So which semifinal will be the first one on Friday?

Any news? I am attending the opening match of EURO 2012 and for sure I will miss the second semi. I would like ofcourse Rafa and Ferru to play first, but then Nole and Fed could be screwed if the match takes 5 hours...


RAFAEL NADAL
CAREER GRAND SLAM: 1 AO, 9 RG, 2 WIM, 2 US
TOTAL TOURNAMENTS WON: 69 (49 CLAY), (28 MASTERS 1000)

JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO
HAAS, MONFILS, THIEM, DIMITROV,
KUBOT, JANOWICZ, PRZYSIĘŻNY, MAJCHRZAK

GOAT: PETE SAMPRAS

Re: So which semifinal will be the first one on Friday?

I heard it would be Rafa-Ferrer. That's certainly how it went last year, with the earlier played QFists being second on. Personally I think it should be the other way around but what can you do..

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

It should be Federer-Djokovic.

Nadal vs Ferrer no doubt. Hope Nole wins in 3 because of this.

1. Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

2. Murray wins Olympic Gold for the second time after Djokovic is blue shelled by Del Potro. Thanks Del Potro!

3. Murray wins US Open 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by [pending]. Thanks [pending]!

NBC has no say in Roland Garros.

But the most marketable or anticipated match is usually second.

Of course they will also have an idiotic starting time, like 14.00 or 15.00

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Federer-Djokovic is the premier match everyone will be wanting to see. Of course it's going to be second.

I suppose they think nadal-ferrer will be a 3-setter, and fedole will be a 4-5 setter plus entertainment terms and TV coverage. They could be wrong though, ferrer could play well and challange nadal, and fedole could be a damp squid.

Go Andy!

Nadal matches lack drama. I hope Fed and Joker play second.

As if it matters for Rafilove. Two straight five-setters at AO anyone?

First match starts at 13h15

Nadal is probably going to need 2h30 to finish off Ferrer, so the Federer-Djokovic should start at 16h15 and people coming back from work will be able to catch the middle or the end of the match.

Where did you see it ? Usually it starts at 14:00 which is too late. The SF in the girls' draw will start at 14:00 as well.
