AO-first day schedule

Ok.The schedule for first day is out http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/...ule/index.html

Surprised to see that Verdasco-Tomic is not the night session match.Federer will play against a qualifier in the evening while Nadal will play against another qualifier last match on Hisense.

Re: AO-first day schedule

Well Tomic was always going to be on RLA & maybe they didn't want to add the pressure of a night match. That leaves either Federer or Nadal for the night match & I suspect they take player preferences into account (the tournament director was saying they look at requests etc.) - Nadal's said he prefer playing in the heat & the sun while Fed clearly thrives in night matches (great at the US Open...) so they probably prefer those options than the other way around....

Re: AO-first day schedule

Tomic Verdasco should have been the night match.

Re: AO-first day schedule

Agreed with others that Tomic/Verdasco should've been the night match.

You have to imagine Channel 7 (host broadcaster) would've asked for it to be the night match with maximum audience but I'm thinking Tomic requested it to be during the day as I think that gives him the better chance.

Nadal on Hisense is a head scratcher, Rafa and Federer both should've been on RLA with Tomic on at night.

Re: AO-first day schedule

Have I missed something? Did people really think Haas, against an unseeded opponent no less, would really be on a showcourt?? I like Haas, but cmon...

Was expecting RLA to be honest.

Re: AO-first day schedule

Tomic has complained before about night matches taking him beyond his bedtime, so that could explain his placement.

Don't need cameras if you're in the crowd
