They should never have scheduled the two remaining 4th round matches to start at around 8:30 PM when it was abundantly clear that they would not be able to go on beyond 9:30. What a bunch of

Re: Play suspended due to darkness

Ridiculous decision to start these! Play isn't due to start until 14.00 local tomorrow as there's only 2 matches per show court. These 2 could've been put on at 11am or 12 noon.

Re: Play suspended due to darkness

they had all day to look forward to playing, and look whats happened

Kanepi and Kvitova gonna be shunted again on c6 tomorrow

its probably affected Vika also more than Sveta who's more used to big matches, it would have 1st time on Chatrier at RG and it was played on 1 in front on a few

Good luck to my favs

I especially feel sorry for Kvitova and Kanepi because this is the biggest match of their life and not only were they given Court 6 but they have to go through these delays aswell.
