Why did they not put Djokovic on the Centre Court?

Was obvious Nadal-Muller would go long, so why no Djokovic on Centre Court? All the matches were over quickly.

Now Djokovic have to play potentially 4 best of 5 matches in 6 days.

If I was a Djokovic fan, I'd be mega pissed off. I have a feeling Wimbledon's reasons are for money or tickets or some other bullshit, everything other than competitive fairness

Actually, it wasn't obvious at all. RAFA was the bookies' favorite to win in three sets.

Why should they? It's not the first case something like this happens and won't be the last. Doesn't deserve any preferential treatment, play when it's your turn like scheduled.

This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

I recall last year Djokovic had to play a load of matches at RG because shitty RG lacks a roof

The crowd had seen King Roger and Grassray, why watch No4e when you could have a nice glass of Pimms instead?

Right decision by Wimbledon.

Re: Why did they not put Djokovic on the Centre Court?

I'm guessing they didn't want CC to hold another match in order to prevent the grass from further deterioration.

Sucks for Novak though.

Re: Why did they not put Djokovic on the Centre Court?

Yeah, as I said in another thread it's an absolute joke that they never moved this to CC. Completely defeats the whole purpose of having a roof in the first place.

Re: Why did they not put Djokovic on the Centre Court?

I remember that Wawrinka had to play for 3 days in a row here in 2014. He ran out of gas at the end of the 2nd set of his QF against Federer.

It shouldn't be preferential treatment, it's common sense to do that whenever a situation like this happens.

Stupid organizers, you want a "Super Monday"? Be ready to do what it takes you useless bunch of snobs.

He is playing Mannarino and bendover boy Berdych in his next two matches. Both matches will be relatively quick and easy for him. Not a big deal.

Re: Why did they not put Djokovic on the Centre Court?

Probably something to do with original schedule and ticket holders. Those that wanted to see Djokovic-Mannarino would have bought C1 tickets, those at CC would not have neccessarily expected to see another match after Federer/Dimitrov. I'm not defending the decision at all just trying to through out reasons why.
