Del Potro vs Djokovic match moved to Lenglen

"Correm rumores em Roland Garros de que o encontro entre Novak Djokovic e Juan Martin del Potro não terá lugar esta sexta-feira. Apesar de ainda ser de dia, a luz natural é cada vez pior e já há quem diga que com as dificuldades de visão do tenista sérvio, é grande a pressão para que não entrem sequer em court... aguardemos para ver..."


Saw in a facebook profile of a portuguese journalist that it's in RG covering on facebook. Basically, it says that there is pressure made by the Djokovic staff, asking for the match not happen today, because of the Djokovic problems of vision, because it starts to get darker, in Paris.

It's only a rumour, IMO, but it's a reasonable possibility...

Can we wait until there is some confirmation please. Good chance that it won't start today, especially if Wawrinka manages to win the 4th set.

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".

Will they force it out on Lenglen if Richie can end his match soon?

I heard rumours that it might be changed to court 1, which would be horrible for spectators.

Re: There is rumors that the Nole - D-Pot match won't happen in this friday.

The article implies that the Fakervic family influenced RG to make the Djok/DelPo match not happen today. This is not beyond the realm of possibility, especially since it was supposed to rain today so the schedulers had to know the chance of Fakervic playing today were close to 0.

Pretty disgusting if it's true, looks like Fakervic has learned to cheat and bribe his way to titles from the Nadull family at the expense of the fans.

They will move it to Lenglen if Gasquet can finish the match now.

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".

Gasquet looks about ready to close out his match, why don't they move it to Lenglen and be done with it?
