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
