The U.S. Open first round is split over three days. So even if some of Rafa's half plays Monday, he might not necessarily play Monday.

It doesn't necessary mean you have an advantage starting first at US Open. If you start first then you will play your Super Saturday SF second. It is tough which one is better.

Re: US Open: Any ideas which half starts on Monday?

Night matches on center court, first week: featuring Mardy Fish, Andy Roddick, Venus Williams, Melanie Oudin, Maria Sharapova, and maybe, maybe, m...a..y..b..e if the organizers are kind enough, someone named Roger Federer along the way.

Take that bitches.

We all know it.

Re: US Open: Any ideas which half starts on Monday?

Am I right in thinking the #1 seed always plays the second semi on Super Saturday?

That would mean Federer would play first semi like he did in 2008 when he was #2 seed.

1 An American player asks to play first to get more rest (Agassi did one year)
2 CBS want a specific match on second
In 2008, Nadal's half played first throughout the week but was the second SF anyway.

Judio post above says that you're wrong. Seems like the half that starts on Monday will play their semifinal first... How did you comy Foxy with an idea that it is opposite? It is more logic that you play first on Super Saturday if you started your tournament earlier...

Re: US Open: Any ideas which half starts on Monday?

the whole USO is screwed up from the super saturday semis and final the very next day.scheduling is awful.
the circus trophy presentation.
