baghdatis? It is a very poor strategy as weather forecast for Wednesday was good and Saturday is supposed to be a gloomy day with heavy rains.

Re: Why doesn't Nadal play against Youzhny on Wednesday?

I was thinking the same.

The reason is because Wimbledon organisers are crap and have no idea how to run this event especially with all these rain delays.

Re: Why doesn't Nadal play against Youzhny on Wednesday?

Funny isn't it ? The weather is good for once, but the organizers decided to freeze all the 4th matches from the bottom half.
The players are left playing with their thumbs or yawning(in Kolya's case).

Players who make me...
:Federer - Davydenko - FitDave - Cilic
:Safin - Monfils - Non-Slam Federer.
:Nadal - Roddick - Murray

Forecast today was not good at all...and I'm sure Nadal is happy to finally get some rest and not have to hang around waiting for the next match.
Forecast for Thursday and Friday is good so why worry about Saturday??

It could've been 28-26 for all we know

Here's what the tournament referee said on this:
Quote:
Jarrett said contingency plans such as making players play two matches in a day is not desirable. “There is a natural elation when a player wins and they need to come down to build up for the next match,” he said.

I'm allergic to morons.

Re: Why doesn't Nadal play against Youzhny on Wednesday?

They don't like to require players to play more than one singles match in a day, and look ahead to give players in the same part of the draw a similar amount of rest. That's why there's no bottom half fourth round matches today.

Assuming Gasquet/Tsonga finishes today, I would think they will play top half quarters and bottom half fourth rounds tomorrow.

Re: Why doesn't Nadal play against Youzhny on Wednesday?

So... we're behind schedule and we barely have any matches today? What will they do if they finish the singles at 6?

Look like idiots?

I was wondering the same thing about these two matches, they could easily have stuck them in the schedule today and got them out of the way.

Re: Why doesn't Nadal play against Youzhny on Wednesday?

Bah, I take that back. We might be finished at 3 or 4 today with the way Gasquet-Tsonga is going.

Coo-coo, Wimbledon organizers.

Coo-coo.

And what about Djokovic/Kiefer seeing as they knew they'd have to play minimum of 2 sets today?
