yes and more problematic is that they're not all streamed, there are always interesting matches which are not streamed (the worst case was Kohli-Haas in Wimbledon this year) anyway nobody can see more than 8 matches maximum (and more probably 4 or 5) in one day, then it's all a matter of making the best choice.

that's why I prefer R32 or R16, R32 still has too many matches to see all of them but has more choice than R16, that's why I tend to prefer R32 a little bit than R16.

The only advantage of R128 or R64 is for those whose favorite players only have a small chance to get to 3rd round ... but it's only an advantage if by coincidence he's streamed ... and if he is, there's a big chance that he plays against a big guy who is much better than him

At Wimbledon the R16 simply cause everyone plays and it's usually competitive.

actually that's the R16 which makes me feel worst because there are so many matches I can't see

in a lesser extent it's also the case for Wimbledon QFs although sometimes I may manage to record the matches I can't see if there are two TV channels which show them.

I much prefer how they do in other slams although it's less good now than in the past in Roland-Garros.

I have noticed the best matches are in the 2nd (and 3rd) round. Of course I would choose 2nd week to watch it live.

I enjoy it when Federer crushes a random mug like Ramos also.

I don't like it when Federer almost loses to Falla though.
