seeing as though Murray will be on Centre against Tsonga, i wonder who the organisers deem more important Fed or Nadal.

well the two top half matches will be first on center court and court 1 respectively. And the two bootm half matches will follow them on the respective courts. That will be thr order. So center court choice will be between Fed/Djokovich as first match and Rafa/Murray as second match.

Based on that Fed will be on center as first match and Nole on Court one as first match. Thats a lock. Then I think they will keep Murray on Center and have Rafa on Court One. Its better for them to have Fed/Rafa on Center and Murray/Nole on Court 1. This way demand will be balanced. Tennis lovers will want to see Rafa/Fed while partison supporters will want to see Murray.

so this poll is wrong. Its not a toss between Rafa and Feds match for center. Rafa is vying with Murrays match and Fed is competing with Djokovich.

Nah Fed and Djokovic on Court 1. Just cause they're same half means fuck all.

Murray is the great hope for us, and Soderling-Nadal is a great rivalry, so they have to be on Centre. Shame they can't put three matches on Centre instead.

not gonna happen. Go and research the last 10 years or so. The top half plays at the same time. So Fed and Djokvich matches will be on and at the same time since they will meet in the first semi. Then Nadal and Andy matches will folow each of those.

SO yes unfortunately thats the rule they follow. SO fed is a lock for first match on center with dkjo on court 1. Then toss between rafa and murray.

I dont know which court to pick for rafa/sod match. I want to pick the court with bigger dirt patches and less grass with more wear and tear visible. These idiot press people should have asked rafa to compare how court 1 plays with his earlier 3 matches on center. But they would rather talk about biscuits.

poll 2nd option meant to be Berdych sorry

I wonder why certain groups of people are making a fuss about which court the ranking players must play on. What is the big deal with the Centre Court anyway? Is it a must for the organizers to reserve the Centre Court for the ranking players? Why then Fed was relegated to Court No. 1 last week? For all they know, ranking players would not mind playing on the rest of the courts (those not situated in the center) as long as the same amenities are existing there.

The reason why it is Centre Court, is the very best plaers only play on it. It is a treat and a honour to play on CC. If Fed is o Centre then he is on T.v and i dont have to watch an average bet 365 live stream. fed was scheduled on Court 1 earlier this week to be fair to the other top players.

I am hoping Nadal/Soderling and Federer/Berydych are scheduled on center court. These are the two biggest matches tomorrow. I appreciate that Wimbledon organisers would like to keep Murray on center court but Nadal/Soderling is a much bigger match than Murray/Tsonga (and deserves to be on center court).

I would hate to search for live streams if Nadal and Soderling isn't on center court.

I think Mannequin is right actually, that's how it's usually scheduled.

Top half play the first matches, and the bottom the second matches. So Fed-Berdych will certainly get the nod over Lu-Nole. Anywhere else in the world, even Paris, Rafa-Soderling would be on Centre Court over Murray-Tsonga but I rather feel the All England Club will put Murray on CC.

I'm going with Nadal-Soderling on this occasion though.

I agree... I'm very excited for the Murray-Tsonga match, but I think Fed-Berdych and Rafa-Soderling should be on Centre. I think both those could be really good, and Murray-Tsonga could be good too but I think that has the greatest chance of being one-sided.

Either way, I think Murray will end up on Centre regardless so I would choose Nadal-Soderling

Well I certainly hope it's close, but I think if Murray plays about as well as he has, it's going to be hard for Tsonga. Whereas Berdych has been pretty dang good this year and Federer always can be erratic, and Nadal-Soderling should be close.

I sure hope I'm wrong though, because Murray-Tsonga could be one exciting contest

Sigh.

In the interests of fairness, and to avoid the scheduling horrors which attend the USO, the two who are to play each other in the next round play at the same time. Fed/Berdych v Djoko/Lu? No contest. And Djoko got his first two matches on Centre which is more than the other top 4 seeds got - they all had to play a round on 1.

The one which is more difficult is Murray getting the preference over Rafa - but hey, this is the BRITISH slam, and Murray is a BRITISH player. While some tennis enthusiasts might want to watch the Rafa/Sod battle, the vast majority of tv viewers here want to see Murray, and the vast majority of Centre Court ticket holders too. Centre Court tickets are more expensive than Court 1 so they should get the matches which most people want to see.

Djokovic and Federer are top half of the draw so they will play first(at the same time).I do agree that Murray was probably going to be the evening match whether he was the top or bottom half but whatever way the draw worked out(who is top bottom etc.)and whoever plays at what time,they were always going to have the two QF's from the same side of the draw on at the same time on both courts.So if Fed had had the misfortune to be on Murray's side(schedule-wise because he's obviously a cert for centre) then it would be Fed on Court 1 tommorow
