Subject: Bottom half starts

Monday schedule is on AO website.

Jarkko said in his interview that he had hoped for a Tuesday start.
They played the final late on Saturday, fly to Melbourne on Sunday and
play Monday. And actually all the players who played in the finals
today, Nalby, Jarkko, and Auckland finalists Del Potro and Querrey are
in the bottom half...

For women, top half starts on Monday.

They probably want Federer's half to go first, but will say that they wanted
the defending champion's half to go first.

finalist from the half that starts first always has an advantage
