So which semi will be scheduled first on Saturday? Nole vs Fed or Rafa vs Youzhny?

Nadal vs Youzhny as the first one would be much more fair, as both were all 2 weeks one day behind.
What's more, Federer with Djokovic sounds like a better match (two top class players). Normally I would expect the more interesting match to be the second one.
Thoughts?

You're looking for excuses already.

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".

Good to see Stupid Saturday getting the crap it deserves. Nothing will beat JCF's effort in 2003 though.

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".

Last year Federer played with Nole as the second ones, although they were in the half that started the tournament...

No. It won't be fair. Nadal Youzhny match is a 2 hour match max. Fed Djok can be 3 hours or more

Most propably Federer - Djokovic. Look at the women's side. The better match up with Venus and Clijsters is also scheduled second.

Yeah, I think Federer - Djokovic will go second. That's been the case I think for the past few years.

Re: So which semi will be scheduled first on Saturday? Nole vs Fed or Rafa vs Youzhny

Sadly, I can see the schedulers come to a similar conclusion. The only "fair" thing, however, would be having the matches played simultaneously, on the two main courts, so as not to give any player an unfair advantage, but we all know that's not gonna happen

It's going to rain Sunday anyway so it doesn't matter.

Federer-Djokovic will be second and will probably go at least 4 if not 5 close sets, so whoever wins will be nice and tired for Nadal in the final after his exhibition against Youzhny.

Football is one of the few areas of life where even if you're untutored, you can go to a ground and see George Best beat three men, and you can realise, 'I have seen genius.'
