Re: Qualifying Draw?

Sometime on Sunday (but you would never know it by looking at their lame website).

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: Qualifying Draw?

lol yeah i know...can't stand these bloody time differences. Indian Wells has just been shocking, like almost 24 hours behind. I get so confused when ppl are playing, and it's virtually impossible to watch livescores.

can't wait for them to be back in Europe where the time difference is not so bad.

Re: Qualifying Draw?

Re: Qualifying Draw?

Because there are so many changes to an entry list like this, they wait until the last minute. Also, if you think about qualifying draws for all the other tournaments (Challengers, and regular tour events) they have sign-in until 9 pm the night before, allowing the guys to get there and sign in.

My best guess is that it's to give guys playing challengers a better chance to be able to get there to be able to sign in and play....I mean the standard for normal Monday-starting ATP Tourneys that start qualies on Saturday is to have the qualie draw come out at 9pm local on friday night, the night before the play starts, so....

Re: Qualifying Draw?

Sunday afternoon in Florida is Monday morning in Australia. You can set up your own timezone page at www.timeanddate.com. This is what my old one looked like...
