Which SF first on Friday?

Normally it should be Nole-Fed, but because this is the more interesting semifinal maybe they will put first Rafa with Andy. What do you think? Anybody heard sth?

CAREER GRAND SLAM: 1 AO, 10 RG, 2 WIM, 2 US
TOTAL TOURNAMENTS WON: 73 (53 CLAY), (30 MASTERS 1000)

GOAT: PETE SAMPRAS

I think Nole-Fed gets the later billing.

Re: Which SF first on Friday?

The rule at RG is the half which started first gets first match unlike USO. But I see in the women's draw they didn't keep this rule as tomorrow SHA is first.

Re: Which SF first on Friday?

I reckon Nole might request to go first since he hasn't played in so long and wouldn't want to prolong the wait, but who knows.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Nole Fed should be first since their half started first.

Well if NBC has any say Djoker/Fed will be 2nd SF. Not sure how much pull they have when no American is playing.

- well yes, I think it would be reasonable to have Djoko-Fed play first.

I hate NBC coverage. Sometimes they won't even show the first match at all. They would love if Fed goes first then they show the whole match tape delay and ignore the live Rafa match. NBC ruins watching live tennis for Americans.

Re: Which SF first on Friday?

Hopefully Nadal-Murray, so that when NBC kicks on, I can watch the Fed-Nole showdown in its entirety.

I would not put it past NBC to show one of them on tape delay while the other is going on live, fucking clowns.

Just live tennis, NBC, please, that is all I ask.

Re: Which SF first on Friday?

The way I see it is Nadal Murray play first. Nadal wins 6-2 6-3 6-4. Then Federer-Djokovic come on, They play an epic five setter. Fed wins 5-7 6-1 5-7 6-2 7-5 after saving two match points on serve at 4-5. Then they bump up the final to Saturday. only for rain to delay it until Sunday. Small rain delay on Sunday in the 2nd set Fed serving 4-6 4-4 15-30. Fed takes the set. at 5-4 15-30 Nadal pulls stunning aces and service winners to close out the set. Then he runs away with the fourth 6-2. Final score Nadal def Federer 6-4 5-7 6-4 6-2. Only possible way I see the tournament going down.
