Does anyone have an insight as to how the semifinals will be scheduled? I assume the start time will be 14:00 as it has been wednesday and thursday. But who will play first? Fed-Monfils or Djoko-Nadal? Is there any way to know this?
Thank you.

1st match should be Nadal-Djokovic (they played their QF's first).

P.S Should and would - different things ... They switched women SF's (Safina-Kuznetsova first althought Ivanovic and Jankovic played their QF's first) so nothing is certain.

They will start at 1 pm, not 2 pm. As for who's playing first - wait until tonight and you'll see.

Nadal - Djokovic at 13:45, followed by Federer - Monfils.

According to local press.

This tournament is being scheduled by idiots. Simultaneous QF matches, and all important matches heppenning when everybody is at work. This is my favourute event, and still haven't been able to see a full match, just a few sets here and there.

I expect that Nadal-Djoko match will be the first not because they played one day earlier (as it was noticed already, for women they did the other way around which is a real slap into the face of Russian girls :eek:) but because of Monfils (and that is fair).

Nadal-Nole should be first so that Fed can tank his match if Nadal destroys Nole. :devil:
