They put Zverev-ADF during the day(noon) session, and they put Tsitsipas-Medvedev, a primetime encounter, all the marks of a classic, on the night session, in front of an empty crowd.

What is wrong with them?

Or are crowds allowed again during the night session?


Either way, this matchup is supposed to be a primetime encounter. Not Zverev-ADF

TV broadcast rights to broadcast the primetime (which is usually evening TV) match is probably worth more money for the tournament than limited capacity ticket sales. It's not that surprising to me that they put the bigger match in the evening slot.

This is not evening primetime though. It's around 9 PM local time, and around midnight in Asia, and late morning to early afternoon in the Americas.

9pm is primetime for the European market which in this case is the most important market. Most people are working during the daytime match.

The 9 PM matches are exclusive to Amazon Prime in France this year which is why a lot of the big names have been put in that slot.

Yeah exactly. Same as what they did with Iga-Kostyuk today. That was also due to the USA market wanting Kenin and Gauff on cable because the Iga match is only on peacock here which many do not have

You can't expect much from these particular amphibious-fornicators, who are the only such ones with which there is evidently something wrong.

Surely you are not being serious?
She is right. We have a curfew at night in France. Until yesterday, it used to begin at 9PM. From today, it begins at 11PM.
