Same reason why R3 isn't officially called Round of 32 and R2 isn't called Round of 64, I guess.
The main reason, I would imagine, is it only makes sense to start mentioning how many players are left when they are a small(ish) number.

I never read an equivalent of "round of 128" or "round of 64" in France.
I took "huitiemes" literally as 'eights' (i.e. before the quarters there are the eights).

when I first started reading l'equip "huitiemes" initially confused me as I took it as "the last eight" but I eventually got with the program. (I'm an American trying to revive my (minimal) knowledge of French)

Default Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

well in serbian its: 'Osmina finala' which is basically 1/16 finals.
I probably don't know how it goes in english, if you start counting backwards: finals > semi-finals(1/4finals) > quarter finals(1/4 finals).... and then? 1/16 finals = ?

Maybe the word I'm missing was my initial question instead of giving an example like 'Round of 64'.

At least its good to know, with the question like this, I'm definitely at the right place

I have a coin toss question. during the murray-gasquet match, murray was asked by the umpire to pick heads or tails. I had always thought the choice was given to the lower ranked player, but clearly I was wrong. what is the protocol regarding who calls heads or tails?

As a tennis official at low level (nationals, provincials) I've been taught that you just pick randomly, unless the player is from your country/province, then you should always pick the other player to eliminate bias.

I have a question I've been pondering for a while.

Why don't the finalists' teams sit in the same box anymore during the Wimbledon final. I know this used to happen, Wimbledon 2008 for example. Has it always been like that? or was that just 2008 and if so, why'd they stop making them sit together?

It all depends on how hard you hit it. But you have to place it well too.

Apparently he would have retired if France had beaten Argentina.

Is there a limit on the number of wild cards one can receive in a calendar year?
