French Open scheduling, questions and moaning Thread

Putting a mens match last on court is a bit stupid... Don't see why it's done, now Federer will definitely make the semi's regardless of who wins.

Of course they put Federer and Djokovic on court before these 2 matches currently going on though. :rolleyes:

The scheduling here and at US Open is terrible. Although RG consistently have matches postponed throughout the tournament. When you are having to conclude matches the following day when there isn't any rain delays you need to rethink the scheduling.

All they have to do is have floodlights or something, right now it's just beyond pathetic how unfair it gets. Berdych and Del Potro may have to play another 2 sets tomorrow just to win and then go out the next day and play Federer.

Federer is basically 31 and has played 1000+ matches. Del potro is 23 and berdych is 26 and they are playing on clay which is much easier on the body and in not very hot conditions.



They will both be fine and the fact that federer at his age has played 3 straight 4 setters it will actually be about even in terms of how fresh these guys are.

Lets not forget djokovic played 2 grueling matches on hard court beating both murray and nadal out of all people and he's 24-25.
We're talking about very young guys with low miles on their body playing on the easiest surface for the body in very mild temperatures.

Whats really sad is that Federer is going to lose against either of them with his shit form anyways. It will make it hurt that much worse for fed fans given how he had rest days and his potential opponent did not.

Federer can no longer play like shit for a few rounds and suddenly summon up his great form in a big match. Everyone will see this tuesday and this is sad that he peaked too soon this year.

True.

What's worse is Berdych vs Del Potro is most likely to be scheduled 2nd on court (the usual shit they do) and the first match being a mens match could take quite a while to complete. :facepalm:

From R1 to R4 having a roof on one court is pretty much near pointless if the rain is consistent.

And come on, it's not as if he didn't play gruesome matches himself and that he's going to lose to either one ;)

Playing like shit and will be killed by Rafa in the final, so why wouldn't he tank the SF vs (most likely) Delpo :)

Berdych has played 3 weeks in a row coming into Roland Garros and also a 5 setter just 2 days ago, he looks dead! Lets say he does somehow scrape the win tomorrow he's going to come out on Tuesday on fumes at best.

The scheduling is just so naïve.
They look at the matches and then think -
oh, Djokovic-Seppi - that will be 3sets and 1h 40 min.

It's unbelievable! Nearly scandalous.

Why not play on 3 courts!

Unfair because Del Potro and Berdych probably have to play two long sets tomorrow. And this is unfair.

Only three matches were on Chatrier today and even that court's last match didn't make it to be completed. There were no rain delays and even the women's matches weren't very long so you can't even bring the misogynistic bitching here. Shit happens. Deal with it.

From R1 to R4 having a roof on one court is pretty much near pointless if the rain is consistent.

From R1 to R4 having a roof on zero courts is pointless if the rain is consistent

floodlights don't stop rain, they're nice to have so that matches will finish but if there's rain lights or no lights they won't finish. In the early rounds of Rg they finish anyway, just maybe a day late, but once you get to the business end of the tournament having 1 court with roof and lights is miles better than no roof and lights for the outside courts that the juniors play on

The problem here is the ATP and tournament organizers doing their best to get their precious 'Big 4' semifinals, which will bring them the most revenue, trying to eliminate/weaken any possible obstacles. It's not the first nor will it be the last time that scheduling/conditions/circumstances favor the top players. It is just the way it is and it won't change.

We need to accept that these days tennis is as much money-driven as any other sport.

Well, just because it's same for everyone doesn't mean it's the best way. It's understandable when they can't easily put on a roof, but how difficult is it to install some lights.

Gotta accept it unfortunately.
Last year Nole-Juan had a very very late start due to Wawrinka-Tsonga 5 setter. A couple of days ago it happened to Nole again. (Wawrinka-Simon match) I agree with you to some degree but it doesn't always work that way. At least not the same for all top players.

Today actually Jo-Stan match was only the 3rd one, so this is quite an unusual thing.

Would have made more money as well, I suppose. I do agree it is kind of unfair but it is all well-known. I wonder if Delpo's slow play had anything to do with the amount of time it took them to complete these sets. It was very competitive throughout so I really do not think so. Using only two show courts for R4 seems a bit insufficient when matches go on for so long.

calm down : Berdych was lucky that the match was stopped today, but anyway the winner of this match will very probably play the semi.

Berdych just has to beat Del Po 2 sets to love now and he will make the semi, and considering Djoko's form and the two days off after QF, he has a chance for a final.

no no no that's much easier than that : the French organizers and TV expected Djoko-Seppi and Fed-Goffin to be short matches, while Tsonga-Wawrinka and Del Po-Berdych would be big battles. And usually when something like that is expected, the match which is expected to be longer is scheduled second because it's better not making the players who play second wait too long.

