marat's match started @ 7:30 as well henman's today. only 1 match per session, presumably mens' all week so as 2 give 'value 4 money'.

Tim Henman's opponent, Jean-Rene Lisnard, apparently went to MCA at 3:30pm (after the completion of the previous match) and sat and waited for the match to start until he was told by an official that it didn't start until some 4 hours later! :lol:

I also saw Vahaly (Safins opponent) out on the MCA when the previous match had finished too! He was hitting up, so maybe he meant to go out and have some practice on the court, or maybe he was mistaken like Lisnard!

Well... the official schedule doesn't mention anything about a late start...
It's very bad if they don't inform the players about the schedule!! This isn't a joke!

It seems tham Safin is playing at night again.
