YEC Match Starting Times?

Is the first match going to be at 6pm Spanish time every day?

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Eugenie Bouchard, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze


Will my weakness for an hour, make me suffer for a life time?

Re: YEC Match Starting Times?

6 pm to start is so late

The last match couldn't be finished at midnight if there are long matches.

Re: YEC Match Starting Times?

Thanks
I'm glad the semis and final start earlier, the next few days are 4am for Eastern Australia which is worse than when it was in LA!

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Eugenie Bouchard, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur.

it's a question of tradition, i've travelled around Europe and at 7 in the evening every one is at home and shops closed
if you come to Spain you'll see how we live the evening and the night!
you can see a traffic jamb at midnight and the streets full of people at 21
we live the night and for us is better these timetables

Re: YEC Match Starting Times?

6pm? I don't care if thats better for Spain, that's ridiculous for the players. The least they could do is have them play back to back, instead of waiting until 8, then 10pm. Incase of short matches it would be good to get them on court ASAP vs. waiting until their specified time.

Re: YEC Match Starting Times?

the 3rd match follows straight after the 2nd match.

only the 2nd match is NB 8pm.

playing at these times, its not that big a deal, they regularly play football in Spain at 9pm starts..............

you'll get a better atmosphere in the stadium.

Good luck to my favs
