madrid QF sched- not fair

Federer has been resting for hours now while Murray's match won't be until after the women's match right now and then after Nadal.

WOW!!!

not a big deal? do you know what time is it now in Madrid?
probably Murray will start around 10 PM.

It's still a very poor scheduling no matter how you see it.

Re: madrid QF sched- not fair

whoever wins between Murray and Del Potro, they probably be in bed around 1 AM while Roger has been snoring for 3 hours already.

You can say it's not really of a big deal, but considering 3 big clay tournaments in a row now, its still a POOR SCHEDULING and Unfair.

Really not a big deal ... especially given Roger's confidence & mentality these days

WOW!!!
Which women's match on the main court? The last of the women's QF is being played on AS court. MS is free and Nadal-Verdasco match will start on time.

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better

Re: madrid QF sched- not fair

the woman's matches are being played at the second court, the Manolo Santana is free
no matter how many hours of rest Roger has over other players if he keeps brainfarting

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: madrid QF sched- not fair

OK- its on a different court. But still Nadal will start at 8:00 then only Murray can start after Nadal.

Why could you just be logical and think that the schedule is really mess up and unfair.

It could have been top half, then bottom half of the draw, instead of doing almost 12 hours apart of schedule between two quarter final winners.

Did you get that embarrassed when Gonzalez/Chardy started at 0.30 am in Rome?

WOW!!!
In Spain we work until late. Frequent hour to close the offices are 8:30 p.m. Tennis is a sport but is a show-busisness too, and in Spain people want to see good tennis matches at 10 p.m. The consumer is always right . Worse thing is when matches are postponed to the next day because it's raining or there isn'n enough light...
