They want to put less pressure on him to guarantee at least a showing on Thursday when the Queen arrives.

Isn't the Queen coming on Thursday? Murray will get his day with Her Majesty then, I guess. Still, odd decision.

It's a nice decision. If Rochus won the 4th set it would be fine, but if Nole won it they would be never able to finish today. So they guarentee that they can finish today.

Yeah, but if they were to meet in the semis, I'm fairly certain Murray would get most of the support.

I'm not sure what was behind today's decision, though.

Murray has played like an arse lately so he deserves to be on court 1. His match will be a sleeping pill so thats the main reason.

I was lucky enough to be at that one.. Roger probably got the bigger cheers at the start, but when Fed raced ahead in the third they were mainly trying to get behind Muzza.

We dont support him like we did henman as a nation, for sure.

I like the idea to put Fed and Murray on Court 1 for a match in a tournament

It's nearly the same price, and the ticket holders for No 1 (i think more from the queue) deserve to have a look at them.

Moreover Sampras, Henman,.. played a lot on No 1

and I am not even talking about Venus Williams

Certinfy
06-22-2010, 08:19 PM
Great scheduling in a way, I would assume Djokovic would be put on court 1 in his R3 match assuming he wins tomorrow, and I would assume Nadal will get a match on court 1 fairly soon.

The top seeds often rotate between the two show courts.
I was on No 1 today and was hoping to see Soderling.
Instead I got the very one sided Murray match, yes I know Soderling was one sided too but just wanted to see him play.
I think the decision was taken so he'd be on CC on Thursday when HM comes (and sits there wondering what the hell is going on.)
And what's wrong with putting seeds on outside courts, Court twelve has quite a few seats for ground pass holders and it's a nice court. Considering how tricky it is to get show court seats in the ballot if people are prepared to queue for entry then they're entitled to see something of quality.
The truth is first few days on show courts are usually one sided (Federer being the exception).

Mistake thats going to be rectified or do they honestly believe people are more interested in Venus or Arod than Murray. Yes they both have their appeal but this is the British number 1, a player with a great chance of winning wimbledon.

Any reason for this?

_Chaz
06-21-2011, 08:25 PM
The Americans have some influence on the schedule, that's also why a match like Bogomolov vs Young was on a showcourt and guys like Nalbandian, Melzer or Mayer (who even played a Brit) not.

Certinfy
06-21-2011, 08:25 PM
They usually put some of the top players on court 1. The reason being for tomorrow is that he's playing Kamke while Roddick is playing Hanescu which could be a great match.

Last year:
Nadal played his R4 and QF matches on Court 1.
Federer played his R2 match on Court 1.
Djokovic played his QF match on Court 1.
Murray played his R1 match on Court 1.

06-21-2011, 08:28 PM
Probably something to do with the American networks paying $$$ to have the Americans playing on CC with the roof to guarantee that the matches doesn't get rained off. Seems a strange one as surely keeping Murray on CC would help with the support plus it would avoid the match be rain delayed.

QF on Court 1 is nothing special, you know the QFs are always scheduled on one day and the top half starts first on both courts and the bottom half second. And Federer vs Berdych is more interesting than Djokovic vs Lu and Murray vs Tsonga was probably picked on Centre because he's the guy playing at home.

But this does make a big difference if it is washed out tomorrow and Nadal gets ahead with the scheduling over Murray. The player who will sell most tickets is Murray and the host broadcaster is BBC, who should surely be favouring Murray.

Roddick was on Court 1 already and he is probably the fifth most popular player in this tournament. They try and make it so the almost-top players get at least 1 early match on CC. Don't be surprised if Djokovic or Federer is bumped to Court 1 on Thursday in favor of Soderling/Hewitt. In fact, I'd be shocked if one of them wasn't.

True fact is they could schedule Murray on the CC also playing the 4th match or the 3rd between Nadal's and Roddick's because the court has a roof so there is no problem with darkness or rain but who knows what were they thinking at :shrug:

Complaints? Urrm. Nothing to complain about so far this year.. if I were picking at straws I'd have preferred it if they put another womens match instead of Venus Williams, but I guess she's a former champ etc, probably isn't even another contender for centre court.

