Stop a country because 6 people died in a train accident?

I'm sorry, that's unfortunate, but a lot more than 6 people die on car accidents every day, so should we stop every country every day?

I don't see how stopping a tennis tournament honors people who died in a train accident. I don't see any connection...

PORTUGUESE ARMADA!!!

We're a country of somewhat more than 4 million people and not exactly the size of Russia. Things like that don't happen often, let alone daily. Besides, not everything stops working, it's more a sign of respect for the victims. Obviously, they assessed they can organize the tournament well regardless and the off day presumably gives an opportunity to potential spectators that will attend the memorials to come another day.

Not the best, but at least the players can have a big night and sleep in.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
