Last year , it was nole vs federer in the second semi when fed was seeded no.2 and nole no.3 , so thats supposed to mean the second seed should play the second semi and the first seed rafa play the first semi . Obviously , it took a lot out of nole for the final.

Now, what surprises me is that this year fed has been sscheduled to play on monday and nole should probably on tuesday with rafa/murray in the following days . This means the schedule is entirely similar to the last year as fed/nole will play the entire tournament one day b4 rafa/murray except the super saturday where again , they will be playing the 2nd semi .

Now, this has to be really pathetic as nole is no.1 and rafa is no. 2 this year , but still rafa gets to play the first semi ....fed/nole would again play second semi and tire off

is this not a shame ??? ???

Re: How do they decide order of play for super saturday ????

I think they assume the first semi draws fans easier so they put the more fan-friendly matchup second. I'm sure that they will determine accordingly who goes first once the semis are set. Since Fed is the biggest draw out there, I would assume he goes second if he's in no matter who he plays.

Regardless on what part of draw Federer lands he will always play second semi if he has to play Djokovic or Nadal.Only way for Djokovic to play first semi is if he doesn`t have to play Federer and the other semi looks more interesting on paper.

Why do you think there's such a thing as "Super Saturday"? Because of the tv station that bought the broadcast rights. Who do you think determines which they see as the greater audience-getter?

TV networks pay millions of dollars for broadcast rights. They always determine order of play. It's based on gathering the biggest audience possible at the right times.

If there is no TV coverage, I suspect organizers determine in conjunction with top players what order of play will be.

it's always awesome , but bad for the fed half of the draw (as they cant recover after the second semi for the final)