If you're good enough, you should be able to win whichever court they put you on, so it's not a big deal which players go on which court. As long as Murray's on a televised court (of course he will be) I'm good with it.

Have some respect for these "washed up grannies" one of whom has more (S+D+MD) slam titles than either Federer and Nadal and the other who is still playing at age 40, which I doubt any of the current top guys will make it past 35.

Crazy Brits always trying to seem unbiased. Murray should be on the centre court every match even against the biggest loser/nobodies there are about on tour. For the very reason that he is British, and the only major British player around these days. Its not like the French where you can stick 1 of a number of French on centre court, or even the US can stick decent players like Isner, Fish or Querrey on there. GB only have Murray to look forward too.

Do you have something against court 1 ticketholders? Would it kill anybody to let them have one match where they can watch their hero play? Court 1 as you know is not a free court. Add Roddick is hugely popular in london and its not automatic that he advances these days. Could be his last match today. But rest assured if there is a heavy washout today Murray's match will move to center court even if it means an 8PM start.

Which actually shows how pathetic this sport ( WTA ) is. After Henin retired, there are only wannabes left + couple of grandmas who play only part time.
40 year old player wouldnt make into top100 in ATP and former star player, who is away 2 years wouldnt win mens slam, let alone 3! It doesnt show how good Krumm, Clijsters or Williamses are, it shows how poor is whole their tour if part time players and grandmas are beating rest of the field.

I was a court 1 ticketholder on Monday, but Murray is the biggest catch with Nadal on this half of the draw, so Murray should be on centre court for all those people camping over night, for all those people paying more money for centre court tickets and actually for Murray himself because there is a roof. It would give him the best chance possible to win the tournament.

it doesnt say to much about the atp when there are almost no youngster in the top 100 and then you have guys like hewitt and gonzalez who are also in their 30's and yet still come back with hardly any match play and routine the supposed future stars of the sport

my god it is :D

actually that's not the point at all. Nadal needed a year to get back from a 4 month injury. If he would have been injured a year he would never reach 4th round wimbledon, which williams will.

The point is, in every sport women are less appreciated then men just because it's a fact the level is a lot lower as in men sport. Nobody ever speaks about women cycling, football, basketball, ...

I think that is just the world. There are other things in which women are better then men but just not in sports.

That's just the facts. Nevertheless I think the ladies tournament brings something special to the grandslams and I wouldn't want only men playing on big courts

Hewitt, Haas, Fererro, GONZALEZ who was just back from injury, only played 7 matches all year, five of which came in challengers, no grass warm-ups and yet still beat one of the rising young players on tour. It's less about the quality, more about the experience. It's not like the ATP is overflowing with young talent in the top 100, most of the guys are 5+ year veterans.

This misusing of the roof at the Centre Court of Wimbledon is pathetic. They shouldn't use the roof when it's sunny and dry out there just because there's a chance of light rain in a few hours. Same thing happened in the Nadal-Sweeting match. They used the roof while all the other matches were played outdoors with no problem.
Use the roof when it's necessary, not because maybe some light rain will drop in the next hours for a few minutes. If it rains, cover the court in 10 minutes and the match will go on, it's not a big deal. Seriously if you care about tradition, make a sensible use of the roof. That's what really matters to see good outdoor matches and not wearing all white.

I agree, it's stupid.. the chance of rain today is minimal, and if it starts raining then it probably will only be light rain for a few minutes. I don't get why they need to close it when it's sunny?!?! close it only when it's necessary!

speaking of.. the commies on the Nalby match just said this about the roof on CC: "seems rather sunny for it to be closed"

Yeah it's more than just how long it takes to close the roof. I think most of the time is spent getting the correct temperature one the roof is closed. If it's too humid wouldn't the grass collect moisture?

