Why does Nadal play always the evening?

This is becoming annoying for european (majority of his fans I guess) fans who want to see his matchs. In Canada and United States, he is always the last to play. 2/3 at Montreal and now 3/4 at Cincinnati while Federer, Murray and Djokovic play all their matchs during the day.

The whole idea of evening/night session is retarted in my opinion, just put match after match. Don't freeze the tournament during 3 hours. But if this idea is adopted, at least change the player who plays the evening or the night. Don't put always the same player.

What is the problem? Federer, Djokovic and Murray do not pull TV ratings? Is there a reason?

Excitin players will always get night sessions regardless of what other fans in other countries think.

Exciting players will always get night sessions regardless of what other fans in other countries think. Their main priority is to entertain fans in the stadium not tv viewers.

Federer prefers playing during the day and probably has enough influence with those that do the scheduling to see it his way.

Re: Why does Nadal play always the evening?

Because Nadal is out of shape and needs the cool air to allow him to ran down every ball without getting overheated.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

That's what I read from a woman who talked to some TV people there.

I think Rafa is requesting night sessions.

Federer said he has made no requests during Cinci.

Because other players are more fit to play in the heat.

Re: Why does Nadal play always the evening?

I've noticed that aswell. Asuming it's the same as in Australia, they just put the most marketable match on at night because of the television ratings. I remember that Rafter complained about always being put in night matches at the Austrlian Open.

Oh god, such retarded responses in this thread. As if Rafa could ask them for a night match.

Re: Why does Nadal play always the evening?

As if he'd request to play Nole at night when he'd have a better shot at winning during the day...

Vamos Rafa

Cuz Murray's tooth is a little hard to sell in night session.
