The rain hit hard Wimbledon and the organizers hit some players.
Saturday was a bad day for the Championships as the rain didn’t allow for some matches to take place. Giving the fact that the tradition doesn’t allow for the matches to be played on Sunday (???), some guys will have to play back to back during the next week.
Stan was the one that was hit the hardest. In theory the Swiss has to win 5 matches in 7 days to grab the title. The worst part of it is that Stan is meant to play back to back Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. We can’t see many chances for him.
Roger and Rafa will rest for a couple of days (Sunday and Monday) to possibly play back to back on Tuesday and Wednesday. It would be better for them to beat Robredo (Roger) and Kyrgios (Rafa) in straight sets.
Roger commented “I guess Stan’s section and Isner’s section, they have to play three straight days now. There could be 15 sets right there, long sets. You don’t know what’s going to happen. It’s a bit of the unknown. I mean, these guys are all fit enough to handle it, but it can have an impact, no doubt.”
Djokovic, Murray and Dimitrov
The players in the upper part of the draw will benefit from this as their schedule will not be affected at all. They were meant to rest on Sunday anyway to play on Monday. So they will stick to plying every single day.