06-23-2011, 12:37 PM
The chance of rain at this time was around 50/50 according to forecasts, seems perfectly sensible to just close the roof and not have a potential 40-minute delay for closing the roof and getting the airflow correct. Of course, sometimes it won't rain and you'll look silly, but that doesn't make it the wrong decision...

It's unfair, I mean come on with the women's seed they can seed anyone in order to make it fair so that Serena and Venus were both seeded but with the men's they don't, it's stupidly unfair because now Soderling is losing to Hewitt in R2 when we all know Hewitt should be a seed.

Not saying that the women's seeding is the right way of doing it, but I think it's unfair that the womens seedings are more 'fair' than the mens. Anyone agree?

Women need special seeding only for Serena and Venus who are part-timers but stronger on grass than the rest of the draw. It's much more complicated on the men's side with a whole bunch of hopeless grasscourters in the top-30, hence the need for an "objective" formula.

Again Brit media making a controversy over Venus & Serena playing on court 2. Yesterday Venus said on ESPN all top players should play on court 2. Considering mens tennis is more popular and the biggest draws are Fed & Nadal I can't see them playing on court 2 anytime soon. Seems to me having only 3 matches on CC and C1 is more about trying to keep the court from turning into clay than it is disrespecting the women.

EDIT: Here's what Serena said in her presser:

“They like to put us on Court 2, me and Venus, for whatever reason,” said Serena. “I haven’t figured it out yet. Maybe one day we’ll figure it out. But obviously they’re not gonna change. [The men’s defending champions] are never moved across. Actually, Venus and I have won more Wimbledons together than a lot of the players, or by ourselves in doubles even. Like I said, they’re not going to change, doesn’t look like.”

I get her point though. It doesn't matter if men's tennis is more popular or a bigger draw, if you have Federer, Venus and Djokovic on Centre, the people who come to see the men have already bought their tickets, so it's not like it's losing Wimbledon any money. Serena IS defending champion, and she and Venus have both won the title numerous times. Novak hasn't even made a Wimbledon final, yet he hasn't been put on Court 2.

Federer v Tsonga is easily the most interesting match of the round, and in terms of rankings (Well Tsonga's true rank which is like 7 or 8 in the world not the one when he is always injured) also the most closely matched one too. This could be a surprise result even. If anything Nadal for me and probably for the organizers too is the least interesting match, unless Nadal is injured seriously and has to retire, it will be a rotuine 3 set win for him. Fish has upped his game considerably in recent months, but I cant see him competing with Nadal.

If anyone thinks Murray should be shunted from Centre Court they are seriously insane.

Of course Murray should have been easily put on Court 1. It is a QF match against Lopez after all. It is not a final. Both Nadal and Fish are higher ranked than Murray and Lopez respectively. Moreover Rafa is 2 times champ and a defending champ. Also Murray will dispose of Lopez quicker than Nadal Fish. So it is stupid reasoning.

Do yourself a favour and go down to car park 10 by the Wimbledon tennis courts where there are more than a 1000 people camping out. I would say 85% if not more of them are camping over night just to see Murray. Now tell me he should be shunted to Court 1.

Well it's hard, they don't want Nadal and Federer on at the same time and they want Murray to be on 2nd due to British viewers.

The thing is if they put Tomic vs Djokovic on CC I'm pretty sure Nadal and Murray would have a lot of complaints given that it's Tomic and they're playing far superior players in Fish and Lopez, just wouldn't work. At least this way it's all quite simple and logically good.

The match will be moved to Centre if there's rain so all mens QF will be complated today. They shoudl have a roof over court 1 next year. You';d be able to complete more matches during the earlier rounds/

Yeah having a roof on one court for the first week is a little pointless, hopefully if C1 gets a roof it will also have floodlights which aren't attached to the roof as well.

Rafa on Court 1? :rolls: GTFO of here, you pompous british assholes :wavey:
Good on them, correct and expected court placements. Nadal is clearly 3rd priority here today. 3 matches won't be on centre, so he's on court 1. Simples.

