He is scheduled to play at 12 pm tomorrow.

They were supposed to give him as much time possible together with Nadal. Instead they put Federer on night session, can't be his request as Roger just recently said in Istanbul that night session clay is unusual and he doesn't prefer it.

So what is the aim of it? :eek:

Re: Ridiculous scheduling in Rome: Murray plays the first match on Wednesday

7 more hours after a few days isn't going to make that much of a difference.

Djokovic played today. They already gave Nadal and Murray another day.
I mean, come on. A first match of the week on Wednesday isn't that bad, right?

I don't think it matters, and after a lot of hanging around last week, it will be good to get the match done. An earlier match tomorrow means the chance of a longer rest before the R3 match.

From what i've been hearing, they actually asked for this time slot, means no hanging around all day.

Well he prefers the morning match I guess rather than the 1 AM start and 3 something finish...

Federer could have played today, too.

Well if it's the case, interesting.

When I read "Ridiculous scheduling in Rome", I was sure you was surprised at Fognini - Dimitrov is set to play on Pietrangeli.

Must be himself who has asked for it, he did look very nervous against Johnson.

First match will be ideal for Murray surely, he can plan his prep perfectly now, when to practice, when to eat etc. When you are tired the last thing you want is warming up and down as matches before swing one way and another.

I'm surprised that Federer is playing Rome. I thought that he wouldn't even show up.

More stupid was the decision to put Fognini vs. Dimitrov on Pietrangelli.

Fognini vs. Dimitrov should be a night match on center court.

I'm not Murraytard :facepalm: Federer was free whole last week, and plays last match, and Murray plays the first after full week. Just wanted to point out this.

Having that time is fine, actually better than playing at night.

That women's match will be half full, while they will be lined up for the Fabio/Grigor.
