AO Schedule Day 2

Must be some good alcohol.
Chela-Hanescu on Court 6 but Haas on Court 7. Sense? And Dent-Fognini on Court 8 Awesome.

Re: AO Schedule Day 2

Berdych and Haas on a non-tv-court... Monaco-Gulbis is great, but Hanescu-Chela and Dent-Fognini take it to the top

Re: AO Schedule Day 2

My plan is to watch practices for the first hour or so until Pico's match starts, then watch a bit of tommy (which serves a double purpose because I can get a good seat for Ferrero's match which is straight after tommy's), and the whole of JC's match, and then perhaps Ferrer's depending on when JC's match finished. Very excited about tomorrow

Re: AO Schedule Day 2

Looks like Kolya has gone up in status ..in Court 2. In the last few years the
Aust Open is the worst offender ...always shoving him in small obsure courts.

Re: AO Schedule Day 2

There are no postponed matches from today on there, how long can they still play there?

Re: AO Schedule Day 2

Concerning the scheduling, they don't seem to put the best potential matchups on the bigger courts, but instead the higher profile player. Doesn't matter if a highly ranked player is playing someone nobody has ever heard of, they'll get a good court.

Are you serious? Take a look at the first postings =)

I think a tv court is a good court.. and a non-tv court is a bad court.. very simple..!

yeah thats fair enough. I guess coz I go every year I don't think about televised courts. I was more referring to the large arenas compared to the outside courts. Never mind me

Re: AO Schedule Day 2

Everything ok now.. Haas on Showcourt Three!

Nevertheless they let Berdych play on Number Seven, while mugs like Dent-Fognini get a tv-court..

Anyway.. most important we can Hasi

Re: AO Schedule Day 2

Dent's dad is a former Australian player, Taylor may have a lot of support down under hence a televised court.

Here's hoping the weather improves. It was wild out there today. Glad I had Laver tickets, although the tennis was a snorefest for the most part.

Re: AO Schedule Day 2

So which courts have a roof?Nice job of filling out Rod Laver with useless domestic wta players,while some of the bigger names in mans game will play on a parking lot.

Well, sir, it's this rug I have. It really tied the room together.

Rod Laver and HiSense both have a roof as far as I know.