If you think that the French prefer a Djoko-Fed semifinal than a Tsonga-Fed, you don't realize Tsonga's popularity in France :lol:

I think that French Open's scheduling is not good. This constant delays due to bad light is just not excusable. They should have better lighting to finish matches. It's like they expect matches to be as quick as Sharapova's or Nadal's (minus all the time he takes between points).

I am not an expert but I would have put Djokovic first on Chatrier, then a Ladies match, then Federer, then another Ladies match.

At the same time, Ladies first on Lenglen, then Delpo-Berdy, then Tsonga-Wawa, and finally another ladies match.

A rainy day - yes, but Rafa - Murray match started more than 1 hour later than Federer's match. Murray was beating Nadal convincingly and would have won that day had they started earlier. Instead, they had to finish the match the next day.

And USO 2003 was pretty shameful too, but understandable - after all Roddick is an American!

Not really. Murray & Gasquet have also been given the fourth match. They just want them playing at the time when the maximum number of people will be tuning in. Also neither one of those matches is the last one on either court. There is no conspiracy here CD.

What the hell are you talking about? How can anyone guarantee that any player gets to the semi on the stage of 1/8th? Are you nuts? Murray has already signed the 1/4th capitulation act? Meaning that Gasquet and Granollers signed them for 1/8th as well?

The reason why Ferrer is on PC today is because the French organizers believe he will finish off Marcel much quicker than Almagro will beat Tipsa (if he will, we have high odds for a 5 setter here). So, they wanted Tsonga be done quickly before the rain today.

The reason why they have Rafa as 4th match today is because they hope he won't even start his match while Almagro have time to rest. The more problems Nadal has before the final, the better chance Federer has, that's all the French care about.

The scheduling remains the absolute worst thing about this slam. Today for example, they have 4 womens singles, 4 mens singles, and now 2 matches to finish. In this case they should move 2 of the matches to Court 1, but it's all squeezed into 2 courts and now if 1 mens match runs long on each court then those last matches might not even start today. I'm sure whoever it is would rather play on Court 1 and get their matches done than wait another day just to play on PC or SL.

I feel bad for the crowds that endure four and a half sets of a mens match (featuring a local, no less) and then don't get to see the ending.

the only tournament director who said that was Caujolle, the director of PAris-Bercy until last year (not any more now even though he still is MArseilles' and Nice's director) who is a die-hard Fed-fan just as the director of Indian Wells is a die-hard Nadalfan. And he also said that because it was a pity in his eyes that Fed had never won it : he wanted to see it before leaving the tournament and he was lucky enough to get it.

But about Roland-Garros you are entirely clueless : actually the president of the French tennis Federation (which organizes the tournament) Jean Gachassin is a Nadal-lover. He also did boo Federer when he had some netcords against Monfils 2 years ago in Bercy and lately the French Tennis Federation chose to attackepersonally Federer because he played the leading role in the campaign for higher prize money in grand slams.

But of course your hatred of the French in general (you probably think they also persecute Gasquet :rolleyes: ) is as big as your hatred for Federer then you probably can't understand that things are not always that simple.

last 3 years it was always Tsonga's half starting first (to make him start well the tournament on sunday), nothing to do with Federer.

Actually Fed is often lucky that he's in the same half as Tsonga in RG, as Roddick in the US Open, as Hewitt in MElbourne, and in the past he also was Wimbledon's title holder or finalist in 2009 when Nadal withdrew, that's why he often started first yes, but it could always be explained by Tsonga-Roddick-Hewitt-Wim's titleholder.

And don't even start on Davydenko, man, it's a sore topic! Even when he was a top player, he still got scheduled for court 17 at RG.

And of course you have no answer to my question about the scheduling because there is no one! Women should have been scheduled first! Yes, we all know about the stupid rule to schedule the postponed matches second. This is exactly WHY the WTA matches should have been the first. I was so damn sure they would be! Don't care if LI and Kvitova, or Sharapova and Kanepi, both pairs should finish their matches relatively quickly. Then Del Potro and Berdych would at least start their match before the rain.

But no, of course they wanted more problems for Federer's opponent. So, they put the men's matches first. The easier one before Jo (two Spaniards on PC, what a laugh! :rolls: ) and the harder one before Berdych/Delpo. And before Nadal of course. Two birds with one stone. Bravo, the Frenchies!

I guess that's the same everywhere in the world.

Even in Russia I always had the feeling that Davydenko didn't get what he deserved comparing to a Safin or even to a Youzhny.

By the way, Chesnokov in his time was also very much loved because he was a funny guy.

In the beginning of his carreer Davydenko was not precisely known to be a funny guy, this side of him appeared later but not as much as Chesnokov's.

Also the fact that Davydenko openly said several times that he played only for money didn't help.

Nobody expected that the matches of Roger and Novak would last that long yesterday, also the Tsonga-Wawrinka match. But that's sport and people usually like to see long and exciting matches.

I don't understand at all the complains which give you the impression that matches have never been postponed before Roger was active.

