Seriously scratching my head over that schedule. Are they completely nuts? Most tournaments would put the big match on as the night match, for domestic TV consumption and best tournament attendance figures.
The only thing I can think of is that they might be trying to satisfy a scheduling request from Sky/Eurosport(?)/other European TV for the first match to be early so that they can broadcast it live here.
