Fortunately they couldn't have scheduled Ferru to play on Monday if he's playing the final in Paris on Sunday. Small mercies for the A group.
But do you remember last year? Roger played his last RR match on Thursday at 2pm. Ferru played his last RR match on Friday at 8pm. They both played their semi on Saturday at 2pm. Roger got 48 houtrs between matches, Ferru only 18. I've always complained about the WTF scheduling, I think it's unfair. It's scheduled more like an exhibition event than like a serious tournament. It could be Hopman Cup.
But at least this year the Group of Death will have some more rest. That will even things out to a certain extent. Having said that, I would happily trade schedules if Nole could get exhausted Ferru instead of Murray.