Do yourself a favour and go down to car park 10 by the Wimbledon tennis courts where there are more than a 1000 people camping out. I would say 85% if not more of them are camping over night just to see Murray. Now tell me he should be shunted to Court 1. No other tennis country would put their only player left in the tournament on anything outside centre court at this stage of a tournament so I dont see why Wimbledon authorities should!

You can queue for Court 1 as well. So I don't get your logic. Anyway Murray's chances of winning the tournament are smaller than zero.

Well, if Nadal is injured he'll at least get to the final, that would be an accomplishment already and enough to dirve all Brits crazy. ;)

Actually I do see Murray winning Wimbledon this year only if he plays Fish in the semis and Tomic at the finals. ;)

Or, it's just 6>2 and Brit>Spain.

There is no rain forecast until the evening in London as far as I know, so Djokovic and Nadal may even be finished by then with their routine 3 set wins, bu even if they have too, they could move Nadal to centre to finish his off.

Im not complaining at all, but im glad u were mistaken :D

06-29-2011, 03:06 PM
Nadal - Fish is gonna be a routine 3 set match win. Tsonga however, will take a set off Fed.

the only thing that would ease my frustration over rafa being bumped from centre court would be for roger to lose to jo-willy today.. allez, jo-willy, ALLEZ! :devil:

I just cant believe that the HAAS-KOHLSCHREIBER match is on court 19 which is not televised. i thought that they couldnt do any worse by not putting Almagro vs Rochus on a televised court, but this decision tops it by far.

I think the vast majority of tennis fans would agree that its one of the two most intresting first rounds matches along with Nalbandian vs Tipsarevic. Dont know what went through their heads when they made that aweful decision :mad:

Perhaps the same folks responsible for the website are in charge of assigning matches. These decisions are starting to look like flat-out incompetence. I'd love to hear the reasoning behind this, because someone at the AELTC must realise that Fognini v. Llodra/Rochus v. Almagro/Kohli v. Haas are highlights of the first round, and what's more the British tennis audience won't even be able to check out the form of Karlovic-Murray's possible 2nd round opponent-either. The Croat's stuck out on court 19 too.

They should ensure Nadal gets a walk-out there in the first week also, for at least then there'd be consistency in the madness.

Didnt notice that until you wrote it. unbelievable !!!

Maybe im biased because im Israeli but i think that Sela-Karlovic match should also be televised. Dudi has a very nice and watchable game that suits grass. He reached the 4th round in 2009. Cant understand that decision either especially after seeing that the Soeda and Kunitsin game is televised.

Wimbledon going for the safe option for a change, putting both top 4 seeds on Centre. Tsonga, Hewitt or Roddick woudl usually warrant a bump but it's no big deal. In the first week Centre and Court 1 are almost interchangeable.

Has anyone looked at the schedule for Monday? It makes absolutely no fucking sense- two relatively boring matches with Nole and Fed are on center, with Azarenka(VOMIT), while Murray Cilic(you know, the guy they wait forever to see) and a competitive Del Po-Ferrer on court 1 with Sharapova, #1 seed and former champ. And 4 time champ Serena is back on court 2. Clijsters, in possibly her last match ever at Wimbledon(kerber is tough) is wait out on court 3. With rain in the forcast, this could be a gigantic shitshow.

I don't like it any more than you do, but Wimbledon do at least TRY to be fair.

It`s impossible to please all the top guys if they have "Middle Sunday" and they schedule all R4 matches in one day.It could have been better but it could also have been worse.If Nadal was still in the tournament,Del Potro/Ferrer would have probably been on an outer court somewhere.Also if Murray wouldn`t have finished yesterday,it would have been even tougher to make a fair schedule.

Federer - Malisse is 1000 times more interesting to watch than Del Potro - Ferrer, especially in Wimbledon. Even if Malisse loses 6-3 6-3 6-3 he will find a way to entertain the crowd. But i agree that Cilic - Murray should be on the CC.

Of course it's impossible to put everyone on center, but this doesn't make sense. And with Clijsters, Serena and Sharapova to choose from, they go with Azarenka on center? :mad:
