Stupid Decisions Grand Slam Organizers Make

I find super saturday to be one of the stupidest moves ever by a Grand Slam organizer. Not having a limit to games played in the 5th set in other slams (which leads to Isner Mahut matches) is pretty bad too. Not providing enough protections for players at French or having lights there for night sessions is pretty stupid too. How about you? Do you like Super Saturday? What don't you like about slams?

Yes, it's incredibly bad and makes luck of the draw even more important than it need be. The final has already been ruined by this awful decision.

I mean US people know that they are not going to sacrifice high school softball for tennis on Fridays, so they pack everything on saturday and hope people can handle tennis when there is football on TV later. I mean do these people hate tennis so much. Why not give players rest? Isn't women's final for Saturday not enough?

I agree that it's a stupid decision. Not giving the players enough rest can actually be dangerous and they can pick up injuries more easily that way.

I think a women's final would be enough today..

Naah. It's not about Federer or Nadal or Fedal. I have always been against Saturday matches for men. Unless they start like 6 AM, someone gets screwed. Besides, the quality of final will be much lower if these matches go long. Usually they don't, if you look back. But when they do, someone's dead tired.

Re: Stupid Decisions Grand Slam Organizers Make

The final is RUINED!
give the trophy to lucky boy Nadal already!
But by winning without peril,no glory in triomph for nadal, too bad for the spanish too

fed vs Djoko should have play first regarding their raking and level

I suspect like Guy Forget that the us open organisation did everything to put nadal in final. Cheaters!

Nah. That's not fair to Nadal. It's been like that for a while now. I think we need to change it for next year though. No?

Not in the last couple of years anyway. In -09, it had the potential to ruin the final but didn't because both semis were 3-setters so it didn't really matter. In -08, the semis were played on friday, though Murray's semi was interrupted due to bad weather and had to be finished on saturday, but he only had to play 1/½ sets so no big deal.

Re: Stupid Decisions Grand Slam Organizers Make

I agree that the Saturday matches are stupid, but saying that the final is ruined is just as dumb. These guys have had a very easy draw and little court time during this tourney.

Nadal was handed the trophy at the french and wimbledon too, that's not something to brag about!

Lol, did Forget actually say that or is it a figment of your imagination?

I think that year Murray was dead tired after Nadal match. A day of rest would have helped him physically but mentally he needs a lot of help. It's not just about this year. I just don't see the point of having saturday semis. Why? I mean why not squeeze earlier rounds a bit and give people 1 or even 2 days rest. Why not have the best final possible. No?

A 3h Fed - Nole match is like a 4h Rafa - Nole match.
