Re: The ATP Conspiracy: Federer Djokovic To Play Second
From Tom Tebbutt, canadian journalist on site, in interview about the schedule:
Federer asked to play first...and Nadal wanted to play second to rest and practice more after his yesterday match. Fed had 2 days and him one.
But...USO said NO to both of them...
Why....because prime time on NBC tv wanted Federer and Djokovic on later in the afternoon because it will drag more viewers...
So, even against both players 1 & 2 request, TV broadcaster has prevailed.
That is the end of discussion about who gets to impose his priority.
