lol yeah i know...can't stand these bloody time differences. Indian Wells has just been shocking, like almost 24 hours behind. I get so confused when ppl are playing, and it's virtually impossible to watch livescores.

can't wait for them to be back in Europe where the time difference is not so bad.

I don't understand why they have to wait till the day before to release the draw.

Because there are so many changes to an entry list like this, they wait until the last minute. Also, if you think about qualifying draws for all the other tournaments (Challengers, and regular tour events) they have sign-in until 9 pm the night before, allowing the guys to get there and sign in.

I don't understand why they have to wait till the day before to release the draw.My best guess is that it's to give guys playing challengers a better chance to be able to get there to be able to sign in and play....I mean the standard for normal Monday-starting ATP Tourneys that start qualies on Saturday is to have the qualie draw come out at 9pm local on friday night, the night before the play starts, so....

Sunday afternoon in Florida is Monday morning in Australia. You can set up your own timezone page at www.timeanddate.com. This is what my old one looked like...

Its now Sunday at 5:40 and the draw still isn't out yet. How am I supposed to know whose playing when if they don't post it?

I don't think they've done it yet. I wonder if they had a 6 pm deadline...

edit: judging by a post on last year's Steve G forum, it looks like it is a 6 pm deadline and draw, so we should have it about an hour after that if they are quick about it.

:lol:

Hard to say, but they have updated the tournament website draw page and taken down last year's draws, so perhaps that is a sign there is something else coming. The one question Justin couldn't answer for me lately was what time the qualie draw would be done today. :ras: for him!

Aside from Mardy, all the Americans have a pretty good shot at it. Bogey can at least make the third round, and by the time he gets there who knows how it will pan out for him.

Tipsarevic/Koubek vs GGL/Luczak - wow

I like how most Americans are out of harms way from the top five. :lol:

Thanks deb. :) I'm a rookie to 48-player draws.
