I think all tournaments schedule unfinished matches second.

That doesn't mean your bet will win.

The break didn't pay off for Henman did it?

It does. I win £450UKP whoever wins tomorrow now.

The only way henman can possibly win tomorrow is for Zabaleta's legs to both fall off. Even then, it would still be a close match to the end.

Yes, what was said is correct. Unfinished matches are subject to a scheduling guideline that they shouldn't be the first match on a court the following day.

LOL, I think they couldn't care less than thinking about your open bet and if your bet is settled two hours earlier or later. You don't think that's fair? Then don't bet

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Right, particularly when there was just over 12 hours between when play was suspended & the next day session was to begin. They would never schedule that tight a turnaround unless there was an extreme logistical reason: 1) meeting a finals deadline: such as Wimbledon 2004 having the 2nd day of the men's semifinals about 16 hours after the first day was suspended so the men's final could still take place on Sunday; or, 2) if the schedule was so backed up the winner would have to play another singles match later in the day.
