The situation with qualifying is exactly the same as last year, actually. The only qualifying matches on the Saturday last year, were those only stopped midway on the Friday due to rain. Of course if Friday this year is very wet, there could still be some qualifying on the Saturday.

The quarterfinalists who win on Wednesday will undoubtedly play each other on Thursday, soooo... :confused:
