The curse of the Australian Men in night matches

It's become a farce over the years. Year in, year out, they put the best Australian men on at night matches hoping they'll win. Sometimes they do, but most of times they just crash out spectacularly. Last night was a prime example. It's just so funny.

Can't they put on other main attractions and just put the Australian men once in awhile? I mean look at these main players who had never played a night match: Safin, Federer, Ferrero, Agassi. Whereas Phillipoussis plays 3 night matches in a row.

It's Hewitt's turn tonight. I think he's going down. Come on Stepanek!

Hewitt is still alive.
But I agree it's annoying, no Safin(no more this year:( ), Ferrero, Federer...

I agree its annoying to see the same players on at night all the time, but I suppose they just want to sell tickets and most poeple will buy tickets to see Aussies. They should have given Safin or Federer at least one go though.
