Another night match is great. I'll be able to see all of Roger's matches during this AO which has not happened since forever . Go, Fed!

I like feds matches. Never denied that. Sorry I thought this was a GM thread. Apologies.

Another 'dangerous' dangerous player.

Hope Roger can get it done in straights but with Jo around, you never know.

BTW, I'm surprised that Roger enjoyed late sessions through AO so far and will do so tomorrow as well. Hope AO organizers don't pull a loonie stunt come SF and schedule Fed-Murray before Djoko-Ferrer. Safely assuming he'll get that far.

That will not happen.Compared to the other Grand Slams,here in Australia they play every day one part of the draw.So one semifinal will be thursday evening and the other will be played friday evening.

Default Re: ♕ 2013 Australian Open ♕ - R4 def Raonic 6-4 7-6(4) 6-2. QF vs Tsonga

I don't enjoy Roger's playing in the night session for 2 reasons.
1/ Against Raonic he needed slower conditions but against Tsonga it's the opposite.
Tsonga needs some more time to get on the ball and prepare to manage his powerful shot, even he knows to hit great 3 meters over the baseline running winners but he can't use them to win the match, so as fast it is, I believe better it's for Roger.

Maybe the good for Roger is he can have a better returns on Jo's powerful serves. And if he can have very offensive returns on the 2ond serve Tsonga can drastically reduce his 1st one.

I love Tsonga but I hope in 3 sets win and if things go bad not more than 4 fast sets.

2/ The 2ond reason I don't like nigh session is because Murray has always played during the day and could have better feeling with such conditions while Roger played only his 1st round when he wasn't still at his best and than was when he offerer some BPs.

It's truth as well that Roger many times has showed his best tennis in the night, but in the night he had some tough loses (USO 2012 is the last). Let's hope for the best and believe in our man. I see him very focussed and now I see him the winner.

the semifinal will be a night-session (start 19.30 local time as well) then it's Murray who actually fairly complains about that, but honestly considering his heaven draw (another injured player in QF) whereas Fed had dangerous opponents (even if Roger the Dodger, who loves ballbashers, has his opinions on that ), and that Tomic was in their half, Murray couldn't have had a night session on Laver arena, the only thing he could have had was a night-session on Hisense or Margaret Court arena, that's what he can fairly wish he had.

But anyway the conditions are specific in the end of this tournament, with colder weather than in the beginning then it will be specific anyway and favourable to Murray.

EDIT : the weather forecast have been corrected and it seems it will be better temperature for the semi than expected (22 celsius in the evening). And Djoko-Ferrer will be played under hot temperature.

It will be windy as well tomorrow for Fed-Tsonga match (and even more for Murray-Chardy, I can imagine the error fest it will be from J駻駑y ), which is good for Roger as he likes more playing in the wind than Tsonga.

I'd love some rain in Melbourne in time for the SFs and final if RF gets there .

I must admit, I'm pretty nervous.
Playing Raonic is good prep for Tsonga, right?
and this is their first real match since WTF finals 2011 ?

Yes, Raonic should be a good prep. And relatively slow counts because of colder conditions should also favor Roger in this match. I'm a little nervous myself even so, this match feels less safe then the previous ones...but we always hope for the best Go Roger!

Funny to think, in 2011 Fed - Tsonga sets an all time ATP tour record with eight meetings, in 2012 they don't meet at all. I guess we're in for a more normal year in 2013 in this respect.

Ok. The night SF is better from the "experience" point of view. I checked that the final is going to be at the night.

I hope tomorrow there is windy tomorrow at the day and it helps Jeremy.
After so a hard draw Roger deserves a little help and playing Chardy would be.

Usually during the evening the wind is few.
