What about Wawa and Isner matches and their winners?

It isn't much of advantage to the top half. Murray and Djokovic potentially play M/W/F/S while Fed and Rafa potentially play T/W/F/S. By the time they reach Wed evening everyone should be level. No way should it be a factor by the time of the final.

Um, Federer and Nadal (and their whole half) would have to play b2b BO5. Not sure why there's no advantage. I am not even sure what this means for Wawrinka.

It's stupid not to play on Sunday because it's already happened 3 times. Why not do it again?

So?
It's a clever decision.
Nadal-Kyrgios winner and Federer-Robredo winner had an advantage over his opponent. Now everything is even.

Interesting. I figured they would start the ones they could (basically all of those except the Isner/Lopez section), but it appears they've chosen to give Murray a major advantage instead. But that's Wimbledon for you.

The ones who will really suffer are whoever makes it to QF out of Wawa/Isner/Lopez/Istomin. They play full best of 5 matches on Mon, Tues, Wed.

Kei/Bollelli will also play M/T/W but they are at 3-3 in the fifth so likely won't play for a long time on Monday.

Ludicruous not to start the Wawrinka and Isner matches today...

Sunday will never be used again on Wimbledon.
