Yeah, that was a true upset. I kinda thought Schuettler would have problems because he gives up so much size to Starace and age.

Seppi is really fortunate he snuck out that first set. Rusedski is surely thinking up some diabolical gameplan during the respite.

It rains all the time in Southern Florida. Especially this time of day - later afternoon.

Sportsfreak, there are lights and stuff, so they can play for many more hours I would think.

They can play like 5-6 more hours, it is approaching 6 PM.

you should learn more about geographics if you think so.

london: 753mm rain a year
miami: 1445mm rain a year

or in other words in miami you have 100% more rain.

London in June when wimbledon takes place: 58mm rain
Miami in March when Nasdaq-100 Open takes place: 61mm rain

Also the courts are build on a very windy place. I remember last year. It was horrible.

I couldn't imagine a worse place to build tennis courts as in Miami on a small island.
