Upper half starts on Sunday

Not sure if this news deserves a thread, but as many always ask this here is the info:

Djokovic's half will be up first. At least Melzer twittered:

Jürgen Melzer ‏@jojomelzer

playing on sunday vs @MichaelBerrer ... Great competitor...looking forward

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4

Of course it deserves a thread.

No interesting matches then.

Re: Upper half starts on Sunday

Don't think Nole or Roger will want to play Sunday so may be Tsonga in the Sunday line up?

Re: Upper half starts on Sunday

like previous 2 years, Tsonga's half starts first.

Last 2 years, Tsonga played on sunday.

rest of this half will finish monday.

second half will play tuesday

on weather forecast, wednesday and friday are expected to be bad, then it may not be so good to be in this half starting first

According to official RG twitter DelPo, Tsonga, Verdasco and Roddick will headline the men's lineup.

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4

Re: Upper half starts on Sunday

Don`t expect any of the top guys to play Sunday,maybe some French guys get on the center but certainly no Federer or Djokovic

If this is the case, it won't be fair for Baker who is playing a demanding final in Nice on Saturday.

Federer, Raonic, Tsonga, Monfils, DelPo ...

Fabio will be playing on Sunday. Isn't that really all that matters? I think so.

Berdych, Troicki and Stepanek as well

in the past, I remember the same happened to Gasquet who played Murray on monday after playing a tough final against Verdasco on saturday

The weather looks pretty ok the whole first week so far, but the temperatures will decrease a bit.

Re: Upper half starts on Sunday

The weather forecast seems to have improved massively for the 1st week from what I saw last week. I hope the same happens for week 2 as I hate damp conditions at RG.

Re: Upper half starts on Sunday

I don't see the weather changing, at least for the first week. Then again who knows...

Damn, then my tickets are for 2nd round on Nadal's side. And no show courts. I'll end up watching stuff like Benneteau x Soeda :/

TT Palmarès

Titles: Astana 2 CH '11, Challenger Tour Finals '11, Kuala Lumpur '12 (w/Dudisela75), Bressuire Futures '13 (w/Marita)

Finals: Fürth CH '11, Orleans CH '11, Petange CH '12, TT Euro '12 (w/Vilnietè)

SF: Australian Open '12, Memphis '12
