Re: What do you think "Super Saturday" or "Stupid Saturday"?

TO COMPARE THE SCHEDULE WITH THE WOMAN TENNIS IS RIDICULOUS
THEY PLAY BEST OF 3.

they have no roof and just 20 hours between semi and final
for themselves change it



The best player spin and speed together

I think of it as 'Utterly retarded Saturday'.

It's good for the game.

Europeans will never understand an American perspective on tennis.

Re: What do you think "Super Saturday" or "Stupid Saturday"?

Greg Rusedski just added his two cents on UK's Sky Sports coverage, saying that he understands that it's good for American television to have Super Saturday but it's out of line with the other slams and it's bad for the players and they should work with the USTA in going forward to put an end to the ridiculous scheduling.

I support Andy Murray!

These are sensible criticisms. He has understood Fumus' point and gone about understanding that the USTA's and American Television Networks way is utter panda plop, and that the glorious stink and stains of said ploppage must be removed in a collaborative process.

I wonder what the next few days hold...

Re: What do you think "Super Saturday" or "Stupid Saturday"?

it's too easy when you have a scheduling advantage. All the losers just want to win no matter how they get there but the excitement is in getting there not actually winning it.

Re: What do you think "Super Saturday" or "Stupid Saturday"?

It's still stupid but will never change as TV dominates the US Open coverage.

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
