I thought the #1 seed got to play his semifinals match before the #2.
That's what they do at W.

It's not what they do here though.

Tsonga asked for a Tuesday start due to his back problem - he was in
Nadal's half so that meant the bottom half started first.

Because Federer's half of the draw went first in the rotation the whole
tournament. As long as they were going to play a men's semi last night, it
was going to have to be the bottom half one.

Federer's match against Roddick was less tiring than a practice
session for Federer.
Nadal will have two days (minus few hours) rest and Federer would have
three days (minus few hours) .

I like AO because men get enough time to rest for the final, not sure
why women (Serena) played QF and SF in two consecutive days

So Nadal should have played his semi just a day after his quarter? I'm
sure that would have gone over reeeeaaaal well. ;-)

Because everything has to favor the Ego King. Fedfuckers will try to explain
away this one.
