Federer has been resting for hours now while Murray's match won't be until after the women's match right now and then after Nadal.

WOW!!!

not a big deal? do you know what time is it now in Madrid?
probably Murray will start around 10 PM.

It's still a very poor scheduling no matter how you see it.

whoever wins between Murray and Del Potro, they probably be in bed around 1 AM while Roger has been snoring for 3 hours already.

You can say it's not really of a big deal, but considering 3 big clay tournaments in a row now, its still a POOR SCHEDULING and Unfair.

Really not a big deal ... especially given Roger's confidence & mentality these days :cool:

Which women's match on the main court? The last of the women's QF is being played on AS court. MS is free and Nadal-Verdasco match will start on time.

the woman's matches are being played at the second court, the Manolo Santana is free :shrug:
no matter how many hours of rest Roger has over other players if he keeps brainfarting :shrug:

OK- its on a different court. But still Nadal will start at 8:00 then only Murray can start after Nadal.

Why could you just be logical and think that the schedule is really mess up and unfair.

It could have been top half, then bottom half of the draw, instead of doing almost 12 hours apart of schedule between two quarter final winners.

In Spain we work until late. Frequent hour to close the offices are 8:30 p.m. Tennis is a sport but is a show-busisness too, and in Spain people want to see good tennis matches at 10 p.m. The consumer is always right :rolleyes:. Worse thing is when matches are postponed to the next day because it's raining or there isn'n enough light...

Ok, but then Federer - Roddick should have been the third QF!

Welcome to professional tennis. Surely this is not the first time you have noticed a situation like this? All players at times have a sucky schedule. :shrug:

If thats the case, Nole should have taken the last match and switch with Murray Match.

I agree! The schedule is fair, because every player has to suck up a late match every now and then. This time it happened to "God" Murray! So in case Murray wins today vs. Delpo, the Murray fans/bandwagon are preparing a good excuse when Murray looses against Fed tomorrow! "Murray lost because he did not have enough time to rest!" I already see it coming!!! How pathetic!!! It's the British twisted media!

Best of 3 matches - it will not matter at all. Murray will still beat Federer tomorrow.

BIGMARAT
05-15-2009, 09:52 PM
no one is making excuse here. Stay on topic, the schedule sucks!!

now Delpo won first set in 1 hour and 50 mins. With this rate, they probably finished by 2 AM if its goes to third set.

Don't worry, if Murray loses in straight sets, he will have plenty of time to rest. ;)
