Question Question...

Anyone knows why they changed the mens scheduling? I mean, we ALWAYS have first round matches on Monday and Tuesday only, why did they decide to put them on Wednesday too?

Im not sure if its good or bad, first I would like to find the reasons.
Thanks

US always do this
1st rd Mon/Tues/wed
2nd rd Thu/Fri

and look who they gave an big advantage to

Blake played him today and now he gets two days off so does Nikolay
other two matches in his section plays tomorrow.

Agassi as well

only fully completed 1/8 are the Yevgeny and Agassi sections of draw
others are half done.

that's stupid that they put the singles over 3 days

Séb Grosjean ; Arnaud Clément ; Guillermo Coria; Marcos Baghdatis; Jo Jo Tsonga
Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick are arrogant pigs

I'm sure Chela and Srichaphan aren't complaining too much right now. The others, esp Sampras, well... Haas with his arm might have welcomed the rest, but i'm not sure crowding in too many matches together is such a great thing, provided any of the day 3 men advance far into the draw.
