Maybe Fed is still tired from his exploits in Toronto and Cincy and wanted the extra few days off.

Mirkaland, did it occur to you that perhaps Roger asked for it? At the French he requested a late start.

If none of that is true, then I agree with you that even though they need to make a lot of room to showcase Agassi and all other US stars, this is poor form and disrespect for the defending champ.

Lindsay Davenport asked for a Tuesday start and was refused. I highly doubt Roger would ask for a Wednesday start considering he's been in NYC for over a week now. Last year they stuck him on court right at 11am when no one was even there. I wouldn't be surprised if he's the last R1 match to be played. And if no matches get played tomorrow will they even fit everything in on Wednesday?

Hmm, I never knew players could request days to play.

But I'm going to the Open on Thursday and if Fed plays Wednesday there's no way I could see him playing..

I suppose it is possible but there doesn't seem to be any logical reason for him not wanting to start until Wednesday, esentially playing 7 matches in 12 days. The French didn't honor his request so why would the USTA? Especially when Davenport asked for a Tuesday start and they wouldn't give her one.

TBH I don't agree with the first round being spread over 3 days anyway. But Fed being Fed, I'm sure he'll find a way to win.

With all due respect to Ms. Davenport, I don't think she pulls as many spectators (even US) as Roger Federer does. They will accede to his wishes, especially if it suits their own ideas about when he will bring in the most people, before they might to hers.

Sorry, but I think it's a lack of respect. The whole scheduling R1 over three days is :retard: anyway.
