Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

If Nieminen loses to this mug, he should consider retirement.

Due to persistent rain, the men's final is tomorrow -- Sunday at 10am. Epic fucking fail.

is the twitter the only source for this info since there is nothing on the ATP site nor on the official tournament site?

And Nieminen is scheduled to play AO Rnd1 vs Nalbandian on Monday at 7PM.

And TV broadcasters would've been happy had the final not been at the planned time, wouldn't they?

Are they happy now as there is nothing to broadcast and if the final is not played they won't have anything to broadcast anyway. This stupid schedule just puts the players involved in this final at disadvantage for AO.

Re: WWW Sydney final: Benneteau vs. Nieminen?

Both of them are like clown Monfils, unlucky in finals...but I think Nieminen will win, in 2009 Nalby had some troubles to beat him in final, he's a very tough opponent who never gives up, he's mentally much stronger than Bennet. If Nieminen wins, he could pull out of AO 'cause his 1rst match is scheduled on Monday (night session) ???? It's only a possibility of course, he can decide to play AO

Of course TV bradcasters aren't now happy, but that is easy to say afterwards. If they had started earlier than planned and there hadn't been that rain, broadcasters would've been angry. So, in that sense starting earlier was no option. But considering the risk of match being moved to the following day and AO starting Monday, it'd be wiser to have the finals earlier meaning less risk for final date change.

Would be quite sad if neither of em got title, which doesn't even seem all that unlikely right now...

They could have just rerun the match from early that day Instead they had to play a rerun of some other match or show some rain delay montage, so it probably would have made them happier if the final was played on the correct day.

They don't have weather forecasts in Australia? It seems obvious if there is rain on the forecast on the final day of your open air tournament, you want to get your matches on early before the rain washes things out.