When there is a chance of rain, Federer always gets scheduled to play first. At 11 am. I remember once at Wimbledon he didn't get the first match on a rainy day and he was VERY angry about it.

When there is a chance of rain, Federer always gets scheduled to play first. At 11 am. I remember once at Wimbledon he didn't get the first match on a rainy day and he was VERY angry about it. Will never forget as Richard had to play against him in 10 hours after he finished his 5-setter against Roddick. Without any reason they scheduled Federer's match first on that day!

Will u stop bitching, like it matters.

Blatant and suspicious? The hell are you on about? I don't need to have a plausible explanation for the scheduling to be able to call out a retarded conspiracy theory when I see one. You're assuming that all the French people responsible for scheduling think the same and all support fed - which doesn't make an ounce of sense to anyone who bothers engaging his or her brain. You're just letting your nadaltardism cloud your judgement and that is really pathetic.

You're just naive. You can't see the obvious things right in front of your eyes. You should have worn a foil hat to prevent the brain control waves from entering your head. Now your brain is being controlled by the Fedtard media. Little can be done to save you now :sad:

What the hell are you talking about? How can anyone guarantee that any player gets to the semi on the stage of 1/8th? Are you nuts? Murray has already signed the 1/4th capitulation act? Meaning that Gasquet and Granollers signed them for 1/8th as well?

The reason why Ferrer is on PC today is because the French organizers believe he will finish off Marcel much quicker than Almagro will beat Tipsa (if he will, we have high odds for a 5 setter here). So, they wanted Tsonga be done quickly before the rain today.

The reason why they have Rafa as 4th match today is because they hope he won't even start his match while Almagro have time to rest. The more problems Nadal has before the final, the better chance Federer has, that's all the French care about.

Why do they put the women and men on court at the same time :scratch:? This happened today and will happen tomorrow as well. What I mean is that first there are 2 women's matches, and then 2 men's matches. Is it that difficult to put the men's match first at Lenglen and the women's match first on Chatrier? That way both WTA and ATP fans will likely get to watch most of both matches. Now, they are starting at the same time so you have to choose which one to watch... It's frustrating!

Aside from their final, I would be content having all their wta matches on park courts. This allows all the men's matches to be finished on equal footing and none of this bullshit play suspended due to darkness.


Really the wta needs to take cues from other women's sports who realize no one watches them for their skill and have resorted to playing in bikinis or topless to draw ratings and it has worked!

Paying them equal to men is the biggest load of crap i've ever seen. It's not done in any sport in the world. Unless they do something unique other than grunting like idiots they don't help the sport in any way.

Last year when Nadal/Murray and Federer/Djokovic played in the semis,it was the worst schedule possible.After a 3 setter and at the end of the 4th in the Federer-Djokovic match there was basically no light.
The organisers need to assume both matches go to five sets and have the proper schedule for it.With no light after 7 sets,says it all about poor organisation

I know,but the organisers should know that a match involing Nadal,Murray or Djokovic is taking longer then a Gonzalez/Soderling match.
This year it will probably be similar to last year,regardless if Nadal would play Murray or Ferrer in the semis.U can`t expect the match to end in less then 3 hours,even if it`s only a straight set match.

The WTA is entertaining in being unpredictable. Something which you can't say for the ATP. Serena, Azarenka and Li Na's losses are infinitely more fun to watch than Nadal's annihilation of yet another opponent.

But yes, it's disappointing that both men's and women's matches begin at the same time. Was hoping for them to start at 11 as usual with the women. They usually end within 2 hours anyway. They should just get some flood lights. Then they can actually schedule all 4 matches on the central court.

At least the WTA has umpires with balls (pun intended). Can you imagine an ATP umpire awarding a point to the opponent of e.g. Nadal or Djokovic for time wasting in a GS final like Eva Asderaki did in the Serena-Stosur match? (though the situation was different)

it seemed to me that they had played 2 men's Qfs on tuesday for quite a long time.

2 women's QFs being on court 1 (there was no Lenglen in that time), they could play 2 men's QFs on centre court, it was not like that in the past ?

Considering the forecast tomorrow I think they should have started earlier (11 o'clock) to give the best chance for the two matches to be finished tomorrow :

I have a number of issues.

1. The behaviour of the alleged president of FFT Jean Gassison, he behaved like a lout in booing Asderaki when she correctly ruled against Razzano on the noise hindrance rule. Gassison should shut his mouth and accept Asderaki has more authority on the sport than he will ever have. He either shows a bit more respect towards people or gets out of the sport and finds an environment where his deplorable and arrogant behaviour is acceptable

2. The selection of the chair umpires for the match. The quarter finals should be gold standard - not silver standard, and we get two random Frenchman doing a quarter and a semi final when they should have been gold standard officials - hard luck if they are not French. To prefer Pierre Bracchi and Arnaud Gabas to people of the quality of Asderaki and Lang is laughable.

3. Too many male umpires doing womens matches - and mostly all French of course.

Hopefully Woodrow could help on this issue
