Scheduling question for the semis

Does anyone have an insight as to how the semifinals will be scheduled? I assume the start time will be 14:00 as it has been wednesday and thursday. But who will play first? Fed-Monfils or Djoko-Nadal? Is there any way to know this?
Thank you.

Re: Scheduling question for the semis

sorry i don't know, i guess we all have to wait for the schedule to be released tomorrow

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Thank you.
1st match should be Nadal-Djokovic (they played their QF's first).

P.S Should and would - different things ... They switched women SF's (Safina-Kuznetsova first althought Ivanovic and Jankovic played their QF's first) so nothing is certain.

They will start at 1 pm, not 2 pm. As for who's playing first - wait until tonight and you'll see.

Re: Scheduling question for the semis

Nadal - Djokovic at 13:45, followed by Federer - Monfils.

According to local press.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

Re: Scheduling question for the semis

This tournament is being scheduled by idiots. Simultaneous QF matches, and all important matches heppenning when everybody is at work. This is my favourute event, and still haven't been able to see a full match, just a few sets here and there.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.

Re: Scheduling question for the semis

I expect that Nadal-Djoko match will be the first not because they played one day earlier (as it was noticed already, for women they did the other way around which is a real slap into the face of Russian girls ) but because of Monfils (and that is fair).

Re: Scheduling question for the semis

Nadal-Nole should be first so that Fed can tank his match if Nadal destroys Nole.
