Re: 1st round match: Fed on Rod Laver Arena and Nadal on Hisense?
Both Rod Laver and Hisense arenas have same surface so it's quite the same which court they are playing. Rod Laver Arena has more seats and Roger attracts more spectators, so AO organizers are wise and have Roger at Rod Laver Arena. Despite higher ranking, Rafa doesn't attract spectators as much so he'll play at Hisense. More important question than why Rafa plays at Hisense is why Roger attracts spectators more?
