Re: 2 rounds in 1 day!

Yes, it has happened many times.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: 2 rounds in 1 day!

Nadal really has not been lucky in this tournament.

On the way over, he lost part of his luggage when he had to change airplanes, I believe in Frankfurt.
He had to wait two days for his first opponent.
Now two matches in one day (if it doesn't rain tomorrow) and his shoulder is - apparently - giving him a bit of trouble.

Good luck to both Coria and Nadal!


PS I'm sure it has already happened before.

Re: 2 rounds in 1 day!

Happened last year around this time, but I can't remember if it was Japan or Shanghai. I think it was Japan. Played two rounds on Thursday.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: 2 rounds in 1 day!

The worst I remembered was WTA in Scottsdale 2003. The rain was so bad that Sugiyama had to play her single semifinal in the morning, then final vs Clijster in the afternoon, afterward, teamed up with Clijster in the doubles final.

Even the ATP website says: "Rafael Nadal and Guillermo Coria are scheduled to play two rounds on Friday."

so i guess these two matches are already fixed by the ATP


but seriously, i think it's quite disrespectful from the ATP towards these two guys. since when are matches decided even before they have begun?

Re: 2 rounds in 1 day!

The weather anounces more rain for tomorrow... 60% possibilities of rain during Friday. If it'll treu and they couldn't play any match more, what will happen? The tournament will cancelled or the final will play on Monday?
