Monfils/Ferrer on Chatrier, Federer on Lenglen???

I realize Monfils is French but they must really like him to give him top billing over Federer.

Federer def. Sampras, Wimbledon 2001 | Davydenko def. Haas, U.S. Open 2006
Schalken def. Gonzalez, U.S. Open 2002 | Agassi def. Roddick, Cincinnati 2004

Melzer def. Djokovic, Roland Garros 2010 | Sargsian def. Mathieu, U.S. Open 2004
Nalbandian def. Safin, Madrid 2006 | Soderling def. Nadal, Roland Garros 2009
Federer def. Tipsarevic, Australian Open 2008 | Gaudio def. Coria, Roland Garros 2004
Djokovic def. Stepanek, U.S. Open 2007 | Murray def. Gasquet, Wimbledon 2008

Any french players would have gotten Chatrier over Federer or Nadal at this stage of the tournament, unfotunetly. The really moronic thing was to have them play at the same time... Not a big surprise though considering how stupid their scheduling has been so far.

I don`t understand why the organisers don`t schedule both quarterfinals on same court one after each other.
Instead of starting with a stupid women`s match at 2pm they could have started 2 or 3 hours later.

Both quarterfinals should be on Centre Court

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks

I'm pretty sure Federer prefers Lenglen anyway.

Re: Monfils/Ferrer on Chatrier, Federer on Lenglen???

The point is TV audience should be able to watch both quarterfinals.No one cares on TV who is playing on center court or SL but they should make a proper schedule that the matches don`t intersect.Like put a women`s match on one court and men`s on the other court same time or start the day earlier

That's because Monfils is the new number 1, everyone knows it. He's going to storm through the rest of this tournement and crush everyone! Gael ftw!

And this is fucked up. A couple days ago Eurosport was showing pathetic match between Nadal and Verdasco instead of definitely more attractive match between Almagro and Chardy on SL. I hate this politics to show all the time the best 2 players in the world no matter how weak is their opponent
